Marriott Executive Apartments Hyderabad is the company’s second-serviced apartment in the country, after the first in Mumbai. The MEA Brand is today’s jet-setting executive and is frequently on the move for extended periods. Staying in MEA differs from a typical hotel stay.
Location of Marriott Executive Apartments in Hyderabad
MEA is at the top of the SLN Terminus. Marriot has its entrance, which is on the left side of the shopping center. Marriot is in Cyberabad, with easy access to the Financial District and Gachibowli, and near the Mindspace and Ascendas IT Parks in Hi-Tec City.
Rooms at Marriott Executive Apartments in Hyderabad
MEA offers three different types of rooms, with the lowest being a studio and the highest being a 2-BHK apartment. The apartments either have a city or a garden view. The city view provides a bird’s eye view of Hyderabad’s cyber city. Even the concrete jungle appears colorful and serene from a higher elevation. The Hyderabad Botanical Garden spans over 200 acres of lush green landscape and is adjacent directly to Marriot. Now imagine waking up to the view. Isn’t that luxury?
The main advantage of staying in Executive Apartments is the size of the rooms. A 1-BHK apartment is 915 square feet in area. The 2 BHKs can be up to 1300 square feet, so it’s significantly more space than most deluxe suites. Each apartment has one or two bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen, a walk-in closet, and a utility room. The rooms in MEA are strictly non-smoking, and there is a hefty penalty for doing so. Those looking for a non-smoking room can upgrade to a room with a private, open-air balcony. Pets are not permitted.
Amenities in MEA (Marriott Executive Apartments)
Unlike traditional hotels, Executive Apartments aim to allow guests to stay with their families for years rather than months. Every apartment has an incredible amount of functionality and convenience. Both the living room and the bedrooms have televisions. In addition to the king-size bed, you can request a rollaway bed or a crib. There is also a table for four, a sofa, and a chair with an ottoman in the living room. The bathroom has both a shower and a bathtub.
The kitchenette has a two-stove induction and electric chimney, a 300-lb fridge, a microwave, a toaster, and other amenities. Guests can either request that the housekeeping staff do the dishes for them or use the dishwasher in the kitchen. The utility room has a modern washer and dryer. Other amenities include an iron, an ironing board, and a hair dryer.
You can do your grocery shopping at SPAR or let MEA handle it. Marriott also offers cooking classes for long-term guests, demonstrating how to use local produce ingredients. The kitchen can also help with the cleaning and chopping the vegetables. The Marriott lobby has a small 24-hour grab-and-go market that sells snacks, staples, ice cream, and wine. In addition, it is open to non-residents, so if you need pasta or snacks late at night, you can get them there. Everything has an MRP. In addition, unlike in hotels, you can have food delivered to your room via delivery apps such as UberEATS and Swiggy.
On-site recreation options include a gymnasium and a swimming pool, with more on the way. Residents can register with partner golf clubs such as Hyderabad Golf Club and Golconda Golf Club. Residents can walk or jog through The Botanical Garden’s lush greenery or work up a sweat at the Palapitta Cycling Park. Both venues are close to the hotel, and Marriott bears the costs on behalf of the guests. SLN Terminus also houses several restaurants and bars and has entertainment venues such as Escape Hunt and Platinum Movies (which will open soon). Residents can also get special discounts at other Marriott F&B locations throughout the city. MEA’s team also organizes themed community gatherings for residents.
Aside from your room, the terrace is where you will likely spend most of the days of your stay. And it is stunning. The Marriot Executive Apartment’s USP is its strategic location, and the terrace emphasizes this. During the day, it is breezy and serene. After dusk, however, it becomes magical.
The terrace is home to Mazzo, MEA’s only in-house dining option. Throughout the week, Mazzo serves a breakfast and dinner buffet. On Sundays, there is a lavish brunch. Mazzo offers bento-box-style quick meals for lunch on weekdays. Every day has a unique theme. I went on a Friday and had the chance to try the Thai meal box. While the soup was forgettable, the Satay and Red Curry were excellent.
The terrace’s far end is being converted into an open-air cocktail lounge. The cocktail menu is still in the works. We sampled a variety of them. The mimosa was delicious, as was a tequila-based concoction called Bulldog; however, the whisky sour was underwhelming.
