I stayed just one night at the Roomers in Munich, Germany, curious about this relatively obscure sub-brand within the Autograph Collection by Marriott. There are only three Roomers hotels, all in Germany. This will be an even shorter lightning review than most.

While selling for over 500 Euros, I was able to book for 40,000 points…. actually a 40,000 point certificate earned as a Titanium Choice Benefit last year. I wanted something near enough the Oktoberfest fairgrounds and this hotel is about a 10-15 minute walk.
Splendid, as they were able to assign me a room at 9am during Oktoberfest. I’d just arrived from Krakow tired as could be and quite wanted the possibility of a nap.
As Titanium, I was also given a voucher for a free drink at the bar that night and was also advised of the included free breakfast for Platinums and above.
I was also informed that late checkout was not available due to the event. I’m not quite sure that’s in the Bonvoy T&Cs, but I didn’t need one anyway so didn’t comment.
Roomers definitely goes for a more cheeky, more adult, more salacious version of the W brand. Condoms in the room and naughty slogans around the property (this napkin is from the spa washroom). They told me they do very much strive for that “party vibe.”
My award booked directly into an upgraded room type with a big spa tub and a balcony. You can see it below.
Pros: Sleek design all around, comfortable, the tub was unique, and the balcony was nice and the rain shower was excellent.
Cons: There was no work desk whatsoever. You literally had to work on the bed. Things around the sink area were quite cramped – and would have been especially so for two people.
Also – the TV was super cool in that you could have it face the bed or the tub. Truly novel and I made a quick reel about it.
However, the room did not include a remote control. They promised to send one up but after two such requests, one never materialized. At least I figured out how to turn the TV off from the default loop – even if I couldn’t watch anything.
The condom was in the same kit as the Q-Tips… I don’t know why but I found that amusing 🙂
Spa and Pool
This is kind of an underground party space. What looks like it could be some sort of long jacuzzi is, as it turns out, a tepid rectangle of bathwater. Not cold, but not hot, I wasn’t quite sure what to do in it. I was given a daybed (club style) next to the pool to relax after my massage. Speaking of which, in a stroke of luck, when I inquired about massage availability, the answer was “How about now?” which was perfect. So I had that and then went to check out the pool. I would assume that certain nights there are parties held here and people party around the pool. There was a bar in one corner.
Free for Platinum and up Bonvoy members, it was quite a nice spread that included made to order eggs (any style) with bacon and some unique waffles. The waffles were incredible. Get them.
As mentioned, near the Oktoberfest fairgrounds – the Theresienwiese. There was nothing else really in the immediate area, though local transport like the tram right on their street could get you to spots like the Old Town quickly. If you want to take a train from the airport, that will save quite a bit of money over a taxi or Uber and run around 12 Euro. However, be prepared to walk a half mile once you exit at the nearest stop.
