As befits a city still emerging from the blight of years of Soviet neglect, Warsaw's hotel scene is literally all over the map. American chains dominate, with high-rise towers, including the Marriott, located in the charmless city next to the Brutalist main train station. The Sheraton is in a garden district farther south that includes many government buildings, and the Hyatt is in Belvedere Park, a taxi ride from most attractions. For grandeur of a rather chilly, Cold War variety, there's the Le Royal Meridien Bristol at the southern end of the Old Town. A welcome development is the budding local boutique-hotel movement, represented by the Rialto and the newest addition to the scene, Le Regina. In any case, location is paramount—try to stay where you're likely to spend the most time on foot, as taxi service is uneven and the cars, as well as their drivers, are not always in the best of shape.
