I found there everything I was looking for and a lot more. It is a tranquil oasis in the middle of a small spa town. All city's highlights are within a walking distance but the hotel is in a quiet street a bit aside from the center. Which means that your sleeps will be undisturbed, you will be able to relax and enjoy the atmosphere of old times and, still, you will be connected with both the nature and the city adequately.
The food is excellent. There is everything one could think of at breakfasts, including porridge, crispy beacon, ham and cheese, omelettes...whatever. Good coffee including espresso/cappuccino/latte, large selection of tea. There is a small snack served between 11:30 and 13:30 - soup, salads and usually one main course. Dinner is the day's highlight, although it is not exactly the "haute cuisine". Rather a "German style" cooking. Very tasty, though. There is a six course menu served on Saturdays.
Rooms are adequate, neither large nor small. Bathrooms are large enough but bathroom facilities are limited. No hair conditioner, no body lotion is provided. There are no convenient shops nearby, unfortunately, but some decent cosmetic stuff is available at the spa reception. There are bathrobes and slippers in the room. Spa towels are exchanged every day. No coffee/tea making facilities.
The spa area is the best part of the hotel - five swimming pools, four saunas. Swimwear is not allowed in the saunas, which can be surprising/inconvenient for English and French.
I particularly liked the Edwardian library adjoined with a nice lobby bar and a large terrace. There is a live jazz or piano music almost every evening. Cocktails and other drinks are served the whole day at affordable prices.
This hotel is mostly occupied by elderly Germans. Which is nice for those seeking peace, not so nice for young couples enjoying nightlife and partying. However, generally, Marienbad is not exactly the right place for the latter anyway :-)
