The Brühl-Arkade traverses the Marriott Hotel building, combining low-ceilinged arcades with two bright, glassed-over atriums. The arcade is characterised by a three-storey balcony bay window above the entrance to the Brühl. The new hotel building thus adapts to the traditional architecture of Leipzig's system of arcades.

Among other things, the Brühl-Arkade houses the studio of the Leipzig artist Michael Fischer-Art, whose colourful paintings decorate the passageway as well as the eastern façade of the building complex.
