Zurich-Marriott (downtown) Distance from Train Station

I have a reservation at the Schweizerhof and also at the Marriott. I know the former is right across the street from the train station, and I know how highly rated on TripAdvisor it is, etc., etc., but the Marriott offers more in my particular circumstances (I'll skip those details).
I really want to know if the Marriott is, in fact, within walking distance (wheeled luggage) in ANYONE's opinion from the train station.

Please, PLEASE don't anyone be like the former poster who always responded with.."It's the OBVIOUS choice" and NEVER gave ANY rationale.

Thanks.

Marriott is the ugly highrise building just across the river from the front side of the main station.
Are 300 m a "walking distance" for you?

I've walked it before. Maybe 5-10 minutes, tops. Not a problem, unless it is really nasty weather. flat sidewalks the whole way, so wheeled luggage won't be a problem.

Have stayed at the Marriott too. Although it is a high-rise, the rooms are quite nice, with a Swiss touch. It has a good gym and a pool with sundeck.

As travelgourmet said, walking with wheeled luggage is no problem at all (at least if it is not raining cats and dogs).

We also used the hotel's airport shuttle (which is quite expensive) and a taxi to the hotel (more economical if you are more than one person). Train is most economical and t is convenient.
