Glad we stayed there

We stayed one night at the hotel. We were not disappointed. From the moment we inquired at the front desk about a reservation, we were greeted by warm and friendly staff members. We stayed in a lovely suite. The rooms are exceptionally clean and well maintained. We stayed in a room with a king bed, the living area was roomy and very comfortable. On Tuesdays through Thursday they offer a small selection of food from 6:00- 7:30pm. That night it was meatballs with sauce, salad, bread and a few other snacks. We had been driving all day and decided to go out for a bite, so we can't comment of the food. We just thought it was nice to offer it to the guests. The location is very convenient, you can walk to nearby shops and restaurants. The next morning we ate breakfast. The food was pleasant and the staff very attentive. Would stay there again.

This is the best Marriott I have stayed at. The staff downstairs were exceptionally courteous and are literally standing around so they can offer you smiles. My room was $229/night and it was a beautiful suite. It had a microwave and refrigerator and a nice table and comfy executive chair. And I loved the water pressure in the shower! I had really great experiences with the bartender/Starbucks maker downstairs. I think his name was Alonso and he was super friendly and helpful every time I talked to him. I will say its best to avoid the on site restaurant. There were four of us who stayed here for the week and nothing we ate was ever good. By the end of the week everyone was hating the restaurant. It's also overly priced. Example theres a $28 breakfast buffet. I spent $31 on two super small crab cakes that left me feeling sick. I highly suggest trying to find something in the area to eat instead of here. On a side note there is a shopping mall a very short distance away. The hotel has a shuttle that will take you there and bring you back. Other than the restaurant, I enjoyed my stay and will likely return.
Best nights sleep in a hotel

The hotel was very clean and the staff was super friendly. My husband commented on the comfort of the mattress and said it was the best sleep he had in a hotel in months. We checked in late and we still were able to get a very good meal at the bar.
Still a great place in Bethesda

This certainly isn't the newest hotel in Bethesda, and while it is starting to show it's age it is a great value for the money. The real selling point for me is that the rooms are all suites. I stayed here with my wife and son and it was nice to have a separate bedroom and then a pullout couch in the living area. It was also nice that the price was the same as other hotels in the area that do not even have the suite setup. Parking is easy and included in the room price (at least it was for me). The only negative I can point out is that although it is a Marriott Suites, there is no concierge floor or lounge.
This hotel was a disappointment

I chose this hotel based on it's supposed amenities and location. I had a meeting at NIH early in the morning and the web site claimed there was a free shuttle to NIH. Not true. There was a shuttle to a metro station (not NIH's) or I could walk to one of the NIH rental buildings in the vicinity and hope the NIH employee shuttle would let me on. In addition, many of the restaurants listed as "dining nearby" are no longer in business. I would definitely find alternate marriott hotels in the vicinity
