Decent Hotel For Its Price
Apr 24, 2015 by: Jaundice1012 from Davis, California
Overall it is a decent hotel for its price, but with a fair amount of nickel and diming it loses some of that shine. I'd give it a 3.5 if I could. Pros: + 5 star staff + very comfortable bed + excellent shower & bathrooms + thoroughly comfortable Cons: - pay parking - pay breakfast (though quite tasty) - pay wifi - gym is so-so Either/Or: * standard pool and jacuzzi * immediate dining & metro access are limited * relatively easily accessed from highway

Everything is near perfect at this hotel next door to their world headquarters. You may be sitting in the cafe and see Bill Marriott walk in. The cafe is my favorite. The ladies in the cafe are the very nicest, most pleasant and consistently professional. This is a training ground if anyone wishes to train a staff. I have been here at least 25 times and never am I disappointed. Oh-try the crunchy toast. Fantastic.
Solid All Around

Comfortable and well designed suites make for a relaxing landing place. The desk staff and the wait staff were quite welcoming and helpful, and the gym has the necessary basics. The breakfast buffet was a little flat, but the breakfast off the menu was hearty and tasty. My only gripe: why charge extra for parking? Given the location of the hotel, you need a car to be there--adding a parking fee has a nickle-and-dime feel very much at odds with the rest of the experience: for example, the free wi-fi.
Meets all the basic needs

The suite was spacious, clean, and comfortable. Bed was fabulous! Decor was not modern or sleek, but also not too outdated.While the French doors separating the living room and bedroom are quite lovely, they don't do much of any real separation of noise or light . Parents take note: your kids will be able to see the lights on in your room and viceversa. This caused us some trouble when trying to put our toddler asleep in the living room while staying up in the bedroom. This is not a true suite in that sense. Also I was very disappointed with the balcony because our screen door was broken and hanging off the hinge when we walked in. What kind of hotel presents guests with broken doors?! And at the price we paid it was very upsetting. They did send someone up to fix it within about an hour of my call, but by the morning it was broken again. If we were staying longer I would have asked for a different room. Being a frequent traveler I take this kind of thing as an indication that something is wrong-either with the hotel itself (ie, old, falling apart ), or with the way it is being managed. Either way it's enough to make me not stay here when in the area again. there are so many other options in Bethesda ! In terms of Location, it's right off route 270. Behind the Hotel Is a very nice, but very short, walking trail alongside a pond. There is nowhere to go (to eat or buy water/ fruit) within walking distance except for the Montgomery mall (which does have a pretty impressive food court!).

We usually stay in either DC or Arlington but we had to get an early start so we figured to stay in Maryland just outside DC. This hotel is really nice. It is large, has parking for a fee, an indoor/outdoor pool, a restaurant and room service. What was really nice is that it is a true suite with a beddroom that has a door on it so it was great for us and our daughter. The staff at the front desk were really nice and helpful and as we only stayed one night did not have a chance to really get to use all of the hotel's services.
