Best place if you're attending a conference there
Nov 20, 2014 by: row_heath from Wolverhampton, United Kingdom
I stayed here for 4 nights earlier this month whilst attending a conference in the conference center which is housed within the building. It was amazing to be able to pop up back to my room upstairs whenever I wanted. The location itself isnt fantastic - its largely a residential area (with lots of apartment buildings) and a fair drive to DC area. There are some restaurants around, but they're good only if you just want to grab a bite anywhere than have a good dining experience. We learnt the hard way that the mall nearby (White Flint) was closed entirely except a PF Chang's restaurant still operating. Overall, you can expect everything you would from any standard Marriott hotel and the experience is generally pleasant with nothing to complain about.
A little disappointed
Nov 15, 2014 by: Denise T from Long Island City, New York, Usa
We've stayed in other Marriotts and were a little disappointed in this one. The front desk wasn't very knowledgeable or helpful. house cleaning was very slow and they didn't replenish soap or shampoo. The food in the restaurant was really delicious but the service was so slow. The room is small and the pillows are children sized. Probably won't stay here again.
Good Overnight Business Trip

I stayed at this this hotel for one night on business. I was looking for something that I could easily drive to from NJ but then use the Metro to get to downtown (DC traffic during the week is awful). The hotel was clean and quiet. I found the the bed and pillows to be very comfortable - I slept very well. The property has an outside lot and an indoor garage for $15 per day (which is good since many hotels close to downtown seem to have trouble handling the height of SUVs). This hotel is across the street from the DC Metro red line - you can see it from the hotel. The ride to downtown was about 30 minutes. A McDonald's is also across the street and taxi's seemed to be always waiting at the main entrance. The hotel is approximately 1 mile north of the Beltway. I ate breakfast on site. It was good but but somewhat expensive in my opinion. I also had a cocktail and snacks at the hotel bar. It is a typical hotel bar with wine, beer, spirits, and bar food. The staff at the bar, restaurant, and hotel itself were all nice and very helpful. The property is non-smoking but they have designated exterior smoking locations. In my opinion the hotel is best suited for business travelers. However leisure travelers, even those would families, could easily use this as a home base if you were to get a good deal on rates (keeping in mind parking and metro fees) or if your area of interest was the Bethesda area as opposed to DC itself. I would stay here again.
Very nice... Excellent service

I have stayed at several Marriotts and this one was typical of their brand. Very quiet rooms. Nice conference location. About 30 minutes drive from Reagan Natl. Service was very friendly and thorough. Rooms could be updated but not bad. Recommended .

Wonderful hotel! The service is quite impressive. Not often do I get asked if I would like my bags carried out to my vehicle parked in a parking lot but that happened here. Also, I really want to commend Jean in the restaurant for her amazing service, friendly conversation and warm smile during my dining experiences. She also assisted with my Sunday brunch omelet order making it, by far, the best omelet ever!
