Every employee I met was very polite and offered a "Good Morning", "How are you, Sir". The entrance and common area's were well maintained. The check in/check out process was smooth and the employees were very friendly. The only issue I had was twice during the week they did not empty the trash in the kitchen area or bathroom. The...

I stayed here on a business trip and it was perfect. Breakfast every morning and evening reception Monday-Wednesday. Very close to restaurants and bars. Within walking distance of the White House and National Mall. Nice walk in shower. Only complaint is that the gym was very small, only 3 treadmills and small set of dumbells.

This was my first time to Washington D.C. We went for my 8 year old son's spring break. I wanted to stay close to the tour sites & hustle & bustle of D.C. I was not disappointed. Check in is at 4 but my flight came in at 10:30. After eating and waiting for my bags to fly in, we... More

We stayed in Washington at the end of a very cold snowy period. Due to the weather, our flight was delayed but a quick call to the hotel secured a late check in. On arrival we were greeted exceptionally well and got an upgraded one bedroom suite. This turned out to be the best freebie ever because it meant we... More

We stayed for one night in March, on our way from the warm South to the chilly North. I chose this hotel because we like staying at Marriott properties, it had a great location and also a great weekend price (AAA rate). For the Marriott Gold and Plats memebers reading this, we did not get any room upgrade, but it... More

The hotel is in walking distance to the convention centre and the White House & Mall. Some good restaurants are nearby but NO shops. Rooms are spacious and have a fully equipped kitchen. Breakfast ok but with a limited choice. The hotel is clean but rooms are a little tired and in need of upgrading.

We stayed here for our vacation in April. The location was great - close enough to the Metro stations and National landmarks. We were able to walk to almost all the tourist attractions. Room was clean and had a tiny kitchen area. The housekeeper had ran the dishwasher which left us with wet carpet. But we toughed it out vs... More

This is located close to White House and is a cool place - not great not bad. Being a residence inn, expectations of a full-fledged hotels are not up to that mark.
