Great stay here. It's such an easy entry into DC, 5-10 drive to airport and the shopping mall. Parking is at a premium and the garage was full due to a conference but otherwise the rooms themselves are well maintained, felt clean.

This hotel is beautiful! We stayed here four nights to work a business convention held in the hotel's ballroom, so we were inside their building the majority of our time in town. We were pleasantly surprised by the friendliness and helpfulness of every single staff member we encountered. I mean literally every employee of the hotel was awesome. I can't... More

I had a great experience before I even arrived. My flight was delayed for weather, and I called to make sure my reservation would remain open until midnight. The agent (Elana) confirmed it would, and my check-in went smoothly. All the staff were courteous and professional and always seemed to go out of their way to be helpful. I did... More

My boyfriend and I came to D.C. right after New Years so the hotel was almost empty which was a plus! We love quiet.The location is great! It seems everywhere you need to go takes 20 min. I loved the subway they have located near the hotel to get to downtown which made everything super convenient! My bed was extremely... More

I am a Platinum member with Marriott properties. I have stayed at this property three times since November 2014. This last time, I had to call maintenance 4 times for the air/heat, TV, TV again, and air/heating unit again. Very frustrating. In addition, all three times I have stayed, dirty glasses and silverware (not the trays) just pieces could be... More

I have stayed at this Marriott property several times over the years. This time was the worst by far. Started with check in. Young lady who did not speak a lot of english checking me in. My pet peeve at this hotel are the noisy elevators with people coming out of them at all hours of the night. I asked... More

We have stayed at this Marriott several times and it is fantastic. The location is great for getting into DC easily. The Metro station is right in the bottom of the building - you don't even have to go outside. There are great options for breakfast - they have a wonderful little hotel restaurant, there is Einstein Bagels and a... More

I have stayed at this hotel on 3 occasions; all of them were for business. In addition to the great customer service and comfortable rooms/beds, the location is perfect. You are within walking distance to great shopping, theaters, and restaurants. If you want to go in to DC, the Metro is right under the hotel.

I believe all of the rooms have been updated and are very nice and comfortable. Some of the areas of the hotel are still being updated but are either not noticeable or certainly not a distraction. The location near Reagan National Airport, the Pentagon and the Pentagon Row Mall and shopping area are a plus. There is a tunnel that... More

I have stayed here twice - once for a conference, once for a family trip. For the conference, we stayed in a regular double room. For the family trip, we stayed in a connecting room with suite. For the price we paid, it was a great deal. As others have noted, the hotel offers many conveniences being that it is... More
