I stayed at the Marriott while attending a business conference in Bethesda. The suite was very nice with a large sitting and work area and a separate bedroom. The wifi worked well although at $13 per day it remains curious to me why expensive hotels charge for wifi and inexpensive hotels do not. The staff were completely accommodating to the... More

I have over 890 nights at Marriotts and have been a Platinum for 8 straight years and also a Platinum Premier so I know how to make a reservation. This is the first time ever with Marriott that my reservation was not held. I came to check in last night only to be told I didn't have a reservation for... More

Just for a point of reference(not bragging), I am a Platinum Elite Marriott member and a Diamond Hilton member so I stay in a few hotels every year! I recently stayed at this location for the first time and found it to be average for the NoVa/DC area. The hotel is doing a tremendous overhaul to both the common areas... More

The Marriotts in/around Washington are nearly all outdated, but this one more. The sofa in the breakfast area is very used that I had concerns to ruin my clothes if I sit on it. During the weekend buffet I ordered cappuccino and sparkling water. I found this later on my check in addition to the buffet price. Why can't they... More

I have never had a problem with the marriott brand until now. I am an average traveler and expect the basics: a clean room and to be treated like a valued customer. Well I didn't get either of those here. Even after I reported being bitten by bed bugs I was told that they would investigate the room and get... More

Was here to attend a local meeting and selected this hotel based on location. Rooms were reasonably furnished but dated and the main lobby is pretty standard with no real flourishes. Bed was a bit too soft for my liking. Amenities were standard Marriott. No room safe, which was surprising. Expensive for what is included and internet and parking is... More

If you’re going to Bethesda, you could do a lot worse than this hotel. The front desk agent was very efficient and friendly. The hotel design is what I’d expect at Marriott—kind of bland but okay. I liked how every pillow in the room had a clean pillowcase. There were no throw pillows or blankets that you shudder to touch.... More

Like always when we stay at a Marriott anywhere in the USA.....it remain enjoyable. Reservations being under my hubby's (Burgess) we flew in for a 8/29-9/1 stay to celebrate with my hubby's business colleague as he was getting married. Our flight was delayed getting in. We called and advised them. The front desk representative was very pleasant and assured us... More

The staff were nice, we forgot our tooth brushes and they gave us some spares. They were kind and courteous. Parking is free in the weekend which was nice. The downside is it is far away from everything, you either have to drive or they have a shuttle which goes to the metro. I had a vision of the hotel... More

Marriott should have higher standards than this. The rooms are dated with small bathrooms. I've stayed in nicer Holiday Inn Expresses. $15 a day for "high-speed" Internet at 2 MBp. The morning shuttle was late, and the staff don't seem to communicate among themselves. It's a $15 taxi fare to Bethesda center, and quite inconvenient. I recommend staying at the... More
