I was very pleasantly surprised at how big the suites were. We were getting together with classmates of my husbands and we all were booked on one floor.

Stayed at the Bethesda Marriott July 19 to July 23. I found all services performed with a smile but what I found to be even more welcome was the way the guest service staff went out of their way in order to answer any questions. The shuttle service was most accommodating and I thank them sincerely for the ability to... More

Stayed the Bethesda Marriott for a couple of nites on a business trip with a group. We also rented a conference room for meetings over couple of days. Overall I like this hotel but it's a bit hard to rate as it's undergoing a fairly extensive renovation. Certainly the low rate we paid was very attractive and we were never... More

I stayed here at the Bethesda Marriott for a week (July 13-19) during the National Young Leaders Conference. I have to say that I was very impressed. The beds and cots were very comfortable.

$15 to park, but was comped at check out. The front desk clerk was very rude, had the personality of a turd, so that set me off from the start.

This hotel is very easy to find just off 495. The entrance is well marked and the grounds are lovely. Upon entering the hotel for check-in, the bell man to the right stood there leaning on the stand and when I asked where check-in was he seemed annoyed. Check-in is to the left and back. Not very intuitive as you... More

My family and I stayed at the hotel this past weekend while attending a wedding. The group rate for the wedding was quite reasonable by DC standards.

This is a very good Marriott, but beware that they are doing major construction on the exterior, and for the next several weeks it is likely to be VERY noisy from 8-4 pm weekdays.
