I was pleased at the rate given for our stay. I will say this was a very busy hotel. It is located with easy access on and off the interstate. It's a very spread out hotel, so make sure you familiarize yourself with logistics. I appreciate the free self parking with use of your room key. It was a hectic... More

The Bethesda Marriott is a great business hotel. Very friendly staff at the front desk, smooth fast check in. Service in general is typical Marriott, friendly & efficient. The hotel facilities are well maintained. There were two things I was unhappy with that might nor might not be issues for travelers. There are no rooms that have two Queen sized... More

Hotel itself was average at best, if you have mobility issues this is laid out like a spoke and everything requires a walk, elevators, parking, you need to stay elsewhere, if you need a refrigerator for meds, go elsewhere, they took ours, reserved when original reservation made, they removed a day early, no explanation, it was just gone.

This place worked out for us and the price wasn't exorbitant. But the room wasn't well vacuumed, the bathroom was very dingy and they left us without towels the second night. The sheets were very worn and not entirely clean. Thin walls and apparently a popular stopoff for kids on school or sports trips. Wouldn't stay again, though the staff... More

Dear ldsmartt, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback on your stay. It is never our attention to deliver a room with cleanliness issues to any guest.

I stayed in the Pooks Hill marriott and was quite disapointed that the whirlpool in the fitness center was broken. The hotel also states on its interior signage that it has a sauna according to the lifeguard it didn't. Also a hotel this size should have free wifi, I have stayed in other marriotts that have it but this one... More

Dear Jeremy19446, While it is never our intention to disappoint a guest in any way, we do apologize if the whirlpool was broken during your visit. There are times when a part is not immediately available and it causes us to take an amenity offline until it can be repaired. We are sorry if you were unable to use it.... More

My husband had a week of training for work in Bethesda. This was a decently priced hotel for the area, but there were some surprises. I asked for a handicapped room, but they said there were none available. After checking in, we found out that our room was near the back of the hotel, very far from the lobby, which... More

This Marriott suited our needs quite well. My husband and I were in town for my grandparents' birthday party in Bethesda, and the whole extended family stayed at this hotel. The rooms were clean, though the color scheme was a bit wild. The bathroom in our 3rd floor room was TINY, but the shower was fabulous (great water pressure and... More

Let me start with what we liked. This is a hotel in Bethesda, MD, conveniently located off the I-270 and I-495 highway on the North of Washington DC. Very reasonably priced for the area. If you want to visit DC, they offer free shuttle service every half hour to the Medical Center train station. However, keep in mind that each... More

The "Pooks Hill" Marriot is a great place to stay for anyone faced with the sometimes unpleasant task of long term commitments to either NIH or Walter Reid. My wife and I found that Pooks Hill staff and accommodations are top shelf despite other reviewers complaints of aging facilities. Their shuttle service is wonderful and can get you to either...

Lots of places to eat around this hotel. Nice, clean and friendly place to stay. Metro is right across the street, get a pass and go anywhere in DC then come back to the hotel and get a great nights sleep.
