The hotel provides a shuttle every 30 min to the Medical Center metro stop (picking up in the parking lot just to the right of the Metro exit. The hotel is about 10 minutes from NIH/Medical Center and the staff are great, especially the evening attendant in the Executive Club. The rooms and furnishings are on the slightly older side,...

I have stayed at a lot of Marriott properties and know what to expect in terms of service and amenities. This hotel is in a nice area of Bethesda and very close to NIH and Walter Reed Naval Hospital. The hotel offers a shuttle service every 30 minutes to the NIH/Bethesda Metro station on the Red line, which is very... More

We've been staying at this hotel for several years for a yearly soccer tournament. Every year it's gotten more outdated without an effort to update. The rooms are small and the bathrooms are ridiculously small. There's way too many hotels to choose from for the same price. If our team stays there next year we will stay at a different... More

Very pleasant and comfortable room. It was ready before specified check in time allowing us lots of time to prepare for wedding attendance. Reasonable check out time for sleeping in. Bed with comforter and duvet cover was quite luxurious.
