Stayed here via Priceline. Perfectly adequate, but a bit tough if you don't have a car. Shuttle service in the morning is helpful, but comIng back late after dinner requires a $10 cab ride from the Metro station.

I always stay at this hotel when I visit NIH. The location is great and the staff is very friendly. There is a free shuttle to the subway and NIH. The food in the restaurant is actually pretty good for a hotel.

This hotel is dirty with rude staff. The shuttle service is a joke and the vans are falling apart. I restaurant is horrible and for 289 a night you can do a lot better.

Travelled to Bethesda for business and left wanting more. First night at hotel and even though the food in the hotel restaurant was amazing our waitress never greeted us, asked about drinks or checked in on us after we got our food. She also barely spoke English so when we asked her questions she didn't really understand. My company requested... More

This is a nice place, but it is lousy how hotels like this charge you for EVERYTHING. Parking $13.00 per day, in room WIFI $12.95 per day. Convenient location and nice rooms but too expensive with extras.

I got a deal on Priceline when I agreed to a 3 1/2 star hotel in Bethesda. It was OK, but a bit worn for that rating. Who not to trust? Priceline or Marriott? Also, the towels smelled bad! Kind of a shock after a nice hot shower with their nice aromatherapy shampoo. Also, this hotel is not within walking... More

In town for a wedding--hotel selected by bride as one of the guest choices. This was a Saturday evening. We always stay at Marriott's. The following deficits were noted: 1. No doorman at our arrival and none that we saw the entire stay. 2. No luggage carts even after one staff person sought to find one. We waited and hunted... More

In town on a family emergency. This hotel was easy and comfortable and the staff was friendly and professional. I was suprised at the number of children staying in a hotel that seemed situated for the business traveler. Nice sized rooms with all the amenities except a mini-fridge. More hotels should have mini-fridges. Rooms were immaculate and bed, pillows and... More

I agree with previous reviews that the Pooks Hill Marriott is a nice hotel, but nothing more. We stayed here since it was half the price of a hotel in DC, and we would be arriving late and just needed a bed for the night. The staff was friendly, and my complaint was it there were only enough towels for... More

We stayed at this property March 30th for our recent trip to DC. It was a bit out of the way, but was quite a good deal less expensive than the other hotels downtown. We found the rooms to be immaculate, the common areas very nice, and the Sunday buffet to be adequate. We were originally told that it was... More
