This was a nice hotel and the parking is free, you can't beat that. The hotel staff was very pleasant, the area is centrally located by restaurants, bars and shopping. Good for a mini stay-cation. Would definitely go back to the same hotel.

This hotel met all our needs perfectly as we visited family in Tacoma Park. It was a comfortable room, quiet, and we had a simple breakfast in the lobby cafe each morning. The courtesy van dropped us off at our children's home since it was within the range of the free shuttle. A grocery store and CVS were right across... More

I stayed here on a recent trip to Washington DC for a conference that was near capitol hill. This hotel is only a few blocks from the Silver Spring red line metro station, and they have a van that will take you and pick you up from there. It's actually a nice walk if you don't have luggage. It is... More

We were very pleased with the hotel's proximity to everything Silver Spring has to offer. The hotel itself is nice, clean, friendly, and the rooms are pleasant. We used GPS to find the hotel entrance, but if you are driving, you need to go around the side of the block and self park in the garage. Go up to the... More

Wonderful property. The staff were very accommodating & friendly. More than willing to help you out. The lobby & room were clean & well appointed. I thought the mattress was really comfortable. Mattresses sometimes give us problems because we have Sleep Number beds, but I liked this one. It's everything I expect in a Marriott property. The location is really... More

We stayed at this location prior to a concert in the area. Our room was much nicer than expected with new decor. It was pretty big and very clean. Paul Mitchell shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and lotion was provided. Parking in the attached lot was free on the weekend. A short walk to the downtown area, and a 10 minute... More
