“September Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

This hotel was awesome. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Nice accommodations. Great location with access to many restaurants and other things. I couldn't believe that there was no charge for parking. Many hotels charge a small fortune. Sade, who works front desk, is the best! Sade went out of her way to meet my needs. Great experience!

This Marriott is 1 block from the Metro which gives you easy access to all DC tourist sites without paying downtown rates. It is walking distance to the stadium and up-and-coming waterfront and within 1-2 blocks of distance of several solid restaurants (Gordon Biersch, Kruba Thai and Sushi), quality pubs (Justin's Cafe, Park Tavern), and fast food (Subway, 5 Guys, Starbucks). Several more restaurants will open soon on the waterfront. Eastern Market with a ton of restaurants is a nice walk (less than a mile) or a 5 minute cab ride away. A CVS is 1 block away. The hotel itself is spotless. While the menu is limited, the food is very good. Staff are excellent and very helpful. I am a frequent business traveler and have never had a service problem or bad meal in the year+ I've been staying there. Decor is fine; typical Marriott. My only complaint is the desk chair that Marriott uses in ALL their hotels. It is awful. Sits way too low even at max height, and leans way back, providing zero back support. You might not care if you are there for a night, but as a business traveler there every week, it is pretty unpleasant when trying to work on a laptop at a desk every night.

This hotel is a great place to stay for baseball fans! It's wonderful to be just a couple of blocks from Nationals Park. As the parking garage was full, we parked on the well-lighted street next to the hotel. The staff members are very pleasant, informative and helpful. The lobby and rooms are attractive, well appointed and clean. Our bed was extremely comfortable for a hotel bed! We paid extra for breakfast the next morning -- hearty eaters who want a huge buffet may be disappointed, but healthy eaters who prefer lighter fare (fruit, yogurt, cereals, light entrees) will be satisfied. Happy to recommend this hotel and look forward to a return visit!

Like a previous reviewer commented, it's the place to stay for a ballgame and not have to deal with the mad post game Metro rush. We made that mistake the last time we were in for a game and it took us 1 1/2 hours to get back to our hotel room. It's also close to the Metro, The Capitol, and the Eastern Market. Our room here was a nice size, clean and fresh. The staff is friendly and courteous. We would definitely stay here again.

Stayed at this hotel with my spouse. The rooms were clean and nice. It is only 5 blocks from the Capitol Building and the National Mall. I had no problems getting around and this was a good location. My issues with this place had to do with the details. The bed was not super comfortable and the pillows were too small, like throw pillow size. The AC was pretty loud. The bistro downstairs was good but pricey, and most of the tables needed to be cleaned and the bartender ignored us before we finally asked her if we had to order at the bar or if there was table service. A sign would be nice if you have to order at the bar. Also 5 blocks from the mall and there wasn't a map to found in the lobby. My husband had some issues with the parking people not explaining themselves enough. I did however like the Starbucks in the lobby. I would consider staying here again, but I hope they do a little better next time.

We stayed in this hotel when attending the Evening Parade at the Marine Barracks. They had a very reasonable AAA rate and all the basic amenities that one needs. The location was actually very good and the area is really being revitalized. We were close to the Barracks but also within walking distance of the National Mall so in that regard it was very convenient. The hotel is what one would expect from a Courtyard and was clean and well appointed. The front desk staff was hit or miss. The gentleman on the desk when we checked in seemed helpful but really did not give us correct information about parking; fortunately we talked to someone else who set up straight or we would have been ticketed. The next morning the woman at the front desk was incredibly helpful about tips for seeing museums and it all worked out beautifully. Wish I had her name to thank you.
