“Updated Marriott Property”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

We had a spacious suite at this property. We loved the room setup. We didn't have breakfast downstairs, but it seemed to be fairly standard. This location was easily accessible to the highway, stores and DC. We enjoyed our stay.

We stayed one night here and really enjoyed our room. It was in perfect condition and had a beautiful view of the neighborhood. The hotel was a little tricky to find using our old GPS, but we eventually got there!

I was in town for 1 night for a funeral and needed to get some work done prior to the visitation. I was on the second floor - I could hear street noise, as well as people speaking very loudly in the hall all night.
I do not complain when on-site, but I would not recommend this to anyone.

The cafe staff did not understand their own menu or simple bar requests (standard mixed drink), flat bread on menu and they tried to give me pita chips (charged extra for what was on the menu) and drinks were more water.

No answer when calling the cafe either.

Front desk did call me a taxi, but that was a nightmare too. I requested a car service and received a Yellow Cab that was to take credit cards (I carry no or little cash). The driver complained. That he needed the $ for gas.......

The ride was going to Jefferson Funeral home was without tip $22 and he dropped me off in front making me walk across the grass which was wet from the rain. The ride back cost me $13 with tip! Clearly different drivers. Will use private serve in the area again.

We stayed at this hotel for a weekend in October. The rooms are simple and clean, but quite nice as the hotel has been recently updated.

There is not much in the immediate area but the metro stop is a 5 minute walk from the hotel. Old Town is a 5 minute ride on the Metro and D.C. is about a 30 minute ride. The hotel also offers a shuttle to the metro for those who don’t want to walk there, but it really is only a 5 minute walk. I recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the D.C. area. Overall, it really is a great value for the money

My husband and I have discovered you really can't go wrong with a Marriott family hotel. This hotel was great! Location, cleanliness, and wonderful staff!! They had a shuttle take you anywhere Eisenhower Ave which is full of shopping and restaurants but most importantly...to the metro. You had the price break of not quite being in "Old Town" but it was a short car or metro ride away. Bistro was tasty with a variety of choices. We had a corner "city view" room with lots of windows...great for a weekend getaway...

We were meeting friends for a football game and stayed here for a weekend. The staff was very helpful and gave recommendations for nearby restaurants and let us know about a fantastic farmers market going on in town on Saturday. The room was very spacious, quiet and clean. Breakfast included was very good with lots of options. Good rates for weekend stays and we will stay again.

We recently stayed here along with some family members who were in town for my daughter's shower. The rooms were spacious and nicely equipped. The bed was very comfortable and I slept very well. The check-in process was smooth and friendly. There is a nice lounge area in the "lobby" that is great for late night catching up. The best part of the stay? They have Starbucks! The location is not as convenient as I thought it would be from looking at the map, but I think they have a shuttle that will bring you in to town. We'll stay here again when ever we're in town visiting our daughter. It's quite pleasant!
