I like Marriott properties. This was an OK stay, but next time I'll probably look for something a little different.
It wasn't that the hotel or the service was bad. It's just it's location isn't great. It is located between the Beltway and the area where they service the Metro trains. Our room faced the Metro trains. Both mornings, we were awakened about 6 a.m., and the trains were prepared for the day. It's not exactly like a rooster.
We had one minor problem the first day. I returned to my room at 3 p.m. (we left at 8 a.m.) and found it had not been cleaned. I wanted to relax in the room, and watch a football game. I ended up leaving before my game was over.
There was another "problem," but it involved people staying there. About 10:30 p.m., some middle schoolers, who were there for some sort of hockey tournament or game, decided it would be OK to set up goals in the hallway and play hockey in the hall. Some parents are just braindead stupid to allow things like this. Anyway, we called, and the hotel staff took care of it.
Again, the hotel was good, the service was great. We want something a little less noisy at 6 a.m.
