My husband & I were traveling with two grandchildren. At check-in I was advised that the hotel would not accept gift cards because we had booked the AAA rate. The hotel is fairly new & clean. Staff is friendly. We opted for the metro into DC so that the kids could experience it, which would have been fine if it hadn't taken 30 minutes & 2 phone calls to get the hotel shuttle to come back to get us when we returned. The included breakfast was poor; too crowded and they kept running out of food. The kids were very disappointed that there was no pool. We will definitely not stay at this Marriott property again.
