I like staying here; I've stayed here a lot on business travel.
Hits: Convenient to metro. Quick taxi ride from DCA. Hotel shuttle from DCA, if you want to save a little money. I've always been treated well by the staff, with some great room upgrades, even on multi-night stays (I'm Marriott Platinum), and they've gone out of their way for me a couple of times to help with simple but out-of-the-ordinary requests. Cleaning staff is very good and thorough (I've had one problem checking in to a sub-par room). Bar staff and Concierge Lounge staff are very friendly and efficient.
Minor misses you might want to know about: The atrium bar is OK, but is brightly lit and can be noisy (a miss if you prefer a dark, quiet place to have a drink); their wine bar has been closed for quite a while now. Lots of families and kids stay here. Food offerings in the Concierge Lounge are sub-par relative to other Marriotts I've visited (warehouse-shopping-club-style microwave "mini-burgers; never any potatoes or meats at breakfast), though the ladies that staff the lounge are absolute sweethearts.
