“Home to the Marriott Key Bridge again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Returning to the Key Bridge was like going home, oh yeah, I was going home. The Elite desk welcome was a very nice touch. I believe her name was Phyllis, and she checked me in quickly and got me into my room. I almost lived her a few years back so know the area and it felt like home. Great bed and the concierge lounge was well run as usual. I was very pleased with. The breakfast buffet was excellent on the weekend.

We stay here frequently since my child goes to school in the area. It is always clean and comfortable. Very convenient to great shopping and restaurants in Georgetown, just a short walk over the bridge.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

I recently stayed at this property while producing an event at The Wardman Park Marriott. That particular property was sold out, so I selected this one because it was fairly (4 miles or so) close by. The room was TINY and the bathroom was almost too small to be functional. My stay there came right off a week in an enormous suite in Las Vegas, so I may be a little biased, but...

The lack of free internet was a headache. Breakfast was pretty good. Parking was wonderful.

Biggest gripe? The bar closed at 12PM sharp. No warning. No nothing. On a Friday night.

The staff was very nice, which is always the most important aspect. If I return, I will be certain to select a higher floor and do some research as to what else there is to do around the property in the evening.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor facing the river.

Location, location, location! I have stayed at this property as Marriott Gold Elite member a half a dozen times or more. 10 minute walk to a safe metro or stroll into Georgetown across Potomac bridge.A, $15 taxi from DCA airport makes this ideal location.
Inside the staff is excellent and helpfully moved us to an upgrade which we were entitled to once a weekend wedding party finished. Ask for a river view.
The standard room (before upgrade) is small,comfortable pillow top bed, but no bath mat to greet your cold feet on the tile.
Most disgusting was the men's lockers in the pool area changing room! Left over from ww2? (the Pentagon surplus?) Rusted out and shockingly shoddy. Why a lifeguard when he was downstairs watching wrestling in the weight room when upstairs swimming teens might be in trouble? Hot tub is great but look up to see peeling paint on the pool area ceiling. Breakfast buffet (be sure you ask for a coupon) on weekend when concierge level closed is fantastic-omlette station so typical of Marriott. Our room 1494 had great view but next door was a smoker and the smell drifted through disturbingly. I will come back but if there was a comparable across the street I might try them out. The Marriott father and son team would not be happy this property is slipping into less than what is expected from this otherwise very fine chain.

This is a typical Marriot Hotel. Same room style as everywhere. Location well located to discover Washington, Georgetown, Arlington and the surroundings. Staff was very friendly and helpfull if you needed direction or advise. Parking enough available and easy access with your hotel key card.
The bar is nice and for breakfast you have a decent Starbucks. The Underground station is only a 5 Minutes walk and the Georgetown area is entered by crossing Key Bridge.

This hotel is a mixed bag. On the plus side, you are easy walking distance to M street and Georgetown U. Also, the view of the Potomac and Georgetown are great. The hotel lobby is new and the bar is also quite nice. The rooms? Well, not so great. They are tired and in need of refurbishing. Mildew in the shower and old furniture in the rooms. We stay here when we visit our student at Georgetown U because it is very convenient and we do not need a car. Otherwise, we would stay elsewhere. Great value compared to other Gtown hotels.

Room Tip: They have Jr suites that you cannot book online. They are only $20 more per night, have a separate l...

I recently stayed here for the first time and may switch my 'regular' DC location to be this one. It is a bit of a walk to the Metro (five-six minutes), but that is the only detriment. The view is excellent and the location is quiet relative to being downtown. I did get a high room and had a great view across the river to Georgetown and of the river itself. Arrived on a Sunday evening and the yacht traffic was quite elegant. Room was decent, the service had forgotten soap which was quickly fixed. The desk phone did not work, and that did not get fixed while I was there. Evening appetizers were a complete dinner, breakfast buffet was OK. Service all around very attentive and friendly.

Room Tip: Higher floors have the views.
