We have stayed at the Bethesda Mariott Suites many times over the past 20 years, and have come to the conclusion that the best thing about the Democracy Grill is the breakfast and brunch offerings and service.
This is especially good when a visitor doesn't want room service, or having to go off premises for breakfast. Also the PRICE IS RIGHT!!!!
The Democracy Grill is on the lobby floor of the hotel and also has an outdoor patio, used in better weather.
Their is always offered a daily breakfast buffet, along with alacarte off of the menu. I often order the alacarte bagel and smoked salmon breakfast, which is more than ample and nicely presented.
However, on the weekends, and holiday times there is a breakfast brunch. The brunch, is outstanding with all brunch items and special made to order stations, eggs, pancakes, waffles, etc.
The servers, are courteous and attentive, giving unlimited servings of juices, coffee, tea or other soft drink beverages.
