First stay at the Pooks Hill property. Very nice staff, always smiling and helpful. We arrived late for a reserved room and they accommodated changes we needed to the room. The rates were reasonable, but I did not expect to be charged for internet service and parking. Really, at this day and age where all other hotels make this part of the stay, really? This was forcing too many of guests down in the lobby to take advantage of the free WIFI sitting in the lobby so the place looked like a Starbucks all the time. Noisy and the litter of teenagers made it a crowded place. Room was comfortable except for the bathroom which was just way too small for a normal sized person to occupy- even if travelling alone. The bed was uuber comfortable and a Jamison which I understand is common for the full service Marriott's where we like to stay-it was a welcomed relief from a long day and the quiet was very welcomed too. Furniture was a bit warn down and probably needs to be upgraded. Do have some concerns about the attitude of the shuttle bus driver that took us daily over to NIH. As this was our first visit, we needed some help with information about the area we were commuting to and he had headphones on and a smart phone operating and we felt like a bother to him when we asked simple questions that any Marriott guest would come to expect. This was unexpected with this property so close to the HQ of Marriott Corp. .
