Spent a fall weekend there, it's almost convienent to American University. It's right off the beltway and so very convienent. Not quite as nice as the Bethesda North Marriott a couple of miles north on the same road but this time more reasonably priced with included parking on the weekend. I stayed there about 10 years ago and it was a little better then. The rooms have been updated as have been the lobby and the elevators but somehow it just looks a little tired. Front desk staff was only OK but it was late on a Friday night with lots' going on. When the school group came in Saturday night it was a little disorganized.
I could see that since I was using the free wifi in the lobby. I don't quite understand why Marriott refuses to give free wifi in the rooms as a standard. The lower hotels in their family do.
Housekeeping brought up extra towels quickly which was nice, when we stayed in the North Marriott last month it took them longer.
