“Perfectly fine stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here for two nights with young children. One bedroom suite was decent price for booking well in advance. Conveniently located close to BWI, and not a far drive from downtown Baltimore. Room was nice sized and having a stocked kitchen and fridge as well as 2 tvs was nice. The free breakfast was nicer than what these hotels usually have. All in all a fine stay with more amenities than usually seen at this price point.

Nice rooms and pleasant staff, but ask for a room away from the adjacent highway as the traffic noise is loud and never seemed to stop. The entrance (lobby area/check-in) is not easily identifiable from the road and it is easy to drive past. Some of the internal signage showing which rooms are down each of the hallways could be improved.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite and were very pleased. The room was spacious, the bed was very comfortable, the full kitchen was great. They have a wonderful breakfast buffet. Everything was fresh and had quite a variety of items. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. We will definitely stay here again and would recommend to our friends and family!!

Spent about 8 days here on a business trip - working nights whilst I did so. They did a great job making up the room when I wasn't sleeping and took care to be quiet when I was. Very friendly and helpful staff. Food was the usual Residence Inn food for breakfast, but my hours prevented me from partaking this time. I'll stay here again if I need to go back.

Room Tip: Ask for a one-bedroom suite. I smidge nicer than the studios.

We stayed in a two bedroom suite with relatives and couldn't have been more pleased. The property is very clean. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was very well equipped though we really only used the fridge and microwave for popcorn. The staff at the desk were friendly and efficient. The breakfast staff kept everything refilled and neat. Right after we checked in I walked to the elevator to wait for my husband. A man with what appeared to be a laundry cart asked if I needed help. I told him I was waiting while my husband got the luggage. He immediately asked if my husband needed help and seemed anxious to help though they have luggage carts and we didn't have much.
The breakfast was very good and I thought had great variety--I was pleased to find fresh blueberries and walnuts .
We had checked online and by telephone onThursday and the property was full but we called again early afternoon Friday and were able to get the suite. There seems to be an unusual amount of booking and canceling in the very busy area.
The building is right on a highway. It did not bother any of us. I didn't notice it at all . If someone was especially sensitive to sound, they might want to ask for a room on the other side of the building.

What a great property! The personnel were warm, friendly and very helpful. This hotel has immaculate grounds, rooms, lobby! The breakfast was great, accomodations wonderful. I would reccommend this hotel to anyone. There are also many excellent restaurants very nearby. I enjoyed our eight day stay tremendously. Two thumbs up!
PS And this is coming from a travel agent.

The staff was very attentive and quickly responded to requests. The facility was clean, the pool was a delight. The location was convenient and easy to get to. The breakfast was well above average for this type of hotel, but typical for a Marriott .

Room Tip: try a room on the "odd side". This is away from the highway
