“My Parents Anniversary”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

I would like to thank the Staff for making my parents' 39th wedding anniversary a very memorable one. They stayed for five nights and they really enjoyed their stay and the surrounding Center. A Very Special thank you to Gene at the Front Office for going above and beyond in assisting me in getting a special surprise amenity to them on their anniversary evening.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. It is in a good location, next to a "town center" where there are plenty of restaurants and stores. The hotel is situated on a small lake, which has a path around it for walking/running. Check-in was friendly and efficient; we had a room on the concierge floor overlooking the lake with a beautiful view. The room was spotless and had a minifridge; the bed and pillows were heavenly. Unlike many hotels in the DC area, this hotel has free parking (all the time) as well as free internet for rewards members during the weekend. We did not use the metro (which I am told is fairly close and convenient), but instead opted to drive into DC since it was the weekend and traffic was at a minimum. (By the way, on the weekends there are many parking garages near the attractions with special rates; we parked at the Ronald Reagan building for $13 for the entire day.) The hotel was very busy during our stay, but the staff went out of their way to see to our needs. The only complaint I would have is the very small Marriott hotel sign by the road; it is easy to miss and is not lit at night. I would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room overlooking the lake. Ask to see what benefits you get for being a Marriott r...

The hotel was comfortable, clean, and friendly for our weekend stay to attend a Wedding Shower in Gaitherbug. We had a wonderful view of the lake and the shopping area known as Rio. On Sunday morning we enjoyed brunch in the hotel restaurant. Everything was delicious! Our only problem occured outside our room door. All 3 of our keys wouldn't work after a walk outside. The front desk promptly sent up a technician who told us he had worked on this door before. He reset the system and showed us how to use the card key so it wouldn't break again. I would definitely return to this hotel.

One of my wife's cousins was married recently in Gaithersburg and they did us the great service of reserving a block of rooms for the attendees. The staff exceeded all expectations in making everyone feel welcome. With three generations of family and friends every breakfast of the lovely patio would stretch for hours with literally dozens of people coming and going. But the staff kept the coffees going throughout. The restaurant has a good selection of entrees. We arrived around 2am and the reception staff was very accommodating. The local is quite attractive with many restaurants and shops within an easy walk. This was one of the few hotels we have found in all our travels with truly comfortable beds.

Room Tip: The lake view is very nice and try to get an upper floor to reduce noise. (But we were by the elevat...

I got the room on Priceline last minute for a steal. The hotel is gorgeous and in a great location. Seconds from the highway, near restaurants and shopping, and has a wonderful deck/patio over looking a river.

We checked in late (2am) and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. We had driven a long way and immediately crashed.

Unfortunately, when we woke up, we found dirty socks, dirty drinking glasses, and a toothbrush in the room. None of that belonged to us, nor did we use the glasses. (If I think about it too long, I get really disgusted...like it could scar me on hotels forever...)

We alerted the staff right away and they were rightly mortified. Unfortunately, they could not refund me as I had purchased the room through Priceline. (I'd have to work directly with PL.) They did, however, offer me free reign over their snack/drink station, free breakfast in the restaurant, and honest compassionate apologies. PL worked with the hotel and got me a refund immediately.

While I normally would be appalled and never return, I am appreciative of the manner in which the staff handled this issue and I would be willing to give them another try when in the area again.

The Marriott is...a Marriott. In other words, nice but not very unique. Located on a small man-made lake, there are numerous medium priced and medium quality restaurants within walking distance. The lake is quite nice, although the environment is a bit artificial. I would recommend this for a business trip or as a reliable place to stay on a vacation, not a romantic getaway.

Room Tip: A lake facing too is much nicer.

My wife and I spent 3 nights here for a family reunion. The hotel is beautiful with a lovely setting on a small lake with nearby eateries and shopping within easy walking distance. Since my wife is a paraplegic, we require an accessible room with a roll in shower. This room was the best that we have encountered because the bathroom was set up with safety and accessibility in mind. The safety grab bars were properly located and the shower allowed for easy access without having a lot of water spill out from the base into the bath room area. Excellent design! The room was well set up also with ample space to maneuver around, everything was very clean, staff were very friendly and responsive, bar and restaurant were good. The Metro was just a few minutes away with ample parking and access to all that DC has to offer. The hotel also has free parking and Wi-Fi........always a plus so you are not hit with those extra charges. We highly recommend this property to visitors to the DC area.
