After a long flight I was glad to arrive at the hotel. The staff were very helpful and the pick-up service nearly as good. Not knowing there are a number of Towne Place Suites in the immediate vicinity of BWI, I wound up at the wrong one. They picked me up and brought me to the right one. That wasn't so great a ride, the van they sent was dirty and the driver not happy since he wasn't normally a driver but a maintenance man.

This is not an upscale Marriott, so expectations weren't too high, still the room was acceptably clean and bright, there was a somewhat oddly placed large screen LED TV (off to the side of the bed), free internet and breakfast included.

The Arundel Mills Mall is a few steps away and the location of the hotel is near a number of industrial and business parks, Ft. Meade and not very far from the Baltimore or DC, if you are so inclined. Not having a car, the Mall was welcome since there are a number of places to eat there and of course if you need something, there are plenty of places to shop.
Don't get a room right off the lobby. The mornings start early for the kitchen staff and you wi...
