“"Very Impressed"---Beautiful Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

My wife and I stayed here for a getaway weekend. We loved the fact that it was a more economical version than staying right in DC and tight on the subway system.. The hotel staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. From the desk help to the bellboys to the staff in the restauarant. Our room had a great view of the area and was very modern and smelled fresh. We had the breakfast buffet on Saturday morning and were so wowed by the food we decided to come back for dinner. We both had the crabcake special which was to die for! I would definitely stay there again.

I attended a scientific meeting over 2 days in this hotel and stayed one night. This Mariott makes me want to stay at more and ditch my Hilton Honors program. I stayed in a room that had access to the concierge lounge and the free breakfast was as good as some paid buffet breakfasts. The best part of this hotel is that every staff person you talk to were genuinely friendly and willing to go out of their way to help in any way possible. My company got a hospitality suite that was on the 1st floor that was perfect for a business meeting/ evening reception.
Location notes- accessible to the White Flint metro without crossing a street- the tunnel comes up in the hotel parking lot. McDonalds close. I did not have a chance to run, but I heard the hotel was across the street from a long jogging trail- accessible behind McDonalds.

Location is good because it's an easy walk from the metro, but not great because there's not much else within walking distance. There is parking available, but it's not free. There's wifi available in the lobby, but it's not free in the room.
The room was average but very clean, the bed and bedding were good. The staff was friendly and efficient. Overall very good but nothing that made it great.

spent 3 nights while attending friends bat mitsvah. Check in very prompt,4 elevators,never a wait.Room looked out over parking lot and at times was noisy as the hotel hosts alot of weddings,conferences school reunions etc. Small coffee ship off the lobby took care of the morning needs--did not dine in the one restauant option-seemed fairly empty most of the time. Air conditioner was placed on the wall where if you had it on would blow on you in bed--room had tiny coffee maker and no ice bucket. no fridge. Room was clean but did smell funny on arrival--some type of funky deoderizor i guess. Every one at the hotel was pleasant and accomadating. Close to fast food and metro stop at the corner was the highlight. Pool area was spacious enough but a lifeguard? Please would stay again but got a discounted $99 rate.Banquet food was very good and we were not charged for parking which surprised us.

Lovely hotel. Beautiful room. Lovely common areas. Room smelled of chip fat. Got moved. Room smelled of chip fat. When i left i paid cash but realised they had taken the full ammount when they took the deposit. Have since found they did this to others. So paid double. as one of the most expensive hotels in the area, this was a lot of money. Had to get my money back from them. DONT allow them to give you a room above the kitchens. The smell is very bad. When i complained, the best i got was a shrug of the shoulders and another key. There are better hotels locally

Room Tip: The best rooms are ones in other hotels!

With Marriott HQ nearby, the Bethesda North Marriott and adjacent Conference Center works, both for it's location and for it's clients. Marriott HQ has long needed a standard bearer for their main brand in their back yard.
After a 1 night stay there I can safely say the following:
Marriott fans and Marriott Rewards Members won't have any surprises.
The hotel is exactly what you'd expect - all business with a little luxury, very little.
Indoor pool is nice, exercise room has a lot of aerobic equipment which is what travelers who work out want- cross trainers and treadmills are always desirable.
The restaurant is as middle of the road as the hotel is - boring but great service.
The bed and bedding are very comfortable.
The staff is friendly and efficient.
The access to Metro is fabulous- the Red Line White Flint station is less than a block away.
Amenities in the area include restaurants, shopping, parks and more shopping.

Room Tip: Ask for a view south or west - it's just more attractive than Rockville Pike.

As a platinum member of Marriott i was treated worse than any other hotel in the world. I was told at check-in there were no rooms available for upgrade, only after I complained of the smelly room I was given did I receive an upgrade 10 minutes after my original request. The front desk staff have an attitude and the manager backs them up. My suggestion they need training in hospitality. If it were not for the conference I was attending and the convenience of the hotel same location, i would skip this hotel. Obviously the front desk staff know this and thus the attitude
