“Just what you want”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

A well-designed and well-managed hotel with conference facilities and close to the National Institutes of Health. It must be one of the best hotels in this area, certainly the best of three that I have stayed in. The building is spacious, with high ceilings and large public spaces. Everything works: the lifts are prompt, the wi-fi is fast and is free in the large lobby area and restaurant, the service is excellent and done cheerfully. A helpful touch is the supply of electric sockets by the side of chairs in the lobby by the elevators and along a large table. The restaurant is large but comfortable, and serves a good breakfast; the dinner is a bit expensive and rather average. The location is excellent, being about 200 metres from the Red Line metro station White Flint. Although the hotel is quite close to Rockville Pike, a very busy road, the traffic noise doesn't penetrate. The bedrooms (standard) are lovely, spacious, comfortable beds, quiet and tastfully decorated and furnished. In particular, the art is really nice, as it is throughout the hotel - a lot of care has gone into the selection. Altogether, a hotel above its classification in my view and warmly recommended.

Room Tip: Upper floors are probably a bit quieter

We've stayed in the nearby Pooks Hill Marriott several times over the years, but decided to switch it up a little this time and try this place, as the Pooks Hill place has somewhat dated rooms and just isn't that "special."
Well, we were PLEASANTLY surprised with how much BETTER this property is! From the service and attention of the staff to the quality, cleaniness and comfort of the room to the INCREDIBLE restaurant and awesome staff in there, as well as the delicious menu - This is The Marriott to stay in while in the Bethesda area!

A good hotel at affordable tariff. Parking space is ample. Never had a problem. House keeping is good. Food is okay. Conveniently located, close to shopping mall. However, internet should be upgraded. It is indeed a bit slow. Also lost and found should be implemented in a little more stringent basis. We left behind a laptop charger, which was never found. The reception staff were good and friendly and took care of all details.

Staying here for four nights over a Thanksgiving holiday. Our family has a total of four rooms. The hotel is conveniently located next to a Washington Metro station for easy access to the District. Situated about 10 miles from downtown DC right on Rockville Pike.

The hotel is well cared for. The staff has been attentive and helpful, particularly Sarah and Carlos at he front desk. Food service and housekeeping are all good.

There is one frustratingly poor aspect to the hotel. I am writing this in the hope that management reads this comment and takes action for my fellow travelers. Manager-do not believe what your IT people tell you-you have a problem; the internet service in this hotel performs poorly and is clumsy to log onto. It requires a very slow to load signup page which pops up every time you log on, not just once every 24 hours. Often you provide the information and it does not load and you have to repeat the process again. I had this problem on both an ipad and a laptop. Even wired in a guest room it is slow to log on. This condition is present using wireless in both the guest rooms and the lobby. Despite strong signal strength, downloading is slow and uploading is slower. I travel all the time and am familiar with many other Marriott properties. Internet is a real problem in this hotel.

In summary, if internet i not important to you, I would highly recommend this hotel. I hope that management takes action and resolves the problem.

Room Tip: The corner rooms in the newer wing are excellent.

Stayed here for a business conference. The rooms were nice, friendly staff, okay area. Nothing special about the hotel, the rooms are like every other hotel. The staff was very helpful at all times of the day and night.
The conference center was fair. The food was not great but I am not sure if it was the hotel or the organizers choosing cheap meals.
We did eat at the hotel restaurant one day for lunch and the food was amazing.

My wife and I have been here a half-dozen times over past few years and enjoyed every stay. The hotel seems at first to be situated in an ordinary suburban site. But, it is actually very nearby top-notch shopping and restaurants galore, close to a number of parks, an easy walk to the historic Bethesda Trolley trail and just a few miles from National Institutes for Health and other major government buildings. The metro stop steps from the hotel entrance making travel to downtown DC and all attractions very easy. Most important, the hotel experience is superb starting with the welcome from attentive staff, to clean/comfortable rooms, and the kind of fitness facility with indoor pool I have only seen in the highest priced spas. Remarkably, the rates here have always been reasonable, especially for weekends as the hotel seems busiest with conferences during the week. The concierge lounge available for Platinum members ("frequent flyers") is also very well appointed and managed. In short, this hotel is extraordinary in every way.

The facility and room was very clean, and staff service was very professional and helpful. I stayed in this hotel to attend a workshop which served dinner in the hotel. Food was great, especially their dessert was outstanding (I would say, European style sweets). I would definitely recommend this hotel, and will use it again at my next stay in this area. One this to mention is that a room was a little chilly. I ended up setting a heat at 75F, but I still felt chilly. But maybe just me.
