“Very nice stay at the Bethesda North Marriott”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

I just finished up a visit at the Bethesda North Marriott and had a very comfortable stay. I arrived late at the hotel, and was given a warm and friendly greeting during check in.

The hotel is nicely furnished and spotless. My room was very comfortable and stylish, with nice furnishings, a good King Size bed, and a nice bathroom with plush towels.

They have a nice bar area, a Starbucks, and good conference facilities.

All in all it was a very positive experience, and I will definitely stay here again when I am in the area.

We were there for a long weekend of relaxing & visiting friends - a private convention, if you will. The hotel was just the place - spacious, staff attentive & friendly. A nice feel to it.

We had trouble getting our room by check-in time. I suspect not enough staff assigned to cleaning rooms, etc. Lots of people waiting for a room, but in good humor.

Didn't dine here, so no comment on that. There are many dining choices in the vicinity, walking distance away.

We stayed here for an Irish music and dance conference. Great location near the Metro and walking distance to Whole Foods and CVS. Hotel staff were all very helpful, even with the hotel full of crazy dancers and musicians who were up until the wee hours of the morning! We requested a room with a frig which was great to have. The room was good sized, clean & had nice amenities. My only complaint is having to pay for Internet access, a pet peeve of mine. It was free in the lobby, though, so not exactly necessary.

I was in Rockville working - found this Marriott that is top notch. Great concierge lounge – even had smoked salmon at breakfast! Near many stores and shops. A city Olympic pool is a block away and a Whole Foods Market about ½ mile from the hotel. If you need to go to DC, easy! Right next to Metro. Friendly staff.

I stayed at this local hotel for a 3 day conference and was blown away. The hotel is very nice: good space for drop-off and registration, well-staffed front desk, well-lit lobby, alert and helpfulk bell staff, decent restaurant, but most of all OUTSTANDING SERVICE--everyone seems dedicated to making yours a good stay. It's also less than a 2 block walk to the Metro station and/or McDonalds and other fast food options. Our room rate was less than other budget hotels I have seen in the area (note add-ons below), so you can stay outside of the downtown area to save money but still be anywhere Metro goes in 30-45 minutes (that's better than trying your luck with out traffic).

There are negatives: the parking for our event was free, but regularly it costs $15/day; there is wi-fi, but it also costs around $13/day; one day the maid cleaned/replaced everything, another day (I assume another maid) did not empty any trash, replace any glasses or empty the ice bucket; there are no luggage carts available for loading in luggage, but there is plenty of bell staff. Most noticeable was the attitude projected by everyone you passed in any hallway--pleasant and willing to help! It was so pronounced that the staff attitude really overshadowed the other pros and cons.

We had a great gathering here and I have already recommended it for any future gathering under consideration.

Room Tip: I was one room off the elevator lobby and I had no noise complaint.

This is a good place to stay if you're here for a convention. Otherwise, don't expect "quiet enjoyment" anywhere in the hotel. I'm here during an Irish music festival. Lots of pipes, drums, fiddles and singing in every corner of every lobby. All my colleagues and I wanted was a quiet space to have a drink and unwind. No such luck. I get it. The convention is a big chunk of business but the hotel COULD ask the folks to respect ONE lobby area, no?

Stay here because it's comfortable and convenient but call before booking to ask what conventions are scheduled.

Also, a hotel this size should have more than one small lounge.

I've stayed at this hotel the past three years while attending a expo nearby. There is a subway station near the end of the hotel parking lot and there are resturants, supermarket and a mall all withing walking distance. The rooms and lobby shine with cleanliness. They serve Starbucks coffee right outside the hotel resturant. Only had the breakfast buffet from the resturant but the selection and quality were outstanding. Small indoor pool and nice exercise room with weights, stationary bikes, ellipticlas and treadmills. Highly recommend and will stay here again if in the area.

Room Tip: It's attached to a large convention center so if a large event is ongoing I wouldn't know if...
