My spouse & I stayed for a one-night business trip at this recently built (3 yrs old?) hotel, which is still very clean & new looking. Staff was very professional. The hotel is decorated in blond-colored woods throughout, including inside the elevators. The lobby areas downstairs are wide open and spacious. The restaurant lunch was quite good and reasonably priced as hotel restaurants go. The bar was not your typical, warm & welcoming, hotel lounge area. Instead, it was sparse, wide open, and unwelcoming. Not a place we wanted to even sit & have a drink, so we opted instead for tea in the concierge lounge on the 10th floor, which had a much more pleasant & inviting atmosphere, but for the noise from a large group of people gathered around a table. Our room, 205, was tastefully decorated with heavy-looking blond wood furniture, with light-colored upholstery & carpet -- light green windowpane design carpet, light green upholstered desk chair, light salmon & yellow armchair & ottoman, yellow & blue horizontal stripe curtains. The room has a small, but functional bathroom with large marble top sink. Room was well lit, but bathroom light is very dim. The mattress is very comfortable, but the duvet is too hot even for someone like me who is always cold. Although it was a damp, chilly night outside, we had to run the A/C to stay even somewhat comfortable in the room at night. The A/C system was very loud and abruptly woke me every time it cycled on. This room (and others along the same side of the hall) had no view. It overlooks a stone-floored roof surrounded by concrete architectural barriers, which block your view. For one night only, we could put up with it. We had concierge lounge access on the 10th floor, from which there is a better view. The hotel is conveniently located near the White Flint metro stop. It is also in an area of shopping malls, though I am not sure if they are within walking distance. For vegetarians, there is a good Asian vegetarian restaurant, The Vegetable Garden, within a few minutes walk in the little strip mall next to the hotel on Rockville Pike. I'm rating this hotel a 4 instead of a 5 because of the poor sleep quality due to noisy A/C and overly hot duvet; the very poor bathroom lighting; and, the lack of free Internet in the room. (Why do the Marriott Courtyard's have free internet while the more expensive Marriott's do not)?
