I stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott Silver Spring for a Friday night. I got in a bit late around 10:30pm, so the only rooms left were on the first floor (I generally prefer higher floors). Upon entering the room, it was clean and up to Marriott standards. After a few minutes, I did notice that I can clearly hear a baby crying loudly in the room next to me. Not sure if the walls could use some more sound-proofing, but it was loud enough to definitely be noticeable. That went on for about an hour or so, and then I'm assuming they went to sleep. However, at that time, in the room on the other side of me, I noticed some very loud talking. They walked in and out of the room a few times, and it was 2 males and 2 females. They were very sketchy looking, and were talking loudly, laughing, cussing, etc. until about 3:00am. To add to it, while the bed at this Courtyard appears comfortable, the pillows are not. The pillows seem to become flat very easily, and didn't really match up to the pillows I'm used to at other Marriott properties. Overall, the room was clean, the service at the front desk was good as usual, and we got the room at a great rate. Unfortunately, the sleep quality could be improved.
