“Surpringly nice hotel just a stone's throw from Dulles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We expected very little from an "airport" hotel. So it is with great surprise that we loved our stay at this jewel of a hotel. The rooms themselves were nothing special and the walk to the room down endless corridors was a bit of a grind, but beyond that we loved our stay. The Marriott club on the second floor had fresh fruit, soda, fresh coffee and different foods depending on the time of day. Met some interesting people there as well.

But what separates this hotel from others is the staff. I have stayed in some grand hotels in Europe and some in the US, but the staff here was equal to any I have ever encountered. They were gracious, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and probably the best-looking counter people I have ever seen. We needed some advise about restaurants and such and they were very nice.

The internet in the room worked, something that you can't take for granted. The water pressure in the showers was consistent and hot and the towels were more than adequate. Cost of the stay was fair too.

The restaurant in the hotel serves a decent to good breakfast, including omelettes that are made to order.

If you need to stay over near Dulles, this would be a great choice.

Room Tip: Near an elevator close to the center core of the hotel would be a good choice.

We had an overnight connection at Dulles Airport on the way to the Carribean. This location is absolutely perfect. This hotel is one of the closest to the airport...and the bus picks you up promptly. Hotel lobby has been remodeled. Our room was extremely comfortable and the staff was gracious. The Concierge Lounge had a good selection of food and the staff was extremely helpful. When we checked in late, the front desk staff immediately offered us a bottle of water.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the lobby OR for a larger room, ask for an end room.

We live in the DC area, but whenever we have an early morning flight out of Dulles, we stay at the Marriott and are never disappointed. Rooms are smaller than most Marriotts, but well maintained and the stay and park rate is cheaper than parking in one of the airport economy lots-even though the property is on the airport grounds. It is also one of the few (if not the only) hotel around the airport in which the shuttle starts running at 4:30AM. Most of the others don't begin until 5AM, which is too late if you have a 6AM flight, considering the configuration of Dulles and the distance to most of the gates. But, we have never been disappointed in staying here and highly recommend.

No problems with the standard of the room - on the smallish side, but very well appointed, clean and modern. But it cost me over $200 per night, and that was with a Government rate. I would suggest there are as good if not better accommodations outside the airport precinct, that are cheaper.

The location is perfect though if you are arriving late at night. There is a modest Internet charge (shame on you - all other 6 US accommodations I stayed at during this trip, across PA, MD, NJ and VA, were free!!) but overall I was happy enough with this accommodation and if arriving on a late flight into Dulles and just needed a handy nights accommodation, I would probably stay here again. It's also close enough (15 mins drive) to the Leesburg outlets for a shopping stint the next morning - bonus!

Room Tip: It's a massive hotel - choose carefully where you decide to park your car because you might be a...

This Marriott is very clean and has a great location. What is weird about it, is how low the ceilings are in the hallways and the bathrooms. The hotel also is very oddly shaped and has multiple buildings, attached by long hallways.

It is an older property, but is up kept well.

The food services, while of excellent quality, is significantly overpriced.

It's a good stop over point and that's it. If you like a more modern approach - there are many other options that provide transportation to/from the airport.

Due to a flight cancellation in the middle of a long itinerary, the airline put me up at the Dulles Airport Marriott. I was grateful for a very comfortable bed in a clean, spacious room. Located right on the airport property, I was surprised at how very quiet it was. The airport shuttle runs every 15 minutes. Only complaint is that there was a charge for wi-fi in the room, but it is free in the lobby and restaurant areas if you don't mind the inconvenience.

The Dulles Airport Marriott is right on the airport property, so the courtesy van is a 2 minute ride to the terminal. Great for that early morning flight or late return. We used their Stay-Park-Fly package so what we paid for the room was less than long-term parking, and made it (somewhat) easy to catch that 6:00 a.m. flight! Room was clean, comfortable, and airplane noise was not a problem. We travel 6-10 times per year, live about 90 miles from major airports, and therefore use the Stay-Park-Fly packages frequently either before or after our trips. We have found that Marriott properties have consistent quality and use them frequently
