“great for location and staff, less so for the rest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

The convenience of this hotel can't be beat, and the attentiveness of the staff is exemplary. For the rest, this is indeed a cut below the Marriotts we have become used to--and come to expect. It took quite a few interventions to receive the lounge access for which we had booked: there seem to be some (intended?) ambiguities between a room on the "Executive Floor" and with "Executive Lounge Access," between the website and the actual reservation, and even between different Elite memberships (especially if it is "only" Silver). In addition, for the so-called Executive Level, the room was utterly basic and barely standard, and the lounge food was minimal. These impressions were reinforced subsequently by a lack of response from the hotel management to our comments, and by a longer and more pleasant stay near Chicago, in a hotel of a competing chain. This competitor gave us far better value, and we may take a closer look at it for our further travels...

2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

I was there because my flight was cancelled! It is absolutely not comparable with other marriott hotels. First of all, room was very small. walls were too thin that I could hear every thing!! Sheets were damaged and had stains.

Carpet was damaged, bath tub was stainy and very small. Shower was awful and didn't pour water smoothly.

I was woken up at 4 a.m because some crazy people at back of my door were speaking and making noise..

It was a terrible experience for me. Food was overpriced.

About the bed: There was a pad under the sheets that has a red color and look unpleasant. Sheets were torn!!! Also, I had only two small pillows and no regular-size pillow. Bed was uncomfortable.

It was like a inn rather than hotel!

Room Tip: Not choose rooms farthest to the lobby because you had to walk over two minutes in a low-ceiling hal...

With airport hotels I've come to expect slightly lower standards, this hotel is no different, that's not to say there's anything major wrong with it, it's just more Marriott courtyard than normal Marriott.

The hotel is situated in a surprisingly pleasant lake setting. The rooms are small but comfortable, the staff were helpful. The food was overpriced (again as expected) but adequate. Wifi is free if you're a rewards member (free to sign up) and worked great for 95% of the time.

The airport has a free airport shuttle running every 15 minutes from the hotel pick up curb. The hotel is around 5 minutes drive from the airport.

Where do I start? First, the bad: It is freezing in my room. Can't get it above 65. Toilet leaks inside. flushes itself every 10 minutes. Shower has low pressure and even lower temperature. Concierge lounge: food is scarce and not great. I ask for early housekeeping and all week they come 4-5 pm Seems like a 10 minute walk from front door to my room and I had to park in the boonies, probably due to the park and fly folks.
Now the good: Location is great, and staff is friendly and professional. They are remodeling but quietly and not intrusive. Room is large, clean and fairly quiet. You can hear the planes but not loud at all. The TV is pretty far from the seating and bed, but is reasonably sized so that is not a problem, however the menus did not function so you can't get PPV or services.
The Ugly: I had an end of the hallway room. Wireless? forget about it. I can connect, sloooowly, and have to reconnect frequently.
Having said all that, I will probably be back. These kind of issues are usually taken care of quickly, and may not affect other areas of the hotel

Room Tip: Stay away from the "nicer" rooms at the end of the hall

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. We spent one night here because we flew in ahead of our group and got a great rate. The hotel property is well maintained and the service is great. Loved my room and had a good nights sleep - nice and quiet being that the hotel is located so close to the airport. Food and bar was very good!

I missed my connection and ended up staying at this hotel we were given vouchers for meals we ordered two burgers a toasted sandwich and i had chicken wings the food except for the chicken wings were fine the first one i ate was fine the second was tougher than jerky and i had to remove it and put it back on plate in the meantime my son ate one and said it was really spicy mine were not and after the second one that i could not even chew i told the waiter who just shrugged then asked for my bill .Now i expected the offending item from my bill to be removed but it was left on. I come from a place where good service gets a tip as i was not satisfied with the service and said so on bill and left no tip i was then approached by the manager who said they would have done my order again as it was late and i was going to bed i declined besides as i have worked in kitchens before i would never eat something out of a kitchen after a complaint thats just me I also told the restaurant manager that I would be eating elsewhere in the morning but what infuriated me was when i pointed this out to Marriott the manageress from Dulles claimed i was offered dessert and drinks which i refused that never happened i was also offered breakfast gratis but i had already told them i would not be eating there as i wanted hot food and i had more vouchers which were good in the airport and i did not like their response to my complaint the night before or the fact they seemed to be jeering me when i turned and went to my room i could hear them but not make out what they were saying .If a customer especially one who has just done a transatlantic flight with 3 children has a complaint it should be dealt with and offending items removed from bill no comments and no lies about what i was offered other than that nice place but on my return i missed my connection again i told them i did not want to stay in Marriott so they put me up in a Hilton which despite it being Xmas and understaffed were brilliant even took us to a shopping centre gratis to kill some time and gave me free use of their computer like i said Dulles nice place but the staff are woeful not all just enough to make it the worst stay in a hotel ever even the one in panama and i travel a lot through Europe and USA and i have never experienced such bad service i have no axe to grind as the airline paid for everything but bad service is bad service then staff telling lies to management makes it worse I have stayed in Marriott's before and often had Sunday lunch in the Greystones one never ever again

The real plus to this hotel is that fact that it is on the airport property. Being an airport "service" you can drive on the airport access road instead of the toll road. This makes it really easy to get to 28 and Herndon on via 657. You can also drive to Tysons without toll and without traffic at almost any time of day. The hotel has all the qualities of a full Marriott. The concierge lounge is nice and will meet the needs for most business travelers. The only downside is that the property is quite large (4 buildings) and long walks are possible. It took me about 5-10 minutes to walk from my room to the Fitness Center which was great. Overall a nice hotel if working in Herndon, Chantilly and the airport access road is a great plus.
