Very helpful and professional personnel, quiet room and although close to airport, no outside and even air conditioner noise. Clean and pleasant room, well equipped, provided comfort and a peaceful good night rest.

Stayed here one night due to its proximity to Dulles. It was the most uncomfortable night I've spent in an airport hotel.

Unlike other airport hotels where I've stayed, this one had inadequate soundproofing. Not only was there loud jet noise, there was actual vibration. Both made sleep difficult.

The hotel provided tiny pillows (smaller than a standard pillow but larger than a throw pillow). The pillows provided insufficient head/neck support and added to the difficulty of getting some much-needed rest after a long day of travel.

The phone in our room rang multiple times between 2 and 5 am, making sound sleep impossible. In fairness, I'm not sure if this was due to a system malfunction or misdials, but it made a miserable night more so. We finally unplugged the phone to silence it.

The restaurant was closed when we arrived 10:00 pm, famished (despite being located at an international airport, I guess Marriott assumes all arriving travelers are on DC time). The only on-site dining option was the bar area, which was incredibly loud due to the blaring of multiple TVs. The food quality was poor.

Bottom line: if I again found myself needing overnight accommodation near Dulles, I'd look elsewhere.

For a Marriott property, this hotel was OK, but nothing great. My family always chooses Marriott hotels because they keep to a high standard of clean rooms, good food, and great service. The location of this hotel made it easy to find, and it was very close to the airport. That really helped us in getting to the airport for our 6:00 a.m. flight the next morning. Our only real complaint was about the double beds in the rooms; not good when you have a family with three kids, and the length of time it took the hotel to get the requested rollaway bed to us (almost 2 hours). We had requested the rollaway well in advance of our stay. The hotel could use a décor update. Otherwise, this is a really convenient place to stay if you want to be very close to the airport.

Room Tip: Don't get a room near the lounge area if you want to get good sleep. Traffic in and out all nig...

We stayed at the Washington Dulles Airport Marriott on Tuesday, August 6 so we could leave early the next morning. The only complaint we had was that we stayed in what we think was room 110 which was very close to the workout room and the Human Resources office where people were slamming doors and talking loudly much of the night and early morning. We thought they were probably reporting for work and greeting each other. So, we will ask to be away from that area next time. But, the shuttle was efficient and consistently runs from the hotel to the airport, with very polite drivers. The room was clean and the total for that plus parking for twelve days was a little over 200 dollars, which we felt was fair. We will stay again.

Room Tip: Ask to stay away from the door to the pool and Human Resources if you like quiet when trying to slee...

Stayed for one night prior to flight home. Hotel is really well located and easy to find. The reception staff were very helpful and the room was really nice and large with all the facilities. It was very clean and well maintained. It was a fair walk at the other end of the square block. The breakfast next morning was nice and cost effective to have the continental breakfast rather than seperate items. Serving staff were very good and couldn't do enough to help. The grounds of the hotel are nice and the the pool areas looked very good. My only complaint is that Wi-Fi should be free across the hotel not just in the lobby area - even cheap hotels can manage that,

I stayed there for nine nights (4-13 August 2013) We stayed at room 1317 and 1319 (connecting) in building three. The location of the rooms is quite nice, overlooking the lake and only 15 yards from where we parked our vehicles. There is a jogging track and tennis court in the back as well. The breakfast is standard Marriott American breakfast. There are two pools, one indoor and one outdoor, they were fun enough for the kids to pass sometimes. The shuttle to IAD is quite convenient, so we can get some coffee and food from the airport. All in all, the hotel is quite adequate, even for a long stay.

Room Tip: Building three is the best.

This property is right out of the Marriott playbook: clean, appropriately furnished rooms, busy lobby, and fine service. Having read some prior reviews, I can say that all seem correct, yet they remain a matter of perception...the property IS a bit dated, but I don't think overly so. On the plus side were the immediate proximity to Dulles Airport, free parking (HUGE plus in DC/Northern Virginia), and friendly, expedient service. On the negative side, it's easy to get lost in the maze of hallways; seriously, I am a seasoned traveller with 100+ nights per year in hotels, and I got lost three times in the hallways. A tip: definitely request a room near one of the few elevators, or be prepared to walk hundreds of yards of hallway ( no exaggeration). Also, was disappointed as a Marriott Elite member not to receive the King bed I requested, and was guaranteed.
