I liked this hotel. The front desk was friendly and seemed to be interested in us having a good stay.
The room was functional rather than fussy. It was clean and tidy, not as luxurious, maybe, as other Marriott's we have stayed at, but very spacious and we were very comfortable here.
We had access to the concierge lounge for breakfast, which was perfectly fine, though not spectacular. There were eggs, but no bacon or sausage, which struck me as funny.
We ordered room service one night and the food was really good, and reasonably priced.
We had a few little issues, but nothing major.My husband was slightly irritated at check-in when the bell-hop asked him to move his car half way through checking in. We were parked in the 15 minute parking in front of the hotel, and my husband had to return to the car to get his passport, when he was asked to move because a hotel bus full of airline staff was due to arrive. It was annoying, sort of insinuating that we were not as important. They may well be regular guests, but still. It was only an irritation, but you do tend to remember such things.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay here. The hotel had a relaxed vibe, and the rooms were comfortable and quiet. It was actually in the mall car park, which was very convenient for my teenage daughters, and the drive into DC was not too onerous, either. We would definitely stay here again.
