as posted before I am a Platinum Lifetime member with Marriott (obvi very brand loyal). We checked into this hotel/convention center (keep in mind convention center) and I was actually very disappointed. Thank God I wasn't paying for this stay which was $300 per night. Didn't seem like they would be full as it was the day after Easter. I have had more staff personality staying at a Fairfield Inn than here. No smiles, no welcome, no thanks for the loyalty, no anything...oh we did have two complimentary bottles of water in the room. The bar area served our wine in plastic cups. Service was terrible throughout. Even my youngest said "dad, this doesn't seem like a Marriott"! Funny she would be so observant. She has stayed with me in numerous awesome Marriott properties.
Everyone seemed "busy" but not accommodating. The valet picked up my room call on their speaker phone and could have cared less about retrieval of my car. This property is located across the GW bridge from Old Town Alexandria,VA (a place I wish we had stayed) in a, currently being renovated, section of PG County, Maryland.
I would house a convention group there since they are familiar to being housed and treated like cattle but I would not bring my family back to this property again. Actually, I wouldn't even house a convention group here. Sorry for flip flopping
