This new arrival by the Marriott chain into the National Harbor area is a good solid deal. It is a bit different from our expectations and is far more European than most hotels in our area. That is not a bad thing, only setting expectations. Very minimalistic rooms with amazingly little storage and very strange closet configuration. Still, it was comfortable and affordable, which is what a hotel room needs to be.
We were told that Marriott opened this AC just about a month ago (formerly the Aloft). I found it operated smoothly for the most part. My only criticism other than the lack of storage space in the rooms, is the bar. It was barely stocked except for making its own concoctions. Staff at the bar was hit or miss. The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly.
The breakfast for 15.00 may be the best buy in the area. Very fresh and well stocked although the selection was limited by American standards. No soggy scrambled eggs but lots of cold meats, cheese, quiche and beautiful fresh fruits and pastries. Personally, that is a big plus in my mind.
It is different than a local Holiday Inn, or even the Residence Inn down the street, but it was fun and a fair value. I found it to be a better value than the Marriott Gaylord and likely more enjoyable. One note, they participate in Marriott rewards, but they do not offer special amenities for Platinum members. Enjoy it for what it is and you will like it.
