Conveniently located near National Mall, Metro few blocks away. Service was excellent. Rooms were very clean. Parking fee was fair with in and out privileges. Staff was helpful with questions. Cabs are out front if you need one they get you one. Have and will continue to recommend. Excellent location for first time visitors to DC.

dear turravel, I was concerned when I read your review. Unfortunately, there are times when a hotel will have to relocate someone. It is not something we plan, and when it does happen we make sure that not only is your hotel room paid for, but that your travel to the other hotel is as well. We do call all... More

Conveniently located near all attractions! 15 mins walk to the Lincoln Memorial and a short drive near all the main attractions and museums. Parking on the streets were easy to find near the hotel. Our bed was so comfortable. We loved the swimming pool onsite!!! We will definitely book this hotel again the next time we're in DC!

Stayed for five nights, mainly business. Good location for the main sites, (hot and humid) walking distance to Georgetown and the restaurants by the river. Friendly staff, good internet, pleasant location. Slight question mark on security - I had to step over someone asleep in the corridor outside my room one morning as I went out for an early walk....

Stayed here during labor day weekend. National Mall and White House are within 10 mins walk. What's more, there's a capital bikeshare station just in front of the hotel. Bid on priceline at a rate comparable to Crystal City, so as expected, the room is an accessible room with a huge bathroom, but the bedroom is still spacious. For the... More

Spent two nights here while dropping my daughter off at college (GW) and this was one of my best experiences with a Marriott property, ever!

Very good location. Request a crib on my reservation and when I got to the room the crib was not there. Request the crib again and nothing happened. Stayed there for 3 nights and our baby slept with us anyways. Room was small but comfortable. Biggest feature of this Hotel was the location.
