Beware of the manager that has no knowledge of the difference between a service animal and an emotional support animal. This man kept insisting that I needed to show him a ADA "card" for my little dog, that is an emotional support dog, NOT a service animal (and was actually quite rude about it) I have all of the required...

This was a great place to stay. We went on line, and since we could not find our Marriott rewards number, called Marriott and got an even better deal, one on one. We had a funeral in Baltimore, and chose to stay on the fringe where we hoped for a quiet spot that turned out to be situated in lovely... More

Stayed here for two nights with young children. One bedroom suite was decent price for booking well in advance. Conveniently located close to BWI, and not a far drive from downtown Baltimore. Room was nice sized and having a stocked kitchen and fridge as well as 2 tvs was nice. The free breakfast was nicer than what these hotels usually... More

Nice rooms and pleasant staff, but ask for a room away from the adjacent highway as the traffic noise is loud and never seemed to stop. The entrance (lobby area/check-in) is not easily identifiable from the road and it is easy to drive past. Some of the internal signage showing which rooms are down each of the hallways could be...

We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite and were very pleased. The room was spacious, the bed was very comfortable, the full kitchen was great. They have a wonderful breakfast buffet. Everything was fresh and had quite a variety of items. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. We will definitely stay here again and would recommend to our... More

Spent about 8 days here on a business trip - working nights whilst I did so. They did a great job making up the room when I wasn't sleeping and took care to be quiet when I was. Very friendly and helpful staff. Food was the usual Residence Inn food for breakfast, but my hours prevented me from partaking this... More

We stayed in a two bedroom suite with relatives and couldn't have been more pleased. The property is very clean. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was very well equipped though we really only used the fridge and microwave for popcorn. The staff at the desk were friendly and efficient. The breakfast staff kept everything refilled and neat. Right... More

What a great property! The personnel were warm, friendly and very helpful. This hotel has immaculate grounds, rooms, lobby! The breakfast was great, accomodations wonderful. I would reccommend this hotel to anyone. There are also many excellent restaurants very nearby. I enjoyed our eight day stay tremendously. Two thumbs up! PS And this is coming from a travel agent.

The staff was very attentive and quickly responded to requests. The facility was clean, the pool was a delight. The location was convenient and easy to get to. The breakfast was well above average for this type of hotel, but typical for a Marriott .
