The restaurant atmosphere was really nice. You could go to the bar to have drinks and food or you could sit at the round tables and over look the lobby area. The food was served in small proportions and the cost is high. The food is very tasty. The servers have their conversations and watch the guest eat. Once in... More

Ate here on a Sunday morning. Selected the buffet and had the usual fare, and then some extras. The fruit was very fresh and was great. Service very prompt and friendly.

The price was high but average for the DC area. I can say it was the best buffet I have had in years...excellent food and service.

Most hotel breakfasts are run-of-the-mill but not at this Marriott. Both the food itself and the menu are appealing. The tables are properly spaced so that you can talk without bothering others.

Food was good with very attentive service. Only downside was the restaurant was empty, pity it was not used by more guests. It was busier in the morning and again we enjoyed our breakfast

We have had the buffet two mornings in a row and enjoyed it both times! The fresh Belgium waffles and omelet bar is great. We enjoyed the fresh fruit and wide variety of food available. The coffee is not great, but they offer many other juice and milk options.

Six of us had a breakfast meeting here, and they put us in a great location with some privacy. We all ordered the breakfast buffet which was quite delicious and included an omelet bar and a waffle bar. Service was excellent.

Recently, I ate here twice. The food was very good! I ordered a salad with chicken on the first visit and the crab cake sandwich on the second visit. The servers were very nice and almost apologetic for the amount of time we had to wait to get our food. I think they might need more help in the kitchen.
