The Marriott at Wardman Park is easily accessible via the red line Metro. We made the mistake of walking from the metro stop around the hotel to the front to enter - not realizing that we should have used the "service" or "bus" entrance to quickly enter the hotel. When you arrive at the top of the Metro escalators, turn right, cross the street and walk up the gradual hill of the service/bus driveway to enter the hotel.
We were upgraded to the highest floor, but our room did not appear to be an upgrade. We had a view of another wing of the hotel from our window. Compared to other Marriott hotels throughout the US, the room was below average. The bathroom was extremely small, the towels were cheap and thin, the shower was dark and there was very little water pressure. The bed was supposedly a king, but was the smallest king bed I have ever seen.There was no comforter, duvet, or blanket on the bed - just two layers of sheets. There were no extra blankets or pillows in the room. There was spot where it looked like their should be a mini-fridge, but it was simply big gaping hole.
We did not have maid service. On the second day, we requested two new sets of towels and were told they would be right up - this was at 4pm. At 7pm, we still had no towels. We called again and were told that someone would be right up. At 11pm, we still did not have towels and called yet again and were told that someone would be right up. Finally at midnight, housekeeping knocked on our door. As I approached the door, I heard the housekeeper swear and then knocked again.
Our "do not disturb" sign was taken on the second night as well.
We stayed on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night, so the concierge lounge was only open for a few hours Friday morning and then closed the rest of the time. Because of our platinum status, we were given coupons for breakfast at the main restaurant. We had the breakfast buffet each morning. There was a chef making omelets and waffles, as well as a selection of fruits, meats, hot items, bread, and cereal. I don't think that it would be worth the $30 they charge of the buffet, but for free, I can't complain.
The hotel seemed quite popular with at least two conferences/conventions going on while we stayed there.
