This is a typical Marriott--you can read that as good or bad. The staff, room and furnishings are what you expect. The timing of my 9 day stay was not the best. I stayed the week after Easter Sunday with the hotel hosting a technology conference, a national grants conference, the National History Bee and Geography Challenge, Easter Sunday, hundreds of high school students, and an Indian wedding--"the Perfect Storm". The hotel was noisy and with only 2 of the 4 elevators not working in my room's tower, there was a 8-10 minute wait for the elevator. That got annoying really fast. Despite all of the hustle and bustle, the housekeeping crew did an amazing job cleaning my room and keeping the hotel clean. The concierge was fabulous and so were the shuttle drivers. Room service was prompt and the food was good. The beds were comfy, the sheets were soft and the towels were fluffy. The internet in the room worked without any glitches,
Would I stay here again? Yes. This was my first trip to the DC area and I found the location very convenient.
