The hotel is nice and comfortable. The staff was friendly and ready to help. The room was ok. You have a highway directly at the hotel side and of course, according where your room is located, you could have some noise during the night (but also if you are near the ice-vending machine... ).
I've tried also the breakfast buffet. It was good, with enough choice.
One thing: remember that at mother's day by Marriott there are quite often special event. So if you are there at that day, you have to make your breakfast quite early, otherwise the buffet will be closed for a special event.
From the breakfast room you can directly see the inside pool, which is quite small.
The conference rooms are practical, well organized and with good acoustic.
The position of the hotel, even if not directly in the city centre of Washington, is very practical, since you can directly take the metro passing through a shopping center connected to the hotel, hence you don't have to go outside.
