Sure, the location's not glamorous, but I was pleasantly surprised at how nice this hotel was. I definitely plan on returning. Not your average Marriott.

We stayed here on a long, late June weekend and found this hotel to be a very good value with a location that was pretty easy to get to, in, and out of. The hotel is immaculate, the service was fast, friendly and efficient, and the room, a king suite with foldout bed, was fine for our small, young family. The Metro line in to DC seems a lot closer than both the Marriott website and Google suggested (don't use Google for the directions to the Grosvenor-Strathmore station - they weren't reliable), and provided a very easy, hassle-free trip into Washington for a trip to the Zoo and sightseeing. The Montgomery Mall is a very short drive away for any shopping, entertainment, and expecially, dining needs, even for very picky eaters (as small children can be). The indoor and outdoor pool options were also invaluable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. There is a charge for parking, which seems rare in a non-urban area, but given the fact that the hotel sits very near to an office park with other garages, it seems understandable, though it would seem like, perhaps, the hotel could either validate or waive fees for guests.

Hotel has lovely and spacious rooms. The hotel offers great weekend rates that include free breakfast for two and free wireless Internet. The parking garage is about $12/night, and is the only available parking.

Nice full breakfast buffet.

Be aware, however, that there is NO wireless Internet in the guest rooms. I stayed there in June 2011 with a rate that included "free wireless Internet". Only when I opened my iPad2 did I discover that the "free wireless Internet" is ONLY available in the lobby.

Nothing is within walking distance of the hotel, so be aware of that. Lots of great shopping very close by, but you definitely need a car.

We stayed in this hotel as well as the Bethesda Marriott and greatly preferred this hotel. The suite was larger than the normal rooms of Marriotts and the staff worked hard in every way to please the customer. We dined at the nearby Legal Foods and enjoyed the stay- including the breakfast.

If your planning a DC trip I would recommend this place for budget minded families. We look for budget "Suite" hotels whenever possible so the adults can get a comfy king bed while the kids bunk on the pull out couch. The Marriott Suites has a great setup in this regard and all for less than a basic motel room. I don't know if it was because of the holiday, but even with the $12 parking our rate was $85 a night. My boys love the pool and the nearby Dave & Busters. The restaurant was better than I expected; after a long day of driving we ate dinner there and with the exception of some language barriers with the server it was a decent dinner. The next morning we were trying to catch the shuttle so we rushed through breakfast...opting for the buffet and we made a big mistake, bowls a cereal and some eggs was $20 per person. A decent looking buffet, but targeted for business users which the hotel had a bunch of.

The shuttle was interesting, but be warned, it was full every time we took it to the metro stop and some families got turned away. We took it three mornings and showing up 15 minutes early was the only way to make sure you got a seat. Why they don't take reservations is beyond me. They ask you to call on your way back for 15 minute past the hour pick ups, but be sure you call in advance...our phone didn't work on the metro (being under ground and all). One afternoon we opted for a cab rather than waiting 45 minutes and the fare was $20 with tip...not too bad seeing you didn't have to pay for parking. I suggest you do some research on the metro pricing...our second mistake was getting smart trip cards for everyone when we could've gotten a one day pass for $9...we each spent more than double that each day.

Overall I give this place high praise...we would definitely go back.

Stayed at the Bethesda Marriott Suites two nights for a meeting. Cabbed in from DCA for $45 incl. tip. Nice hotel, nice suite. Restaurant was OK, service was fine. Internet is $12/day, but there are free computers in the lobby. No vacationers, so the room was quiet. The main drawback is the locale, which is distant from everything including the Metro. If you have a car, fine. Of not, there is little of interest within walking distance. 10 minutes walk West is a shopping mall with typical mall stores (Nordstrom, etc.) and a few restaurants including Legal Sea Food and California Pizza Kitchen. 12 minutes East is a strip mall with a Giant supermarket, wine shop, and fast food. Across the street is another strip mall with an Italian restaurant. These are the alternatives to the hotel restaurant, bar and alcove "shop," which since you are trapped there are, of course, overpriced.
