“Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2010

I'd had the pleasure of coming here pretty over the last decade for business and pleasure. I am always happy with the stay. My most recent stay was last month and as usual, the staff are accommodating and really go out of there way to make sure it is a stress-free stay. I love their in-hotel restaurant and have had the pleasure of attending banquets in their reception halls. The food is delicious and the service is always great. The location is also great. It is close to the Rio Entertainment Complex, so its a quick walk to movies, shopping and restaurants. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

Stayed October 2010, traveled on business

I selected this hotel for my wedding guests to stay in. Many of our family members and friends complimented us on our choice of hotels; being right off of I-270, it was easy to access from both the North and South. There is a lot within walking distance of the hotel, so guests didn't feel restricted to the hotel only. Our room was great. It was clean and very modern. The bed was luxurious! The only negative aspect I can point out was that there was a snafu with the block of rooms we reserved. Our room block was locked out prior to the deadline for reserving a room with the discounted rate. Otherwise it was perfect for our purposes. I'm not sure if I would recommend staying there if you're looking for a romantic retreat, but staying with family or for a quick weekend visit to DC (the Metro was very close to the hotel) would be fine.

Stayed at this property during a business trip for a week, the staff was very welcoming and warm, the hotel rooms were adequate in size and had all required amenities- most importantly a very comfortable bed ! . The hotel location is fantastic with a good lake view from some of the rooms; the hotel is conveniently located close to the shopping and business areas. The room service was on time however the morning breakfast was the best with good variety and a large spread. Overall a value for money deal if you are looking for a convenient business location close to Gaithersburg with proximity to DC then is the hotel!

The Marriott Washingtonian was very clean and well situated near shopping, restaurants and the expressway. It served as a perfect location from which we could embark upon our weekend.

The location at the Washingtonian Riverfront is beautiful and near shops and restaurants. The staff is right there for you. Wonderful customer care! Rooms are okay- nothing spectacular but the view of the water is wonderful .
The beds were not as comfy as I had expected. The hotel has a small fitness center with easy access to a full service gym nearby. A satellite Starbucks is on sit but needs to be open at 6am 7 days a week.

Unmemorable just about sums it. "Unmemorable" is not necessarily bad. It just means the hotel is bland and average for the Marriott full-service hotel chain.

First, the appearance. Despite the recent renovation, it's difficult to conceal the fact that this is a 1980s vintage Marriott. Evidence of a half-baked renovation is everywhere: peeling wallpaper, detached door trims, worn-out doors. The rooms are clean but with a faint smell of musty wood - not quite mildew, but not quite new hotel smell either.

The rooms are of average size for the Marriott chain. Beds are the usual 7" foam Jamison beds without featherbed tops. Comfortable as usual. The room decor looks modern thanks to the recent renovation. 32" LCD TVs with HD programming. Bathrooms are standard Marriott bathrooms - marginally wide for an average size person and definitely not designed for two simultaneous occupants. The rooms are quiet (as long as they face the lake and not the highway). The AC is quiet and efficient. Points deducted for no in-room safe. The hotel charges $12.95/night for Internet access just like most other Marriotts (and most other full service hotels). Subscription to a national WiFi service (like Boingo or AT&T) allows you to access the internet for free. Parking is free - and worry-free as long as you don't leave any valuables in plain sight.

The staff is pleasant and knowledgeable by DC standards (you probably know what I mean if you've stayed in DC more than once). The fitness center is clean, fresh-smelling, and equipped with fairly new treadmills and stationary bikes. The restaurant is unmemorable just like the hotel. The food is decent but not visually appealing; the wine is overpriced; the service is unremarkable. The Concierge Lounge is also forgettable - mediocre food offerings and outrageous prices for self-service wine ($8/glass). What might they be thinking? Note to self: no smoked salmon for breakfast!

The best thing about the hotel is its proximity to the Washingtonian Center. There are several restaurants immediately across the hotel - including Mexican (rather, East-Mex), Thai, Indian, and even Malaysian. There are several shops within walking distance, including a Target. The artificial lake next to the hotel is a pleasant sight with large flocks of geese, swans, and ducks frequenting it.

To sum it up - if you have business in the Gaithersburg area, go for it. You may not remember it a week later, but it's better for a hotel to be unmemorable than to be remembered for the wrong reasons.

I reviewed this hotel earlier in the year and we returned there recently. I felt I should post another review as we had a better experience this time around. The food was improved (we had a very good room service breakfast) the staff were really friendly and helpful and I felt it represented really good value for money.

I still feel the rooms are not that well equipped (no safe) but they are clean, quiet and very comfortable. The renovations are complete and so the atmosphere of the place was much nicer and the bar was quite lively in the evenings.

There is no particular wow factor here but it was a much better experience than last time. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a decent place to stay in this area at a reasonable price.
