You learn by your mistakes, and I learned from my recent stay at the Washington Dulles Airport Marriott.
It was strictly a stay of convienence (overnight flight crew), but added this property to my "never again" list and not worth the convenience factor.
It seems that it is from the 50"s format of motels wherein, if you draw one of the short straws, you get to walk a 1/4 mile to your room...not fun after a 14 hr duty day!
The rooms are okay, nothing special, but for the most part, the employees are friendly and helpful except for the bartenders who were definitely not happy in their work!
The food was plain, and cokes were $6!
It seems that this property's only claim to fame is their newly renovated, opened-aired lobby, restaurant, lounge. It didn't make things right folks!
What was hard to believe though is that a hotel this large, and high priced has one printer available at their so called "business center", and it was not working. The front desk associate said it had been "broken" for three days, so this hotel was usless for my business needs.
Then on my second day before checkout, I came back to my room after lunch to brush my teeth, and my bathroom sink was half full of black, debris-filled water.Truely gross.
After I told the desk person this, he said " I guess we need to check that out."
There are other choices close by Dulles rather than go through that experience again.
