I stayed at the NWM because I was going to a concert at the NorVa. I went with my boyfriend and we stayed overnight. Marriott offers packages, so I got the romance package, which includes free valet, breakfast and champagne and strawberries upon arrival. There were no problems with our stay (although, I do think the romance package was overrated). Both the room and bathroom were clean. The bed was comfortable. The hotel was within walking distance to the NorVa (and we opted to walk). The hotel itself was fine
The thing that made me want to write a review was my experience with some of the staff. We went to the bar for dinner after the concert and had Jake as our bartender. He was fabulous. He makes a great drink and he is very knowledgeable about alcoholic beverages. He was also friendly and attentive, which really helps. I also had great experience with Dyamin, who works in the dining room, and the other staff. I just happened to get braces the previous morning and my mouth was 'cut up and swollen' on the inside. She recognized that I was in pain and frequently came to check on me. She also made me a salt water mix to help take some of the sting away. In my opinion, she went above and beyond the call. This isn't to say that the other staff weren't all quite nice and professional, but that those two individuals stood out among the rest. I would definitely recommend the NWM, particularly to anyone who wanted to be close to the water, close to the NorVa, and/or close to good shopping.
