Yep. Typical Marriott comfortable bed! We walked to Metro stop...about 10 minutes nearby. Pretty safe area. Reasonable area costwise for DC suburb. Would consider staying again.

Yes, the beds are comfortable Yes, the river and metro are within easy walking distance. The river maybe a little bit further than you really want to walk, but the metro or a bus is available

"I was not a guest- I walked down from the Westin, after being told that their location has a bar as well."
"The 1 bedroom suite 507 perfect room, nice view, very quiet and peaceful"
"Avoid rooms facing busy rail lines if that is a concern."
"stay anywhere else."
"If you want quiet, ask for a room on the Metro train side -- the hotel has terrific sound-proofing on that side."
