“wonderful location & stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

After looking up a gazillion places, I settled with this Marriott. I arrived in DC from Boston at 8, and I was checked into my hotel right away. I usually always ask for early check in, and with no problem it was given. I took the metro everywhere as it was literary outside the door. As it was my first time in DC I wanted to explore the city by foot (also took a taxi here & there) my room was spacious, comfortable, clean and overall kept together. I mainly booked this location for the pool to go for a swim here and there, but I was so buy didn't get a chance to enjoy it until I checked out the pool. I was disappointed as it needs to be updated, and what seems to be years of dirt on the ground.. besides that all in all I was happy!

Room Tip: if you are staying here and planning on visiting the city by metro, buy a $14 day pass!

This is your standard Marriott property, which is to say it's clean and comfortable. The staff was super friendly. What makes this hotel stand out is the convenience to the Metro, which is 50 feet down the block from the front entrance. That is, if you need to use it; the hotel is close to many restaurants and night life.

Service adequate, not exactly warm, and room service food quality not as good as other area hotels for similar or even lower price. But newish facilities and great location keep this on the top 5 list for central DC hotels.

I came for a big softball tournament this past August. The rooms are really nice, staff was courteous and centrally located, so walking to everything was a breeze. Needless to say, the metro was just outside the front door.

Beautifully decorated, spacious room, and to top it all off, easy access to everything. Walking distance to bars, restaurants, museums, bike stations, etc.They also have a Starbucks downstairs which have friendly baristas. The room has a great view also.

Their employees were sweet and always greeted us every time we were coming back or leaving they always were friendly.

The only negative is that when expecting really large sports groups, plan for extra valet to minimize congestion & accidents.

As a hotel where you have a good night's sleep and wake up refreshed then it is a good place to stay. It also has a fantastic gym with steam room: lots of machines and weights with free and clean headphones. It is also perfectly located next to Metro Center metro station. However I'm not sure who the hotel is aimed at. There is only free wifi in the lobby which is a pain if you want to work in your room (unless of course you want to pay for it), There are not many facilities in the room like a fridge or a chair/sofa. The concierge was very friendly and helpful. The same could not be said for the porter in the lobby who we asked to look after our bags whilst we did some shopping (after we had checked out): he was grumpy, slow and then gave a nasty look when we didn't tip him - I always thought gratuities are discretionary and for good service and not necessarily a given.

Very attentive staff and a fantastic location close to everything. Metro station is literally right outside the front door. Great rooms and large fitness center. Only complaint is the price for parking ($50 for overnight) but I suppose that's par for the course in downtown DC.
