It was fascinating to learn about this being the now-oldest Marriott in existence, celebrating 60 years of continuous operation this year. The staff is excellent and given the age of the facility, it's in pretty good shape. From what I've read, the property will be undergoing substantial renovations over the next few years and will only be a shadow of its former self. This place is in a fantastic location. It seems anything we needed was a 10-15 minute drive in any direction, at most.
HVAC in the room was abysmal. Loud fan/air handler and very little cooling effectiveness. We finally made it to the desired temp in the mid 60s, which still felt awful with the remaining humidity. The plumbing is worn out. Makes a loud screeching sound when the shower is on. I'm assuming these issues will be addressed once the hotel is renovated in coming years.
Wish I was still there.
Everything was great. Nice pool and workout facilities. Room and amenities were nice. Nice and quiet.
We really wish they had free room wifi, there's lobby wifi but for room wifi you'd have to pay 12-17 dollars. Also the tiny Starbucks coffee downstairs wasn't up to the quality of a regular Starbucks.
Solid Value Close to DC
Professional and friendly staff Clean room and excellent housekeeping Comfortable bed and pillows Reasonable parking fees and covered parking available Bar and restaurant on site Ready access to DC via car or Metro
Room and bathroom on the small side Noise between rooms
Noise from traffic keep me from sleeping
Convenient location with quick access to D.C.; VA & MD. It's obviously an older hotel in need updating but it's none the less nice. Good amenities; room service menu and quality of food was adequate. Nice gym. Great views from the top floor. Didn't take advantage of concierge lounge but the staff made me aware and thanked me for platinum status.
The wing of the hotel And room I was in was the closest to the road and interstate; the windows were not sound proofed and the noise from the traffic (just normal road noise) keep waking me up all night (and I take sedatives to sleep). I've stayed before and the room wasn't on the interstate side and it was fine. Just make sure to get a good location away from traffic.
Great location for using metro for transportation. Was able to walk to many historical sights from hotel. Would stay there again.
Good choice for ADA Needs!
The staff was incredibly helpful. I worry about travelling alone because I am disabled. This is one of the two best hotels I have ever stayed in. The other one was another Marriott! My room was comfortable, the room service & restaurant were both good and the staff was courteous. Being disabled, I required extra assistance at times and also moved slower than most people due to leg braces. The staff was patient and understanding, that doesn't happen often in my experience!
The only shortcoming I saw at all was the bathroom in my room. It appeared to me that the housekeeper was taking shortcuts when cleaning it. Everything else was just fine.
On the night I have arrived (very tired, by the way), I was informed by a rather impatient receptionist that there is no room for me - despite the fact that my card was charged in advance (I presume that big hotel chains oversell). After some consideration, I was put in some hidden room on the first floor, where the view from the window was literally the insides of a booth attached to the building with construction materials in it. Trying to cope with this situation, I had a dinner at the hotel restaurant - just to get a food poisoning (the food was certainly not fresh). Next day I was moved to a slightly better room. Overall, the hotel is in a desperate need of renovation (except for the lobby which looks OK) and better management - one of the worst hotel stays I have ever had. The location is bad - there is nothing in the immediate vicinity, and the commute to Arlington or DC is not convenient.
I was visiting for the Marine Corps Marathon & this location made race day stress free since I could walk to the start without hassle of needing to use the metro or other transportation.
The air conditioning unit made a loud click each time it turned on which was annoying when sleeping.
Cancelled this reservation but was still charged
I am disappointed with kayak as I cancelled this reservation via my kayak app on 31 August but when I returned to the app on 6 September to make a rental car reservation learned it was still listed as active. I called your secondary hotel room provider "getaroom" who could not explain what happened only that they don't allow cancellations through kayak's site. I do t think this is fair and would appreciate being refunded the full cost of this reaervation $423.81. I appreciate your attention to this complaint.
Lobby and pool are nice, location is close to metro
Our bathroom was run down the finish on the tub was peeling off, little knowledge abt are restaurants and the concierge comes in at 11:30 so if you need lunch reservations you are on your own, they sent me to a closed restaurant.
The food at the breakfast Buffett was terrible. The eggs were runny and tasted like they were liquid eggs. The fruit tastes like it was packaged, not fresh. You could just tell it was all cheap food, nothing was fresh. The air conditioning in the hotel was either not working or not turned on. All of the common spaces were miserably hot. The fitness center was a joke. It was in a dark, dungeony basement. There were no fans to keep it cool. The equipment was cheap and the tvs on the treadmills didn't work.
