You are paying for the Metro Access

This is very bare bones and small. The bed was very firm, but bedspread was way too thin. On the plus side, the Staff is very nice. I thought the cleanliness was fine, until I opened the bed to find a long black hair on the pillow! Ew. I would probably stay at the nearby Hilton Garden Inn in the future. Comparable metro access and price, but next to the grocery store and much larger, nicer rooms.

Work Trip

The first room was facing the train station and there was no blind on the window so I could be seen by all passersby. I requested a change in room.

Great Hotel, Great Location!

Affordable in a great location! There was a lot that was a walkable distance from the hotel and there was a lot that was just a short taxi ride away.

Easy Access to Metro and Union Station

This is a wonderful hotel. It was clean, hotel staff was wonderful and best of all it was steps away from the metro and only one stop from Union Station. It is also very affordable.

Not good at all

I have stayed at many Marriott hotels and I have to say this was by far the worst stay ever. First, they advertise that the room is soundproof, since the Metro is right outside the window of your room (if you get a room on the wrong side of the hallway). I got to my room and found that even though I was on the 5th floor and had paid close to $400 for the night I would be forced to listen to the train all night. I could even hear the voice announcing the arriving trains! These rooms are NOT sound proof and shame on you Marriott for advertising them as such. Next, was the hotel restaurant called the Bistro. I ordered a salad and a roast beef sandwich. The salad was fine but the sandwich had been baked for some reason and the bread was so hard that I literally could not bite into it! The roast beef was just as terrible. I was not able to eat any of it. It was old and dry and had changed colors on the edges that had been exposed to the air for god knows how long. There was also what use to be cheddar cheese that was now nothing more than a semi clear rock hard film that now covered the rock hard bread. Seriously I have gotten better food at local mom and pop diners. As others have said as well you really don't want to leave the hotel after dark on foot. The staff was pleasant and valet was quick and polite as well. Do yourself a favor and book somewhere else, DC has no shortage of hotels so shop around.
