Bring Ear Plugs!

If you're a light sleeper, bring your ear plugs. The AC sounds like you're trying to sleep on an airplane. It may be okay for someone who sleeps like a rock but others will have a challenge.

The things I enjoyed most of all about the hotel ... the attached parking garage and great location ... lots of good "to-do stuff" within a safe, walking distance.

Home base for visiting grandchildren.

This Marriott has had its ups and downs, but is now on the up side. We have tried other hotels in the area, but have returned here. Nice, clean rooms with a good mattress and pillows and an extremely pleasant and helpful staff. There is no longer free coffee in the lobby. There is now a Starbucks that serves its usual good , but absurdly expensive coffee.

Great location

We come here several times a year when we visit family. It is always clean and comfortable. Parking is free on weekends. A bonus is the access to nearby shops and restaurants. Staff is helpful and friendly.

Nice Place in Downtown Silver Spring

We stayed here for three nights while visiting family. It worked out fine and the rates were quite reasonable for the weekend, which included a Thursday night. Room was fine and really no problems.

Ideally designed accommodations

The Layout from both entrances to parking and elevators, the location of reception desk, convenience drinks, accessories and even microwave; the location of the ice machines near/in view of the elevator; the beautiful 'patio' where smoking is allowed; the hours of the gym and pool; the layout and furniture of the rooms: In sum I find this the most thoughtfully designed and furnished modest hotel I can remember in 60 years, and for that reason a more welcome experience than many of much higher rates, pretensions to luxury,and other amenities here absent.

The Thai restaurant in the mall across the street upstairs, and the Austin Grill downstairs, and two doors to its left (past the fountain) one with a blue façade (name forgotten); all serene even when busy and all with surprisingly pleasing menus at reasonable prices. All virtually 'across the street'.

comfortable place to crash; not a dream getaway

This place was a normal, clean, business class hotel. Good for sleeping, getting ready in the morning for going out, and working on the computer in your room if you need to. Otherwise, it has strange entrances that are not totally pedestrian friendly and does not have any particular wow factor. The swimming pool is just a two lane lap pool, and there is no jacuzzi/hot tub. You share the pool and gym with locals who have memberships to it as a sports club. But the hotel is clean and reliable, which is the most important thing when you're on the go.

Very good stay

The hotel is better than we expected. The staff is very friendly and the location is very good. You have access to transportation, shopping and a lot of restaurants near by. We stay there again next time.

Fine place - bit pricey

No problems - convenient location - parking is easy - although it costs you a few bucks. No free breakfast - so sad. But the whole foods market across the street has a really wonderful selection of stuff! Wifie worked this time flawlessly.

The Whole Foods Market across the street has bakery and soup and buffet food that is world class.
