Cood Conference Hotel - Needs to Get With the TImes

Overall, experience was acceptable. It was very frustrating that they don't offer free wi-fi although they state you can get it in the lobby, they don't provide the necessary code to log-on and the service cuts you off frequently. Most other hotels I've visited in the past 3-5 years offer free wi-fi in the rooms and the lobby.

Ideal location for exploring the area!

We came with a long 'to-see -and-do' list and the convenient location and Metro access made it easy - even when it was pouring rain. The room was a comfort to return to after exhausting days of touring and sightseeing. We will be back!

Buy the Metro One-Day Pass. You can zip all over the city.

Luxury

Aside from a vast canyon of underground trails and another Marriott close by with a similar name which confused me, the accommodations and service were befitting a hotel at twice the price.

July 4th In Wash DC

Went to Nationals Game then National Mall and some downtown sites (e.g. Spy Museum). Hotel was good. Very easy access to Metro (from hotel) and real easy to get to DC areas. Room good; checked in with poor A/C and they fixed it within minutes. Staff friendly and helpful. Restaurants so so. Pay for WiFi and Parking Garage (null). Area is fine but a little walk or ride to restaurants, stores, etc. Lot of shops in Metro approaches which are the normal which one would expect.

Is 4 or 5 Blocks south to nearest Restaurants but safe area, and not too bad to walk unless raining or real hot.
