"Wonderfully revamped bathroom!"
6 reasons to love the redecorated bathroom: 1. It is light and bright enough to put on your makeup. 2. The sink is at a level where 5'2" people don't have to stand on their toes to lean over the sink. 3. There is counter space for all the toiletries (it looks like a pedestal sink but it's not, thank heavens!). 4. There is a shelf to store toiletries between uses. 5. The shower head. 6. The auxiliary/handheld shower head for days you don't want to get your hair wet. 2 negatives which do not at all outweigh the positives 1. It's a one person at a time bathroom. 2. It is so bright that the light shining through the full length frosted glass in the door can disturb the person sleeping. Tip to management: install a nightlight on the wall that backs up to the room. If on opposite wall, it will shine through. Thanks for a marvelous re-do! Besides all this, hotel is in a great location.
"Good, clean stay "
We had a great stay at the Marriott. Our room was beautiful, large and clean. The hotel was fairly quiet and located in a good area. Our cab rides were never more than 10 min from many sites, restaurants and night clubs. We had a minor set back with the parking situation; however, management was very apologetic. There also doesn't seem to be bell hops available (seems like there isn't much staff around)... but don't let that turn you away from staying here. The hotel is very updated and clean.
"Long weekend in DC"
Just came back from a three night stay at this hotel. The hotel is lovely, you can tell it's just been redone. The M Lounge is one of the nicest we've seen. Most concierge lounges in cities don't serve breakfast on weekends but this one does which was appreciated. The most impressive thing though, is the staff at this hotel. From the moment we arrived until checkout, each and every staff member was fantastic. They should be commended!
"Nice hotel but NOT in Georgetown!"
If you think you will be in Georgetown, think again. This hotel is firmly in the Westend and closer to Dupont Circle than Georgetown. It could just as easily have been called "Marriott Dupont Circle" but the corporate moguls thought they would get a bigger draw by suggesting it is in quaint and historic Georgetown. It is not! It will take you 20 minutes or longer to by foot to reach the easternmost tip of Georgetown, and another 20 minutes at least to reach GU. GWI is not too far, however. Keep in mind this area can be a real traffic nightmare if you are driving or cabbing in rush hour (which can be most of the day in downtown DC).
"Great weekend getaway"
Decide to spend a Saturday Saturday and Sunday in DC. Got a great bargain rate at this Marriott which been reportedly renovating. Check in was without delay the rooms were clean although we had a Cityview which didn't show much. Only couple of very small negatives. We like the divided sink and shower however they could've added additional table in the shower area ready to place your clothing. Also coming back after all day sightseeing mid afternoon the room still not been cleaned. Initially there was only two packets left for coffee one was regular one was decaf which neither my wife or I like. the decaf wad small thing we left a note in the next day and were left two packets of regular coffee. Not sure what would happen if you wanted two cups of coffee per person. The location was excellent. Very short walk into Georgetown and not terribly bad walk to the White House and Washington Monument. One small note we took a regular taxi into the capital Grille for dinner an it was $14 we took Uber back and was less than seven dollars. From the train station into our hotel it was approximately $14 again and we took Uber from the hotel back to the train station was less than eight dollars. We will be definitely taking Uber more than local taxes. We would definitely stay there again.
