Suites are Sweet !!!
Aug 19, 2014 by: Cheryl S from
I was very pleasantly surprised at how big the suites were. We were getting together with classmates of my husbands and we all were booked on one floor. If they stayed up and partied and we went to be you could shut the bathroom door and the bedroom door and not here them at all. I also liked the fact the bathroom was closed off mostly from the bedroom. It takes me longer to get ready than my husband and I was able to take a shower with out disturbing him, but the make-up mirror and where i would blow dry my hair and things were connected with out a door and then he had to get up.. only bummer.!!! The pool area is very nice and kid friendly even though we did not have kids. Hours for the pool way more accommodating than most hotels that want to close the pool at 10:00 p.m. The car port very accommodating also , but parkon the third floor cause its connected the main lobby.

I cannot say enough about the staff at this hotel. From the time I drove up to the time I drove away, I received nothing bu A-1 service. I came to this hotel to teach at a conference. The concierge was most helpful in getting my luggage and all of my training boxes out of my car and to my classroom as well as my hotel room. The check-in staff was most accommodating in ensuring I had an upper level floor (I love being up high and looking out over the city). When I went to my room, the window was a bit disappointing; it was small and very dirty. I called and explained my dilemma and was offered another room. I found out later that the hotel is having some remodeling work done so all of the outside windows were a bit dirty. The food was delicious; even my late night snack of calamari and spinach dip was scrumptious. My only complaint was the unusual odor throughout the hotel - I assume it was because of the remodeling. I sprayed air freshener in my classroom and endured for the weekend. Another dislike I had was the refrigerator; it was old, dented and sitting on the floor; and no microwave. I loved the indoor outdoor pool and the small workout room! Overall, this is a great hotel.

Stayed at the Bethesda Marriott July 19 to July 23. I found all services performed with a smile but what I found to be even more welcome was the way the guest service staff went out of their way in order to answer any questions. The shuttle service was most accommodating and I thank them sincerely for the ability to park without any outrageous fee. I guess my only concern was the fact that there were only stairs available to access the pool. I have difficulty with stairs due to my arthritis and I'd thought I could walk to the pool deck on the main floor once I saw there was a door there to access the pool but unfortunately, there were stairs down to the pool just as there were stairs up to the pool on the "pool" access floor from the elevator.

Stayed the Bethesda Marriott for a couple of nites on a business trip with a group. We also rented a conference room for meetings over couple of days. Overall I like this hotel but it's a bit hard to rate as it's undergoing a fairly extensive renovation. Certainly the low rate we paid was very attractive and we were never felt inconvenienced by the renovation. The hotel has the standard Marriott decor. I was in a very nice room that was likely renovated recently. Very nice bathroom. Loved the under-counter nite lite. Very nice touch. I especially liked the the nicely designed desk area (see attached photo). The desk had 10 (yes, ten) available electrical outlets on top. Perfect for the business traveler with multiple devices. I hate having to get on my knees and move furniture to find enough outlets to charge my laptop, phone, tablet, etc. This is the best I've ever seen in a hotel!!!! There is a decent restaurant and bar/lounge just off of the lobby.
Very good stay!

I stayed here at the Bethesda Marriott for a week (July 13-19) during the National Young Leaders Conference. I have to say that I was very impressed. The beds and cots were very comfortable. The room is clean. It was just annoying that the movies were blocked because we were part of the group. I stayed on the 4th floor of the hotel. The Agio restaurant tastes fantastic, and I was so happy when I learned that you served Starbucks Coffee! The conference rooms (especially Potomac) was very cold, and we had to sit through the cold air for a long time. The store had a great selection of necessities and snacks for the night. The wifi is expensive but it was unbelievably fast, I'm amazed. The front desk staff during the day were not friendly and sometimes even rude. The night staff was very welcoming.Other than that, I enjoyed my stay, and will consider coming back with my family in the future! :)
