Great hotel in a good location
Oct 14, 2014 by: JCBurges from Boardman, OH
I chose this hotel last minute while visiting a loved one at Walter Reed Hospital. Check in was fast, efficient. The lobby was spacious and I was offered bottled water by the bell man. My room was spotless, bed comfortable, and quiet.
Score another hit for Marriott

My wife and I stayed at the Marriott North Bethesda Hotel & Conference Center for 4 nights and had an excellent stay. We arrived at the hotel around 4 pm for check-in and the lobby was awash in a sea of young people all checking in as a group. It was a conference of the National Association of Black Accountants – all the young men were dressed in dark suits and the young ladies in dark dresses – very professional, to say the least. We thought we were going to be in the check-in line for a long time but a hotel employee guided us to a separate check-in space for Elite Marriott Reward members. In a few minutes we were on our way to our room on the top floor – the Concierge Floor. Excellent room with the entire amenities standard in a Marriott Concierge room including complimentary bottled water and a mini-fridge. The beds were just perfect and the pillows were to my liking, also. The bathroom was spotlessly clean and the shower head provided lots of hot water that was easy to adjust in temperature. Plenty of fluffy bath towels, face cloths, and hand towels, too. The Concierge Lounge had very nice food in the evening from hot and tasty soup to salads to various types of appetizers. The breakfast in the Concierge lounge was excellent scrambled eggs, sausages, potatoes, oatmeal, fruit, berries, and delicious pastry including chocolate croissants. Parking was an extra cost but free on Saturday and Sunday so we only paid for two nights of parking. The location of the hotel is just off of Rockville Pike which is a heavily travelled road. Access to the hotel was easy and parking was fine. It has been 5 years since I moved from Silver Spring, MD, to Florida. The suburban Maryland traffic and the downtown Washington DC traffic is HEAVY and I do not miss it one bit. . All in all, an excellent stay and I highly recommend the Marriott North Bethesda Hotel and Conference Center.
A good experience
Oct 11, 2014 by: LonePool from London
I stayed here for 4 nights. The room was large and bright and everything was easy to find and worked. Breakfast was good, with omelettes cooked fresh for you at an egg bar. It was a very short walk to the train which takes you to the centre of Washington cheaply and fast. The only thing which held it back were the bar staff who were quite grumpy and closed the bar around us at 1am. They were quite pushy for a tip, which us Brit's don't tend to pay to bar staff that just pull pints and don't bring them to you, particularly when they are surly like these guys were. But no doubt they would have been quite charming if we'd paid them the 20% they seemed to expect. But don't let that stop you going to this hotel - everyone else was very friendly and helpful.
Fine; restaurant uninspiring; staff wonderful

Like most Marriott restaurants where I have stayed, the restaurant is fairly uninspiring; in this case the location was also uninspiring (near a couple of strip malls) but the room was fine, and the staff were very helpful. It was a surprise at a hotel this size to be greeted by name in the hallway several days after I'd arrived. There were problems with the conference wifi, but the hotel staff were very apologetic and took steps to address the problem.
Nice hotel in small city

Our group stayed at this hotel on 20SEP which is in the middle between Washington DC and Atlantic City. It is a very nice hotel in small city. Nothing much near hotel but I like this hotel due to its quite environment. Breakfast buffet is very nice. Wifi is free only in lobby.
