The view from our room

We stayed at the Marriott Marquis Washington DC. When researching hotels, we continously read that hotels in the “heart” of downtown were small and worn down. When we came across the Marriott Marquis, it got glowing reviews for being modern, cleanliness, and room size. Now the rooms weren't gigantic but I've stayed in an older, smaller hotel in NYC before, so I knew what the reviews of the other hotels were probably referring to. I have noticed that the pricing fluctuates on this hotel. We paid less than $120 a night (before taxes) so it felt like a steal in comparison to the other hotels available. I was actually getting cold feet about booking this hotel due to the cost of the room...would it be bad?

Not at all! This room is what I refer to as a standard hotel room – 2 double beds a chair by the window for sitting, a desk, dresser, closet, and bathroom (single sink). The hotel room proved to have plenty of space and was clean.

The hotel is located next to the convention center which you can access through an underground passage. There are two CVS stores in walking distance which was nice to pick up some waters and snacks for the room (& when our son came down with strep, it was easy to get to the Minute Clinic in CVS), it's about a 10 minute walk to Chinatown, two blocks to the Metro station, and has a sports bar and Starbucks in the lobby area. Uber was able to easily access the hotel for us as well. The room had a fridge, safe, and tea/coffee machine.

It was a great stay and especially for the price. We would recommend this hotel to others. We were there for the week of Thanksgiving and liked the holiday decorations that were going up during our stay, including this gingerbread house.
