I'm not a big traveler but have stayed in this location a bunch of times & other Marriott's in the DC area. Being a Marriott member I have always been greeted with a thank you for returning, etc. except for the other day. I was just checked in, no welcome & given a first floor room. Ok, I figured it would be all right. However, the room was located a couple feet from cars parked right in front & looking out on very, very busy RT 29 which is noisy. There were sliding glass doors with no patio - just a bunch of big rocks in front of it. I asked for a different room & was given one on the second floor. The room was clean, very quiet & the bedding is lovely. However the cover on the spring was a complete mess. The edging of it was all torn & hung down over the springs. It was ugly. I asked the maid for lotion - having forget to bring some. She didn't have any. I asked the front desk & never got any either. It is no nice to get small toiletries to use when traveling , but don't expect any at this hotel. There are some plastic bottles bolted to the shower which are to be used by any & all. Just shampoo, conditioner & body wash. I also had to ask for a little bar of soap for the bathroom sink. Poor service! Plastic bags were hung on the waste baskets & not inserted. Not my job to do this. Again - poor or indifferent service. I will think twice about hotels when in the area - which won't be long too.
