Washington Dulles Airport Marriott

Washington DC, USA

The hotel

A great choice for business and leisure travellers alike, this world-class Marriott hotel is only half a mile from airport terminals, giving you peace of mind and plenty of time in-between flights to enjoy a whole range of exciting activities and amenities. In the summer, there’s a gorgeous outdoor pool in the courtyard and 2 tiki bars serving delicious tropical drinks as you soak up the sun’s rays. There’s also an indoor lap pool for those keen to keep fit and a splash pool for the little ones to have some fun in. Other activities include tennis, basketball and sand volleyball, so there’s certainly plenty to keep you busy! The Oakleaf Restaurant is a great place to dine serving an impressive buffet at breakfast plus a la carte specials for lunch and dinner. There’s also the Lobby Lounge, a popular meeting place with lighter fare on the menu and a very relaxed atmosphere. If you want to explore further afield, the Steven F Udvar-Hazy Centre is 1 mile away. The companion facility to the Air and Space Museum on the National Mall, highlights include the Space Shuttle Enterprise and the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, currently the fastest jet in the world!

My cursor hovered over the rating bubbles. Had it not been linked to the Marriott chain I would have scored it one score higher, but the expectations I had, given its association, left me disappointed. Covid has created an opportunity for the industry to prove their value in customer care, not an excuse for failing. Compared with the many hotels I have stayed in recently in the UK, Europe and South Africa this hotel fails on so many levels. I did not feel at ease, nothing in the room suggested any extra care had been taken to prepare the room. Apart from the little pack of antiseptic pack of 5 wipes beside the bed and the tv remote being in a plastic bag. No at reception or in room information was provided as to the measures the hotel had undertaken in its covid-19 protocol to prepare the room for a safe stay. Don't Marriott have a corporate covid policy in place? Very limited menu, no room service, collect from reception desk when its ready. That said the food was hot and tasty. The room was noisy could hear the people next door cursing when they spilt something and using the washroom. No safe in the room. The other blessing is that given the few flights the aircraft noise was infrequent but very clear. Reception staff were charming and the brightest thing I came across in the hotel did their best especially given the dismal, poorly lit lobby they had to look out on from their protective shield. Breakfast...glad I ate something last night. All in all rather depressing for all concerned I think, especially in these times. Read less

Sep 25, 2020 AlainDeWitt Kabul, Afghanistan

I returned from Afghanistan at 0330 on leave and had a seven hour layover at Dulles. I was hoping to get a room for 3-4 hours to grab a shower and change clothes. I called the hotel. The rate on the app was $104. The rate for a day room - a room that at 0400 they already hadn't sold - was $79. This is how you treat a Lifetime Platinum member… Read more

This is how you treat a Lifetime Platinum member with over 1000 nights in your properties? I'm sure it will be fine. We still don't have a COVID-19 vaccine, but I'm sure hotels will be just fine.

Aug 5, 2020 Quiddity42 Lusaka, Zambia

The shuttle was fast, front staff was very nice. I just don't understand why double beds even exist anymore. I was also a little surprised at no coffee in the rooms. I did see in other reviews that it was noisy, we didn't experience that, but we're also here in COVID world so I don't think there were many people staying at the hotel.

Rooms are barely luxurious. No room service, possibly in cover scenario. Insufficient accessories. Very close to airport and therefore good to spend time on the way to and from a flight. Limited variety of available food.

Many thanks to the gracious & accommodating staff at the front desk, who made my and my friend's brief stay feel both personal and smooth during the turbulence of a pandemic. Also, many thanks to the kind security officer who helped us find a ramp to transport our suitcases (and thereby avoid hoisting them up a short staircase).
