"Would definitely go back. Unusually pleasant and helpful staff."
Emilia mia from New York, NY US rated Washington Marriott Wardman Park 10 out of 10 on December 07, 2003
"I had an incident that seemed threatening to me when a caller asked to come into the room for an unlikely reason. I called security when I hung up and they responded swiftly, politely, and went the extra mile by sending several people to verify that I was actually OK and no one had entered our room. I was very pleased and reassured by their response. Please thank them again for me. Also the housekeepers were friendly and spoke English so that one could communicate with them. That was helpful. An Asian lady Concierge was very helpful with directions. Thanks, Sam Williams"
