Looking for the amenities of a full service hotel with Concierge plus the convenience of being close to Washington DC, then Marriott's Inn & Conference Center at the University of Maryland campus in Adelphi is ideal. Near Greenbelt, MD, Marriott's Inn & Conference Center at this sprawling university campus is only 15 miles east of Washington DC near Rte 50 and I-495. Like the majority of full service Marriott brands, you earn 10 Marriott Rewards points per $US eligible revenue.
Marriott's facilities on the campus include 2 buildings with state-of-the-art technology to support large business conferences and events. In addition to Room Service, there are 3 venues to choose from, but overall dining is limited. The staff we encountered is very friendly and welcoming. Accomodations include standard, deluxe and very spacious 1 bedroom executive suites. Fast and free broadband (wired) in the rooms and free wifi in the lobby. On site parking is additional @ $8/night. Concierge is closed weekends, but Platinum Elite get complimentary Good Start BF vouchers upon request. At Your Service at this location is outstanding.
Concerned about H1N1 and other health threats posed by unsanitary in-room coffee makers, the Inn has a new single-cup coffee maker unseen at other Marriott brands. Am told that it is made by Pure Elevate, but a search turns up zero results. Trendy, this Marriott also has a beside alarm clock docking station for your iPod!
