Do you imagine traveling to a place where you can sleep in the coziest bed, wake up to the best view, amazing food, and a great shopping area?

A few weeks ago we had the opportunity to stay at the Gaithersburg Marriott Washingtonian Center, located in rio Lakefront which is only 35 minutes away from D.C. with a great premier shopping and dining destination that has everything you need & more!

You have to believe me when I say that the Gaithersburg Marriott Washingtonian Center is a home away from home. Living in the middle of a pandemic, going through lockdowns, quarantines etc hasn't been easy so we were more than happy to be able to have a hotel experience again, where the staff made sure to do everything possible to make our stay unforgettable. And boy we had a blast!

First things first, we are foodies here so our first stop as soon as we checked in was The Bench, an American restaurant that includes an outdoor patio overlooking rio Lakefront.

I highly recommend you to try whatever is on their menu because our meals were delicious! They have different options, but if you like seafood you must try their appetizers because they are OUT OF THIS WORLD!

We also had amazing treats from this area that I never had before, but I have to say my favorite was the Old Bay Caramel Popcorn! At the beginning I wasn't sure how the mix of ingredients was going to be, but it delicious and I am definitely buying more in the future as one of my favorite snacks.

Our room was very nice and quiet, we decided to have a glass of wine while appreciating the great view we had from rio Lakefront at night ( very romantic!! ). We got everything we needed to feel comfortable and the bed felt like sleeping on the clouds. The next day, since we are early birds we got to enjoy the beautiful sunrise and the lakefront view from our window.

For breakfast, we got to eat at the Concierge Lounge on the 10th floor and it was delicious. As a Latina, I appreciated the options available to us so I was able to have a big breakfast just the way I like!

In my opinion, Gaithersburg Marriott Washingtonian Center has the best amenities!

Here are 7 reasons to stay there:

  • They have a great restaurant and food selection

  • Starbucks at the Lobby

  • A full equipped fitness center

  • Meeting spaces & Wedding venues

  • Convenience store

  • Charging station for electric cars ( I personally loveeee this )

  • A curated list of nearby things to do if you are new to the area

Now you know where to stay if you ever visit Maryland, or if you just want to have a staycation, go shopping, eat delicious, and feel like home! it is something you won't regret!
