Dulles Marriott: Adding Insult to Injury with a Plastic Shower

February 7, 2013

After my ridiculous non-travel day trapped at Dulles courtesy of United, the Marriott across the street from the terminal was a welcome respite. My friend Drew has Elite status and helped to snag me a room once I finally gave up on getting to Detroit after an 11 hour wait. (Did I mention that United sucks? It does.)

Good news? Incredibly friendly staff. Bad news? Plastic showers and those 1985 hamster cage rooms. Oh well, the bed was comfortable.

Welcome to the machine.

Drew’s Elite status earned me choice of 500 points or a snack. After hearing my United story, the people at the front opted to give me both. Hopefully Drew got the points. I need them not.

Snack.  All wrapped up and ready for the grocery store.

Still no fan of Marriott. This hotel, though a welcome place to crash after a crappy day, is a two showerheads hotel. Only stay here if utterly screwed by your own airline.
