The bedrooms in Bethesda Marriott have been renovated, updated, and transformed with wall-to-wall carpeting removed for hard surface flooring, and "traditional closets" and dressers replaced with open closets with shelving. The desks that were previously in the rooms were replaced with small tables that are able to easily move around for use on the couch or in the bed. In the bathrooms, the tubs have been replaced with walk-in rain showers. The ballrooms and meeting rooms have also been streamlined with contemporary lighting fixtures and new chairs. While a lot has happened already, there is still a lot more to look forward to with additional renovations expected to complete by the end of this year. Within the next few months, the Bethesda Marriott will have a new lobby as well as a new fitness center. The Bethesda Marriott will also get a new restaurant with reclaimed barn wood, concrete flooring, and a focus on local food.
