Washington Marriott Wardman Park also features new Marriott Hotels and Resorts technology, designed for guests who embrace the mobile lifestyle for work as well as leisure. Apps include:

- Mobile Check-In (www.marriott.com/marriott/mobile-apps.mi), that provides an enhanced arrival experience with check-in up to two hours before arrival and automatic notifications when a room is ready
Cvent, a leading cloud-based enterprise event management platform, based the list on activity on the Cvent Supplier Network, an online marketplace connecting corporate meeting and event planners with venues around the world. Cvent evaluated several thousand hotel properties that received business through the Cvent Supplier Network from September 2012 through August 2013. The properties were ranked based on various data points, such as major metropolitan area (MMA) market share, conversion rate, and the hotel’s unique Cvent profile visits, designed to provide the most accurate reflection of the top meeting hotels in the U.S.
