We didn't have a lot of time to research a hotel to stay at but chose this one based on location. This is the perfect location and allows you to walk to National Mall. Every staff member we had interaction with was extremely helpful and friendly. We ate dinner and breakfast in the bistro and the food was great. Nice... More

The Hotel was clean and the Staff was very nice and personable. The Location can't be beat. You walk two blocks and you're at Constitution Ave. There was a Subway next door and a Starbucks on the corner. Two blocks across from us was a CVS and a block up there were several places to eat. Not much traffic on... More

This hotel is a great location and convenient if you like to walk and close to the metro if you prefer that option. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

The location is superb, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The room is nice, clean and well-appointed, although the closet space is rather tight for a seven-day stay. The safes are in the bottoms of the closets, so you'll have to get down on your hands and knees to use them, and the free WiFi only gives 1.55... More

Great gym for the size of this. Lobby/bar area needs work. Understaffed. Out of soft drinks completely and only one person serving a large crowd at the bar. The new food setup at Courtyard is a failure. Room terribly overpriced. 350 for one night

We stayed here last summer on the way back from a trip to VA, and it couldn't have worked out better. The hotel is conveniently located, with a bike rental rack across the street, and walking distance to the National Mall. Nice staff, and a great setup off the lobby with many food options. It worked out so well, we... More

Disclaimer: I booked last minute, so that affected the room price. This is a very nice Courtyard, with a generally very friendly and excellent staff. The bed was a little hard for my tastes, but still comfortable enough for sleep. I did not park a car. It's about a 10 minute walk from Metro stations, though a 20-30 minute walk... More
