We really enjoyed our trip to DC, and this hotel was well worth the money. We were within walking distance of the metro and the mall. The hotel was very clean and quiet. We ate breakfast in the bistro multiple times, and the food was always well prepared. Having the Subway in the building was also nice on the days... More

We booked Courtyard by Marriott Foggy Bottom for a two night stay while moving our student into George Washington University Summer Housing. It's on the same block as Mitchell Hall, so super convenient. We also came into DC on Hwy 66 and this was very easy to find - which is a big plus for me! The hotel was very... More

This is a pretty typical Courtyard by Marriott hotel. Everything was clean and functional. The staff was quite friendly and helpful. We spend most of our time at The Vietnam Wall and the other memorials at that end of the Mall--this hotel is a perfect location for that end of town.

Stayed here over Memorial weekend with my wife and daughter. Our son was with his school Marching Band in town for the Memorial Day Parade. They let us check in early on Friday since they already had rooms ready which saved us multiple trips to the parking deck. The front desk was very helpful getting the room worked out, showing...

Stayed at the Courtyard near Foggy Bottom for a meeting nearby. The room was esthetic, with lovely modern decorative touches. Bed and bedding was excellent as were the in-room facilities (bathroom, closet space, toiletries). But, the reception staff is in serious need of re-training and the food "bar" is abysmal. When I entered the hotel to check in, both men... More

We chose this hotel for the secure parking and because it is within walking distance to the west Mall monuments and the White House.

Stayed here for three nights on holiday. The hotel is new and all rooms felt fresh and clean. Room was a good size. Location of the hotel was excellent within walking distance to most of the main sights and museums. It's quiet in the area in the evening but certainly felt safe walking around in the evening.

This was my first stay in a Mall area D.C. hotel. I chose this location based on location (short-ish walk to the west Mall monuments) and price (cheaper than the other Marriott properties proximate to The Mall). Overall, it was a good, not a great, stay, with some distinct plusses and minuses. [Disclosure: I am a Gold level Marriott Reward... More

Great location, friendly staff but the rooms are very small and once the sofabed was opened, you could barely move about the room without bumping into the furniture. Air conditioning had been turned on for the season but it was cold outside and hotel couldn't provide extra blankets (everyone wanted them and they RAN OUT!). With non-opening windows, once you...
