This property leaves much to be desired. There's a shuttle to the metro. But it only runs til 10pm, and there's only 1 shuttle. It's supposed to be a metro shuttle, but it apparently used for other destinations, which means if it's out, you're stuck. They advertise free breakfast, but it's a ruse. What you get is a voucher dor$13... More

Front desk staff were nice but the room was dirty! It also smelled like body odor (like they wiped everything down with a used towel??). The toilet was dirty, there was mold in the shower, there were hairs in the shower, the AC was loud and must have had dust and mold due to my daughter's allergic reaction. The rate... More

Checked in with the app the day before, found staff super helpful. Loved the sundries (needed nail polish remover) in the store. Lovely room within walking distance of ethnic restaurants--French, Irish, Middle Eastern, etc. Near the American Nurses Association headquarters. Easy parking.

I have stayed at the Courtyard Marriott in Downtown Silver Spring many times because my company has a corporate rate and the office is down the road. I continue to stay at this hotel because the location is convenient- it's close to the Whole Foods, movie theater and many stores. I also like that the hotel gym is the Washington... More

We had a recent stay at this hotel. I agree with other reviews which state the air conditioning is loud. I however, found it to be white noise, to drown out any other street sounds, neighbor sounds, etc. it was a constant noise, which did not bother me. I usually don't sleep that well in hotels, so this had concerned... More

Not a top rating. While the location was near many points of interest in Silver Springs, the parking arrangement was awkward at best and poorly explained. As for in-room amenities, the beds were way too soft. The tap water was highly chlorinated and if you wanted an alternative, you had to buy it (>$20 per 20 oz. bottle). There was... More

This is a great hotel in the centre of Silver Spring with lots of shops and restaurants nearby. The rooms and spacious and quiet. very convenient parking on the 5th floor of the Wayne Garage and very reasonably priced. However the great staff made this a fun and enjoyable stay. Thanks to Pierre for all he did for our party!

Booked this hotel last minute and what a great choice. The front desk clerk was so welcoming , the room was spacious and very clean. Our room had a small patio which was nice since the wweather was nice. Very reasonably priced. We will definitely stay here the next time we are in the area.

I like the hotel's location. It is very convenient to the Metro, Ellsworth Drive (with entertainment, dining, and shopping), and government buildings nearby. Getting there was tough. It was not clear from the web site parking was in the adjacent building. Google Maps brought me to the hotel with it on the left, and no obvious signage from that direction... More

My family and I choose this hotel because we wanted the metro to be easily accessible during our stay. We found that it was so that worked out for us. We requested the hotel shuttle twice during our stay and was satisfied with the service. The lobby is nice and the food from the Bistro was good. Now the bad... More
