I was in Silver Spring for the weekend looking for an apartment and had my last appointment on Monday morning at 10am. I made arrangements with the hotel for a 1pm checkout. When I got back to the hotel at noon I found the cleaning crew in my room finishing up and they threw out all my papers I had... More

We are Marriott rewards customers and chose this hotel for the easy commute to Catholic University. The staff at this hotel were extremely courteous, friendly and accomodating.

This hotel is in a great location in the middle of Silver Spring close to restaurants and movie theatres. It is attached to a large parking garage which has free parking on weekends and inexpensive parking during the week. A shuttle van can take you to and from the Silver Spring Metro Station. The hotel does not have it's own... More

Uphill walk with luggage from Red Line Metro 45 - 50 minutes from DCA. Best hotel in Silver Spring. Outdoor courtyard off lobby. Right in the middle of shops, restaurants in Silver Spring. I stay here about 10 stays per year. Always expensive. Rooms are big, always clean, ask for street view, not parking lot view. 10th floor you can... More

The hotel was extremely clean and in a fabulous location. Right outside the hotel were many restaurants, shopping and an IMAX theatre. The Metro station was two blocks away which made going to DC very convenient. The hotel had a casual restaurant which served delicious food. Also the parking garage is connected to the hotel and only cost .75 cents... More

So, it's a standard Courtyard by Marriott - nice clean rooms, well maintained, with a lobby bistro with snacks and light bites.

The hotel was quite nice, if a bit far from easy access to the attractions of DC. But the real problem was finding it. "Unprepossessing" is not adequate to locate its entrance. We were walking from the nearby Metro station (about 4 blocks - partly uphill). The main entrance was so poorly marked that we walked past it twice. (Yes,... More
