We stayed here on a weekend getaway to DC (and also to see the NRA Museum). We were able to check in early, which was nice. The room was very clean, however, had the same problem with the light switches at the Courtyard we stayed at in Richmond- they are really awkwardly placed for the toilet/shower area and sink/closet area....

My daughter and I stayed here to attend a dance competition. It was a very nice and clean hotel. Very quite and located near plenty of stores. The staff was very friendly and the starbucks inside was very helpful for early mornings. I would recommend this hotel. Check in and check out was easy. It look older on the outside... More

I stayed at this hotel for a weekend business trip. The location was a bit difficult to find, and when my GPS was having issues, I called the hotel. The woman who I spoke with was unable to assist with directions, and ultimately I was only five minutes from the hotel. It does appear that the rooms have been somewhat... More

The Marriott Courtyard has been at this location for a number of years. The hotel has undergone several renovations and is in pretty good shape. The staff is friendly and helpful when requested. The rooms are quiet, comfortable and the bedding and linen were adequate. This Courtyard offers a limited service bar/restaurant that is reasonably priced. However as noted in... More

Perhaps arriving very late tainted my view of the room. The sink had a large crack, the toilet required multiple flushes to fully engage, its seat was smaller than the bowl and the mustard yellow wallpaper left the impression of age. The 1960s modern decor added to the impression the room needed remolding. On the other hand, the service was... More

The rooms and the facilities were nice, clean, and reasonably priced and I wanted to give 4 stars but several of the employees at the front desk were kind of rude, hence the 3 stars instead of 4. There were two of us here on business (separate rooms) and we each stayed two nights. One of the evening front desk... More

We usually try to stay at this Marriott Courtyard because of the great location. Weekend rates are very good, although they have continued to climb as the last couple of years have gone by. They have a nice work out room, a small restaurant and coffee in the morning. They recently stopped having coffee available in the lobby since they... More

I stayed in Marriott Courtyard in Fairfax, VA for 3 weeks and found it a curse to hospitality industry since there are no exhaust fans in toilets. The front desk dont want to listen to you and behave like sheriffs of the hotel. Hotel has no shuttle service at all, breakfast serving to guests is upto the front desk if... More

Stayed 3 nights here for a college visit to George Mason as well as visiting family/friends in DC area as well as sight seeing. Was a quick 10 minutes to Mason (primary reason for visit). We could have stayed closer to DC to be closer to our friends/relatives, but the cost/room increased exponentially as well as parking fees, etc. We... More
