“Could have been better...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

My friend and I came for the Veggie Fest. Check-in was sterile - just give me your credit card and sign here. Parking was $29.50 which is probably the norm for the area. At least there is unlimited in & out for that rate. Room was by the ice machine but very quiet. The a/c was blasting on the lowest setting. A call to the front desk resulted in being placed on hold and we disconnected. However, a callback came quickly after that. We enjoyed the fest and enjoyed a 15 minute walk to a restaurant and organic food store. The room was nice with the exception of what appeared to be a blood stain on the bedding. I went down to the gym when I could not sleep. Towels and cups were all over the place and there were no ear plugs for the treadmill screens in the labelled box. Unfortunately, we did not get to use the whirlpool, but some guests entering said it was very nice. The next morning I found only coffee in the room. Maybe next time there will be tea? No newspaper. Nice hot shower. Breakfast was pretty good and the staff friendly. I liked the big screen in the lobby which showed the weather, places of interest, etc. The Metro is close by too!

We picked this hotel because we wanted to be close to the Nationals Stadium. Its working distance, less then 2 blocks away in a nice clean neighborhood. Right next to Washington Canal Park, which is very nice. Check in was very easy and staff was friendly. We used the valet parking with the hotel. $29.50 for less then 24 hours but I've been getting used to hotels charging a lot for parking. We had a room on the 9th floor at the end of the hallway with a king bed, sofa, flat screen TV & mini fridge. The room was extremely clean. Bathroom was also very clean. The bed was very comfortable. One complaint I would have is that you could hear people walking & talking through out the hallway. But it wasn't to bad. I would stay here again. And recommend to anyone staying in the Navy Yard/Capitol Hill area of DC. Also, the espresso bar called Lot 38 attached to hotel is great!

Room Tip: Great hotel to stay in if going to see a National baseball game! Perfect walking distance!

My office co-sponsored a conference in DC recently. I had four packed suitcases and two boxes filled with conference materials. Roberto was incredibly kind, helpful, always had a smile on his face, and could not do enough to make my stay enjoyable! The Courtyard Washington Capitol is blessed to have such a dedicated, hard-working employee!!!

This hotel was awesome. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Nice accommodations. Great location with access to many restaurants and other things. I couldn't believe that there was no charge for parking. Many hotels charge a small fortune. Sade, who works front desk, is the best! Sade went out of her way to meet my needs. Great experience!

This Marriott is 1 block from the Metro which gives you easy access to all DC tourist sites without paying downtown rates. It is walking distance to the stadium and up-and-coming waterfront and within 1-2 blocks of distance of several solid restaurants (Gordon Biersch, Kruba Thai and Sushi), quality pubs (Justin's Cafe, Park Tavern), and fast food (Subway, 5 Guys, Starbucks). Several more restaurants will open soon on the waterfront. Eastern Market with a ton of restaurants is a nice walk (less than a mile) or a 5 minute cab ride away. A CVS is 1 block away. The hotel itself is spotless. While the menu is limited, the food is very good. Staff are excellent and very helpful. I am a frequent business traveler and have never had a service problem or bad meal in the year+ I've been staying there. Decor is fine; typical Marriott. My only complaint is the desk chair that Marriott uses in ALL their hotels. It is awful. Sits way too low even at max height, and leans way back, providing zero back support. You might not care if you are there for a night, but as a business traveler there every week, it is pretty unpleasant when trying to work on a laptop at a desk every night.
