“Good stay; rooms and lobby renovated and quite comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2011

I've been disappointed in traveling to different Courtyards and the wide variety between those that have not been updated and those that have. This one has and it shows. The lobby has the new Courtyard design, and the rooms have all the updated furniture. I stayed in a 2-queen suite, which has the space of 2 full rooms - everything was fully functional, comfortable bed, and 2 HD TVs (as a solo business traveler, I only needed one at a time). The air conditioning units are a little loud, but a small nit relative to a nice stay. Compared to the Key Bridge Marriott, which is older and stale, this Marriott property is much nicer and worth the extra couple blocks walk to Georgetown (and is equidistant to the Rosslyn metro).

If you can't stay right in DC, this is a fairly decent alternative.

PROS:
-A quick 5-10 minute walk to the nearest Metro (Rosslyn), and from there a pretty quick (5-10 minute) ride to downtown DC on the orange or blue lines
-Starbucks, Safeway grocery, and CVS pharmacy practically around the corner
-Even at the height of cherry blossom season, they still had rooms available
-The lobby looks new and the staff are friendly
-There's some kind of casual restaurant in the lobby - I didn't try the food but it's convenient to have the option
-Rooms are decent sized, fairly clean, and beds are comfortable
-Free internet in rooms (but it's wired, not wireless)

CONS:
-The hotel is uphill atop a steep incline (but walking downhill towards the Metro is fine)
-VERY loud construction across the street started 7:15am each morning, looks like a new building just started so this could go on for months
-The free room internet is annoyingly wired, not wireless, so you can't plop on the bed after a long workday with your laptop and go online - you're tethered to the desk
-Still pretty pricey ($594 for 2 nights double) for a non-DC hotel, though - in all fairness - it was cherry blossom season
-The nearby Metro serves the blue and orange lines, which are hyper-crowded at rush hour - you sometimes have to wait for several trains to go by before you can (barely) squeeze in
- Returned 9:30pm one night from a work dinner and the streets were eerily quiet for a major metro area, I stuck to the main avenues & but it did make me a bit uncomfortable (a longtime Virginia resident later told me that despite the business vibe, she still considered the Rosslyn area "slightly sketchy")

Room Tip: Ask for room far away from construction

There was no water during some daytime hours during every day of my weekend stay. Elevators were out of service part of the time, and I had to use the freight elevator. The front desk was often empty, and calls to the front desk may go unanswered. The staff sometimes seemed clueless, and the stuff left in a safe deposit box may get misplaced.

I stayed in this hotel for four nights without a car. The experience was mediocre.

Upsides: clean room, courteous staff

Downsides: extremely loud construction of building across the street, hotel restaurant had poor selection of food items, my back hurt after waking up in the morning

Mixed: hotel has a fitness facility but the only strength-training equipment is a set of dumbbells (missing one), hotel is 4 blocks from a metro station

Stayed at this Courtyard for a weekend visit to DC. It is funny that Courtyard advertises the "new lobby", well have to say it is nicer than the old lobby. The hotel is has a nice location close to the Rosslyn Metro and the Courthouse - Clarendon area. There are lots of restaurants, one we liked was the Village next to Ray's Hell Burger and a nice walk to Arlington Cemetery and Georgetown over the Key Bridge.

The location is great, only 4 blocks from the Metro. The rooms were on the small side, if you are traveling with teens you will feel a bit crowded in a Suite. The room was very clean, and the staff very helpful. The room amenities leave a little to be desired. Internet access was good and free. DON'T bother with getting the breakfast with the room. It, by far, was the most disappointing part of this hotel. There is a great diner within 6 minutes that is perfect for meals.

Hi speed internet is wired in the rooms and less than 1 mbs.

Jacuzzi broken, coffee urns empty, and "suite" extremely small
