“Pleasant stay in Rosslyn!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Pleasantly enjoyable stay at this Marriott Courtyard in Rosslyn! Spend a long Memorial weekend at this location as it is very close to the DC metro system and able to see all the favorable sites in the Nation's capital! Walking to the metro is not the problem because it is all down the hill but upon coming back from a long day of site seeing and all that walking you will have a challenge of walking back up the hill to the hotel! But the hotel will provide shuttle service within a reasonable distance. The hotel is well maintain, clean and they have a friendly staff that will assist you to your needs! Will stay here again in the near future!

I stayed here recently and I noticed I left my necklace in the room when I checked out I called told them where I left it and it was gone. So within the couple of hours that I called someone on the cleaning staff had taken it. I called to put in a claim for it with the Courtyard Corporate it took me calling 3x's to get a return call on the status and they are refusing to replace or give me the value for my necklace. (100$) I wouldn't care if it was not a gift but I do. So be aware they have staff who steals your personal belongings and then the hotel plays dumb and are useless.

My Compliments to the Courtyard Corp. for being the most useless staff to speak with.

Over time I have been using the Courtyards with more frequency due to the way they have been re-organized which is quite favorable to business trips. In general, they fit the need very well, particularly for shorter trips.

I found the Courtyard in Arlington/Rosslyn, Va is simply short on the basics that I have not found at others. No shampoo, plastic cups and only one bar of soap in the room. I got what I needed after I called, but such an oversight on a "prepared" room is not up to Marriott standards. The Bistro was understaffed at 0800 in the morning and it took a long time for the 11 guests to get breakfast in a timely manner. The sole person at the counter worked very very hard and cheerfully to accomodate everyone and was apologetic for the delays, but again - not the experience at other Courtyards. The value and location was good and the Cafe Asia restaurant around the corner is a keeper.

It is likely I will stay here again, but just up the street is a Marriott Residence Inn. I may try that next time to see if it is a better experience.

Rooms are small but window wall gives illusion of space. Oddly, except for a lone ad for cruises, there were no brochures or book on DC sights or restaurants. Mimeograph sheets with an area map and list of restaurants are available at the front desk. By the front door umbrellas are on offer for sale, not loan. The shuttle to nearby places is a big plus. Hint: if you run around the room naked, close the blinds or you will flash the people In the apartments directly across the street. Parking is extra. Typically for DC room rates are higher than at many other Courtyards around the country.

Good location. Short walk to Metro.
Hotel was very clean and quiet and priced reasonable. Only negative was it lacked a typical restaurant. It did however have a coffee bar with breakfast quick foods and juice that was OK.
Only bar service in the evening was in the same breakfast bar and prices were very expensive for a cocktail, $27 for two premium drinks. I would recommend and would return.

The sign in front of the hotel is small and easy to miss, but once we found the place, we were very pleased. Room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. Had plenty of electrical outlets (which can be in short supply or inconveniently located in many hotels), so we had no trouble charging our electronics, etc. Had some trouble finding the hair dryer (it was not in the bathroom, where you'd expect to find it, but hidden inside a dark cloth bag hung in the wardrobe). Only other complaint was that when we checked in, the desk clerk told us the hours that breakfast would be served the next morning, leading us to assume there was a complimentary breakfast. That's the case at some other Marriott properties, but not here; there's simply a counter-service cafe that offers items for sale. However, there's also a Safeway market about a block away, as well as several other restaurants close by. As other reviewers have mentioned, the Rosslyn Metro stop is also conveniently located nearby, too. And if you're visiting Georgetown University, as we were, there's a free shuttle bus that runs from the Rosslyn stop to the campus. Many thanks to Loubna at the front desk, who not only researched that for us but sent a bellman up to our room with a printout of the shuttle schedule. Loubna gets top marks for stellar service, but overall I'm rating the hotel service only "very good" because of the desk clerk who misled us about breakfast, and the other clerk we dealt with at checkout, who balked at giving us back the luggage we had left at the front desk just a few hours earlier. We could not find the claim tickets, but I told her I could describe the items in detail. She insisted that wasn't good enough, and we spent another 10 minutes fruitlessly searching for the claim tickets. Only when I said that I simply couldn't find them, but asked her to compare the luggage tags to my ID, did she finally say she remembered us and would release the luggage to us.

We stayed for one night in late April. We arrived late on a Friday night after attending a Washington Nationals game - the hotel was only a 5 mile ride or so. Although we arrived after 10:00 pm, there was still quite a bit of life in the lobby. We were greeted promptly by the front desk arttendant - she made arranegments for me to purchase a coffee from the bistro tht was closing down.

We were very impressed by the rooms that were spacious and clean. We were scheduled to check out the next morning, but what impressed me most was some of the things that we didn;t take advantage of. This hotel is ideally situated for visiting DC. The hotel has a secure parking garage - a bargain at $8 a night. Two popular attractions - Arlington Cemetary and the Iwo Jima Memorial - are very close. Georgetown is an easy walk over the Key Bridge - all other Washington tourist attractions can easily be accessed by the Metrorail which has a stop just a few blocks from the hotel.

This hotel, being a Courtyard, does not offer some of the amenities that you will find in a full service Marriott (the Key Bridge Marriott is two blocks away). There are not a huge number of dining options within a one block radius (although there are plent of choices withing a few blocks). These things being said, if you are looking for a clean, comfortable reasonably priced hotel as a place from which to visit DC, you will not be disappointed with this hotel.

Room Tip: High rooms may offer views of Washington attractions
