“Good Trip, OK Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

I liked the hotel, but didn't exactly love it. The service was good, but one of the front desk women was sort of bitter (I don't really blame her though, it was around midnight when we arrived). Our room had a king bed and a pull out couch. The pull out couch was much too hard/ uncomfortable for me, so my dad ending up sleeping on it. Also, to get to the pool you walk through an area of conference rooms and then you walk through the fitness room. When we went to the pool, some of the conferences were still going on. It felt sort of weird walking through knowing that this business people could walk out anytime. The hotel has a shuttle to the metro, but I found to not be exactly punctual for pick-up. After staying for a few days we just started walking to the metro. The hotel is very close (five to ten minutes walking) from an underground mall (I believe called Crystal City Malls). There are plenty of food places there and some shopping. Also you can use the mall to reach the metro. I suggest buying your metrocard at an off time, even if it means going before you actually are riding the metro. If you walk across the street from the hotel, you can reach a McDonald's VERY quickly. The hotel is average, but the setup is sort of strange. It's a great distance from everything.

The room is spacious with 2 big beds . Very well located walking distance from the Metro Station , a few restaurants around . CVS near by where you can even buy card for the Metro.

The only negative point a cleaning lady open our bedroom without knocking when we were inside .

My Family booked this hotel as a last minute deal to take a weekend trip up to DC. The hotel was clean, well decorated and hospitable. The parking is very reasonable for the price for the duration of the stay. We found the subway station about two blocks away for an easy walk.

The breakfast was amazing. It was just like a restaurant style ordering feature that is included in the price of the hotel. The staff was so friendly and dedicated that they made sure everyone got what they ordered. Even thou they had this hotel packed with every boy scout in the western hemisphere and a family reunion, they were very observant of every one at the place and made sure every one of our needs were met.

We had a little accident at the pool, my son was playing to hard and got sick, and the lifeguard was so nice and helpful and took care of us right a way. He was excellent!!

I would highly recommend this stay for any family that is looking for a nice hotel close to the metro and a staff that loves their jobs and wants to make you feel welcome.

We arrived after ten for check in. The front desk clerk was extremely helpful. I asked for a rollaway bed and she said that the room I had reservations for wouldn't accommodate another bed so she upgraded my room to a suite at no extra charge. So nice. The room was a two room suite with comfortable king bed...the bathroom tiny. We were only there for the night but were disappointed that were no places open to eat after ten in the vicinity of the hotel. It looked like a ghost town. Also, the snack bar in the hotel was closed as well. Parking was self parking in a garage. Hohum experience except for the upgraded room.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade to a suite on check in, if available

My stay at the Marriot Key Bridge was pretty good. Unfortunately, I had a 5th floor room on the corner and the A/C unit on the roof below was quite loud - all the time! And, I had to have my room key/card replace on six different occasions. What made my stay better were some really great employees. Omar, the Concierge, Juan at the bar, the Bellman, and the maid service. All of these people were all friendly and efficient. The location was pretty good in relationship to sightseeing and visiting Washington's great venues.

Room Tip: Get a room above the 7th floor. They are much quieter.

This hotel is a short drive away from Washington DC, and it is perfect. This hotel has a huge room, and the beds are soft and comfortable. The hotel is generally super clean, and the staff are always happy to give you maps of the city. There is a business centre, so you can surf the Internet and print things out. There is a great high speed wifi. In the room, we had a huge tv, and a vast table. The tv had loads of different channels. The toilets are clean, and it has a marble table. One concern is that the hotel is too far from a metro station, but it would be fine if you rented or brought a car with you. I rate this hotel 8.5/10.

The sign of a great business is not that it never makes a mistake, but how it recovers from one. We had reservations for a busy holiday weekend for a suite, but upon check in, the hotel was oversold. We were put into a different room and our rate was adjusted and offered breakfast. A nice touch at check in and we were pleased with the room. This is your standard Courtyard, but its my favorite chain because there are no surprises. The room is comfortable, the lobby is nice and the restaurant is well priced. The location of the hotel was perfect, just a few blocks from the Rosslyn Metro station and there were several dining options near the hotel. Parking is a good value at $10 per day. We also like to visit Georgetown, just a couple of miles away. For families visiting the tourist sites in DC, this is an ideal property.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street may hear some street noise.
