“Nice Average Review”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

This is a basic hotel located at a convenient place in Rosslyn (walking distance to two metro stations). The facility is older but nicely appointed. The lobby area is very modern and has a restaurant/bar. There us a small gym with a few nice machines. There is also a nice indoor pool and hot tub - open evenings during the week. Our king room was fine although a little small. The room temperature struggled a bit but it was during a very cold snap. Parking is available in an underground garage for $11 a day.

Hi HappyValley!

It's nice to hear most of our facilities suited your needs for your stay. I know it was cold during your stay so did you get a chance to utilize our complimentary shuttle? We want you to stay warm! It sounds like the hot tub helped you warm up but we apologize for your cooler room temperature. Our engineering team would be happy to take a look at any maintenance issues you may have during your stay - if this was not taken care of during your stay, please give us a call so we know which room to look at.

If you should stay with us in the future, we do have suites available that offer a full living room with upgraded amenities such as extra closet space, a TV, sofa, microwave, a larger vanity, etc. The price difference between the standard and suite rooms is not very large so it is worth the money if you need extra space.

While we are happy you had a nice stay, we want your stay to be exceptional! We would love the chance to serve you again to show you our wonderful service so please feel free to reach out to me if you return. I look forward to hearing from you with your answers!

Sincerely,

Mathew Anderson

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

This is a great location with very, very affordable overnight self-parking for guests. I have stayed here three times in the last six weeks and have never encountered any real problems.

The staff are friendly -- the service is what you would expect for a Courtyard. The hotel is very clean, unlike some hotels whose housekeeping staff cut corners.

My only complaint are the in-room televisions, which aren't as big and lack the high-quality, crisp picture quality of other Courtyard hotels. The free wireless internet is more than sufficient too.

Just be sure to place a 'do not disturb' sign on your door, as the housekeepers start cleaning rooms at 8 a.m. I had them try to clean my room at 8:30 a.m. twice; once mid-week and another on a Saturday morning, when I was trying to sleep in after a long week of work.

All in all, this is an average Courtyard that offers an excellent value over the very expensive hotels across the river in Washington.

It's great to hear that you've stayed with us so much recently! I'm glad our location, staff and hotel cleanliness have provided enough value to keep you coming back.

I have let our Engineering Supervisor know of your complaint about the TV quality so he will take a look to see if any adjustments can be made. The housekeeping cleaning times comments have also been passed on to our Housekeeping Supervisor. To help better accommodate your schedule next time, placing a Do Not Disturb sign on the door is a good option but we can also accept a request of when you would like your room cleaned. Just let us know and we'd be happy to help!

A common line I like to say about our hotel is "You get all of the conveniences of being in DC without paying DC prices" so I'm glad it sounds like you feel similarly. Feel free to reach out to me at mathew.anderson@marriott.com if you're in town. We'd love to host you again! Good luck with the cold weather this weekend in Michigan.

Mathew Anderson

We visited the Washington DC area for Thanksgiving and stayed at this property. It was very clean, the staff was friendly and the room rate was very good for the area. Their daily parking rate was also much lower than other hotels in the area.

Thank you for your good review Charles! This year's Thanksgiving was actually very busy compared to previous years so I'm glad you were able to enjoy the holiday with the rest of our guests. Just before I wrote this we had a guest who stayed with us Thanksgiving already return because she enjoyed herself so much so I hope we will get to see you again too. Happy New Year!

I highly recommend this hotel: Very friendly helpful staff. Located in a quiet residential area, close to the Metro. Indoor coffee shop ( breakfast and dinner only ) with a large variety of food at a very reasonable price. What I liked most is that during morning rush hour breakfast, the hotel staff helps to minimize the line of hungry guests. Very spacious clean, equipped and well maintained room (almost a mini suit ), bathroom with all the usual amenities. Advice: When arriving from DCA or Union Station, take a cab. Do not take the Metro to Rosslyn station because though it is close to the hotel, you"ll have to climb a quite steep hill – a very unpleasant "shlapping" experience ( The Yiddish word for carrying / dragging ) your luggage.

Room Tip: The rear rooms on the 9 – 10th floor (the highest ones) face very close the landing / take off trac...

Thank you very much for your glowing review. I'm happy that the first thing you mentioned was our staff. Our number one priority is to provide every single guest exceptional service: from the way you are greeted, how your food and beverage is prepared, and down the the cleanliness of your rooms, every detail is significant to us. I'm glad our efforts helped your enjoy your stay.

To follow up on your advice, I have an even better option which will also save you the cab money. When you arrive at the Rosslyn Metro stop, simply call the hotel at (703) 528-2222, ext. 0, and take advantage of our complimentary shuttle service. This will save you the "shlap". Our shuttle runs from 7:00am-10:00pm. I apologize you did not get a chance to utilize this service upon your arrival but we would be glad to pick you up next time!

Should you happen to visit us again, my name is Mat Anderson and I am the Property Coordinator onsite here. My main responsibilities include caring for the needs of our corporate, government, group booking, repeat stay, and extended stay guests.

If you should need anything for your future stays at our Rosslyn Courtyard, please feel free to use me as your point of contact. Hopefully we will see you again soon and thank you for choosing our hotel!

Mathew Anderson

This hotel is located a short, although mostly uphill walk, from the Rosslyn Metro station. The Metro 5A bus also stops at Rossyln, so makes this a very easy destination from Dulles Airport as well. It is located in a generally quiet, residential area. The hotel rooms are spacious and come with all the normal Courtyard amenities. There is also a Safeway grocery store located a block away, which i always find as a nice convenience when traveling. As well as the Metro access mentioned above, it is a comfortable walk from here to the back entrance of Arlington Cemetery, while viewing the Marine Corp Iwo Jima Memorial and the Netherlands Carrillion along the way.

Perfect place to stay if you are part of the Marine Corps Marathon. Walking distance to many restaurants, a grocery store & Metro. Big rooms, very comfortable beds and pillows. mini fridge. Great service, staff recommended many places to eat. Felt safe. was quite even though right in Arlington.

We stayed 3 nights and found it an excellent base for sightseeing round Washington. There are a number of grocery stores and restaurants in the vicinity and the whole area felt very safe. The staff were really helpful at all times and offered to run us in the free shuttle bus but we just walked. Facilities in the hotel itself are great and the kids enjoyed the pool. Parking was $10 a day but that didn't seem unreasonable for secure underground parking. Only 5 minutes to the Metro and 1 stop into town itself. Would certainly recommend and use again hopefully.
