“Two great stays!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

I stayed at the hotel while visiting my daughter at American University. The hotel is convienently located about 3 blocks from the Friendship Heights red line Metro stop, which seemed to be a very safe, upscale area.(Saks 5th Ave, Jimmy Choo, Tiffany's,etc) Although there are not any restaurants in the immediate area of the hotel, there are many within a 5-10 minute walk, along with a Giant Food Mart.

Our room during our first stay was a "handicap" room which I found out on my second stay is slightly larger than a regular room. Both rooms were immaculately clean, there was a flat nice flat screen TV, but changing channels was a little aggrevating because it seemed to get stuck on every change. (a minor complaint, I know). My only complaint was that in my bathroom, there was a small wall that divided the sink counter up into one VERY small counter and the sink almost next to the toilet. It was a little strange. One thing that I did like was there was no annoying knocking in the morning to clean my room. There were two different kinds of pillows on my bed, so I could sorta customize it for my best sleep. Other than that, the free internet was a little slow at times, but was fine. The front desk was always helpful and cheerful. I would stay here again and again!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

The Chevy Chase Courtyard is a well-located hotel in a high-end shopping district on Wisconsin Avenue. The Washington metro is about at 10 minute walk. There are many nice restaurants in the area. The room was very clean and comfortable with nice bedding and pillows. The bathroom was large and bright with a nice walkin shower. The only negative thing about the smallish room was that it needs better lighting over the dressing mirror. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We ate in the restaurant each morning and two evenings. The food was very good and the service efficient. We will certainly choose this hotel again when visiting Washington.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

The hotel is well-maintained and newly renovated. The atmosphere is of the hotel is more modern compared to other hotels and in some ways already has an out-dated look to it because of it's attempt to be ultra modern. Nevertheless, the stay was good. Beds were comfortable and the hotel staff is very friendly and accomodating. The fitness room is far too small and lacks equipment that you would expect from a hotel like this and the area that it is located. I would agree with others that the price is far too expensive for what you get, however there isn't really many options in this immediate area so without comparable competition, there's no need for them to lower the price. All in all, I would stay here again.

Dear MidGeorgia,

Thank you for your feedback on our hotel and staff. We are happy that you feel our hotel is well maintained and our staff is friendly.

We regret that our fitness room is too small for your liking and wish there was a way that we could change that. However, we hope that our ability to keep our equipment well maintained and up-to-date, will keep you coming back. There are large health clubs within walking distance to the hotel that may better suit your needs. Our front desk staff would be happy to give you that information upon your next visit. We look forward to your return to the hotel.

Location is great, 5 mins from Friendship Heights Metro Station( Red Line). All of the attractions of Washington DC can be reached within 20 minutes
Many shopping (Bloomingdales) and dining possibilities nearby(we ate Whole Foods and Cheessecake Factory)

Staff was professional

The room was big, clean, and the bed was very comfortable.

Three of us were traveling together to go see the sites in DC. The metro station is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Completely walk-able. About an hour via metro from Ronald Reagan Airport. 20 minutes via metro to the National Mall. The atmosphere is very modern, very clean. Rooms were a little small, but nothing that prevented movement or felt claustrophobic. The shower-head has an extremely weak pressure/flow. The mattress was a little hard for my taste, but the pillows were very comfortable. The staff were always very pleasant and helpful. There is a market that replaces any vending machines in the lobby area, but the prices are incredibly reasonable. A 20 oz bottle of soda was $1.50, which was cheaper than the close by CVS. The restaurant was reasonably priced as well, nothing over $20 and there were only a few items that were on the high end. It was all very tasty. The only reason I give it a 4 instead of a 5 is that it was a little pricey. We stayed there for 4 nights and got a discounted price on the last night, but it was still tight.

Nice enough staff, asked for a room far away from the elevators & the request wasn't granted. No tubs, but the housekeeping staff does a thorough job & the staff is pleasant. The neighborhood is safe; there is shopping, restaurants & a metro stop all close. Recommend despite the other issues.

Dear Run4panic,

Thank you for reviewing our hotel after your recent stay. It is always nice to hear that our staff did their jobs thoroughly and were pleasant to interact with. We agree that our location within walking distance to metro, shopping and restaurants is a plus and we want to keep you coming back to enjoy the area.

I am sorry that you were not informed that we do have a bathub/shower combination in our rooms with double queen beds. If you don't mind having that bed type, you may note your desire for a bathtub in your reservation under comments and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

We look forward to having you stay with us again soon!

I've stayed at this hotel several times and have found it very comfortable and conveniently located. The rooms are clean with all the amenities you expect, the decor is pleasant and the staff is terrific. They really try to accommodate your every need.

As one reviewer commented, the room rates are steep but sometimes you can get a discounted rate.
