“Welcome to the neighborhood!!.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2009

Stayed at the hotel for a week. It was nice to see the old Holiday Inn completely renovated. Nice location if you want to be close to shopping and dining of Chevy Chase. Everything was new and comfy.. I would not hesitate to stay over at the hotel again and again. Lobby smell is nice - ignore the earlier comments - it is like a scented candle smell.

I stayed at the Chevy Chase Marriott in July and I was quite pleased with it. The hotel was clean, except for a strange odor in the lobby area. The room was small, but cozy. There was a flat panel TV in the room that got really hot to the point that I could feel the heat radiating from it whenever I passed by. The bathroom was cool except that the shower handle seemed to have been shoved in instead of screwed on, so it kept falling off when I turned on the shower.

Overall, this was an extremely convenient location. There are restaurants close by (including a Cheesecake Factory and a Starbucks). A Giant Eagle is right around the corner, and there are a number of other stores in the area. It is extremely close to the Metro Station, and there are wonderful shopping opportunities around.

I really enjoyed staying here because of the convenience of the location. The staff was extremely helpful and polite. I thank Jurry (the front desk supervisor) and the rest of the staff for making my stay so pleasant!

Very nice and looked brand new. The bathroom door was kind of weird. It hung from the ceiling on a track. They had a place to eat on the first floor called the Bistro. Kind of expensive, but good food and good portions. The hotel is about 3 blocks down and across the street from the Friendship Heights Metro station. They didn't have postage stamps for sale, which I thought they said they had. It seemed like such a nice place would make the effort to have stamps available, but I guess not. We got a really good weekend rate, and at that same rate, we would definitely stay there again.

I was so afraid to stay at this hotel because of all of the negative reviews. I did not experience bad service and our rooms were clean. The hotel is brand new and is walking distance of Gucci, Cartier, Louis Vutton, and other high end stores. The parking is $15 per day but the wireless internet is free. They have a business center with 3-4 computers and an additional 3 computers for printing boarding passes only. I would definitely stay here again and skip the rental car because it is within 3 blocks of the subway station. It is also within walking distance of Cheesecake Factory, Maggiano's and McDonalds. There are several other restaurants and a CVS>

I booked this hotel due to location, however that is all they have (location) My stay was completely ruined by the way management handled our basic needs (dirty bathroom and rude manager) We will never stay at this Marriot hotel again.

This used to be the Holiday Inn, and Mariott has done well to renovate this property as a new Courtyard. It surprised me -- not decorated at all like the Courtyards I've stayed at in the past (though to be fair, it has been at least a year or two). The decor and spacing here is something like the W (very 'IKEA'-esque design), but with a completely different color scheme: bright/warm oranges and browns and yellows. I'm not sure yet if I like it or not -- it certainly is different. Don't misread that as me saying this place is edgy and cool like a W -- it is not. But it's pretty clear Mariott was thinking along those lines and outside of its traditional Courtyard approach with this one.

The rooms are fine -- a little small (it is Chevy Chase after all), but thoughtfully laid out and with good modern amenities like a zillion electrical outlets, free high speed internet connectivity, a glass shower, a very euro-ish toilet, etc.

The bed is disappointing though. It is *extremely* firm, and the pillows feel like they are made of foam. The linens are pretty rough. The bed just feels cheap.

That being said, for just under $200 a night, this is a pretty good option in Chevy Chase. The Embassy Suites is probably better on many fronts (even if it is a bit tired, certainly so in a comparative sense), but it is just always booked up and definitely costs more.

If you are a business traveler to Chevy Chase that needs the basics and appreciates a clean room with modern touches, the new Courtyard is a solid choice.

Embassy Suites does blow this away if you are traveling as a family though.
