“Great location and comfort for stop on the way”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Our family of four stayed here in a 2-queen room while driving from Buffalo to Myrtle Beach. This is pretty much the midpoint of the drive through PA and down I-95. The hotel is 2 minutes from the interstate, and located around a sizable little lake, surrounded by stores, boutiques and eateries in a nicely-designed setting. Room was certainly big enough, beds were comfortable and the shower was fantastic! The only downsides were the ventilation system which constantly switched on and off with a fairly loud "thunk" to maintain warmth in the room, and the lack of a simple (and inexpensive) breakfast either in the hotel or nearby. One of the cleaner, more comfortable and pleasant roadside stops I've made.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the lake are preferred... the others overlook the parking arcade.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Recently, during a business stay at this hotel, the general manager went out of his way to help my company salvage a meeting (which was to take place at a government facility, but the government facility was shut down due to bad weather conditions). He was extremely responsive by making available the hotel's conference room, and we were able to contact other meeting attendees and still have our all-day meeting by using this hotel's facilities. The general manager went out of his way to help us with a projector, power strips, and all of the necessary logistics. He showed genuine concern for our needs. I also noticed how attentive he also was to other guests in the breakfast area...doing whatever he could to help them enjoy their stay. I will stay at this hotel any time I am in the area.

I will definitely stay here again. The staff is very friendly, the breakfast buffet was great and its location is great. There are 2 views they have. A lake view and the shopping view (not sure if that's what it's called but it over looks the street). I stayed in the lake view and at 6:45am the sun woke me up so close your curtains if you don't want to wake up early. I didn't really care since I was going to get breakfast anyways.

Dear Valued Guest,

We are delighted to hear you enjoyed our breakfast buffet during stay with us. Breakfast is definitely a reason to wake up early. We might have to start using the “shopping view” as an alternative in describing the other room that does not have the “lake view”. Thank you for posting your groovy review. We hope to see you back in the Gaithersburg area soon.

Warm Regards,

Gaithersburg Courtyard Management Team

This is consistently one of the best Courtyards that I stay at. The location is top notch, close to many local businesses, and within walking distance of shops, restaurants, cinema, and gym for the evening. The hotel is well maintained, rooms are adequate and clean, and breakfast is well stocked and hot. I stayed here in Dec 2012 and it was my fourth stay for business; I will be back again.

This is a decent hotel with very attenative staff und clean and comfortable rooms. The many restaurants, shops and the cinema centre make it easy to spend time out or find a place to eat. the nice lake in front give it a nice appearance.
Better come by car, since public transport is very limited in the area.
We stayed at the inauguration weekend which made the rooms very expensive. But otherwise I would say this is good value for money and I can definitely recommend it.

Completely different from you standard Courtyard, which I view as a good thing. More modern and stylish.

The good: very attentive desk staff, spotless room. Good location with lots of shopping and restaurants within walking distance.

The not so good: parking can be a bit of a hassle, but it's complementary. Lobby is small.

The net: I'd stay here again, but there are several other Marriott properties close by. Usually I stay at the Springhill Suites to save a few bucks (+ free breakfast.)

Room Tip: Apparently the lake view rooms are more desirable.

They do not have central ventilation meaning that your room is outfitted with a very noisy and clanky room "radiator." It was constantly adjusting the temperature in the room as it was a very cold night. If I elected to "keep the fan on" I was still bothered by the noise of the fan and blower. Both were very very loud and did not provide for a restful nights sleep. With the last remodel, Marriott should have invested a bit more to provide most of their guests what they are looking for: a comfortable, quiet night's sleep.
