“Well Suited for Business or Pleasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

I just spent 3 nights (Friday-Monday) here while traveling for business. The hotel is located conveniently in Washingtonian Center. Garage parking is free and right next door. Once your car is parked, you'll have no need for it as the location of the hotel is central to many restaurants and shops all within walking distance around the lovely "Rio" area. The area is always busy and I felt very safe to walk around. The hotel is only a short drive away from the main area of Rockville, so this hotel is also convenient if you are traveling there for business.

The front desk staff was especially friendly, which was appreciated. The rooms are of standard Marriott quality and are adequately spacious and well kept. My room had a lovely view of the lake however noise from the boardwalk area was noticeable on all three nights until at least 11:30. Upper floors would likely solve that problem. The pool/fitness area was small but more than sufficient to meet my needs.

Breakfast is not included in the room rate and is $13 for the buffet or a la carte items of your choosing. Starbucks is across the street and the Corner Bakery is a few blocks up, and I preferred those options for breakfast.

Room Tip: To avoid noise from the boardwalk, ask for a room on an upper floor. The views overlooking the lake...

This hotel sits in the center of Washingtonian Center and provides plenty of things to do in the area by walking. And if you need to go to Washington DC, it's a short drive or bus ride (Route 74 or 54) to the Shady Grove Metro station ($5 daily parking) on the red line.

With a child we stayed in a 8th floor one-bedroom suite, which is very large and equipped with fridge and microwave. And it's not expensive at all on weekends.

One negative: due to proximity to a grill resaurant, the room has a some smell of grill smoke from time to time. I think the hotel should look at their air filtration or air circulation. It was not a problem to us, however.

We are happy to hear you enjoyed the one-bedroom suite; it is perfectly equipped for a multi person weekend stay! We are glad you took advantage of our proximity to the Shady Grove Metro Station to head into Washington D.C. We anticipate you and your families next arrival to be just as enjoyable as the last!

Everytime I visit the Gaithersburg md area I stay at court yard marriot at washingtonion center. I absolutly love it. Its very nice super clean with spacious comfortable, and quite rooms. The staff is awesome! They are always very cheerful, happy, and helpful. Especially the ladies at the front desk. Their warm and inviting personalities makes my stay even more enjoyable.
The hotel is in an amazing location with a beautiful landscape, right on the boardwalk overlooking the lake. Which house fish, geese, and ducks. It is also open to paddle boats or a casual trial walk around the perimeter. Close to many restaurants, shopping possibilities, and entertainment. Definitely worth the trip, but more importantly worth the price.

A month or so we did small sleepover for my teenager at this hotel because of the proximity to the movie theaters a lot of restaurants,and a lot of clothing shops. The gilrs had a great time and the service was amaazing.
A month later (6/14) my two best friends from high school and I wanted to have a mini get away and chose to stay at the courtyard. Everything was perfect. Parking is easy, the men and ladies at the front desk seem truley happy to help and while always wearing a smile.
We spent most of the time walking around the shops and eating (too many restaurants to choose from). The short amount of time we spent in our room was great. It was clean, quiet, and had all of the necessary ammenities. The day of check out, we enjoyed the breakfast buffet and just relaxing on the deck off of the seocnd floor. There are chairs, couches and tables there for another place to spread out wit a beautiful view of thew lake.

Room Tip: a lake view is nice and prevents you from looking in the parking garage, butyou probably aren't...

After a mix-up with reservations (4 people in room with a King bed) at the Washingtonian Center Marriott, we changed to the Courtyard in the same area (the day before our arrival date). We visit this area twice a year for shopping and dining and have stayed in various hotels. Hotel location is great! Rooms are clean and spacious! We requested a lake front room and our request was met. Front desk personnel are very helpful and friendly. We will definitely stay there from now on. If you make reservations with Marriott on line or through their 800 number, be sure to call to confirm that your accommodation request was met. If I hadn't, there would have been 4 of us sharing a King bed.

This Courtyard lives up to the "better than average" reputation that it seeks and most often gets.
The room is good/very good...spacious, clean, "nice"...really!
What makes this a "very good" Courtyard it its location in Washingtonian Center. A small community of shops, theater, stores, this Center is also located very conveniently off of the I 270. It is far enough out of Washington, D.C. to feel less rushed, is right on/near multiple hiways, including the Beltway, to be convenient to not only W., D.C., but also its surrounds, including Baltimore and Northern Virginia.
Depending on the room...and price, of course...a nice breakfast is either included or available. Made to order omelets, real egg scrambled eggs, sausages, potatoes, breakfast sweets, juice in a dining room atmosphere.
Our room was on the "lake" side (man made) and was a pleasant view. Walking path around it.
The Center is like a large, outdoor walking mall. Parking for the hotel and for most shops is covered and free.
Work out facilities

Room Tip: I'd choose a room with a "view" (the lake), and with breakfast included.
