“Good Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Stayed here in August 2013 as first part of our road trip around Washington/ Virginia. Metro is 5min walk away and about 45min in to downtown DC, rooms were very nice, bed was comfortable and all the staff we met were very pleasant. I would stay here again if we go back to DC

I went there to have a look as my friends are coming on 10/14/13 to visit me and they asked me to make reservation for them. It is very nice. I like it a lot. So I made reservation there for my friends. It is just next to the metro station. So convenient.

I really enjoyed spending a long weekend here while visiting in the area. Since I was dividing my time between downtown DC and hanging out with friends in Fairfax, this was the perfect choice since the Metro station is only a short walk up the block and Fairfax is just a few minutes drive away. It's a nicely designed hotel, clean and updated. The entire staff is very friendly yet professional, my room was comfortable & well taken care of by housekeeping throughout my stay and breakfast was freshly prepared and tasty. Dinner selections are limited but the service is friendly and happy hour prices at the bar are nice. I also appreciated parking in the secure garage under the hotel. The business center is well appointed with multiple computers and there is a separate dedicated station just for printing boarding passes. I'll definitely stay again.

Very clean and efficiently run hotel, cordial front desk staff, 1 block walk to the Dunn Loring Metro stop that can take you almost anywhere you want to go in DC. Shopping and restaurants within walking distance and they're building more. The room was very clean, quiet and if you book 14 or more days in advance a two-night weekend stay is only $71/night. Free parking in a secure underground garage. I really enjoyed my stay there.

Room Tip: I enjoy rooms on the higher floors. So far they've been very quiet and peaceful.

I ended up here on a last-minute business trip to Tysons Corner, where the TC Courtyard was already sold out. It's only about 5 miles away from Tysons Corner, so with a car I wasn't too inconvenienced. I was surprised - this is the first Courtyard Marriott stay where there was actually a restaurant. I arrived at 9:30 p.m., and not having eaten since breakfast, was really happy to learn that their cafe was still open (until 10:00 p.m.). They don't have room service, but you can call in your order then pick up to take to your room. The accommodations were comfortable - nicely updated contemporary decor with a large flat-screen tv. The only negative is that there was an adjoining room door which made for paper-thin walls. Could hear the guy next door snoring and coughing throughout the night. I would definitely recommend you ask for a room that does not have an adjoining room to avoid this problem. Otherwise, place was really clean, staff were all very nice, and the food at the cafe was actually excellent! Certainly a place that welcomes business travelers.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room without an adjoining room - avoid the sleep-disturbing noise from your...

It's great to hear you enjoyed the Bistro while you were here. I am surprised to hear you have not seen this at other Courtyards, almost all Courtyards have rolled out this new dining concept. I'm sorry to hear that you could hear your neighbor. We will check to doors to make sure they are closing properly so you won't hear the neighbors. Thank you again for the review.

Stayed for a week on business. King Room was spacious. Bed was not horrible but not wire as comfy As I like. Whole hotel was clean and modern. Bistro was prompt, food was good even the burger. They even had Starbucks coffee and several booths with tvs. Nice area outside of your room to relax. Duncan donuts and a couple if restaurants are right next door. Plus free parking garage under the hotel

I could not find anything negative to say about this Hotel. The easy walk to the metro was the selling point for us but there is so much more. The room was clean and comfortable, The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. We were extremely pleased by the price. The surrounding area was so nice to walk around and we found some very nice restaurants to enjoy a meal. Thank you to the management and staff, you will be seeing us again.
