“Clean and convenient to metro!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

Perfect for our family of 4 for a weekend getaway. Indoor pool was clean and staffed with a lifeguard. Breakfast was perfect and included in our stay. Brought to our table quickly. 5 minute walk to metro. 28 min commute to museums on metro. Highly recommend this hotel. We will be back!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

This is an "inner city" courtyard...around 10 years old. This is almost as good as a Courtyard Marriott's get these days..above average bathroom, upgraded shampoo, professional staff in bistro and at front desk. overall the hotel is in a very good condition...

A few negatives...you can find them at all Courtyards...
- they offer free breakfast at the Bistro...it is more like an intelligence test to find out what isfree and what not...regular juice is free, naked not; regular coffe is free.. cappuccino not...
- gymn are is small and always full at peak times; equipment needs update
- pool too small for adults
- room heatpump is noisy ( A/C or Heater )
- bedding and mattress is never as nice as the ones at the Hilton's

These are pretty much the standard complaints at all Courtyards Marriotts. They were definitely less annoying at this property and therefore the 4 stars..

My wife and I stayed at the Courtyard/Dunn Loring for a long weekend in Washington,DC. It was great-the room was very large and very clean and the front desk employees were very nice. The hotel had a little parking outside but it had an underground parking garage. It was also nice that the Metro subway station was a block away and took us right down to the Smithsonian. No need to fight the traffic. There were a few restaurants right next door to the hotel-very convienant and also they had a small restaurant in the hotel and a large sitting area with a few big screen tv's. Very nice stay!!!

We were looking to get away from the routing for one night. We grabbed this hotel on priceline for a great price. I expected it would be ok, but nothing special. When we arrived hotel was clean staff wass extremely nice. Once in the room I absolutely loved it! Very spaciousm, clean, and the balcony was definitely a plus. This is one of the most comfortable beds ever I wnated to take it home with me! I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for great value! Only thing I would not recommend is their bar. Not a great selection and the food is not very tasty. There is a restaurant across the hotel "blackfinn" I would suggest you walk those extra steps and skip this hotels bar/ restaurant. Overall a great experience!

Room Tip: Defintiely ask for a balcony! Skip their bar/restaurant

I was lost this Saturday after driving 12 hours cross country. Trying to find a hotel with a room. The phone was picked up by a lady called Elise and can I say because of her I will never stay at another Marriot property. Not only was she rude she refused to direct me to the property. Sorry Marriot. Please train your employees. Very bad experience!

I’m sorry to hear of your dissatisfaction with our staff on your recent call to us. Our staff is very well trained on directions in the immediate local area and has access to the internet to aid them when needed. It can become difficult to guide guests to us who are lost and can’t give us an accurate description of where they are located. We have shared your comments with our staff members so that they may continue to improve in situations like this.

Dunn Loring isn't the sexiest neighborhood in the greater DC area so I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. It is modern and spotless with all the small things that make a huge difference for business travel - outlets in the lamps, mini-fridge, fast and reliable wi-fi, a kitchen/bar area with hot meals at weird hours, and free parking below the hotel. I can't tell you how rare it is to find free and convenient parking in the DC area. Also you are steps from the Dunn Loring Metro stop, and Target plus every possible eatery is within a 5 minute drive or walking distance. Everything was clean and the staff were very nice - an even rarer commodity in our nation's capitol.

Great check-in experience. Heather looked up my Marriott membership, asked my room preferences, and proceeded to give me a great room! This is one reason i always try to stay at Marriott when I travel for business,
