The place was clean and well-managed but the pillows and sheets were quite tired for 400 a night - would never stay here on my own dime. There was a population of seemed like ex homeless families here too, big mornign rush on the elevators getting their kids to school. A lot of panhandling out front. Trying hard but something...

It's not easy to express an opinion about this hotel, as there a mix of pros and cons: Pros: - nice and large rooms BUT the hotel doesn't give you the idea of being a 100% a "safe place". Considering the majority of the other customers this hotel seemed more like a residence for local families. At the entrance and... More

What a Jewel this was! Could not have had a better location for our needs. Red Line Metro Station is 75 yards from the entrance of the hotel.. Union Market is 5 blocks away and a easy walk. Food and drink are also close. Staff at the front desk were so friendly and helpful. Nice lounge with several TV's so... More

Clean, comfortable and relatively spacious room in a hotel right on the red line and very convenient for all the sights of Washington DC and a laundry room which was very welcome. On the flip side, the bar isn't great - rather expensive with limited choice (but with things like the Penn Quarter Sports Tavern just down the red line... More

Recently our large family and friends stayed at the Courtyard Marriott Capitol Hill. The hotel was chosen by the wedding party because of its location near the wedding reception. Though there is not much to do near the hotel, the Red Line of the Metro system is practically adjacent to the hotel. We used it for everything: sightseeing, going out... More

This is a standard Courtyard hotel enhanced by exceptionally friendly, customer-oriented staff. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are clean, well-maintained and updated. The hotel is located in a gentrifying neighbourhood without many restaurants, entertainment or attractions within walking distance. However, the NoMa metro stop is less than a minute walk from the hotel, from which you can... More

First off, the listing for this hotel is misleading and omits expensive and important information. There is no free breakfast included and the cafe on the main floor is expensive. Second, add $50 a night to the room charge for parking. There is no free parking and the hotel extorts $50 from its guests every night. Had I known this... More

This hotel is located adjacent to a metro line offering easy access to Union Station and the sites around the National Mall. Our room was adequate. We could see the train line from our room, but double-glazing prevented any significant noise. The onsite restaurant offered good food at reasonable prices, though on a couple of occasions the service was a... More

The hotel is right on the Metro line and convenient to downtown, the US Capital , Union Station and the Baltimore Washington Parkway. The staff is extremely helpful and courteous. The bar and eating area was great with a good happy hour and a business center adjacent to it. I will definitely stay here again!!!
