The hotel is perfectly! Located a few minute from almost every Washington hotspot like White House, Second War Memorial. The hotel is brand new, free wifi, great staff. Tip: crossing the street there is a bicycle station and a daily rental is 7 usd, i've rented one and spent one day ciclying around everything!

The hotel was situated perfectly for easy Metro access. Nearby convenience store & restaurant for food. Hotel staff was very kind & helpful plus valet parking & proximity to getting in/out of DC was a breeze.

Hotel, location and staff were great. Not many places to eat nearby though. Five Guys Burgers is across the street and 7-11 is next to the hotel. Location is very convenient to the metro Red Line. The area around the hotel is quiet at night.

The Courtyard by Marriott Washington, DC / U.S. Capitol name implies that the hotel is close to the U.S. Capitol. Well, not quite - if you plan to walk, it is quite a bit of distance from the hotel to the U.S. Capitol.

Thank you for the review. I am sorry if the name of our hotel led you to believe we were closer to the Capitol.

I travel quite a bit and I've stayed in the 5-star hotels and the 2-star hotels and many in between. (I have passed that point in my adult life where I'll give Super 8s a chance.) I typically gravitate toward Marriotts, Sheratons, Westins and the like. And honestly, I'm one of those Priceline low-bidders over and over again until I... More

I enjoyed the brief stay at the Courtyard. The room was very comfortable and just perfect for my needs. The internet connection was great as well. The front desk was effective and efficient. Would like to mention as well the superb service from the Restaurant staff - Betel ensured we were well looked after.

Well kept Marriott hotel within a block of the Metro station makes it real convenient to get around D.C. That being said, it is also a block from the Metro station and there is little to do there at night and you can expect to see transients after dark.

The only good thing about this hotel was the location. I stayed for a week on business. The room wasn't cleaned TWICE (and thus the tip, which was left for the maid service, wasn't received-- which is ironic since Marriott, according to a recent news article, is pushing for customers to tip -- perhaps it should push its staff to...
