“Great Place To Stay, What A Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

I just got back from a four day stay at the Courtyard by Marriott\US Capitol. At first I was worried after reading some reviews, but this place was awesome! Everyone was very friendly. The room were clean. The bed (especially the pillows) were extremely comfortable. This hotel is just a few feet from DC Metro. By all means use the Metro to get around DC. The Metro runs behind the hotel, our room overlooked the tracks, but you do not hear or feel the train go by! I would most definitely stay here again.

We stayed here 2 nights as a family vacation. We found that it met our needs for a place to sleep and keep our things but found the location hard to get to.

Pros: It is located right next to a metro light rail station that services everything in DC. Was very easy to get around once you're there. Rooms were very nice. Comfortable beds. Nice choices for eating options in and around the hotel.

Cons: They have check-in on the 2nd floor which means having to lug all of your luggage with you. Not sure if this is because of the security built in because of the neighborhood it's in or because of the space they have. Staff was kind of indifferent to us. Not really welcomed.

Never being to DC before the hotel staff was very helpful.

Pros: right next to the metro. Room key to get to floors above 2nd & in front after 10. Pool. Valet parking(secure under). Resturants in walking distance. Comfy bed
Cons: not a great view. Construction. Limited parking. $33 for valet over night. Not in walking distance to DC attractions. Small, but works.

**beware of construction on the roads (but could not hear it in the room)
**get all day pass for metro. Ask the guards they will help you!

We had a great experience at the Courtyard Marriott Washington, DC/U.S. Capitol. The rooms were large, clean and nicely appointed. Similarly, the staff was professional and very accommodating. There are computers and printers available for travelers who need to print out boarding passes, etc. Next to the hotel is a 7-11, which is nice if you want to buy a few snacks for the room at night or to grab a quick breakfast on-the-go in the morning. The parking was expensive ($33 a night for valet parking), but the cars were kept in a nice secure area and the parking staff was efficient and responsive to our needs. The price for our room was well-below a lot of the other DC hotels and we were very happy with our experience at this hotel.

I stayed here on a business trip to attend a show at the Convention Center. It was a vey nice hotel, clean and a great staff. My room was comfortable and really nicely decorated. The desk was good sized and made it a great work area. The bar area was large with nice lounge areas with plenty of televisions. The food menu had lots of choices and the food was well portioned. Two of us ate there both nights with no complaints. There is a lot of construction around the area so be prepared for some detours if diving. The weather was nice so we walked to the convention center which took about 30 minutes. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

to begin with the hotel was rather hard to get into with limited parking for hotel guests out the front to unload and hand over to te valet.The street is extreamly narow and really shuld be one way but isnt. also the hotel only offers valet parking so you have to go down there. the hotel shares lifts and ground floor with some form of a hospital located on the other side of the building so the lobby is located on the second floor. the room itself was clean and nice with a comfy bed was a bit small but was fine. in order to get onto any guest floor you require a room key which is good because the few times i did go outside at night there were a few dodgy people around asking for money ect (there is also a security guard on duty 24 hrs which is good) there is a 7/11 located below the hotel which is super convienient also the metro station is only about 200mts from the hotel which is convienient altough trying to work out what sort of ticket to buy is complicated (we ended up catching a taxi lol) the hotel is also not close to any of the DC tourist attractions so dont expect to walk. for the price the hotel was good value but i would concider staying somewhere else just for convienience

Greetings from the Courtyard Washington DC/US Capitol. I see that you stayed with us quite some time ago. As I review our older reviews, I see that we still owe you a response. My apologies for the significant delay. I am the new General Manager and I am reviewing all Trip Advisor reviews – especially past reviews from a time before the hotel was able to really shine. While your view was very positive (thank you!), we have grown even further. I am completely impressed by our team and our neighborhood. I would like to recommend coming back and trying our hotel again! Yes - it's been a while, and I am new to this hotel, but your travel experience is still important to me!

We have many amazing amenities, new associates and leaders – and a completely transformed neighborhood that is bound to surprise you. If you have a chance to travel back to our area, we would love a chance to connect with you once again.

Thank you for staying with Marriott

General Manager

Stayed for 2 nights last week. Odd hotel, you check in on the 2nd floor, and later need your room key to get past the 2nd floor or come down from your room. Typical Marriott room, 711 next store, deli and 5 guys burgers across the street. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Expensive parking but this is DC. Another traveler told me the happy hour beer is almost $7, wonder what it is when it isn't on special. lol
