The Courtyard Marriott Washington D.C. is built in a vintage bank building which explains the quirkiness of it's space and its character. The tiny pool and spa is built in the old bank vault. The signage on the stairwell leading from the main lobby to the lower level still indicates it leads to the safe deposit boxes.
As other reviewers have pointed out, the staff at this Marriott are amazing. Check in was a breeze and front desk couldn't have been friendlier. He even called my room after checking in to make sure every thing was okay.
I had a room on the third floor facing the street. It was small but comfortable and tastefully decorated in a non-cookie cutter style that made me think I was in a boutique hotel and not a national chain. The room was clean and well-appointed, It included a microwave, coffee maker, and small fridge. It also included free WiFi (an amazing premium in a city like D.C.). The room was quiet and the housekeeping staff were efficient and non-intrusive.
There is a separate weight room and workout room in the basement level. The workout room includes two elliptical machines and three treadmills. All are equipped with personal televisions. There is a tiny pool and spa adjacent to the workout room.
The basement also houses a bistro that serves breakfast (via menu on weekdays and buffet on weekends). My breakfast was included in the price of the room. There is a nice selection and the service was quick and friendly.
There is a Gordon Biersche Restaurant located on the property. They also provide the limited room service. I ordered dinner via room service all three nights I stayed at the hotel. Each night it was delivered within 20 minutes and the room service staff were very friendly. The food was tasty and reasonably priced (for room service). Tip: Call the front desk to connect you with room service. For some reason the room service number provided in the room doesn't work and just gives you a busy signal.
I can't say enough about the location. The hotel is about a block from the Gallery Metro Stop so it was just a 15 minute train ride from Reagan National Airport and it only cost $3! The hotel is also less than a block from the National Portrait Gallery. The hotel is also within an easy walk to all of Washington D.C.'s attractions.
I highly recommend the Courtyard Marriott Washington D.C. Convention Center to business travelers and visitors alike. It offers great value and a great location without sacrificing style or comfort.
