“Good value, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Great hotel if you are looking for a good value, close to DC sites, the metro and Ford's Theater. There are several nice places to eat nearby. I agree with some of the other comments about the remodel job being cheaply done but I don't spend a lot of time in the hallways or reception. The rooms are comfortable & clean. I did find the rooms to be a bit noisy as I could hear whenever someone would run water or shower.

The staff was excellent, super friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

The Marriott Courtyard is located in a convenient location for a variety of business meetings and is in close proximity to the convention center. The entrance to the hotel does not feel like a hotel at all, it still has a feeling of a bank. At first it is confusing as to where to go to register and most of the finishes of the entryway feel cold, not very warm and inviting. The rooms are comfortable and sizable. The corridors floors appear to have been poorly rebuilt using plywood and carpet because they creak and are bouncy. It is not a pleasant experience. The breakfast area is in the basement and is poorly designed with a very limited menu. The old bank vault door is on display to further explain that this was once a bank, as if it was not evident. It is a poor adaptive reuse that could have been handled much better given the original elegance of the building. The good news was that the rack rate was reasonable.

Room Tip: Room with a street view.

The hotel was neat, architectually, but other than that very average. Okay service. They only had 2 working elevators out of floor. The breakfast room is in the basement with no window and not a lot of light or tables. The rooms are the same as most typical Courtyard, nothing fancy. Great location though...

This is across the street from the Metro which makes it convenient. The rooms are small but this is DC. There is not a lot of work space so it isn't a great business choice but it's comfortable otherwise. It was quiet which is the key issue for me.

There is a decent restaurant attached. The staff were helpful

the morning breakfast is not a comp - but it's decent.

It is not a luxury hotel but is very good for your price of 110 dollar per night.the rooms is like 4 star hotels.very clean and big enough .very good location within 5 min walk to metro station and 5-10 min walk to attractions(the Hall with all the museums,white house,capitol and manuments).very friendly staff.they let us have an early check in at 12 pm instead of 3 pm.They provide us a free baby crab.The streets nearby are full of resturants and also Zara and H&M for shopping.it has pool and fitness center but I did not use it.If you do not want to pay for breakfast you can have it in the very close Mc Donald in the 7th street within 5 min walk but that Mc Donald has many homeless men and I do not recomment for family.
The negative point is the nearby streets at night.you should know that this hotel and all the museums and white house are in downtown.there are many homeless men in the nearby streets.I do not recomment wallking after 10 p.m.
Overally,if you do not have a car and want to be within walking distance to all attractions,it is perfect for you.But if you have a car or you do not mind to pay for taxi and you need a safe and live amenity for night life,,it is not suitable for you and I recomment take hotel in George Town or Dupont circle.

Room Tip: Our room had no view to the outside with only walls ahead!

There are lots of restaurants nearby. The one located very near is Zaytinya which is very good. Gallery Place metro station is half yard away. You can see lot of people around because of Verizon centre (basketball/concerts etc) and Regal cinemas.

The hotel itself is pretty neat. Friendly staff. Ask for a room with a street view to have a better feel in the morning. The bed is very comfortable. The room I got had a microwave and a small refrigirator. Very nicely maintained bathroom. You get free USA Today paper in the lobby.

Room Tip: Room on upper floor (8th), facing street.

We stayed here over Thanksgiving break and couldn't have had a better time. The hotel has a couple of metro stops nearby, one just a block away. There are great restaurants and things to do close by---Jaleo, Zaytina, Spy Museum, Portrait Gallery to name a few. The pool is pretty small but my kids had a great time and loved that the hotel provided a ton of pool toys. The fitness center is surprisingly good for an old hotel as well. Service was great and the rooms were clean. The concierge desk was always helpful with directions and questions. We will definitely stay there again!
