Courtyard Washington Capitol Hill/Navy Yard
Ranked #63 of 142 Hotels in Washington DC
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 11, 2013

We were here for four days with a young child. The place is brand new: very clean, nice pool, nice lounge downstairs with good breakfast options (albeit on the expensive side), extremely pleasant and helpful staff at check-in.

What made us choose this property originally was the fact that we could get a king suite for well under $200. The suite was quite large and the layout was very practical. The bedroom was completely closed off from the sitting room, so the grownups could watch TV at night without risk of waking up sleeping kids. I still cannot believe we had all that space for such little money.

The Courtyard Capitol Hill/Navy Yard is in a part of town undergoing major redevelopment: the property is surrounded by new buildings and vacant lots. As such, there isn't much to see or do around the neighbourhood (unless you're going to a Nationals game), but it has everything a family with young kids needs to enjoy their stay in DC.

The hotel is one short block away from a Metro station, and no more than 4 Metro stops from the museums and attractions around the Mall. In the building right across the street from the hotel, there is a Five Guys, a Subway and a CVS.

One block west of the hotel is a place called Justin's Cafe, which serves soups, salads, sandwiches and pizza (all excellent). It quickly became THE place for us to go have dinner after a day of sightseeing--fresh, simple food for the kids, wine and beer for mom and dad, and sports on the four TVs for the whole family.

We're already looking forward to our next trip!

We really had a great time here. We arrived early and no problem, we checked in at 12:30, rather than waiting until three. The room was exactly as promised and off we went for our day of sightseeing. After coming back to the hotel, we decided to just eat at the bistro, at the hotel. Steve waited on us and was wonderful, very attentive, very patient with my nine year old, and very personable. Room was comfy and quiet. Only complaint was no regular coffee in our room, just decaf, but only had to call the front desk to get some. Second night my daughter wanted a midnight snack (at 9:30) and we were so happy to see Steve there helping us again. He even remembered us and knew exactly what we had ordered the night before. We will most certainly come back to visit. Thanks Steve!

Room Tip: We were on 9th floor, it was very quiet. Pool and exercise room are on second floor.

We stayed here for a weekend in DC. The hotel staff were nice, the rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. The only complaint we had was from the bus load of people that left at 5 am and slammed their doors a hundred times while collecting their luggage. Great stay would definitely come back again!

We arrived by Amtrak a little early and the front desk was extremely helpful and polite. We got an early check in and were offered maps and recommendations for the area. The rate was excellent and in a wonderful location for sightseeing. There is a CVS nearby as well as a few fast food places.

The Bistro was a little expensive but the food was excellent! I highly recommend and will stay here next time I come back. The staff is very helpful and the hotel is very clean and modern. The beds were comfy and the location was convenient.

We checked in and were charged 20 dollars to park in the garage which is fine it is dc after all. So we pull into the garage after a twenty minute wait because the line was backed up because there was a woman screaming about the parking situation. We finally get through get a spot get a ticket that guarentees you a spot in the garage basically. We got ready for our dinner cruise and went to get the car no parking attendants were in the garage for a long time. They never told us we have to get out parking ticket validated. We returned Into the hotel to do that. Back to the garage and into the car. We returned from dinner at about 11 only to find a sign up saying hotel parking full. We got inside the hotel they tell us to go find somewhere to park on the street( metered). Well it's 11:30 we are driving and calling this 800 number trying to pay over the phone for parking to park on the street somewhere and the automated recording isn't understanding me telling me to do the foxtrot. I said forget this I was ready to leave the hotel completely. The double sold my parking spot and here I am driving around at midnight in dc trying to pay for parking on my cell phone. Complete nightmare. We were refunded for our parking only. I felt like they could have done better than that. Pretty rediculous.

My Daughter lives in the area and went and visited her for her Birthday. I am a Marriott Elite so I stay at Courtyards quite a bit. This by far is one of the nicest ones anywhere. Got a great rate($79 a nt) for 2 weekend nights by prepaying. Arrived DCA airport at 9pm. Cab ride from airport was $16.48 and took like 15 minutes. Dwayne greeted us and welcomed us to the Courtyard. He was awesome. Told him I prefer high room and he upgraded us to the penthouse. We were hungry and ate at the Lobby Bistro. Food and Service was excellent. Got to our room and it was incredible. Great View. Super clean. Beds were awesome. Bathroom was very big and supplied with Paul Mitchell products. From what I heard that the area used to be not so good. Now, its really nice. Within 500 feet of the hotel there is a Subway, 5 Guys, a CVS,
a liquor store,a Starbucks, an outdoor ice skating rink and the Navy/Yard rail station. During the morning you see lots of folks walking their dogs. Parking is free on the street if you can find a spot. Had a Great Time staying here and without a doubt will stay here again.

Room Tip: Book a week or 2 in advance and You will get a great rate by prepaying!! Weekends Only!

Perfectly clean and modern hotel with comfortable rooms and very helpful staff. There is a Starbucks nearby and a small 'bistro' in the foyer serving sandwiches, burgers etc and drinks. Its only open mornings at the weekend though. A 24 hr mini mart is also based in reception. Other than these places you need to travel 15 mins walk to 8th st area for restaurants and bars etc - there is not much on the doorstep. However, with Navy Yard metro literally a 2 min walk you can easily access all that Washington has to offer.
