“Convenience in DC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Consider staying at the Rosslyn Courtyard when in Washington DC. It is on the Virginia side of the Potomac but a quick Metro ride from all the major attractions. This is the standard Courtyard drill that Marriott has perfected; comfortable, functional rooms; lobby restaurant with affordable quick meals and lots of TV screens in the lobby for the latest news, etc.

The Rosslyn Metro station is a five block walk. There are several chain restaurants and two Starbuck's within easy walking distance. A walk up Clarendon Boulevard to the courthouse district makes more restaurants available and an 8 screen movie theater (AMC Courthouse Plaza 8). You can also Metro from Rosslyn to the Courthouse stop on the Orange line.

You can continue on Clarendon to the Clarendon neighborhood which has more great restaurants and shopping, including the Clarendon Market Commons. Also available via the Orange Metro line.

Also within walking distance is the US Marine Corps Memorial, walk north on Clarendon to Ft Meyer Drive and then east. You can't miss it. Continue a short distance and you will be at the Netherlands Carillion and one of the best views of Washington. Directly east, is the western edge of Arlington National Cemetery. You can walk through the gate and stroll the grounds.

Unless I have to absolutely have to stay downtown or in Pentagon City, the Rosslyn Courtyard serves me well.

Courtyard Marriott is about as easy and convenient as you can get in Northern Virginia, and a great rate. The staff was very friendly and the rooms very nice -- a little small, but better than other hotels its age. We were in the DC area for a wedding and this was where everyone else stayed. The lobby's size and furnishing made it a very convenient place to meet up. My only criticism is that breakfast wasn't included in the rate as it is in many other area hotels at this price point. That said, the breakfast menu was excellent and not over-priced, and the staff was great.

I checked trip advisor as I always do before any of my trips and the reviews of this hotel was totally accurate. Service good, hotel clean, location good, my pre-teens liked the pool. Only negative rooms are small. Thanks again trip advisor!

Well many of you know how it is when you go to a nice hotel and find everything as reviewed sometimes even better but then the water pressure in the shower is a weak wimper...well not here! Wow this was wonderful surprise, powerful, no leaking shower head that cant be adjusted........5 stars for the water pressure and shower head here! Enjoy

Just got back from our first trip to DC. Stayed at the Courtyard in Arlington. Great location for us! First, it was a quick trip from Reagan airport. Next, we saved money by staying on the "other side of the river." Thirdly, it was a few minutes walk to the Metro station with a Starbucks on the way. And, the hotel is just around the corner from some great restaurants.
The hotel itself is what we expect from a Courtyard - clean, comfortable, and friendly. The room was nice and modern and the bed and pillows comfortable. The lobby has a fireplace, TV, and current reading materials. There is a "quick bite to eat" place there, but we never ate there. Our best example of great service while we were there is the following. We asked for a taxi to be scheduled for us at a certain time to get to a theater - which it was. After the taxi being 15 minutes late and called a couple of times, one of the cute guest services ladies at the front desk ran out into the freezing cold and hailed a taxi from the curb for us. What service! Everyone there was more than helpful, informed and super friendly. Stay here for sure!

We are big fan of Marriott and we chose this hotel because it was close to the metro station and not too expensive.
the hotel was welcoming and comfortable, the personnel was kind and helpful and the room, although small was comfortable and clean.
the metro station close by was great, you can go anywhere and it only takes few minutes walking from the hotel.
