“Great family hotel near DC”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

The sign of a great business is not that it never makes a mistake, but how it recovers from one. We had reservations for a busy holiday weekend for a suite, but upon check in, the hotel was oversold. We were put into a different room and our rate was adjusted and offered breakfast. A nice touch at check in and we were pleased with the room. This is your standard Courtyard, but its my favorite chain because there are no surprises. The room is comfortable, the lobby is nice and the restaurant is well priced. The location of the hotel was perfect, just a few blocks from the Rosslyn Metro station and there were several dining options near the hotel. Parking is a good value at $10 per day. We also like to visit Georgetown, just a couple of miles away. For families visiting the tourist sites in DC, this is an ideal property.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street may hear some street noise.

Many small touches add up to a very pleasant experience. Comfortable beds, very friendly and helpful staff, many amenities in the hotel, very reasonable rates and a super location make this a great choice when staying in the D.C. area. I loved that the windows opened, too, which is rarer than you think in hotels. After a few days, however, a few small deficiencies started to bother me just a little bit. They may seem nitpicky but I do think just a few minor improvements could make this an even better place to stay. The couch isn't particularly comfortable, and the clock in the room has a display that makes it impossible to see what time it is in the dark. When I'm in a different time zone and wake up in the middle of the night, I like to know what time it is without having to turn the light on. Also, the only toiletries provided are soap and shampoo. Lotion, but especially conditioner, seems like an essential that a Courtyard should provide. There is a small pool available, but the hours are sporadic, so if you were planning to return to the hotel after a morning of sightseeing and cool off in the pool, plan for something else. I'll end by affirming other reviewers' praise of the staff--very accommodating and professional. Friendly and helpful service is important these days, when travel can be so stressful.

Room Tip: Rooms in the front of the hotel have a better view than rooms in the back, which just look another b...

This hotel is a hidden gem and a great value. The rooms are well maintained, modern, and spacious. There on site bistro is convenient and serves a good quick meal. Being in a neighborhood is nice. The free on demand shuttle service till 10:00 pm saves $$$$$$. The 89.00 weekday and weekend rate for DC was surprising. There are plenty of restaurants and stores in walking distance. There is a car rental and dry cleaners next door. Roslyn metro center is close by. Stay here.

We chose this hotel after "passing" on a cheaper hotel that offered free parking. We just needed a safe place to stay while passing through the area. Our family of 2 adults & 2 small children had a comfortable stay in a king suite with sofa pullout sleeper. The room wasn't as spacious as we are accustomed to but it worked for an overnight stay. If planning a longer stay, we would look for something with a bit more room. Once the coffee table was moved and the pullout was set up, the sleeping area was a little confining.

Another reason we chose this hotel is because of the $10 parking fee...other area hotels charge as much as $25. A nice feature about the parking is that it is gated and is only accessible with a valid room key.

We did not have an opportunity to use the pool but did notice that it is smaller than other indoor pool areas.....better for lap swimming.

Although we did not have the time to go into DC, the hotel offers complimentary shuttle service to the nearby metro station.

Upon departure from the hotel, the front desk attendant assisted us with a map and verbal directions to the Iwo Jima monument and Arlington National Cemetery...both being very easily located from the hotel.

Wow. I have not seen customer service of this clibure too many places. I was floored by the friendliness of the staff throughout our staff from the manager to the front desk staff to the cafe and housekeeping. They knew our infany son by name and bent over backwards to ensure we had a plesant stay. Each morning, we were personally greeted by the hospitality manager and the front desk staff was always available to assist with directions, restaurant recommendations, or shuttle rides.
The location was great as it was just a few blocks from the Metro and many great restaurants yet it was set back from the hustle and bustle of the city. Our room was impeccably clean, spacious and quiet which is always a nice perk!
We will stay here each and every time we come to town from now on. It's so refreshing to stay at a place that is so homey and friendly! Marriott should be proud of this gem!

Room Tip: We opted for the suite which was so worth the upgrade with three adults and a baby!

This is a good Courtyard with reasonable rates for the area. Great location for meetings in both DC and VA side of the river. Very accommodating hotel staff and good set up. Rooms are up to date and beds are comfortable. Location is relatively quiet as well with restaurants within walking distance.

Room Tip: All rooms here are OK seeing as the area is off of major roads.

Comfortable bed, quiet room, hot shower (the basics covered). While they had free internet, they charged a bit more for the breakfast bistro than I thought was normal. Nice design for the younger hotel crowd but the fitness room was very limited. Great location for DC travelers 3 blocks from the Rosslyn metro, first stop in VA with a bit of a hill for the walk home. Parking garage was reasonably priced.
