Stay at this hotel for a week long vacation in the DC area. I was looking for a Marriott hotel to use rewards points on that had two queen beds and was near a Metro station. The Courtyard in Rosslyn fit the bill.
The room was just renovated and was decorated nice. We were on the 9th floor and they were working their way down. We could smell the new carpet upon arrival. The room had enough space for our family of four, but it didn't have enough room for our clothing. Closet and drawer space was tight, but we made it work and it wasn't much of a problem after our initial organization. Having the sink area outside the bathroom was very nice.
Staff was very nice and accommodating . We were greeted each time we saw someone in the morning or when we returned in the late afternoon / evening. If we needed a ride or pick up from the Metro station, they were there in a flash to take us or pick us up. The pool was small and had late afternoon/evening hours during the week (longer on the weekends). A lifeguard was on duty during pool hours.
The walk to the Metro was a quick downhill walk. The walk back to the hotel uphill after a long day of touring DC was a bit taxing at times. It was still manageable.
There was plenty to eat in the surrounding area. We found plenty to eat by just walking around the corner (bbq, mexican). If you chose to venture up the orange line to the Clarendon station, you can definately find a ton of restaurants to meet your needs w/o going into DC. We saw several italian restaurants, Cheesecake Factory, but found a gem in the Hard Times Cafe. Chili Mac to die for. For breakfast, you can chose to eat at the expensive hotel restaurant (where you can eat the food that you can get at a Hampton or Residence Inn for free). For a quick breakfast, there is a Cosi near the Metro.
Free internet in the rooms was a nice plus too.
