“Nice place, pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Rooms were nice, beds were hard. Paying for parking was difficult to swallow and breakfast was not cheap, but you are in DC. (Or at least a couple of blocks away) Were in town for DC Tap Fest. This was the closest hotel (about 8 blocks away).

Thank you for comments! I’m glad you enjoyed our location and the level of service we provided. I wish we managed the parking garage and could control the parking fees but unfortunately we do not – I have to pay for parking there too so I feel your pain! However, I do know that the parking fee is the lowest of the hotels in the area, and hope it won’t be a deal breaker for you. We do have control over the breakfast pricing and selection. We try to offer a wide range of options between our restaurant menu and our lobby market. The lobby market offers a variety of items made fresh daily such as fruit cups, yogurt parfaits, granola and milk, etc. These options are priced economically to give you additional options. I hope you check out what we offer in the market during your next visit. Thanks again for your review! Amy Harris

My wife and I primarily selected this location due to its proximity to family, and while it is not much to look at from the outside the interior was wonderfully modern and comfortable. Our king room was spacious and well appointed and the bed was amazingly comfortable. Hotel parking was convenient and reasonable and there was plenty to do within easy walking distance (shopping, dining, jogging). Would definitely stay again! The only slight ding is that we like to take stairs and getting from the lobby to the 2nd floor via stairs is not easy.

Thank you for reviewing our hotel. I am happy you chose to stay with us during your visit to the area and then took the time to let us know your thoughts. We find that many guests choose our hotel because of its great location and are pleasantly surprised with our trendy decor and great amenities! I am sorry you found accessing the 2nd floor from the lobby, by stairwell, confusing. It has to do with local codes regarding stairwell exits and the fact that on the North side of the hotel the lobby is the lowest level and on the South side of the hotel the 2nd floor is the lowest level. Confusing - I know but you can access the second floor by elevator and then take the stairs up from there. Thanks again for your comments. Come back for a visit soon! Amy Harris

The nondescript building exterior hides what is actually a fresh and tasteful interior, with all the conveniences that today's traveler expects: a good breakfast place, fitness room, good internet connection in the room, modern bathroom, comfortable bed, large TV, desk, safe, and even a sofabed which was comfortable as a couch. Our room was bright, cheerful, and nicely designed, and everything worked well. We did not find it small as some reviewers have, but took the option of having only one Kingsized bed in the room. Taking the advice of another Trip Advisor reviewer, we took a high floor room which was quiet. The only negative point was, as others have mentioned, the heating/airconditioning unit which had a loud fan. This was not much of a problem since we stabilized the room temperature for sleeping before we turned in, and were not disturbed by fan noise during the night. It would have been still nicer if the shower had had more force, but there was plenty of hot water, and we would rate the shower pressure as "adequate," if not "wonderful." I also should note that there was a $26. additional fee on our bill for various taxes, which raised the price of our room to $235. per night, perhaps higher than usual because our time there coincided with spring recess for many schools. Very important for those with sensitive backs--Marriott seems to consistently have very comfortable beds in our experience.

We were visiting family in the area of the hotel, but the proximity to the Metro made the hotel fine for our touring in D.C. as well. Can recommend the restaurants Clyde's, and Meiwah, both a 5 minute walk from the hotel.

Room Tip: Be aware that there are 3 options for beds in the room. For a single or a couple, we liked the one...

What a thorough review - thank you! I am happy you enjoyed your experience here and that the hotel design, guestrooms, breakfast, and amenities were to your liking. I am sorry about the HVAC unit noise you experienced. The guest room units are part of an energy management system that not only provide cooling and heat for the rooms, but also provide fresh air intake at regular intervals. Although the fans are set on low, some of our guest do find this disturbing. If you do return to our hotel, please notify us and we will have that feature turned off during your stay. The unit fan will still cycle, but only to cool and heat the room. Likewise, the shower is "low flow" as it is part of our water conservation program and guests do find it to be less forceful but definitely acceptable as water pressure goes. If you plan on coming back to our hotel please be sure to check out our discounted rates and packages for weekend stays on our website, some of these include breakfast, metro tickets, etc. to give you additional savings on your stay!

We stayed at this Courtyard while visiting American University. The employees are very nice, rooms are clean. Breakfast was delicious, unfortunately it was not included with the room. The location is good, a couple of blocks to the metro and great shopping

Immaculate rooms, friendly staff and free coffee in the morning- perfect for a business stay. Good option of being slap bang in the middle of DC isn't a priority, but minutes from the train and a reasonable fare for a taxi.

Unlike other reviewers, I have found the Courtyard Marriot to always present an appealing boutique look since the renovation. Perhaps I have always lucked out on the nicer locations. This one was also attractively decorated. Definitely a step up from the cookie cutter box look. Here are some details for this particular location:

- In the middle of a high-end shopping district: Cartier, Tiffany's, etc.
- Surrounded by healthier food options: Panera, Whole Foods, etc.
- Offers free usage of bicycles
- A block from Friendship Heights metro station

The only complaint that I had was the heating system. There is a strange electrical pop in both the rooms I stayed. The sound is aggravating. I eventually turned off the heater, so I could get to sleep. To be honest, for that reason, I would not stay at the location again. However, others may not find the sound as annoying.

Room Tip: Stay away from the elevator to avoid the noise.

Rooms are small but comfortable. Shower is narrow and water flow extremely low. Shower door opens in...may be a safety concern. Closet is very shallow with hangers positioned at 90 degrees compared to typical. TV, work area and connections panel is great. Lots of electrical outlets well located. Good lighting. Employees are efficient, but unfortunately not customer focused. They look down at PC screens most of the time when speaking with guest. I mentioned the Hospitality Partners Company management and their heritage (which I would have expected to receive recognition...how often does a guest even know a management company) and barely received a nod. The PC-based airline boarding pass printing capability in the lobby is great, time saving, touch. I would return
