I went to D.C. at the end of June for a week of sightseeing and meeting up with old friends. Due to some scheduling issues I ended up staying the first 3 nights at the Courtyard in Rosslyn/Arlington and the last 3 nights at New Carrollton. (Strictly my choice, nothing to do with Marriott)
The first 3 nights in Arlington were great!! Excellent service, nice room, and super convenient to restaurants, grocery and Metro. I was very pleased, and a little concerned about moving so far away from the "action" that, that area provides.
My concern was completely un-founded.
Due to checkout and check-in times being 3 hours,apart, I arrived around 12:30 at New Carrollton. I was afraid of losing the whole day to this process, no worries .....they immediately checked me into my room and I was headed back to D.C. within an hour!!
Amazing kindness and courtesy from the lady at the desk. Wish I had gotten her name.
Brand New! The bed was super comfortable, and everything was spotless!
Wi-Fi (FREE), a little slow, but not a hindrance.
I was on the terrace level, which is below the main level. At first, I felt like they stuck me in the basement, but this turned out to be a perfect location. Very quiet and convenient especially if like me, you are walking everywhere. I think I walked through the lobby 2x, the whole time I was there.
The hotel backs up to a creek, swampy area, which I found quite peaceful. This is the place I would go sit with drink in hand, and have a cigarette at the end of the day. Very quiet!!!!!
The courtyard / pool area is very nice.
The location, being so far removed from everything could be considered a drawback to some. I was eating in DC everyday/night, so it wasn't an issue. The shuttle service is fast and easy to the Metro if you are to lazy to walk the .4 miles to the hotel or back.
I did give this 5 stars because of all of the above, but beware of the Lack of convenience to restaurants, and the 30 minute trip into town.
Next year, I will stay here the whole time!!!! The minor inconvenience is easy to deal with if you plan ahead. (Snacks, liquor, etc..bought before you come home for the night!)
LOVE THIS PLACE!!! I will be back!!!
