4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014

The first reason to stay here is location. Walking distance from metro, one block from Discovery Center, in part of the downtown Silver Spring mall area. Multiple parking garages for $13 a day. Rooms were comfortable, staff was helpful, and the in hotel food service good for a quick lunch or breakfast. The fitness center is the local gym with everything you could want. The small courtyard was pleasant. Would stay there again in the need arose.

This is an update Courtyard hotel and the hotel looks/feels very much like other recently updated Courtyard hotels. I stayed here because I could not find a reasonable rate in DC (Microsoft convention week). I liked how close it is to the metro, which provided an easy ride into the city. Staff were friendly, the room was clean and ample in size, and there are lots of food options nearby. I would consider staying again here.

This is the best place to stay in Silver Spring by far. Great staff and very nice rooms. The management does a great job setting the expectation because every time I stay here, regardless of who is working I am treated and greeted the same way. I love the location and the parking garage is super convenient. If I have to stay in Silver Spring there is no question where I will spend the night. Highly recommended!

Very nice and clean Hotel. It is outside of D.C. but the Metro (subway) takes you right to downtown D.C. Room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. Staff was very nice and TV service was good. There is a nice little patio on the lobby floor. It is kind of weird being on top of a Washington Sports club. I like how the parking garage is right next to the hotel. But be warned, everything in the hotel is expensive.

Room Tip: You need your key to use the elevator

I stayed here on business and was pleasantly surprised that it was easy walking distance to a lot of shopping and restaurants. I also stopped by Ben and Jerry's for a core sundae (yum)!

The room is like at other Courtyards.

I was very appreciative of the breakfast. It takes awhile as they do it all made to order, but I had the bacon and scrambled eggs with a cup of strawberries and it was excellent. Much better than a tired breakfast buffet, and you only spend about $10 or less. They also have oatmeal, pancakes, cold cereal, muffins, etc.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I appreciate your comments and next time your in Silver Spring, there is also a Coldstone Creamery a half a block away from Ben & Jerry's and throughout the summer there are tons of activities, music and events in the downtown area which as you know is walking distance from the hotel. We look forward to our next opportunity to serve you.

This Courtyard met the expectations; pleasant lobby, quick check in, bistro with light meals available, printer for boarding passes, and a courtyard. The rooms were comfortable, clean, and included work area with plug-ins and free wi fi. The walls were a bit thin so that one can hear some noise from other rooms, but not bad.
While this is an urban location, the hotel is adjacent to a parking deck, with a walkway directly from the deck to the lobby, which is on the 3rd floor of the hotel. On the weekends this deck is free, so that made parking for us, here on a Saturday to Sunday, very easy.
The location is excellent. A few blocks away is the metro for an easy ride to D.C. One block away is "downtown Silver Spring" which at least on Saturday had the street closed to cars, and in this area are numerous restaurants, stores, courtyard with benches, and while we were there, music.
