top to bottom, fantastic hotel. Great value, great location, wonderful restaurant in the lobby, and one of the most courteous, friendly staff we've had in the last year of business travel. They were truly wonderful. I almost never post to TripAdvisor but I couldn't let the opportunity pass to compliment this exceptional hotel.

My husband recently had surgey at Medstar Wash. Hosp. Center. We live 2 1/2 hr. drive away,so we decided to stay in DC. This hotel was on the hospital website as a place where we could get the complimentary hospital shuttle. That way we could park our car and leave it until we were ready to go home. They have a secure parking garage.

From the moment we arrived at the door we were treated like family. The valet, RC, Felicia, Luisa, Luis at the front desk, and Lorraine were so helpful and kind.. RC bought us a fridge, and a microwave to our room, and Lorraine brought us warm homemade cookies to our room one evening. They all knew my husband was in the hospital and they inquired how he was doing everyday, RC even called our room to ask..Even houskeeping were top notch. My daughter returned to the room one day to get our coats out of the closet while the housekeeper was in the room. She asked my daughter if she would please swipe her room card for security purposes. I've never stayed anywhere where the staff were so gracious and kind. This hotel was just where we needed to be.

It's within walking distance to the White House, the Mall, Georgetown, DuPont Circle etc. We didn't have time for site seeing, but we did walk to the White House one morning, and DuPont Circle one day.

The restaurant in the hotel, "Nage" was where we ate breakfast, and lunch most of the time, but there are lots of other place within walking distance, if you'd like to dine off the hotel property.

My daughter and I can't say enough good things about this place. We highly recommend it !!!!!

I've stayed here three times now. Good location, very friendly staff, from the front desk to the doormen. Nice, clean rooms. Rates are reasonable and are a good value compared to what is charged by other hotels in this city.

Stayed at this Courtyard for a wedding and found it to be an acceptable choice. Staff was friendly and helpful and the lobby is inviting. The rooms;however,while clean, were showing there age and the bed pales in comparison to what the Sheraton chain has started using. The hotel restaurant refers to Starbucks coffee but if you let it get lukewarm in the carafe at breakfast, it's still not tasty. I will say the eggs Benedict with crabcakes was terrific but with a limited menu everything should be available and there was no gravlox when ordered. Well situated if you need to be in this section of the NW, but there may be better choices in the area.

Had to make a quick run down to Washington DC for a meeting near Dupont Circle. Chose this hotel. Good location, the hotel was very clean, staff was wonderfully helpful and friendly. Wish the room was a little bit bigger but it was fine. Nice restaurant attached to the hotel.

I've stayed here 3 or 4 times mostly due to it being 2 blocks from a client. Staff at check-in and anytime you enter/exit the hotel are quite friendly. The one time I did have an issue (thermostat stuck on 80) it was resolved promptly.

I want to really like this hotel, but the lobby is the nicest part. The rooms could use some sprucing up. The desk/tv are pretty standard (and decent) Courtyard issue. The light above the vanity are ancient fluorescent jobs that aren't flattering and don't provide all that much light. The room safe won't hold a MacBook Pro 15" easily (they may, I gave up not wanting to sign and dent the laptop). Wireless is free, and you get what you pay for there -- it's pretty under-provisioned any trying to watch any sort of video (even short clips) can be an exercise in frustration.

Have eaten at Nage, the attached restaurant for lunch and evening drinks/dessert. Lunch was pretty good. The time I went for dessert there was a smell of burnt seafood throughout the place.

It's a decent Courtyard, and with some minor room tweaks could be a really good one.

There was nothing like being welcomed by Tiara Thompson when we walked into the lobby. Even thought it had been a few months since we last stayed, she remembered our faces and greeted us like old friends.
