“great staff and location”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

This is a great property with a great staff. There is very little turnover in staff and they always remember you from the last visit, Stephanie is very kind and professional and always works to make my stay a good one. The pool is very clean and they keep it at around 85 degrees and great place to relax. I often dine in the bistro and watch tv in one of the booths. The food is always fresh and made to order. As a frequent traveler I would recommend this property for business or pleasure.

Room Tip: upper floor rooms overlooking DC

Green Features: they recycle and encourage guest to do so also. I have my linen changed every other day

I'm not usually one to make lists like this, but this particular stay screamed for it.

Let's see... Check in went okay at first but I was literally switched to a different agent midway through to hear about their lack of complimentary breakfast (which I knew). The previous agent just walked away to help someone else. Perhaps it was my letting them know that the person I was traveling with - from the same company, mind you - was not able to make it and if they hadn't been contacted they could go ahead and free up the reserved room. Well, apparently they take issue with that. They explained that the person (who didn't even make their own reservation) would need to call them directly. When I said my coworker had encountered an emergency, which is why they couldn't make the trip, they basically said "tough, we need a call or we're billing the full rate".

So on to the room: The tub dripped non-stop; the bed was all springs and very uncomfortable; the red walls had chipped paint; and forget that the TV on-screen guide says you can watch Showtime - that channel reverts to Bio. The icing on the cake had to do with the bathroom amenities. I've unwrapped better bars of soap at $30/night motels. Like plastic. That, and they only provided little bottles of conditioner. No shampoo. I called down and was told someone would be right up. Guess again. I called again 20 minutes later and they acted I'd never called before. No big deal - I can be late to that meeting.

Anything good, you ask? The little diner counter they have downstairs was staffed by two very nice gentlemen. The food, being light bar food, was only so-so but the service was great. So there.

Room Tip: If you stay on the side facing the highway, know that you need to run the fan on high to drown out t...

Stayed here a week ago with a group that had 28 rooms. The staff was very nice and helpful, rooms were blocked perfectly, and the breakfast each morning was wonderful. The pool was large and nicely laid out, great place to relax and swim. Would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a nice place to stay near Washington D.C. Perfect in every way.

I do alot of work related travel, and stay in alot of Hotels. This Hotel is outstanding from the moment you walk in the door to check in to the moment you walk out after check out. The
staff has the highest quality of guest service I have ever seen. You feel more like Family then guests. The Manager Keith is always seen and available. I want to give a special thank you to Stephanie for her skills and help, to Edna for her patience, to Greg for his directional skills.
Thank you all for making my work travel a little less work and a little more fun.

Room Tip: I like the lay out of rooms ending in 03 (203, 303,40, etc), they are at the end of the halls near t...

I would like to thank Keith, Stephanie and Edna for all that they do! They should write a book on customer service!!! They have a great breakfast and the best pool in the DC area! Thanks Courtyard for making our stay fantastic!

We just returned from a weekend in DC with family and had a wonderful stay at the Courtyard. The hotel had a great location and the shuttle got us to the Metro very easily. The staff was very nice, especially a front desk clerk by the name of Stephanie who went out of her way to make our stay perfect. She is a great asset to a hotel we will return to in the future!

This hotel was top notch. The bed, TV, room size, and bathroom facilities were all what you would expect from a $200 a night hotel (which is what it cost). Included iron board and iron that worked great, thermostat, largish LCD TV, and wireless internet (more on that below). The staff was friendly and professional and the lobby was comfortable w/ free coffee, etc. They had a small store in the lobby that had most everything you could need (there's also a small strip mall within easy walking distance). The restaurant was also good, though note that it doesn't have a 'full' menu, it's more of smaller operation. Their breakfast buffer was OK. They also have a free shuttle to the Pentagon City metro that runs till 10:30 pm. Pool was closed for winter. They have a small work out room that was adequate.

Although very nice, some areas that could have been better were

- wireless internet: bandwidth slowed to a crawl by about 8pm, hourglassing sometimes for up to 5 minutes.
- no refrigerator in room (I didn't need one)
- not a full-menu type of restaurant
- parking was $19 a night, which seemed steep. No easy street parking.

Room Tip: Hard to find the hotel (VA roads are terrible): make sure you get and follow their directions very c...
