Reviewed 21 August 2013

This hotel was a delightful surprise. I went there for a “staycation”, a weekend away from the details of my regular life in nearby Silver Spring, Maryland. It was the perfect location! I chose the hotel because it’s off the beaten path. It’s tucked away at the end of a street. Still it's within minutes of restaurants, movie theaters and shopping. And there are several centers of business nearby.

The rooms are nicely appointed with warm, contemporary decor. You can request a room with a fridge. And not the kind that house excessively expensive snacks and charges you every time you open it! Just a place to store beverages and light snacks so you don't have to get dressed and go out every time your tummy rumbles.

The grounds are lovely. Lots of flowers on he exterior as well as the interior courtyard along with a nice walking path. There is comfy seating on a patio outside for enjoying pleasant weather. There is also an area with chaise lounges on the outside deck of the indoor pool for summer sunning.

The indoor pool is a nice size. Long enough for doing short laps and deep enough for water aerobic exercise.

The fitness center is nicely appointed and overlooks the pool through a window. So, you don’t have that trapped feeling as in some hotel workout rooms.

Staff is friendly and attentive. From the front desk to the bistro to housekeeping, every question and desire was addressed promptly and with kindness.

This is a perfect destination for business or relaxation.

The hotel is very decent and quiet hotel that is good for the family. We were not disappointed. You also have value for money. The facilities are in good shape. It gives a very good image for Marriott.

Room Tip: They have room that can be connected. Please note that those on the last floor do not have refrigera...

In this trip we stayed in 3 different Courtyards in Virginia and MD. This one was the most spacious, with living room and a very spacious bedroom with 2 queen beds. 2 TVs. 1 bar.
The suite is totally newly renovated. It also has balcony.

Our youngest kid liked it so much that requested us to stay one more night. The pool is new, it is illuminated at night from underneath. The gym is very small.

It is conveniently located 25 minutes from Baltimore, with many fast food and restaurants closeby.

The water in the room is charged, each bottle $5.
No breakfast at morning.
Yes coffee machine and different coffes to make. No tea bags.
No microwave.

Hello OrquidLady! Thank you for your loyalty to Courtyard by Marriott! Sounds like you had a Great trip and maybe we have created another loyal member in your kid... =) If ever back at our hotel or other Courtyards, please feel free to utilize our complimentary microwave in the lobby near the front desk and try out one of our wonderful Tazo teas... I'm sure you would enjoy (my favorite is zen). Hope to see you again soon and share my best with the family!

The rooms were clean, the staff very helpful and friendly, but NO FREE Breakfast of any kind. Many other Hotels in the area offered a FULL FREE Breakfast and for the same rate or less.

We tried to find a place nearby that had a breakfast and there wasn't any really, just sandwich type places.

I have stayed in many Hotels and although this one was very nice, the lack of a FREE breakfast will keep me from ever going back.

Hi Craig! Thanks for taking time to share your feedback... I was happy to hear your experience with the team here went well. Understanding that complimentary breakfast is important to you, I wanted to let you know that we do offer some great dinning experience packages which include anything from breakfast, dinner, both, or even meals for the kids! One of the true benefits of this Bistro is the fact that everything is prepared to order along with the diversity of the menu allowing our guests to order something completely different each day of their stay. Please feel free to reach out to me directly next time you are in the area so we can identify the best package for your needs while in town. Thanks again for staying with us and hope to see you in the future!

All the Best,
Len Goodmn

the courtyard marriott in columbia/jessup maryland was one of the nicest hotels we stayed in a while. just a few miles off 95, in the center of everything. restaurants, shops, stores, anything you could need. right next door was a gem of a find, the sanford grill, which is a must when staying there. just a short walk next to the hotel. the hotel actually had a small cafe on premise that you ycould get food. would definetely stay again

Overall, this was a good deal. Received a comfortable room offering the classic Courtyard experience at a reasonable price. That is, as of April 2013, the hotel has not been fully upgraded to latest incarnation of the Courtyard experience. That probably explains the great price. Although it’s near the highway, it’s kind of buried behind an office park. Signage is helpful but need to keep a lookout for it. One of the advantages is that the hotel is close to Wegman’s, the amazing super market that also serves hot meals. Get your meals here. Overall, would easily recommend as a place to stay while in the Baltimore-Washington area.

SAC, Thanks for staying with us and sharing your feedback! We do consider ourselves very fortunate with our close location to major roads while nestled in a quiet business park. The best of both worlds! Wegmans just up the road is a nice asset to the community and I'm glad you had the opportunity to experience it as well. Next time you are in the area, we have our very own Bistro with food & beverage options along with many other restaurants with-in walking distance. You can try something new each time you're here! Hope to serve you again in the near future...

The rooms are a bit on the small side but it all works pretty well. Our room was very clean and the bed exceptionally comfortable. Internet was free and the connection was strong. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Stanford Grill is right up the stairs outside the door for great dining. Other than the fact that it is a little off the beaten track it is a great place to stay. I got a very good rate and was completely satisfied with our stay. I would stay here again without hesitation.

We did not eat at the hotel or use the pool or health club.

Room Tip: It is a very quiet location so noise will not be an issue.
