Will stay there again
I found this hotel to be just what we were looking for. It was one of the cheapest I could find in the area for our vacation to Washington, but still in D.C.! The staff was friendly and professional, the hotel was attractive, and the rooms were nice. A little small, but clean and comfortable. About a five minute walk to the Metro, so we did not have to worry about driving around (but there was a $15 parking fee per night at the hotel). Hotel was in proximity of LOTS of nightspots, restaurants and coffee shops, all in easy walking distance. Will stay there again.
DC at Courtyard marriott
arrived with a reservation for a room with 2 double beds, but when we arrived the front desk we were told only 1 king witha roll away. i absolutely did not want our daughter on a cot, so i asked what else could be done. because we were staying one night only, the clerk gave us the presidential suite. now remember, this is just a courtyard-marriott, so it was not as luxurious as one would hope. but there was a sitting room which made it convenient for 3 people to watch 2 different tv's. the price was $169.00 and parking was $20.00 (i think) which is a lot lower than many dc hotels. the room was a little tired looking and the bed was very uncomfortable for me, but not for my husband. the neighborhood is very nice and seems to be safe. we did not eat there, but there is a restaurant that we would recommend, levante's in maryland. it is a turkish/mediterranean restaurant and there were wonderful choices. the bread is amazing and our son had the swordfish kabobs which he said was excellent.
I agree with most of the other reviews of this hotel. Friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms--they looked to have been renovated fairly recently. Our room was on the 8th floor looking south towards Dupont Circle, but aside from a few horns was surprisingly quiet. Free wireless internet in rooms was a nice perk. Great shower.
We used Marriott Rewards points for our stay on March 18-19; the rate for that weekend was about $100 on Marriott's site. Didn't dine in or order room service. Hotel is a good jumping off spot to visit Adams Morgan and Dupont Circle (metro there), and a pleasant stroll east will take you to U Street and 14th, which seems to have more dining/shops each time we visit.
Attentive friendly staff, good location, clean comfortable rooms
I stay at this Marriott Courtyard each Fall when I visit Washington, DC for an annual conference. I just love the location; just a block or so north of the Dupont Circle Metro station and on the edge of the interesting and trendy Adams Morgan district. There are some wonderful restaurants all within 15 minutes walk from this hotel. All of the staff, from the gentleman who parks your car to the folks behind the front desk to the waitresses in the small lobby restaurant are consistently courteous, professional and attentive. The on-site restaurant serves a good breakfast. There's a choice of a well-stocked buffet or you can order several choices prepared by the kitchen. The rooms are a little on the small side but comfortable and immaculately maintained. The elevators are never too crowded and seemed to operate efficiently and reliably. Room service, when used, was delivered promptly but the choices are limited and are pretty basic fare. Besides, with all the surrounding dining choices there's little incentive to order in. The Courtyard is not a fancy, pretentious luxury facility. It's a reliable, comfortable, clean place to stay in a good location with a friendly staff for those not too concerned about staying close to the tourist filled Mall area.
We stayed at this Courtyard for the 2005 Inauguration and were very pleased. The location is fine if you aren't afraid to hop on the Metro (only three blocks from the Dupont Circle Metro station). The rooms are clean, but small. The best part of this hotel, however, is the staff. Everyone I encountered went out of their way to answer my questions or get me what I needed. They even allowed us to check in at 7:00 a.m. because there was a room available, even though check in is normally 3:00. If you aren't interested in fancy (who spends that much time in their room in DC anyway), but clean and friendly, this is the place to stay.
So many more options than this
I recently stayed at this hotel. I paid $169 per night. I was extremely disappointed. The rooms are dated, beds are flimsy, pillows are thin and hard...and smell. You can get so much more for the money in the same neighborhood. Washington Hilton and Towers is right across the street. Sometimes you can get that hotel for a comparable price and it is much, much nicer. Because there are so many options nearby, I cannot justify staying at this hotel again. I can think of nothing that would keep me coming back...not even Marriott Rewards incentives.
My first pleasant suprise was at early check-in when I got exactly the type room I wanted. Front-desk crew were cheery and helpful, even showing personal concern during the stay. The room was very clean; absolutely spotless bathroom. My view was straight down Conn Ave towards Dupont Cir. Washington Mon was visible in distance. (Sirens, traffic sounds typically come with a city-side view!) Lots of restaurant is within a short walk (2-4 blocks). Other areas convenient with longer walk, up Conn to Woodley, for instance, is very nice. Room 805 was $94, May 14 & 16. (DC rates in general were very high this weekend; some properties I pay $85-$99 remained $200+.) Car Park was $15. I highly recommend this hotel for business travelers or independents not needing "luxury" hotel amenities. The rather steep (for DC) location might be a problem for some with walking difficulties.
Good value for the money
We stayed at this hotel in March 2004. It was a very good location for activities in the Dupont Cirlcle and Adams Morgan areas. It appeared to have been recently renovated, and the room and bathroom looked brand new. It was sparkling clean, and the staff seemed competent although not warm. The only drawback is the traffic noise at night, however that may be unavoidable in a big city like Washington. The hotel is very clean and attractive.
Good hotel in a great location
I agree wholeheartedly with the previous reviewer--this is a very good limited-services hotel in a great location. Our room was attractively decorated, and very quiet and comfortable. The hotel is four long blocks northwest of Dupont Circle at 1900 Connecticut Avenue, across the street from the Washington Hilton. There are many good places to eat within walking distance, either down Connecticut Avenue, or east 3 blocks to 18th Street (Adams Morgan), or south 4 blocks to P Street west of Dupont Circle. And the neighborhood, on the edge of the embassy neighborhood (one or two small embassies are in the same block as the hotel), can't be beat for walking. It is 3 or 4 blocks to the Phillips Collection, and 5 blocks at most to Woodrow Wilson's home, which is open for tours. Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt also lived in the area at one time, before moving to the White House. At the west end of the block the hotel is in (Leroy Place) is a brick 3-story mansion that once belonged to the family that owned the Washington Post and the Hope Diamond--and it didn't get much richer than that! The grand embassies of Massachusetts Avenue begin about 4 blocks away. So the Courtyard's strengths aren't really its own amenities, though it does serve an attractive buffet breakfast for $9 to $11, and has a small pool for the kids, but rather its proximity to some very attractive parts of Washington. The nearest Metro stop is 3 blocks away at Dupont Circle (Connecticut Ave. and Q Streets). One quirk to note: each floor contains four "King" rooms, which are smaller in size than the 15 other rooms with two double beds each. (Our King was completely acceptable, however).
Great DC location
We stayed two nights at the Courtyard Washington DC and were very happy with the hotel, the location and the service. The hotel is very close to many restaurants and a short walk to the Metro in a good, safe area.
The room was clean and comfortable and we got a very good rate. The bath was a bit small but accomodating. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the DC area.

Right! Must be time to catch up on the blogs!
After Chicago we spent 4 days in DC. We stayed at an Airbnb place in a suburb called Adams Morgan which was a cool neighbourhood. Our host Ruth was lovely. It was a 5 minute walk to the zoo, so our first afternoon was spent there. It was a very hot day and a lot of the animals seemed to be hiding or inside! But we did get to see my favourite - the giant pandas! There was a baby (1 ...
As is so often the way in life, fortune tends to even itself out over time! My last blog told a tale in which the five apples on the slot machine all lined up in my favour, but Washington DC brought an all together different kind of luck!
