Anyway, we caught another Megabus at half 11 for our 4 and a half hour journey to Washington DC (only 34 bucks for us both, bargain!). Negotiated yet another new subway system and walked to our hostel (DC Lofty) checking in around 5.
We found out that our hostel is linked to another one and they have a pool party on Thursday's at a roof top pool in ...

The Difference Really is Extraordinary

A travel blog entry by stuartcameron19


On 3 June I spent a fascinating morning at the Lab School in Washington DC ( I would highly recommend having a look at the introductory movie on the front page of their website. It gives the viewer a great insight into what the school is really all about. The Lab School is a unique learning environment which provides an alternative approach to education for children with learning difficulties and ADHD. The school embraces these ...

Sober moments with rarely sober company

... diversion. I mean that we got to see a ritual that many people do not see. A team of horses pulling a gun caisson loaded with a flag draped coffin, escorted by a military band, armed honour guard, followed by the colour guard.

We arrived at the tomb of the unknown soldier just before noon, the time of the changing of the guard. Again we were fortunate to see this ritual, even as three volleys of a salute echoed from the nearby funeral. These few moments really drove ...

... all had different coloured t-shirts on, and were having their pictures taken in large groups.

We then walked the couple of blocks up to visit Barack, stopping only for ice-creams. For some reason all the security guards didn’t think we were important enough to actually go in to the White House, so we had to content ourselves with taking pictures through the bars like all the other turkeys. One of those surreal moments in life, coming face to face ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard Washington Capitol Hill/Navy Yard Washington DC

    Beautiful Hotel - location??


    This hotel is in perfect condition! You can tell that it is brand new. It offers many amenities that are not typical of the courtyard brand. There is a restaurant, bar, and room service. The rooms are very nice too. The only negatives are that the website says that it costs $9-10 between Reagan National Airport and the hotel when the actual cost is about $17-18 (confirmed with the front desk) and There is almost nothing in the (walking) vicinity. As the Taxi driver said "the area is a 'no fly zone'" - WOW!

    OK for price paid.


    Rooms are small but clean and fairly modern. Beds are comfortable but on the small side. Biggest concern was the bathroom, clean overall but not very appealing. Plastic shower/tub combo with signs of mold around tub @ floor. In all fairness it's probably nearly impossible to keep mold at bay with no windows and only a small exhaust fan, more of a design flaw than anything. Location was good, only 3 blocks from the Mall ,and the staff was very friendly. Lobby / restaurant / fitness rooms were quite nice but the pool is kind of a joke, you could almost jump across it - about 9' x 15' feet [by estimate]. They must have a really expensive wide angle lens for the pool photos on the web site !!! Not bad for $$ paid but felt we should probably have spent a few bucks more and stayed someplace nicer.

    This hotel certainly helped make our stay in D.C. as wonderful as it was!


    My family stayed in this brand new hotel in August. We took adjoining rooms so that the children can sleep in one room and my husband and me in another. The rooms were immaculate, and beautifully furnished. The really comfortable beds, had loads of pillows, there was a pull out sofa, (which was a full size bed when open), the bathrooms were sparkling white, clean, shiny bathtubs, and toilets and vanity, plenty of towels. There was a refrigerator, coffee maker, iron and ironing board, many lighting options/lamps. The elevator came really fast, we never had to wait long, it was there within 15 seconds or less. The kids enjoyed the pool each night.

    Very Nice Hotel


    I have stayed at this hotel a couple of times since it opened, and I absolutely love it. I am very picky about where I stay, particularly with the bathroom. However, there were no such issues at this location. The hotel was brand new when I stayed the first time, and when I went back a few months later, it was still in emaculate condition. I plan to stay again tonight.

    It is true that the neighborhood leaves a lot to be desired. But, I have not witnessed or been a party to, any unsafe activity.

    I highly recommend this location. If it remains as clean and up to par as it is now, I will continue to stay there.

    Great staff, nice hotel, hang the interior designer


    Spent 4 nights here in early June. Not really the sort of neighbourhood for a pleasant evening stroll, but apart from that pretty good. Great staff, convenient location with the Metro (and not a lot else) right next door

    The rooms are significantly smaller than the normal Courtyard standard accomodation and whoever designed the rooms has obviously never stayed in a hotel - bedside tables about the size of a postage stamp, appalling lighting and a flat screen TV that's only visible from one side of the bed.

    Great hotel


    After reading the reviews on this hotel, I was concerned about the area. But it was a great new hotel with warm and friendly staff. We used the metro which was less than a block from the hotel front entrance. We (women) even used the metro at night and never felt uneasy, we were the only people in the subway station. We ate at the burger place across the street which served old-fashion hambrugers and fries. The Subway sandwich shop in the strip mall served breakfast for the busy mornings and the hotel provided a good buffet breakfast($7.95). They cooked eggs or omlets to your liking and provided fast service. The bar served snacks at night and had fresh fruit, salads, and sandwiches for purchase. Our large room had a queen size bed with a sofa sleeper, with nice comfortors, lots of pillows. Large bathroom with plenty of towels. When I visit Washington next time I will stay at this hotel.

    Brand Spanking New, Great Staff, Premature Location


    Stayed here for 9 days in May 2006. The hotel was just built and opened the end of March 2006- so everything is fresh, bright and smells good. Nice lobby with small bar, dining room complimentary computers and even a free printer. Makes it nice when printing out a Mapquest for a visit or a ticket voucher!

    Brand new hotel very convenient to Metro


    I stayed at the Courtyard Navy Yard for four nights in May 2006. This hotel is brand new and my room was immaculate. I was on one of the upper floors in the corner room (the outside glass sort of wraps around the edge of the hotel). The room was spotless, and with all the amenities you could want including wide- screen LCD TV, free broadband, good-sized bathroom, ironing board, hair dryer, and lots of lighting options. Room service is not available after 10pm, but there is a simple, decent, breakfast buffet and even a little "snack market" next to the registration desk. It's basically a hotel designed for business travelers, but it's new and definitely NOT some dump!

    Brand new property in area being revitalized


    Stayed for 3 nights April 7-10 during cherry blossom festival. My son lives in DC in the Capitol Hill area and he was wary of this area as I was traveling with my mother and we were 2 women alone. However we were pleasantly surprised as this is an area that is being revitalized and the staff informed us the new stadium (replacing RFK) is going to be built in the area so there will be a lot of construction/demolition going on in the meantime. When we checked in we were told the hotel had only been open one week. The rooms are absolutely beautiful with all new contemporary furnishings with flat screen TVs. The bathroom was lovely, everything brand new. The beds are heaven, we love Marriott beds. The parking is valet only at this time but the rate does go down to $10 on the weekends and is $17 during the week. The Navy Yard metro is right across the street which is super convenient. Most of the staff was new and some were still in training. The supervisor of the valet parking people told us that if we came back next year we will notice a lot of improvements in the immediate area surrounding the hotel as they are sprucing up this area. We had a room on the 9th floor and did not have a view as such but if you ask for a room higher (I believe there are 15 floors) we were told there are better city views. For the newness of the staff, we found them to be helpful, especially the concierge, Duane, who was very friendly, giving us advice on pizza delivery and other food options. They have a nice eating area in the hotel which we did not take advantage of but did look at the menus and it looked like they had quite a variety to offer. We definitely would stay there again.

    Stayed three nights in the new courtyard


    Myself, husband and 9 yr old were booked via Priceline to stay at the L'Enfant. When I called the hotel directly to verify the Priceline reservation I was told we were in the "Parlor Room". Long story short that is just 1/2 of a room w/ a pull out couch! After fighting w/ Priceline they switched us to the Courtyd by Marriott Navy Yd. ($169 per night during the Cherry Festival). We were there 04/05/06-04/08/06. With that said and not knowing the area we checked in early. The valet parking was $17 per day. The front desk and bell hop were super. The room was very nice. Liked the decor, bedding was high thread count, the mattress was fantastic (may have been a Temperpedic), the bathroom was large, new, clean. The second floor indoor pool & whirlpool (and workout room) were all excellent. Smallish but new and very nice. The food at the on-site restaurant was better than average both in price/quality.
