Just a few days after I left my corporate job I ventured off with my friend Maria to scout out her new pad in Washington DC. Even though the trip was just a few days it was packed with weeks worth of memories. While we were not successful at finding an apartment for her we did find plenty of places to hang out at in the future. We discovered the …
... br> The Capitol Hill, where the US congress resides, is a very interesting building when it comes to history and architecture. There are free walking tours available (about 1 hour long), but first you have to register online for them: www.visitthecapitol.gov Well worth a visit! Just be sure not to carr any water, other liquids or food with you as they won't allow you to enter with them.

I had the time of my life on our trip! I made new friends, made old friendships stronger, and made connections to life and faith and culture I never could have without traveling where we did! I am so blessed to have had the opportunity! Now it is time to head home for some of mom's ...
... who can just nod off at the drop of a hat - so I spent my time thinking about the photos I took and hoping some of them turned out how I saw them in my imagination. It goes to show how tired we were, we bought 2 Washington t-shirts just to say we had been there but left them on the train when we got off - even though they were only $25 for both, we were kicking ourselves when we got back to the apartment minus the shirts, we couldn't stop thinking about ...
... cheesecake experience with the family this time. Again it didn't disappoint - massive indulgent calorie overloaded cheesecakes. Too big to finish but we tried to anyway. Afterwards that feeling of utter "fatness!". Needless to say we will probably go again!!! Perhaps this time we will share our cheesecakes between two people. Tomorrow we visit our dear friends "The Taylor's " it's been ten years since we last saw them! Looking forward to catching up ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard Washington Embassy Row Washington DC
I stayed at this hotel during a busy week in Washington and a Courtyard room that would cost about $139 in any other part of the country was going for about $319. However, the front desk staff was very welcoming and pleasant, and the rooms are clean, relatively newly refurbished, and generally quiet. The only major exception the quiet was that the rooms facing a busy traffic circle can get a little noisy at times, and Marriott should have done a better job getting thicker windows and insulation. A minor exception to the quiet is that the maids, though very pleasant, can get a little noisy in the morning. Generally, it was a great staff, though keep in mind it is a Courtyard and they do not offer white glove service. Only one of the bellman was a little rude when I asked for help with a cab; the others were very pleasant and polite.
We had a great stay here. The Courtyard is centrally located: we walked everywhere and when we needed a Metro its about 10 miniute walk all in great neighborhood. The hotel room were very clean, service was top shelf and had nice in-door pool and jacuzzi. Free internet in the lounge. I got priceline deal that was far less then the going rate but at full value this hotel is a find. We would definately stay here again.
Very solid choice downtown
The room was very well maintained. Most staff members (one cranky exception) were kind and helpful. The metro is only three blocks away, and the White House six. Very reasonable rates were available on-line.
Had a great time
We stayed here for the 4th of July week end. The hotel was clean and attractive. The room was big and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Would stay again.
Nice hotel, average staff, not tourist-friendly
This was a nice hotel. rooms were clean. The Marriot website said that all rooms had a refrigerator but ours did not. We got a great deal for 2 nights during the week for $65 through Priceline. The staff was average, they did not seem to know where things were around town. I asked how to get to RFK stadium and 2 people at the desk did not know, they said they would find out and call my room with the directions. An hour and a half later, I went back to the front desk and spoke to someone else who was very helpful. The hotel lacks tourist information both in the rooms and in the lobby. This would be a great place to stay for a business trip. Parking was $20/day plus valet tip.
Great value for the money
I got a really great price for this hotel in comparison to the other hotels in the D.C. ($107.10 a night). Because the price was so low, I was not expecting much. To my pleasant surprise this was a great value for the money. The room was a bit small but recenlty renovated with a very comfy bed. We had a view of the Washington Monument from our window. Most importantly, this hotel was very clean--I love that!!! The staff was friendly and helpful. For me the location was perfect. We were really close to Georgetown and a lot of attractions. Definitely look into this hotel and see if appreciate a good value.
Adequate, but nothing special
I stayed in the Courtyard on March 15. They only had one room left, and it was a king 2 room suite for $299. The room was very spartan, and the heating system was not that effective. It smelled rather odd -- not stinky, but kind of like a dirty rug. While I was out, they came in and replaced some furniture, and turned off the heat. But the hotel was clean and friendly, and the breakfast was very good and reasonably priced. Over all, it was ok for the price at that location. With a little effort, this could be a very nice hotel instead of an adequate hotel.
Basic business hotel with basic amenities at comparatively reasonable rates in a very good area for business travelers. Nothing special, but clean and with business amenities such as high speed connections. You will need to eat at somewhere other than the hotel restaurants.
After the last review, I was pleasantly surprised to find the Courtyard immaculate, spacious, friendly and very comfortable. It is in a bit of an off-center location, but taxis are plentiful and it is only a 15 minute walk to the subway.
We were greeted promptly and both our reserved roms were ready before 10 am. They were spacious and very comfortable. The restaurant was affordable ($10 breakfast bufet) and complimentary coffee (and afternoon cookies) were provided each day. Newspaper too. They even offered free internet access from a wide screen computer in the lounge, though there is no distinct business center.
I would definitely stay here again.
It was OK
Stayed at the Courtyard from 5/9-5/10. I guess I wound up on the smoking floor even though I'm a non-smoker because I wanted to check in early (12 PM), but truth be told, the check in clerk never asked me if I wanted smoking or non. The room stank like smoke, the toilet wouldn't flush properly until the 3rd try, and the a/c is pretty loud. Also, the pillows were "mushy." That sounds picky, but think of a pillow that's overly soft and then mushes down so much that it's really thin and hard. The hotel was about what you'd expect for a business traveler's hotel, but it just didn't have any charm. I found it somewhat depressing, actually.
