    Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard Washington Embassy Row Washington DC

    Okay hotel, but....

    from

    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.

    Re food, I did not eat in the hotel, but there is a hybrid Starbucks/hotel coffee bar open I think just in the morning which is very helpful. There was also coffee available in another part of the lobby.

    The fitness center, etc. was nice but a little limited, though this is the case in most hotels.

    My complaints with the hotel were (1) there were some very inconvenient electrical outages in my room that it took their staff just a little bit too long to get right, and (2) there were some insect problems in the room... the hotel was a little slow responding on this and I decided to check out rather than wait to see if my unwanted visitors left. Surprisingly, I never received an apology from the senior hotel managment about this, though the front desk manager who checked me out was very apologetic.

    I might stay here again, but I would say it would be my last stay if I have problems again.

    Great Stay

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Good enough

    from

    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.

    Recommended

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Wounded Warrior Memorial is touching and reminds us, many still need out thoughts, prayers, and support.


    These pictures require little explanation, only reflective thought about how fortunate we are and a reminder that we should never forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we, and so manyothers in the world may live free.

We didn’t realise that you had to purchase tickets in advance to go up inside it but luckily Dad did his usual chat to one of the ladies and we managed to get in anyway. We were so glad we had as the views from the top were amazing with unimpeded 360 degree views of Washington and West Virginia. We could even see the Pentagon.

    Dulles National Air And Space, were else can you see all these planes together? By the look on Aaron's face and the amount of running around he did taking pictures I think he had a good time as well.

    At one stage we thought we might run out of time in DC and would not be able to get out to visit this Museum, now we have fabulous pictures and great memories!
