The following group of staff are the greatest part of the experience at the Hotel, they go above and beyond to make one fill at home. Taa; Papa; Melat; and Manna are four of the best. I have a job that I travel to DC at lease two weeks a month and needed to pick a place to stay. I...

Like more and more Courtyard Hotels, this property is a combination of nasty old finishes and furnishings and terrible service. To start, the parking garage across the alley is dark with an ancient elevator that appears and feels like it should be decommissioned. The room finishes and furnishings appear never to have been updated. The beds and bedding could not...

I know this is D.C. area, and hotels are pricey, but this Marriott needs to put a little money into this place. The parking garage is nasty looking. The luggage carts barely fit in the tiny, worn looking elevators. Halls, rooms kind of dark and dreary decor. There is an empty fridge cabinet, no fridge, in the tiny,dark area where...

If a hotel is going to boast the name Pentagon, you would think it would be walking distance to it. This is not the case. It is at least a 15 minute drive to the Pentagon. There are not a lot of shops that are convenient to walk to. However, there is a CVS, 711 and bizarre little grocery store...

This will read like a bad comedy. The hotel "lost" my reservation 6 times. I was locked out of my room 3 times in 2 days, meaning they needed to re-key my card 3 times. Each time I asked for a re-key...they told me I didn't have a reservation although my luggage was still in the room. For instance...I left...

Recently I stayed at Courtyard. Was visiting DC, went on the white house tour with Girls Scout from NJ. GREAT VISIT TO DC!!! Hotel was clean, great décor, and an excellent staff! Few small issues.

Took taxi from Reston to the hotel. As we approached the driveway we saw a sign saying do not enter. So driver continued down the street thinking there must be another entrance. But there wasn't.

Bob S, Thank you for your comments, as for the arrival into the hotel we have painted large arrows on the pavement to direct cars in a single direction so that we do not have any accidents. It is a safety issue.

This hotel is located in an isolated area. There is nothing that one can walk to, and access to DC via Metro is a half-hour shuttle-bus ride away.

I stayed one night here and I was very pleased. I checked in, parked my car in the deck and then requested the shuttle. The staff checked me in quickly and were very pleasant.
