Good location for visiting local sites of interest

Posted Feb 25, 2015
Pros: Location, comfortable bed, lots of hot water.
Cons: More comprehensive information about places to eat.
Location: Good shopping, bars, cafes, and very central for visiting historic sites.
Hotel had some nice touches, especially the afternoon complimentary hot chocolate served in the lobby during the coldest winter for 20 years. On a negative note, not at all impressed with the taxis you use specifically the ones hailed from hotel lobby. Cabs not always in a very clean, serviceable state, and ours broke down on the four lane highway enroute to Dulles airport, the driver never spoke a word or apologised. However, a Good Samaritan from a uber car company pulled up, assessed our situation and took us to catch our flight. He told us we had been in a very dangerous situation having stopped on a very busy highway. Obviously these things happen but probably not in a road worthy cab. The only reason we accepted this cab in the first place was because the one we had ordered did not turn up. So be aware, do not be afraid to refuse to get into a car that may not be reliable. Our situation was quickly resolved by an act of kindness, but thought that by informing you, we could prevent this from happening to any other guests.

Birthday Trip

Posted Feb 23, 2015
Pros: Location and staff
Cons: The heater was a little loud
Location: Great Restaurants, and close to Museum Row
The hotel was in a great location. The Staff was wonderful from beginning to end. They gave us free breakfast for the entire stay for my birthday. The Bistro food was very good. The hot chocolate in the lobby was excellent. I would recommend this hotel. Close to great restaurants and museums. I will stay at this hotel again on my next DC trip.

Valentine's Day Weekend

Posted Feb 23, 2015
Pros: Location, Location, Location.
Cons: Heating unit was noisy
Location: We visited the Crime Museum, the Spy Museum and the Mall was only four blocks away. Ford's Theatre is right around the corner.
The Courtyard is an excellent location, close to everything in DC and close to the Metro to cover everything else. The staff was friendly and courteous and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The heating unit was a bit noisy and the room a bit cold but we were there in single digit temps so everywhere was cold. The parking is also convenient but expensive. The cookies and hot chocolate at the end of the day were an excellent touch. We will use them again.

Great proximity to Verizon Center

Enjoyed the stay, and the convenience of the location to the Verizon Center. Much better than driving and finding a parking space!

Good central location

The Courtyard was clean, comfortable and central to what we were seeing in DC. The pool was small but my kids loved it!

Never met nicer staff!

Posted Feb 10, 2015
Pros: Friendly staff, nice breakfast, hot tub and pool, location, convenience, comfy beds, quiet room
Cons: Pillows could be a little fluffier or softer.
Everybody at the hotel was extremely nice and accommodating! The hotel is located right downtown, walking distance to the White House, Capitol, Mall, Washington Monument and Metro station. We never needed a car and saw the most important sights by walking (with our ten year old daughter, in the cold). Lots of great restaurants right at your doorstep. It was a great experience, and I'd recommend this hotel and stay there again! It was great!

Perfect location; friendly staff

Posted Feb 10, 2015
Loved this hotel. Perfect location to the National Mall, White House, Ford's Theater, Monuments etc. Great location to the Metro. Staff was super friendly and went above and beyond. Stayed in February and the hotel had cookies and hot chocolate in the lobby every afternoon when we came in. It was a nice "extra". Will definitely stay here again!

Beautiful, Perfectly Located Historic Hotel

Posted Feb 9, 2015
This hotel proved to be an excellent decision. We loved the ornate detail you are greeted by upon entering! The staff is friendly and willing to help with anything--a plus for travelers with a lot of questions! We enjoyed the room, the personal Keurig, the view of the Smithsonian, and the friendly greetings every time we entered or left the establishment. You won't go wrong picking this hotel! Location can't be beat!
