Courtyard Washington Capitol Hill/Navy Yard

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel was in a great location for our travel. However, quality of services were below what I expect from Courtyard. They tout a restaurant, but for breakfast they had microwaved sandwiches for $8.50. These were not high-quality sandwiches, don't think they even had real eggs in them. Their liquor license only allows them to sell alcohol from 3-11 p.m. So, on Sat night their "sports bar" closed down right in the middle of several games on TV. Parking fees were $47.20 total per night and you have to drive your vehicle to the garage. On check-in, the front desk staff said I could either use the garage parking or park on the street (metered until 6 p.m.) Learned the next day that the hotel had a surface lot available for considerably less than the garage parking.

Clean rooms, nice modern decor and very comfortable.

Excellent service, clean rooms and pleasing staff!

For what I paid I expected better parking was terrible front desk people were rude no complimentary anything and the bathtub is very slippery

Was a very nice facility, close to restaurants and baseball stadium. My only complaint was the bathroom linens were thinner than I would have expected and though 2 bath towels were picked up, none were left to replace them.

Great hotel close to the ball park. There was no game so it was quiet most of the night except one couple fighting in the hallway at 4 am, but that did not last long. Very nice staff at the front desk, super helpful.

This hotel was clean but very expensive. we had planned for our kids to sleep on the pull out sofa but it was the size of a twin bed so only 1 could use it. The other child had to sleep on the floor when we asked for any additional blanket for her, they claimed they had none so slept covered in towels (or rather, tried to sleep but couldn't).

We stayed here for a weekend in January 2014. The staff was really nice and friendly right off the bat. The location is decent- right near a CVS, a 5 guys, an ice skating rink (in the right weather!), a bar, and a train station. We loved our room. Pretty, tranquil, simple, and clean.

Easy access to Nationals stadium and metro station. Clean room, good sized bathroom.

The location was great, 10 minute walk to Capitol Hill. Friendly, helpful staff were great. Would have liked greater choice for an evening meal on the Sunday evening after a long day sight seeing.

This was the perfect location for us. We needed to be close to the Marine Barracks. The fountain and wade pool right outside gave our little one satisfaction when not adventuring the monuments and museums. Did not know about parking fee, ouch!

It was a very cozy stay and the staff was very helpful and kind. The food in the bistro restauarant was very tasty. I plan to stay again on my next trip to D.C.

This hotel was in a perfect location and very affordable. The staff was very helpful and provided excellent advise for people not from DC. Downtown was blocks away and the Metro was steps away. The only down side to this hotel is its lack of near by restaurants and night life. All and all, I will stay at this location again when my future wife and I visit DC.

I went to Wash DC with 4 friends to attend a wedding. We planned a long weekend with 2 days before the wedding and one day after. The hotel was within 2 miles of all the wedding events. The hotel staff was very helpful in lining us up with tours and things to do within walking distance. All of our special requests were met with a smile. I would definitely stay here again.

I booked this hotel for a short sightseeing trip with my hubby. Being budget conscious, hotels in downtown DC were way out of our price range. Courtyard by Marriot at Navy Yard is about a block away from a Metro station, so we were able to jump on the subway and be anywhere in downtown in about 10-15 minutes! Super convenient. The neighborhood is not exactly what we pictured though. Kind of sketchy to be walking through at 11PM, to be honest. The hotel is very clean, comfortable and modern decor on the inside. Parking is $29 a day, and is good until about 1PM the day of checkout. There is no room service. There is a small bistro that serves decent food (breakfast was oatmeal, eggs, microwave bacon, and bottled orange juice) as well as a 24-hour convenience section with snacks, microwave meals, and drinks (soda, water, wine, etc). The gym, pool and hot tub areas are very clean, but are a bit small. Overall, it was an okay pick as we were not in the room for much more than showering and sleeping. But if this is going to be a romantic get away or a family vacation, you might want to find another hotel.

Staff was great. Very comfortable room. Wish the location was closer to the city, besides that everything was ok.

The hotel and its staff were wonderful for my trip. Literally a block from the Navy Yard metro stop, so it's extremely convenient for getting anywhere on the system. For the sub-100 dollar price I paid, the price was tough to beat for the location. However, I must warn you about parking. The hotel requires "valet" parking. It's anything but valet. The charge is $29/night and requires you to drive to the back of the hotel and down into a parking garage where you must drop your car off to a parking garage attendant. They then park it within eyesight-where you, yourself could have parked it, and return with a key tag. You must scan in and out of the parking garage after they retrieve your car as well. Speaking of retrieval-be ready to wait. They are NOT in any hurry to get your car, and sometimes there are 3+ customers all waiting. This parking makes it extremely inconvenient. In final, if you must have your car multiple times on the trip, I'd steer away from this hotel. If you're going to navigate sites by metro, then it's great

The room was ready when we arrived at around 5 pm. Room is clean, and bigger in size than hotels in the middle of the downtown. A large park is under construction now but the environment around the hotel will be significantly improved after the work is done.

First room we were issued had several defects. However, the hotel staff was prompt in giving us another room upon request.

Family trip to DC with two teenage kids. Location was very convenient for Metro but the immediate neighborhood lacks restaurants. Staff was great. Able to give us good guidance on where and how to get food. Important since the food at the hotel seems more geared for corporate (expense account) clients. Would definitely use again on business trip, but might pass for on our next family visit.

This hotel was clean but very expensive. we had planned for our kids to sleep on the pull out sofa but it was the size of a twin bed so only 1 could use it. The other child had to sleep on the floor when we asked for any additional blanket for her, they claimed they had none so slept covered in towels (or rather, tried to sleep but couldn't).
