I recently stayed at the Courtyard Marriott near Dupont Circle for a business trip. The hotel is nice and has a great location – actually, the location is perfect if you have business within a one-mile radius. Otherwise, the metro is about a 10-minute walk, Farragut North, so, if you need to be near to the metro, this is not the right place for you.
The amenities were nice and the beds were fine – not the best beds you will sleep in but not the worst. The rooms are a bit noisy though especially because you are in the city. You will hear the traffic and of course, others’ doors as they are slammed. The restaurant Nage on the first floor serves amazing – I mean, amazing breakfast at a very reasonable price and coffee and tea is free around the clock. They serve warm cookies in the lobby in the evenings so try to hang out there and the business center has a MAC and two PCs – free for use. There is free wifi and of course, a free paper awaiting you near the door in the mornings.
All in all, it was an okay stay. This is not the best hotel I have stayed at from a luxury standpoint but it meets my needs for one or two nights. There is no fridge or microwave or mini-bar but like I said, it is a good location and hotel for the value.
