Great place, perfect for our event down the block. I know parking is expensive in that area but $47.20 for one night. That's like paying for a third person! My only real complaint was that there was not a cup for drinking water in the room.

Under renovation but still had a fast check in, easy late check out process, and nice rooms. Save yourself a trip and ask for a towel at reception!

Stayed at the Courtyard Marriott-Dupont Circle for a conference across the street at the Washington Hilton. Very enjoyable stay, rooms were clean and service was friendly and reliable. Would recommend for those staying in the Dupont Circle area, walk to Metro (Dupont Circle) stop is only around 10 minutes or so...uphill on the way back though, not too bad however! The staff were courteous and kind and were always ready to help if needed.

Okay for a very short stay

I needed to spend one night in DC and this hotel was the cheapest and with a good location.

Great Location!

Couldn't beat this hotel for the price and location.  Just off Dupont Circle.  Amenities were great.  Worst thing about the room was that it was directly adjacent to the hotel's outdoor patio area.  So right out the window was a large patio area with chairs and tables.  Although not a lot of people were there during the day, it forced you to keep the curtains pulled if you wanted any privacy.  If you didn't, then no problem.  Bathroom was a little small.  Not conducive to a woman that needs to have SOME counterspace as there was absolutely none.  Otherwise, nothing but good things to say.  Oh yeah, $30/day for parking.  Staff was great.  Mini-starbucks in the lobby.  I'd stay there again.

Great place at a reasonable price

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, great staff
From the get-go, every staff member at the courtyard dupont circle was warm and courteous. The rooms were clean and modern, and the hotel location was perfect for all our needs. Now if only we could convince them to have room service, everyone would stay here...

This hotel is located in a fabulous historical district surrounded by tons of local restaurants.

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: ice cream was $9.50/qt
The hotel is a little older style, however exceptionally clean and super polite staff. I love this area and would definitely stay here again!

Nice, hotel, bathroom was the drawback. no space to put toiletries

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: no counter around bathroom sink
This was a nice hotel, very nice staff, close to my conference. The main drawback was the lack of counter space in the bathroom to put toiletries, make-up, curling iron, etc. Otherwise it was very nice.
