TL, DR: we would stay there again just because of the location, but there were several minor inconveniences

During the pandemic, I am noticing that everything gets on my nerves more than normal, so understand that was my mindset during this experience when I didn’t want to be traveling, but couldn’t avoid it.

We checked in very late at night and were given zero details about anything regarding the hotel. I specifically asked about food availability since we had driven in, and was told nothing was available that late. In my exhaustion, I didn’t even notice the little snacks market off to the side, and the desk clerk certainly didn’t point it out, so I was pretty annoyed the next morning to come down and see that.
The temp in our room never went under 75, despite being set to 65 - someone came up to check it, turned it off and on, and no one ever came again to try to actually fix it.
One thing that would have been nice to know, but of course we weren’t told at check in (since we weren’t told anything at check in), is that housekeeping isn’t cleaning rooms during your stay, so we had to request towels each day. This is completely understandable, but again, no one told us this.
The bistro usually serves Starbucks, and the front desk (upon being asked) told us, “sorry, that’s also closed due to Covid”. Never mentioning that there is a full size Starbucks just around the corner from the entrance. We were already out the door and heading the other way before spotting it on the app.
The parking garage spots are tight, but manageable and better than street parking.

The location is just blocks from several of the best things to see in DC, so that was the best part. It’s a super easy walk to the White House, Wash monument, Vietnam memorial, Korean Memorial, and Lincoln memorial. It’s also practically on campus for GW.

The staff, though, was generally some of the most unhelpful staff I’ve ever encountered in a hotel at this mid level price point. Front desk staff is usually volunteering info left and right, but most of this group just provided the most minimal information only when asked a direct question. I walked in the front door and used the card key wrong at least three times before one of them finally pointed out how to do it correctly.
Considering the reduced number of guests, it would seem that we’d have better service since they aren’t as busy as usual.

The beds are soft, the pillows are tiny and annoying, the wifi was good and free, and the tvs have streaming capabilities if you sign in on your own personal accounts. Each room has a micro fridge (ours didn’t get very cold).

I would stay there again just because of the location, but I wouldn’t expect stellar service.

I recently stayed at this hotel for just one night on a combination of business and pleasure. It was my last night before I returned home. Hotel is pristine and very much takes safety in terms of CVD19 seriously! There’s ample hand sanitizer machines in addition to very clear signage all over the hotel. My hotel room was not very modern but the bathroom and shower areas were huge and the room was exceptionally clean with comfortable furniture. Plenty of towels were provided and they even offer an area in the hotel lobby to pick up any food deliveries along with dishes and microwaves if you need to heat up your food. There’s a small outdoor courtyard that looked very inviting with outdoor furniture but I didn’t have time to sit outside during my stay. I could see it from my room though.

The best part of my stay were the staff and room comfort. Each and every one of them go above and beyond for their guests. I was working remotely the day I checked in and needed to do a video conferencing call and they allowed me to check in early so I can settle in my room first. They were more then willing to help me. I first spoke to a women to ask for early check in and I am sorry I did not get her name but she was so friendly and pleasant. The other gentlemen at the front desk all provided excellent customer service as well.

I had never stayed there before though come to DC often for work and was quite impressed with the value and entire hotel experience. It’s also very centrally located to the metro, shops and restaurants. A Starbucks is attached to the hotel location for a very convenient coffee break time.

Thank you to the staff for making my stay so pleasant and comfortable. I will definitely be back!

This hotel and it’s staff far exceeded my expectations on a quick, two night stay in DC. Prior to booking, Rachel from the front desk cheerfully answered all of my questions and her professionalism and attitude gave me a good impression of the property prior to my stay. I usually like to select new or recently renovated properties so I have to admit, I was a bit concerned that the hotel’s renovation project got delayed due to Covid. Upon arrival my concerns were erased completely by the spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated hotel lobby and common areas, to the cleanliness of elevators and hallways to my assigned room on the 6th floor, I could not find fault in anything! Evan checked me in and provided helpful info including an excellent restaurant recommendation for Founding Farmers which turned out to be awesome. I was impressed with how clean and nice my room was for the price I paid and felt very comfortable. The bathroom was nice and the walk in shower tile was spotlessly clean. The shower had great water pressure which can be a rarity these days. Rachel from the front desk left a welcome note and a snack in my room which was a really nice touch upon our arrival to the hotel. On Saturday morning we conveniently walked just outside the hotel to Starbucks to pick up our mobile breakfast order before walking to the Lincoln Memorial. The hotel location is safe and quiet and you can walk easily to nearby attractions without needing a car. We enjoy walking but you could also take Lyft or Uber. Daniel from the front desk remembered my name on Saturday and got us a couple of teas despite the Bistro being closed on Saturday evening. The customer service at this hotel really stands out and it was impressive! This is a well run, clean hotel in a convenient location and also a great value for the price. I will definitely stay here again when I return to DC!

This was my second stay at this hotel in the last few months. I booked the hotel again as I had a good experience the first time a few months ago.

The hotel room was comfortable as last time and customer service was consistently good and friendly mostly BUT there were safety concerns.

I had to report twice that my room and the hallway on my floor to the elevators smelled like smoke and marijuana. I am not sure if it was coming from the vents or where but I informed the hotel front desk and there was no follow up. I just gave up.

Secondly, I encountered on at least 5 separate occasions over 4 days where other hotel guests were allowed to walk through the lobby with no masks. This is a real safety concern to me and not fair to other hotel guests. Front desk staff did nothing to respond and they saw the guests walk by the front desk. I was going to leave to go to another hotel but I had a lot of luggage and didn’t want to move and weather was bad when I was there.

One encounter was right in the middle of the lobby where there was seating and tables and a couple was just sitting down with no masks on at all. They were not eating or drinking and the front desk staff could easily see them from their view. This is unacceptable!

There are plenty of sanitation stations and signage but mask wearing is not enforced at all. Management should do a better job to follow up with staff and train them properly. It’s not safe for the employees as well to have multiple people sitting and walking near them with no masks.

As a platinum Bonvoy member I am frustrated that the hotel brand allows this. I will not be returning as this is a clear safety concern in addition to the smells of smoke in the premises.

Clean, quiet and safe! What more do you need?! While our room didn’t have an extraordinary view it was perfect for what we needed. Very quiet at night. Rooms clean and space is ample. Beds are comfortable. Parking garage - $44 for valet. Allowed us to park prior to check in so we could take in the sights during the day. Garage was able to accommodate our oversized SUV loaded with surfboards on top and bikes on the back! No security issues at all! Service was great too.

Pros:
Safe location
Secure parking
Clean
Comfortable
Spacious
Quiet
Classy
Reasonably priced
Close to all major sites/venues
Walking distance to both inexpensive and fine dining options

Cons:
No extraordinary view (but who cares when all the monuments are steps away)

No free breakfast (a Covid casualty we’ve seen as a trend everywhere sadly)

Small pool (again not a deal breaker for us but I know some kids’ hotel memories are made by the pool)

Stayed there last month and wasn’t disappointed. Great location for the Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, and Washington Monument. Easy to get to the GWU Foggy Bottom Metro Station from where you can travel anywhere in the DC Area. Hotel rooms are very well laid out with comfortable beds and plush pillows. The bathroom has shampoo, conditioner and body wash provided. There is a coffee bag processor in the rooms with supplied creamer and sugar. There is a mini fridge in the room too. There is a Starbucks on the corner and a Subway next door to the hotel. Around the block there is a 7-11 Convenience Store.

Very bad experience in general.
We booked online a room with crib, on higher floor equipped with foam pillows and breakfast included.
At our arrival at 3pm, the room was not ready and we were asked to drive around and come back later, completely unacceptable! We reminded the team that we needed a crib.
At 6pm, we came back to check in, we were provided with a room on the second floor (not a higher floor as we have asked) without a crib! So we asked again for the crib to be delivered to the room.
At 8h30pm, after diner, we arrived to the room to see that the crib was still not delivered. And we had to ask for the third time.
It wasn’t until 9h30pm!! that the crib was delivered to our room, our kid was exhausted!!
When we went to bed we discovered that only one foam pillow was provided and not two!!
On the second day, we went to have the breakfast (included with our booking), after waiting for 30 minutes for our turn, we see a very deceiving breakfast selection!!
And not to mention that the pool was not accessible for renovation!
In a summary, we were very deceiving and I don’t recommend this hotel at all!!

Terrible service. Rude front desk staff. Not enough extra blankets for the guests that needed them. Inconsistent housekeeping.

Please do not pay extra for the breakfast. Slow service and they get the orders wrong. Also I paid more to have breakfast included than if I just purchased my own breakfast separately since there is a very limited menu included in the room. Better breakfast options in the same building and right around the corner.

The rooms are worn and the Carpet was dirty.

Only good thing it is really close to GW, but there are other better hotels a little short walk further away.

If you are in DC to look at colleges or simply to watch the 4th of July fireworks, the location of the Courtyard by Marriott Foggy Bottom is great. It's walking distance to the Lincoln Memorial and to George Washington University. American University and Georgetown are a short Lyft ride away. Bring your walking shoes if you take the Metro from Regan Airport, it's a 15 minute walk from the GWU station.

The room is clean and comfortable, what you would expect from Courtyard by Marriott. However, there's no free breakfast like other Courtyards but there is a Starbucks just around the corner so we did that for breakfast every morning. If my child attends GWU, I would definitely stay at this hotel again!

I stayed two nights at the Marriott Courtyard Washington DC Foggy Bottom in July 2021. The hotel has a great location. I could walk to the Lincoln Memorial or White House in about 15 minutes (opposite directions). The Foggy Bottom / George Washington University metro station and the Farragut West metro station both on the blue line are also 15 minutes walking. The check-in process and check-out process were smooth. The front office staff were very nice and helpful. My room was very comfortable with good air conditioning. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom and shower were good. In the lobby was the Bistro were I got a Starbucks latte and scone for breakfast. There was a Subway next to the hotel where I got lunch for take out. The valet parking was good and my car was kept in a secure garage. I definitely enjoyed my stay and the excellent location and plan to stay here again for my next trip to Washington DC.
