Marriott Courtyard

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by lgarcia45 on July 3, 2005

The Courtyard is located a few blocks from the Rossyln Metro stop in Arlington, VA. It is thus very convenient to Reagan National and all points served by the Metro. This is the primary reason we picked this hotel.

There is also a Safeway food store just behind the hotel that makes buying such items easy. Around the hotel are several fast-food joints, like Quiznos and Subway, plus a Memphis-style barbeque place and a nicer-than-normal Chinese restaurant. There is also an Italian takeout/dine-in place (good) called Il Raddichio. The Marriott also has a van that can take you a bit farther afield if you would like to nosh at several other restaurants, including a Cheesecake Factory. Ask the front desk for suggestions.

Courtyards offer a somewhat pricey breakfast and complementary cookies in the evening. We used their whirlpool, as did many other guests, to massage our tired feet at the end of a long day. The pool is small and always full of noisy kids. The rooms are Courtyard standard. Our rate was about $129 for a double with three people.
