Courtyard Washington Embassy Row

Washington DC, USA

The hotel

The DC action surrounding this Scott Circle hotel’s a far contrast from the calm simplicity of its guestrooms, where extra touches include complimentary bottled water and WiFi. Just 3 blocks from Dupont Circle, you’ve got all the sightseeing you need within an easy walk (although you’re also near 3 metro stations if you’d rather save your shoe leather for exploring the sights themselves). There are the big names, like the White House 5 blocks away, and US Capitol Building a mile away; much-coveted monuments, like National Mall a mile away; and museums and galleries, many in the surrounding blocks, and with the Smithsonian Museums 2 miles away. Courtyard by Marriott Embassy Row gives plenty of excuses to return to base though, like its indoor pool and hot tub, fitness centre, and French-inspired bistro dining.

Stayed at Hotel 1600 for 5 days. Short, straight walk to White House and the other tourist spots. Very clean! Staff was super friendly! Would definitely recommend and will stay here next time! The only downsides are 1. They are undergoing renovations, so hoping that they will eventually add a bar or small restaurant so guest don’t need to search for somewhere to grab dinner and 2. The breakfast that is included could use a little upgrade such as a meat/ bacon or sausage and maybe a waffle bar and fruit salad. I can’t say enough good things about the staff however! The most pleasant people I’ve ever met! Read less

We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel 1600. The room was very spacious, clean, and modern. The staff was accommodating and attentive. The location was pretty great -- very easy to get to most of the landmarks and tourist destinations.

I had a great stay at Hotel 1600 a few weeks back! I was traveling for work and this was a perfect choice for my stay. It was a in a quiet and clean area that was an easy walk to my office + plenty of nearby restaurants/bars and the white house. The staff was very warm and friendly, and the room was clean and spacious. Very affordable option!

As the title states, if I could give 1/2stars , it would be 2 1/2 stars. The good...location is excellent, 10 minute walk to White House. Staff very friendly.

As the title states, if I could give 1/2stars , it would be 2 1/2 stars. The good...location is excellent, 10 minute walk to White House. Staff very friendly. However, when you spend over $400 a night (349 + 50 something parking + taxes, fees) you don’t expect to walk into a room with a stained top sheet, one half roll of toilet paper for 3 adults, no frig in room, no bags in trash cans, old water in the ice bucket, no soap dish at sink, and a TV remote that did not work well. I called the front desk, and within 5 minutes someone delivered a new sheet and toilet paper. I changed the sheet. Again, if it did not cost us over $400 for the room, I would not have had such high expectations. There are cheaper hotels not that far away, and I intentionally spent more for a “nicer,” hotel. I was very disappointed. Read less
