Courtyard Washington Embassy Row

Dupont Circle and Embassy Row, Washington DC

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.

Best location. Closure to White House and National Geographic Society. Hotel is under renovation. No such disclosure at the time of booking. Very helpful front desk. They allowed me to check-in 2 hours prior to scheduled time. Housekeeping needs improvement. Quality breakfast.

Wonderful walk to White House and the Mall and hotel at a reasonable price. View of distant White House a few feet right of the hotel. Some construction/updates being done but a nice free breakfast being served during work as a compensation for minor inconveniences.

Was not told in advance that there was construction. We were located in the middle of it. No ice maker near. No comfortable chairs in room. Asked twice before they delivered any on the third day os our stay. Rather uncomfortable to have to sit on bed always. TV clicker did not work properly and was not replaced. No printed channel guide.

Was not told in advance that there was construction. We were located in the middle of it. No ice maker near. No comfortable chairs in room. Asked twice before they delivered any on the third day os our stay. Rather uncomfortable to have to sit on bed always. TV clicker did not work properly and was not replaced. No printed channel guide. Found a big screw left on the floor as well as fragments of electrical wire snippets. Dresser drawer stuck after one use and had to have someone come and open it. Furniture definitely not up to par for the cost. Would not recommend Very disappointing! Needs small fridge and microwave Read less

I chose to stay at Hotel 1600 due to its location, and that was fantastic. Otherwise, the only pros that I can think of are that the bed was comfortable and it had a beautiful shower. The room had only one wastebasket, but it was full of a bunch of hangers. There was nowhere to hang the hangers since there was no closet or even a rod. When I asked… Read more
I chose to stay at Hotel 1600 due to its location, and that was fantastic. Otherwise, the only pros that I can think of are that the bed was comfortable and it had a beautiful shower. The room had only one wastebasket, but it was full of a bunch of hangers. There was nowhere to hang the hangers since there was no closet or even a rod. When I asked the front desk for another wastebasket, they told me that they would provide one. They did not. The room also did not appear to have thick glass on the windows, as it was very loud inside even though I was on the seventh floor. The man behind me in line when I was complaining about the wastebasket said that his room also didn’t have a closet but that his biggest complaint was that construction started at 5:30 in the morning during the weekdays, so he felt like he was having an early wake up call every day. The breakfast looked awful, so I never ate there. At least there was cold water. My room was huge, but spartan. I wish that there had been a couch, a refrigerator, or at least an ottoman for the chair. I recommend waiting until construction is over before staying here. Read less

Easy check in deposit of $50.00 required for each room either cash or card. Renovated rooms on 2nd floor quiet even though over looking a side road (16th St NW which will take you to the White House). Clean room and very comfy bed, nice bedding, free toiletries,coffee maker & coffee no tea. TV & clock radio. No safes in rooms at time of stay… Read more
Easy check in deposit of $50.00 required for each room either cash or card. Renovated rooms on 2nd floor quiet even though over looking a side road (16th St NW which will take you to the White House). Clean room and very comfy bed, nice bedding, free toiletries,coffee maker & coffee no tea. TV & clock radio. No safes in rooms at time of stay but are planned for future.When required we used one in the hotel's office. All staff from breakfast to night were very nice,friendly & helpful especially Lucia who very kindly help with a surprise for one of our party's birthday. The breakfast was ideal plenty of choice, cereal,toast (bread & bagels), pastries,fruit, yogurts,hard boiled eggs & tea/coffee/juice. Ample seating. Great location close to attractions, about 10 minutes walk to White House. Metro easy to use and just a short walk from hotel, as is Dupont Circle which has a good choice of eateries/bars. Would recommend even though there was renovation going on & one room did need to be changed after a couple of days it did not cause us any major issues. Stayed from 14th to 21st September 2019. Thank you for making our stay memorable & we would definitely stay here again if we return to Washington.. Read less
