Combining mid-century design features with cutting-edge technology, Courtyard by Marriott’s latest scheme in the US capital has now opened its doors to guests.

This stylish new hotel looks set to impress travellers with its comprehensive offering.

Courtyard by Marriott builds its presence in Washington DC

The prolific Courtyard by Marriott brand has successfully launched its fifth property in Washington DC. Courtyard by Marriott, Washington DC Dupont Circle is a 143-key property conveniently located in the historic Dupont Circle neighbourhood, close to key attractions like Embassy Row, the Cathedral of St Matthew the Apostle and the National Geographic Museum.

According to the brand, “Courtyard by Marriott’s return to the Dupont Circle area offers guests an opportunity to experience a quiet and localised neighbourhood filled with tree-lined streets and historic homes while also enjoying the conveniences of a city centre hotel.”

Guests wanting to keep things simple and dine in can choose from one of the two onsite dining outlets in the hotel’s lobby area. The Bistro is a casual eatery that serves everything from avocado toast to burgers, while The Crate is a grab-and-go option for visitors on the move.

A fresh design aesthetic

Guestrooms have been executed in a sleek and sophisticated style, with generous windows offering expansive views across Washington DC. Blackout blinds allow travellers to enjoy the deepest of sleeps, moreover, and large desks enable them to work in comfort.

“We’re excited to bring this updated version of Courtyard by Marriott to Dupont Circle in the heart of the capital,” said Shaune Johnson, general manager. “This property does a fantastic job of offering guests the Courtyard by Marriott experience, with mid-century modern designs and furnishings, plus the latest technology to stay connected.”

Multipurpose spaces that facilitate work, rest and play can be found in the lobby area, complete with check-in pods and secluded booths. And a 24-hour fitness centre means that active guests can stay in shape throughout their trip.
