With museums and galleries practically at the front door, it's no wonder the Courtyard by Marriott Convention Center hotel gets high marks from our guests. The stately stone building, constructed more than a century ago, is a landmark on its own. Built as the headquarters of a bank in 1891, the Courtyard by Marriott has one of the city's most impressive facades. The interior retains much of the grand architecture, including towering columns, sweeping arches and filigree ironwork. You can even take a peek at the 20,000-pound door of the original bank vault. The 179 non-smoking rooms, spread out over 10 floors, are filled with creature comforts like plush beds with high-end linens. The well-lit workstations have ergonomic chairs and access to Wi-Fi for a fee. There's a casual eatery and a pub serving microbrewery specialties, and scores of other options are on the nearby streets. Tropical plants ring the heated indoor pool and hot tub, and a fitness room has weight-training and cardio equipment. The Courtyard by Marriott is part of Penn Quarter, a quickly gentrifying area filled with restaurants and clubs, as well as museums, galleries and theaters. Within a block or so are some of the city's most popular attractions, including the International Spy Museum, National Museum of Crime and Punishment and Madame Tussaud's. A quick three-block stroll takes you to the National Archives, the U.S. Navy Memorial and the National Mall. Two important transit hubs, the Metro system's Gallery Place/Chinatown station and Metro Center station, are within three blocks. Five miles south is Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, easily reachable by taxi or subway. For location, there are few hotels with so many sights just outside the front door. The historic building and access to public transportation make the Courtyard by Marriott Convention Center a winner.
