WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - Feb 14, 2014) - They say it's what's on the inside, not the outside, that counts, but after an extensive renovation, the Courtyard Washington, DC/Dupont Circle now offers the best of both. From driveway resurfacing to updating guest rooms, this Embassy Row hotel offers style and substance from the inside out.

The biggest changes can be found in the Dupont Circle accommodations, which have been completely renovated to include a custom design with a burgundy, brown and tan color palette; modern accents including lighting, furniture and mirrors; new carpet and wall coverings; a desk with granite top and bedside lamps with USB ports and outlets. Rooms now include a mini-fridge and laptop safe, and bathrooms offer additional shelving to accommodate toiletries and lighted mirrors.

The Presidential Suite lodging at this hotel in Dupont Circle, located on the top floor, also got an upgrade and offers panoramic views of Connecticut Avenue and the Washington Monument. The separate bedroom features a king sized bed, spacious bathroom with a walk-in shower and Jacuzzi tub, LCD TV and spacious closet, while the living area includes a wet bar, mini-fridge, LCD TV and floor-to-ceiling windows.

While guests will be tempted to spend their entire visit in their renovated room, the hotel also features the brand's Refreshing Business concept lobby, offering various spaces with the flexibility for work and relaxation.

"From day one, Courtyard has prided itself as a brand that listens to what travelers want from a hotel," Janis Milham, vice president, Global Brand Manager, Courtyard by Marriott, says. "Guests want more control and choice with services and amenities that create a healthy balance between working and relaxing. We redefined the Courtyard lobby so it invites guests to get out of their rooms to work, socialize or for entertainment, whether traveling alone or with colleagues." 

The bright, open space features a contemporary design, lounge-like seating areas, private media booths with HD TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi and the brand's exclusive GoBoard® technology, a 52-inch LCD touch-screen packed with local information, maps, weather and news, business and sports headlines. Dining has also been completely redesigned with The Bistro, where guests can enjoy high quality, healthy options for breakfast and find light fare, including snacks, wine and beer, in the evening.
