DC is just expensive, no getting around it. I would normally expect a bigger room, more charm, better amenities and a nicer neighborhood from a hotel costing over $250 a night. However, in the end, it did meet my basic needs as a business traveler. The convenience of the location just cannot be beat: you practically roll out of bed... More

Only one person working the check in desk. Long wait. Room was way down the hall past the conference rooms. Get in, and it's about 80 degrees in the room. Thermostat won't allow a temperature reduction. Sirens all night. Stifling heat. Terrible stay.

If you have stayed at a contemporary Courtyard (with the giant video wall, bar/gathering place, etc.), then this hotel will meet your expectations. The location is great. Right by the metro station. This would have been a 4*, but the staff were not very friendly or helpful. As merely one example, I called a head to make certain that we... More

The time we entered the hotel, the snow outside was threatening us but inside it was fabulous. The hotel is so good for many outsiders. Hotel is situated in a very nice corner where not much traffic, less than a minute walk to Metro, next door 7/11 on left, fast Indian Restaurant on the right and many other fast food... More

This Courtyard is a lot like them all...clean, comfortable rooms and friendly, efficient service staff. Average gym, larger pool, pleasant restaurant and bar. BUT, despite its name, it's a long way from most places including the Capitol and even further from museums. And, not a lot of choices for dining nearby.

This is our 5th year staying at this hotel with our high school students and parents. The staff is outstanding and the hotel is very secure. The location to the metro is unbeatable and amenities are perfect for a student group or families. I highly recommend this hotel when traveling to DC.

The room was clean and big enough for four people. Staff was ok and location is very good, next to Gallaudet Subway station. What I didn't like is that the area around the hotel didn't look very safe at night. My parents and I went out to look for a place to have dinner and we didn't feel secure walking... More

Comfortable rooms, friendly staff, lovely pool and gym, conveniently located next to the Metro. It snowed while we were there so we did not explore Washington. We will need to come back and stay at the same place.

Not in the downtown area but the hotel is basically over the Metro station so easy to get anywhere. Much more reasonalbly priced, it has a great little bistro bar with really nice staff. Downside there are no nice area to eat out within walking distance.
