When in DC, what better than not having to rent a car and save bucks on parking fees which are really hefty in DC and so are they at this hotel too so avoid renting a car if possible, as the Metro runs right underneath this hotel and DC metro can take u anywhere so u can skip the car.
The location is good from the metro perspective but otherwise its a deserted area with nothing much to do besides coulpe of small Sushi places and a BK. Not a good place to walk around either. The hotel comparatively is nice and contemporary, lobby is great - guess they are updating all Courtyard's lobby look like this. Therez a huge gadgety touchscreen TV thru which u can locate attractions, restaurants etc. not seen in any other hotel brand. Therez a nice lobby bar and a restaurant, overall making it a decent place to grab a quick bite / beer.
Rooms were decently sized too overlooking the rail tracks which was the only dampener but then none of the rooms have a view of sorts so you dont have any choice there.
So book it if you grab a deal on priceline/opaque sites for that is where you are bound to go in the pricey DC market.
