4 of us travelled to Washington DC in late July 2007.
While searchng for a hotel to stay out we found out that hotels in DC are very expensive and fill up pretty fast so you have to reserve a hotel well in advance.
To be honest, the Mariott Courtyard Washington Embassy Row hotel was the only hotel that had a room available for us so we went ahead and booked in even though we would have liked to have paid a little less for our room.
We found that there is free espresso coffee in the lobby, free internet access, free cookies or muffins in the morning in the lobby.
Bathroom was big and clean with big tub. Room was big and clean and looked out onto the Street. No traffic noise. No noise from other rooms. (Note to Australian travellers: this hotel is just across from the Australian embassy so if anything happens you're staying at the right place !!) Great position - within reasonable walking distance to the White House and all other important buildings. When we were there the White House was fenced off for some reason so you couldn't really get a good look at it.
TIP FOR DAYTIME: The hop-on hop-off sightseeng bus that goes around to the various hot spots.
TIP FOR BREAKFAST: The Nage - right next to the hotel on the ground floor (you can go through to the restaurant through the interconnecting door from the hotel lobby). Great waitresses there at The Nage. Nice decor.
TIP FOR DINNER: The Nage again. We went to The Nage for dinner on our last night in DC here. Charming waiter and delicious food (though expensive but didn't mind because the food was good).
