With the hotel a 2 minute shuttle ride to the Metro station, this was perfect for our needs. We found it very easy to navigate the metro system, and didn't mind the ride into the city. The shuttle runs to 10:30pm, but when we called at 10:40 one evening, they picked us up with no problem.
On weekends the parking is free at the (large) lot by the station, so we just parked there on the Saturday we were there.
The hotel itself was very nice, looks recently renovated, beds were comfortable, staff friendly. We could hear the shower in the next room pretty clearly, but other than that there were no issues with noise either from inside the hotel or outside(we were overlooking the highway).
My husband and son ate breakfast in the hotel restaurant. My husband had eggs, toast, bacon, & potatoes with orange juice. My son had Froot Loops and strawberries and a banana. This came to $28, which we thought was way overpriced.
But with the price of the room being just $98, I'm not complaining about the price of food. We can go elsewhere to eat.
There is also no charge to park at the hotel, which is a big plus.
Next time we go to DC, we'll definitely be back to the Courtyard by Marriott.
