I stayed at this hotel for the 2013 Marine Corps Marathon. I could not be more pleased with my decision. We got to the hotel early Saturday morning, and we were able to get in to our room right away. The front desk employee gave us a printed sheet advising us that breakfast would start early, at 5 AM, to help out runners and their families. We were also given easy directions to the start of the marathon and returning from the marathon. Getting to the start from this hotel was a simple walk. It was maybe a mile, but it didn't seem that long. There were lots of others walking to the start as well. The hotel is even closer to the finish, maybe a quarter a mile. The hotel was nothing to fancy, but very comfortable, and everyone was nice and more than helpful.
Besides being an ideal location for the marathon, it was a great location for sightseeing. Just a block or two from the Metro, everywhere is easy access. It's also just a short walk over the bridge to Georgetown.
