We planned a weekend of doing the sights in D.C., and as always I turned to TripAdvisor to find a place to stay. I was not disappointed. The hotel was two blocks from the Metro and two blocks from a great variety of restaurants, where we returned to eat each evening. Some reviews mentioned the hotel being dated...I didnt see that - our room was fine, maybe average but the furnishings were nice and everything was clean. There was a flat screen tv, frig, coffeemaker, and microwave. Since we basically just rested, slept and had breakfast the room was a good enough size for us - with a king bed. The breakfast was average, typical pastries, bagels, cereals, yogart, hardboiled eggs - and all the items seemed fresh. There was a nice garden patio where we could have eaten but it was actually a bit cool first thing in the morning. The breakfast room is tiny, but there are couches and comfy chairs in the lobby along with the garden area. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful (and generous with the little chocolate candies...thank you!!) We did have an issue - for some reason - each morning after breakfast our room keys wouldnt work - they initially had us staying for only one night, which kept causing the problem. But the staff was apologetic and resolved the problem easily. The only issue - and it wouldnt keep me from coming back -- the one side of our king bed sunk a lot -- (but that was my husband's side, so no problem for me!) and the air conditioner was a bit noisy. (Another issue -- and this is not just for this hotel, but a lot of others so I wish there was a general place to put this There needs to be access to electric outlets next to the bed...not hidden behind the bed, where you cant reach them or across the room, where your computer cord wont reach if you are relaxing in bed. ) We did get a great special rate for a 3-night stay of $99/night which I felt was really good for being in the DC area. And yes we did have to pay for parking - but that wasnt unexpected, again considering the area. I'm sure we will want to visit the DC sites again and I would definitely come back to the Besthesda Court Hotel.
