We stayed here for three nights recently and I think it was an excellent and sensible choice especially if you have a vehicle and are touring DC. The parking is free which is a rarity as you move closer in to the City. This hotel offers a great compromise in value and proximity to DC. It is located in a nice, safe area that is only about 300 yards from the Dunn Loring Metro stop. It takes 20-25 minutes on the Metro to get into the City. There is a nice new Dunkin Donuts about 200 yards to the south and plenty of stores and restaurants within a short drive. The rooms are typical nice Courtyard and seem to be well insulated. The front desk crew was friendly enough. Here's my only caution ... the parking is indeed free. There are about a dozen spots outside and the rest of the spots are in a parking garage. I was driving an SUV with a roof top carrier. It did not fit in the parking garage. Fortunately we used the Metro most of the time and I was able to secure an outside parking spot, otherwise I would have been out of luck.
