Drove to the Courtyard Marriot Dunn Loring Fairfax, Vienna, DC from CT. Parking in enclosed gated Garage and felt very safe. Parking Garage opens with room key. Has a nice small indoor pool that I always passed and saw people swimming - did not have time to take a dip. Best of all it's walking distance from the Metro if your with Family planning to make the downtown DC visit - Parking would have been expensive (anywhere from $25 to $50) and crazy in downtown. Room was always kept absolutely clean by service staff and we got a good 3 night's rest (2 nights reserved on way to Myrtle Beach - 1 night on way back to CT from Myrtle Beach). We were on the 7th and 9th floors which were great - nice view from the room - could even see fireworks on July 4th from our room. Got the reservations from Hotels.com for $79 a night (non-refundable reservations). They did seem to have good food available for room service or eating down - but I did not have the opportunity to do that... always ate out. Also had a market place to buy stuff from vending machines - if you get desperate. One night I noticed that the Garage door kept opening when trying to close. So don't leave your car open just because it's in the garage.
