Came to town for the Paul McCartney concert at Nationals Park. Knew we were going to spend the night in the area because driving 3+ hours back home after the show is not something we wanted to do. So, looked for proximity to DC, cost, Metro access & a pool if possible.
This hotel had it all...
We pre-paid and got a room rate under $80.
ZERO Parking Fee (Park in Garage under hotel)
About 10 miles from DC
Walk to Dunn Loring Metro stop (about a block away)
Computers in the lobby to use
Only Con: (and it's minor)
Pool only open 5-10pm M-F (10am-10pm Sat-Sun)
We didn't eat at the hotel, except for getting a snack once getting back from the concert - but, my experiences at Courtyard's for breakfast are generally pretty good. The reason we didn't, is we tried to save where we could and ate at the Dunkin Donuts less than a block away.
Having easy access to the Metro was huge, since it runs til 3am on Fri & Sat nights. And, saved us quite a bit in time and money. Parking for the concert at Nationals Park was anywhere from $40-$50. Round trip by Metro for 2 was around $20. I'm also sure we got back to the hotel before some got out of the garage.
The next day we took the Metro back into DC to walk around, left the car at the hotel, then when we were done seeing DC, hopped back on the Metro, got the car and headed home.
After just one night, there's no question, the next time we come to the area, we're going to look here first.
