“Typical courtyard”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Decnet place to stay, nothing out of the ordinary. Not within walking distance of anything other than the Metro. Room was clean but heating unit was pretty loud, no way to watch TV without cranking the volume up so loud that your neighbors could hear it. Hallways had a pretty stale smell but not the rooms. fitness center pretty weak - 2 treadmills, stationary bike, and an elliptical.

Very adequate and comfortable place. Within one block of the metro, which was a significant advantage. Also this is near the end of the metro orange line so trains were not terribly crowded and we were there for the inauguration. Very limited on places to eat within walking distance. The only place we found was a Lost Dog Cafe which had a good menu and food was tasty and reasonable.

You regular readers of my reviews (I still crack me up) by now have figured out I am a Marriott guy. I travel quite a bit for business and can count on the Courtyards to always be very clean, well maintained, and well suited for me to stay productive. This one is no different.

Now that some road construction is finished nearby, this property is very convenient to anything in the area. If like me you try to take the subways when possible, the Metro station is right across the street. This would be a good place to stay for DC sightseeing - if you haven't been to DC before, you DO want to take the Metro in and out, not drive.

Very big lobby, extra computers in the business center, attentive staff. Enjoy!

As reviewed by other travelers, this hotel is located very close to the metro station, you can park here (free), and ride the subway to tour DC. The rooms are clean and tastefully decorated. The rate in Oct. was very reasonable, however, the rate seemed went time three times for Jan. Overall, very satisfied with our stay.

This hotel was great! The room was very clean and comfortable. We stopped by the desk at least once a day to ask questions and each staff member was helpful, courteous, and professional. The free secured underground parking was very convenient. The Metro station is an easy walk, just a few hundred yards across the street. 30-35 minutes travel time to the Capitol and Smithsonian areas. Great hotel for business travelers. The hotel was running a 50% off special, so we stayed here and used it as a base for visiting DC. I would stay here again for the right price. Otherwise, you can pay a similar price and stay closer to DC.

I stayed here for two weeks for work. The Lobby was very nice looking and is a nice place to meet with your co workers after a long day of work. The rooms were very nice and quite spacious. The location is also quite nice because its right next to the metro.

The hotel is clean and the staff is very friendly. We have stayed here on several occassions while visting DC. It is directly across the street from the Metro, the ride into the tourist areas of DC is about 30 minutes from the Dunn Loring stop, and somewhat close to restraunts and shopping although you will need a car to get there. The prices are usually pretty good but only if booked in advance. Parking at the hotel is in a gated underground lot which is nice. Overall a great home base for exploring the NOVA DC area.
