“Very comfortable, convenient and clean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

We have stayed at this location several times. It is very clean and conveniently located, right near the metro. There is a washer and dryer for guests to use which is very convenient as well. There are many restaurants close by too.

Room Tip: King rooms are set up differently than a standard room. Your a TV is to the right of the bed, not i...

Thank you for your wonderful review. Inn addition to the restaurants already near us, we are expecting more to open within the next 6 months as well as a new Harris Teeter grocery store right across the street.

I've stayed at this hotel many times and am always satisfied. Rooms are clean and modern and the Bistro seems a cut above most Courtyards.

This hotel is a 3 minute walk from the Dunn Loring Metro (you can see the Metro from the hotel) which is nice but if you need a car there are two zipcar locations as close as the Metro.

We are 2 adults, 45+55 traveling on business with a side of pleasure.

Very easy to get to off 495. Plenty of free secure underground parking. Infact i will say up front a very secure building, with your room key needed to enter building from all directions except the main entrance. Quick check in. all the normal amenities of a courtyard. We were extra impressed with the new huge gorgeous lobby and it seemed everyone felt the same...it was the most active lobby i have ever seen. There is an outside fenced in patio area but no smoking for those who wonder.

The room was typical but i give extra bonus for the impressive shower here. Deep tup with an extra marble seat inside...great pressure and very clean. I always take a bath so i can see the low spot---if they REALLY clean and they did. Nice big vanity and plenty of hooks for towels and robes etc. Awesome big deck with sliding doors which we love BUT no patio furniture--very odd. Bed clean and very comphy, better than most.

Big bonus is, exactly 1 block down is the light rail, super cheap and very easy to use. We made into city center in exactly 30 minutes....so if you wanna see the sites, have a drink and not pay 20-30 bucks for parking and traffic this is the best!

I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is D.C. for business or pleasure and you will save at least $100+ a night (more food and wine for me!)

Room Tip: there is construction across the one street so you can ask not to be facing that way.

Spent a lovely 5 days here. Very convenient location to enjoy the many sights of the area. What made this stay so enjoyable though was the absolutely wonderful staff that were on duty when we were there. They were knowledgeable about local attractions, places to eat, gave good directions, and were pleasant at all times. The room was lovely, well appointed, and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room with a balcony! It was lovely!

Stayed here in August 2013 as first part of our road trip around Washington/ Virginia. Metro is 5min walk away and about 45min in to downtown DC, rooms were very nice, bed was comfortable and all the staff we met were very pleasant. I would stay here again if we go back to DC

I went there to have a look as my friends are coming on 10/14/13 to visit me and they asked me to make reservation for them. It is very nice. I like it a lot. So I made reservation there for my friends. It is just next to the metro station. So convenient.

I really enjoyed spending a long weekend here while visiting in the area. Since I was dividing my time between downtown DC and hanging out with friends in Fairfax, this was the perfect choice since the Metro station is only a short walk up the block and Fairfax is just a few minutes drive away. It's a nicely designed hotel, clean and updated. The entire staff is very friendly yet professional, my room was comfortable & well taken care of by housekeeping throughout my stay and breakfast was freshly prepared and tasty. Dinner selections are limited but the service is friendly and happy hour prices at the bar are nice. I also appreciated parking in the secure garage under the hotel. The business center is well appointed with multiple computers and there is a separate dedicated station just for printing boarding passes. I'll definitely stay again.
