I agree with another reviewer who said it’s in an odd location and I was disappointed there weren’t better dining options nearby. However, the close proximity to the NoMa-Gallaudet Metro Station makes it easy to get around. My only complaint is that I would have liked better lighting in the bathroom when I was applying my makeup. That's a common...

I want to start by saying the staff here is one of the friendliest and most helpful you will find anywhere. Really good group of people. The pro's (or pro) to this hotel is also probably one of the bigger con's and that is there is a Metro station right next door. Unfortunately that also means (depending on your room...

First off this hotel is built over a train track. This is handy for getting in to town. But as a light sleeper who had jet lag on a business trip it meant I averaged 4 hours sleep a night when the trains stopped. On arriving at the hotel at 10.30pm on a Monday night I was told the hotel...

Good Evening Lucilu2013, Let me begin by apologizing again for the terrible inconvenience we caused due to your relocation to another property the first night of your stay. As discussed, this situation did occur due to unexpected stay-overs that we had not foreseen and did leave us short on rooms that evening. This situation is never ideal and I can...

I tagged along with my boyfriend to this hotel for his work conference. Upon arriving we noticed that we were right on the Metro line which was super convenient. The other thing we noticed is that there is nothing around us as far as nightlife or weekend life. We were told that we shouldn't be walking on the streets alone...

I loved the clean large rooms at the this Courtyard. I had a king room and there was plenty of space. The bathroom had a large vanity and new glass doors for the shower which I really appreciated. It is a bit noisy here and they provided ear plugs acknowledging in advance that it is noisy. When you arrive at...

I had to get dinner at the hotel on my arrival, which usually is not a good idea. I was pleasantly surprised with the variety and quality of the menu items. The bar and dining area were quite full attesting to the quality. Great offerings for a hotel!

Went there for the weekend, the room is a bit small. I didn't have a real view except for the view of the street down below. It is literally right next to the red line metro. The staff was very friendly, the food was ok.

“Rooms facing 2nd Street are good - quieter - lobby is on the second floor.”
