Courtyard Marriott Chevy Chase, Maryland
My only complaint, instead of a shower, I wish I had a bath tub to soak my tired weary bones after along day of exploring Washington, D.C.
My room was perfect to relax after a hard days outing. Nice size TV screen, big bed, sitting area, mini fridge, coffee pot. It was always kept clean.
Tip. The lobby has free coffee and tea. If you don’t like powdered cream that’s in the room then snatch some real creamers from the lobby and store in your fridge.
I had a couple of warm nights to enjoy a glass of wine in their courtyard. There is also a swimming pool one floor up but it wasn’t going to be open until Memorial Day.
The hotel provides free WIFI. Also in the lobby are some computers also free to use.
The Bistro, off the side of the lobby, provides breakfast, lunch and dinner. Check for hours.
To make it easier and affordable, I used Super Shuttle to get from and to Dulles airport (which is approx. 45 to 60 min.). I was charged $29.00 each way to and from my hotel. There is cheaper way with buses from the airport getting to the metro station then taking the metro here but I was glad to have had the shuttle as it was pouring when I landed in D.C. (http://www.supershuttle.com/)
The hotel is three blocks from the metro station. The stop used for this area is called Friendship Heights.
There are plenty of restaurants around. The hotel has a small map of where restaurants are located.
I ate at Panera Bread on Willard Ave (about two blocks from hotel) a couple of times. It’s not too expensive. I had the French Onion soup twice, once with salad and once with a half sandwich (they have a soup/salad or sandwich deal). Inside is a fireplace. Came in handy for a couple of cool days. I sat by the window watching the world go by. Bread is made fresh daily here. Unsold good are donated to community organizations at the end of each day.
Treat yourself to a delicious cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory. The selection is mind boggling to choose from. Of course, they do serve other eats such has salads, soups, pastas. I sat outside on a warm evening watching the world go by.
For cheap eats, there’s McDonalds across from the Metro. I ate one morning for breakfast. It was nice and clean.
A couple of times I picked up some pastries from Karin’s Cafe Bloom’y Florist, which was about a block from the metro. Great with my morning coffee in the room.
For the metro, I bought a SmarTrip card at CVS Pharmacy. It also can be purchased at Giant and Safeway (two of which I couldn’t find) also Metro Centre, one of the main transfer points for the metro. The card itself costs $5.00 plus a $5.00 travel value. Inside each metro station are machines to top up the value of the card. The card can also be used on city buses and DC Circulator. The metro is easy to use. Get yourself a metro map and a map of Washington, D.C.
