I had not stayed in a Courtyard for many years so I was anxious to see how the recent chain-wide upgrades have turned out. I was not disappointed.
I had a large room on the eighth floor with a nice view of the artificial lake (and, unfortunately, the highways). The location is good for me when travelling to Washington for business. I drive approximately 10 minutes to the Shady Grove Metro station for my trip to the city.
The hotel is located in a pleasant complex of shops, restaurants, cinema, and health club. The restaurants have a wide variety. The shops are standard, but be sure to check out the 2-storey Target with an escalator for your shopping cart. I love the variety of restaurants and hope to try more of them on my next visit.
I have two minor complaints. The first is that the breakfast does not start early enough. I had to be in DC by 7:30 AM, which means I had to leave the hotel before the breakfast was available. I had to settle for a cup of coffee and danish in Metro Center. The other minor complaint is that I could not find the business center and didn't have time to ask where it was. I needed to have something printed as I was leaving for a meeting I was attending, I ended up calling a colleague to have her print it and bring it to the meeting.
All-in-all, however, I had a good stay and would stay here again.
