This property is a newer Courtyard, and in excellent condition. The rooms are at the Courtyard by Marriott standard, and the property appears to be well cared for. It is, however, a bit off the beaten path as DC hotels go, and sort of hidden next to the GW campus. The White House and other DC attractions are nearby and easily within walking distance. The nearest DC Metro stations are Farragut North and Foggy Bottom - GW, both are a little less than 1/2 mile away.
This hotel has a lobby restaurant/bar, and there are very many dining options within a 10-15 minute walk. Many, but not all, of the local restaurants cater to the college crowd, and yet it is not difficult to locate a fine dining experience nearby if that is what you are looking for.
The hotel staff can arrange a car and driver if you need to catch a flight out of Reagan National, or need transportation to make a scheduled appointment or event. There is not a line of taxis waiting outside, as is the case with most downtown hotels, so making a prior booking is the best approach if you need to be somewhere at a specified time.
DC is notorious for expensive hotels, and this Courtyard property is not an exception to the rule. The rates can be astronomically high for a Courtyard when DC is busy - which is whenever Congress is in session, and during the various times of the year when hoards of tourists descend upon DC. Even then, the rates will be lower than higher tiered hotels in the downtown or Foggy Bottom areas.
