I would definitely stay here again, although I’m not a fan of cities, and $220 seems an absurd price for a Thursday night room (it dropped by about half for the weekend). Otherwise, this Courtyard made me about as comfortable as I could be so close to D.C. congestion. I also dislike parking in underground caverns, but I realize that’s pretty much unavoidable in cities, and I never felt unsafe.
The room was a little small but very well-appointed, including good photography on the walls. The friendly, competent clerk who checked us in (we joked about being Geminis—I never got her name) offered a view of Wisconsin Ave. or a quieter view of basically nothing on the other side of the hotel. We took Wisconsin Ave., and from the ninth floor, I heard zero street noise, plus having those miniature cars and people far below to look at. The sofa, the mattress, the wireless internet, and the flat-screen TV were all good. The in-room coffee was stronger (the way I like it) and more flavorful than the stuff I find in most lodging.
The most pleasant surprise was the good food and service in the hotel restaurant. In two meals there, we had omelets, salads, the club sandwich, a burger, and chicken parmesan with fettucine; all were very good and reasonably priced by city standards. If you’re tired from travel and commotion, you can have a very decent, quiet meal without leaving the hotel.
