After spending 2 weeks here for work the walls of this small room are closing in. The staff are friendly and bartender Emanuel is awesome. The dryer in the laundry stayed tore up most of my visit so my room looked like Fu manchu's laundry service with stuff hanging everywhere to dry. Overall it was not bad, close to everything,...

Had an amazing time and outstanding staff who were so helpful. Stayed two extra days in DC after a business trip and I could not have chosen a better hotel. Everything in close proximity. Monuments, Capital, White House, Museums, Ford Theatre, China Town, basketball and hockey arena, movies. I could go on. The location was the best, but the staff...

I completely enjoyed staying at the Courtyard DC/U.S. Capitol. Although it is just beyond the Capitol Hill neighborhood, I found it to be really convenient. It is right next door to the NOMA/Galludet metro station, and there are plenty of reasonably priced restaurants within a few blocks. This worked really well for me because I did not have a car....

I greatly enjoyed my stay here. The staff was excellent. I enjoyed the hotels Starbucks restaurant. The egg white fritata was incredible and healthy. Plenty of restaurant choices around and an inexpensive cab ride from the Capitol.

For an inner city hotel, it's very nice. Room was clean and comfortable. Location is convenient to Metro and to downtown. Note also that the indoor pool is very small. I booked via Priceline, and later asked for a room with 2 beds. Was told to call back next day. When I did, I was put on hold for 10-15...

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...

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...
