We stayed in this hotel during our recent east coast road trip, and our stay was fantastic. I chose the location because I know the Courthouse neighborhood well. It's full of restaurants and shops where the locals and visitors alike enjoy all of the nearby conveniences of an urban area. This hotel is only 1 block from the Courthouse Metro station which is on the Orange and Silver lines. From here, you can be at the Smithsonian Metro station on the Mall in a matter of minutes, or anywhere else in D.C. quite quickly, too.
The hotel is fairly new, and resides in a newly constructed building. So, everything here is modern and clean, including the central air conditioning system. You won't have to worry about loud window units here! The bathrooms are also luxurious with spacious countertops and modern conveniences. Our room had a standing shower with plenty of water pressure.
Our room also had a king sized bed as well as a sofa that pulled out into a bed. This was great for our family which needed a little more space. Plenty of storage was provided with drawers and a large wardrobe, too. And of course the room had a TV with plenty of cable channels. Also, it had a mini-fridge, microwave, toiletries, and other features that would be expected from a luxury hotel chain such as Hyatt.
Perhaps the best part of this hotel was the amazing buffet breakfast
that was full of delicious and freshly prepared food. This is not one of those small breakfasts of toast, coffee, and cereal that some hotels provide. Instead, they had various hot items such as fresh eggs, pancakes, sausage, bacon, monkey bread, and more. Fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, and cereal is also provided, as well as a large selection of bread and bagels and a large toaster. Milk and juice options rounded it out. The sitting area in the lobby for the meal was nicely appointed with large TVs for getting the day's news or weather. And the staff was fantastic and very helpful! At the time we stayed the breakfast was free, but they supposedly will start charging for it unless you join the loyalty program. It's worth it; it was delicious and a great start to the day.
Also provided at this hotel is a gym, free Wi-Fi, newspapers, luggage storage, and more. They have valet parking for a fee, or you can park in the secured garage next door for $14 per day.
Overall, this hotel is an excellent choice!
