In DC it's important to have the right credentials. Consider this Escape, then, your all-access pass to unlocking all that our nation's capital has to offer with an overnight stay for two in a standard room, Fridays and Saturdays ($169) or Sundays through Thursdays ($269), in the newly renovated Courtyard by Marriott Washington Convention Center, right in the heart of the Federal City.
Airy and contemporary, this hotel increases not only your proximity to power but it also provides an impressive list of perks including a bottle of wine and a fruit-and-cheese platter upon arrival, breakfast for two, parking for one vehicle, and a complimentary upgrade based on availability. Custom comforters, high-speed Internet access, and in-room refrigerators provide you with the codes for comfort.
Step out of the motorcade--a stay at Courtyard by Marriott Washington Convention Center puts you within walking distance of sites like Ford's Theatre and the Verizon Center. A host of shops and restaurants like Gordon Biersch and Carmine's are easily at your fingertips.
"No stranger to the world's gaze, DC is a proud and complicated city (politics makes it so) of grand boulevards, iconic monuments, and idyllic vistas over the Potomac," says Lonely Planet. "Its museums and historic sites bear tribute to both the beauty and the horror of years past, and on even a short visit, you can delve into the world of Americana--from moving artwork by Native American painters to memorable moonwalks."
After a full day--and night--of executive escapades, enjoy an included breakfast for two in The Bistro, located inside the hotel. Trade in fresh strawberries and French toast instead of stocks and bonds in this restaurant that used to house the Riggs Bank vault.
All parties agree: An Escape to our nation's capital is not only a must on your entertainment agenda--it may very well be your civic duty.
