The Courtyard by Marriott, next to the New York Avenue/Florida Avenue/Gallaudet U Metro Station, is slated to open this April. It appears that it will referred as the “U.S. Capitol” location:

Courtyard Washington, DC/U.S. Capitol

This is a chain for business travelers and will feature hotel rooms with couches and large desks.  For a sampling of the rates, a weekend stay in July–without any discounts–ranges from $109 (King with sofabed) to $139 (King/2 room suite) a night.

There are two restaurants inside for guests and the public:  Au Bon Pain (European-style sandwich cafe chain also serving pastries) and their own restaurant, the Courtyard Bistro (breakfast, dinner, and COCKTAILS).

Here is the photo tour.
