we were "upgraded" to a suite on the 7th floor. it was a little noisy (traffic) and not the most luxurious. the free breakfast was basic but adequate. the hotel was spotless throughout. the suite was quite roomy -- as was the shower (no tub, which was fine with us). we had a microwave and mini-fridge. staff were uniformly helpful....

Three of us stayed here July 16th to 20th, 2014. We enjoyed our stay. We had a room with two queen beds, microwave and refrigerator. It was very clean and the beds slept well. They served a good breakfast in the morning, with eating indoors or outside. They also have a snack bar in the afternoon and night, which we... More

Our stay (3 nights) was great!!! Location of hotel can't be beat for going into the city everyday! Shuttle rides to metro are quick and drop off pick up service was awesome a real bonus!

Mike, Please accept my apology for any communication confusion that occurred during your check in or subsequently; but we did not have any rooms with two beds available when you checked into the hotel.

I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. My first thought was that location was not good, kind of shoehorned in off the highway. There was no easy way to walk to the metro or to walk anywhere really. However the shuttle service from the hotel to the metro was top notch, the drivers really gave 110% to get you to... More

We stayed here for our first trip to DC. I was delighted by our room - it was a true actual suite with a door between our room and the kid's room! Hooray! Upon walking into the room there is a small bathroom (with toilet/sink). Beyond the bathroom is a room with a pull-out couch, desk, chair, TV and fridge... More

Maintenance is lacking. Our room door would not open without kicking it. Only one elevator was working for at least 12 hours without the front desk being aware, resulting in a long line of guests after breakfast waiting to get on, indeed out into the lobby in full view of the front desk personnel who did nothing about it until...

Katharine, Please accept my apology for the problems you experienced with the door to the room you were assigned and the issue with one of our elevators.

I have to agree with many other reviews in that this is the best Choice family hotel I've ever stayed at. I was lucky enough to have a true suite with separate bedroom and living room, was perfectly clean and Wi-Fi was fast enough to get some work done. Staff was polite and check-in/check-out was perfect. Breakfast offering was excellent... More
