The CLE is a world class education and training facility. The CLE was designed to have the "look and feel" of Washington and frankly I like it. I have never had a bad meal at the CLE. The food is plentiful and good. The audio-visual equipment, acoustics, auditorium, classrooms, breakout rooms, gym, and social areas are excellent. The sleeping rooms... More

I was apprehensive about coming here given the heinous reviews, and perhaps because of them I was pleasantly shocked. I would contrast to the previous reviewer to say that I found the CLE to be more consistently comfortable and pleasant than most "approved" hotels I find myself staying in for business. The Benchmark Hospitality staff are exceedingly helpful and gracious;... More

Okay, so yes, it is a bit like be imprisoned, and yes, I was intercepted by the guards when I tried to go for a walk on the trails after dark, but as a hotel, this place is about as average as they come... Not a wonderful luxury hotel (as we occasionally experience as LM employees attending conferences), but as... More

With a sterile atmosphere that would make a morgue proud, I have to confess that this place is less fun than a Pyongyang bar on at wet Wednesday night in February. A stay here is a bit like self immolation, initially interesting (I wonder how far I can get down the jogging trail past 5 pm before I get turned... More

I literally spit Coke on my keyboard when I read the "minimum security prison" review, and had to add my own thoughts. I was stuck at the CLE for 6 days of "indoctrination" and felt like I had just checked into a cult! If the prominent "architectural water feature" didn't give it away, the fact that you couldn't go 10... More

Restricted web access, no facilities on the weekend (e.g. food, exercise, etc.). It's the greatest white-elephant Lockheed has thought up yet. Lucky LM employees who are forced to stay there even if other hotels are closer to their business needs, better, and a lot cheaper.
