Great location and a very up to date hotel - the staff was friendly and helpful and we even checked in early - freezing cold outside that evening and the wind was howling - I stopped at the front desk and asked if we could get a taxi - Lexi much to my surprise ran across the road over to... More

As others have said - this place has been recently redone. Loved the extra large shower and the atrium. I travel a lot for work and this has been the best service I have received - EVER.

It was nice. It appears to have been recently renovated or refurnished. The hotel is very close to a large mall (shares its parking lot with the Fair Oaks mall). Another option would be the Hyatt at Fair Lakes. While the location is not as close to a mall, it is slightly taller and higher-up rooms offer sweeping views. The... More

I am reversing my earlier 2014 review to highly reco. The miamiesque fire wall is chic. Service people were awesome. Check in person greets you and comes around counter to escort you to elevators.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights and we were very happy with the hotel. The room is spacious, especially for people (like us) who travel with several suitcases and love to shop, there ample space to put your belongings and to (re)organize your suitcases (just throw the open on the floor!). On our second day we were... More

We spent New Years' Eve at the hotel as we had a party in the neighborhood and didn't want to drive back to Washington DC after a few drinks. The check-in and check-out proceeded exceedingly well with a very welcoming staff. The restaurant staff was efficient and courteous and the breakfast was tasty, copious and warm. The rooms were clean,... More
