At this hotel we started our 3 weeks road-trip from Washington to Boston. First of all I'd like to point out that it already was a challenge to find the hotel loaded with bags and suitcases. Perhaps the hotel could communicate, when booking a room, that there is a shuttle-service from central station to the hotel. Anyway, when we finally arrived at the hotel, it didn't look very welcoming from the outside, but once inside there was a beautiful lobby with friendly personnel. We got a room at the side of the railway, and also our airco-system was rather noisy, but with good earplugs I didn't have any problem sleeping through the noise :-).
The hotel room and bathroom were very large and clean, the bed was comfy. And the receptionist called us half an hour after arrival at the room to check if the room met our expectations. The main attraction during breakfast were the waffles you could bake yourself, furthermore they had great coffee, so breakfast was ok but rather basic.
As I said before, the hotel has a shuttle service that brings you from and to central station, but do make sure you catch the shuttle on time as the seats are limited (check departure times with the receptionist!).
The hotel offers free use of a computer in a separate room at the reception desk (you need your room badge to get in) and free use of some fitness training equipment.
When checking out I found personnel being less friendly compared to when we checked in. But overall I was happy to start our first four nights in the US in this hotel.
