My husband and I travel often and were very pleased with this Hotel. We arrived early and had NO PROBLEM checking in at 11AM. We were so happy they accomodated us. The staff were amazing. Extremely helpful when it came to directions, restaurant suggestions and hailing cabs for us. Each and everyone of them were extremely friendly and courteous. Professional but outgoing. In many of hotels that we have stayed in over the years the staff were professional but they don't engage in much conversation. All business. The rooms were always clean and the bed and pillows were one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on. Each day we left the housekeeper a tip, like we do in any hotel we stay in. As we were walking back to our room one day, our housekeeper said, "Thank you so much for the tips" We looked at her with a surprised look and she said, you are in room 1010 right? Thank you so much! Wow, never had a housekeeper actually say thank you before. I think her name was Maria. The location was great in my opinion. A couple of blocks from the metro and walking distance to the the Memorials. Two stops on the metro and you are at Arlington Cemetary, three stops and you are at the Pentagon. Great restaurants walking distance too! Totally recommend!!
