The hotel was great for the price. It's quiet, yet transportation was easy. The hotel has a free shuttle that will take you to several locations close that are of interest, including the Metro. There are the city buses with a stop at the hotel, and there is the Yellow Circulator bus, which stops on 35th at WI, which is only about 40' further than the regular city buses. The Circulator is fabulous. It only costs $1. And it will take you to the Foggy Bottom Metro Station and within 3 or 4 blocks of the Mall. The hotel staff was also extremely friendly and helpful. On my 3rd morning there, TG, one of the waitresses in the hotel restaurant, brought me my tea when she came to take my order for breakfast. She remembered from the previous two days. Amazing! I'd highly recommend it. If I had a complaint, the only one would be that their bath towels are not very soft. Minor complaint in my book.
