“Great hotel for a budget trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

I booked this hotel two months ago for a three day weekend for work. I chose this hotel because of the snack kitchen, hot tub, breakfast, shuttle and pool. When I got there I learned the hot tub and pool are no longer in use and that they are no longer stocking the snack kitchen. I was extremely disappointed that the hotel no longer had these amenities because I was excited about them. On a positive note, the shuttle was very convenient and the continental breakfast was fabulous. The rooms also have thin walls, someone across the hall had a cough and I heard him coughing all night. Another thing that I found odd is that the only toiletry that came with the room other then the soap was a tiny bottle of conditioning shampoo. Overall I was disappointed because the amenities listed on the website were no longer at the hotel, but I WOULD STAY AGAIN because it was still a good value especially with the free parking. I also found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating.

Staff were very friendly & helpful......free shuttle service to DCA & Metro Station & the rooms were nice & very clean w/comfortable beds & a flat screen TV. They offer a complimentary breakfast as well, but I chose to sleep-in & skip breakfast. There is also a supermarket w/in walking distance. Would definitely stay here again on my next trip to the DC area!!!!!!

Room Tip: Try & get a room on the 1st floor, as there is no elevator, but the shuttle driver offered to ta...
