PROS: close by DC; always available coffee; ample parking; close by different fast food places; McDonalds directly across; fireplace; 2 LCD TVs and DVD player; good selection for breakfast(daily) and dinner (M-Th). Spa, laundry room with 2 washers and dryers, exercise room with 2 treadmills and 1 elliptical, free weights, 2 benches, mirror, water dispenser and towels and TV; billiard table by the lobby area.
CONS: smaller than other Homewood Suites; only 2 elevators near lobby; no elevators on end caps of building ; No welcome water or cookies for silver Hhonors members; Constant traffic on Leesburg Pike; outdoor pool; smoking 1st floor; narrow hallways; tired looking carpet. Thin insulation; inconsistent quality of housekeeping.
TIPS: do not get a room facing King’s st/Leesburg Pike- it is a very busy and noisy road; best rooms would be the ones facing the pool – all you will probably hear are birds. Clients need to know you can use stop light at Hampton Inn to get back to 395 south. You should make this hotel 100% non-smoking as we could even smell the acrid stench of cigarette smoke from the 5th floor due to whoever was using the elevator or from the housekeeper's supply room in the 5th floor. The last thing you want to have happen also would be to work out in the gym downstairs or do laundry or come from the hot spa and get embraced by the stench of cigarette smoke. The gym, laundry room and spa are in the smoking floor.
