We needed a suite to accomodate 5 runners for the Marine Corps Marathon and couldn't have been more pleased with this hotel. The breakfast is top notch and is served till almost 10:00am. The free shuttle to metro station ran on the hour and was very convenient and the drivers were very courteous. The staff was friendly and helpful and we really liked our room even though 5 people can be snug. I liked the extra little touches like the kitchen, full fridge and dishes and appliances. The hot tub was not working and that would have been nice to use after the marathon, but it is what it is...I would highly recommend this location as it is close enough to Old Town that you can cab it for $15-20 or drive easily. We were fortunate to have a rental car. The area around the hotel is a little bit sketchy, but as long as you're not out walking at night alone, I felt perfectly safe. There is also a McDonalds right across the street if you're looking for a slightly better coffee :) All in all, I would highly recommend this suite for long term stay or for groups who want to get a great rate they can split.
