Clean room and big enough for 3 adults and 2 kids. The free shuttle service (no schdule, just on call) to and from the Metro station (5 minutes away) is definitely the reason to stay here when planning to visit Washing DC. Parking is very expensive downtown $30+ and many express toll zones on the highway makes it difficult to drive, so take the subway downtown; it takes us approx 45 minutes from the hotel to US capitol by subway (Paper ticket cost an extra $1.00 per ticket so buy the plastic refillable fare card for $5.00 if you plan to use the subway for more than 5 trips). Free use of the washer and dryer (no need to put in coins; you can buy the powder detergent and the softner sheet from their machine) is a bonus. There is a Walmart within 3 minutes drive where you can buy take-out and grocery. Applebees, Vietnamese noodle (Pho) are all down the road. Hotel Breakfast close promptly at 9:30 am (they might tell say close at10:00 am but they put away everything including coffee at 9:30 am.). Leesbury Primium outlet is 50 minutes drive away; be sure to print coupon from the hotel computer and printer (2 workstations) before you head out.
