We stayed here with our 2 teenage sons for 4 nights to sight see in DC and Alexandria. While the location is not really within walking distance of a Metro stop, the shuttle to the Huntington Yellow Line stop was reliable and prompt. All we needed to do was call, and they were there within about 10 minutes. King Street restaurants and shopping were only about a 5 minute drive away as well. The hotel was very clean and had a great modern decor! The staff was friendly and helpful without being overly intrusive. We also used the pool and exercise room which were also very clean. There was even a lifeguard at the pool. We would definitely stay again if in the DC area.
