Lets face it - there are tons of hotels out there and it is tedious to research the reviews of various hotels. I know because I researched hotels for several weeks and chose this one from among many because of the consistently good reviews. Our stay was superb - absolutely no complaints. The value is great for a hotel near Old Towne and D.C. when one compares the exceptional quality of the rooms, customer service, free shuttle, free wifi and free hot breakfast. The selling point for us was the free shuttle to and from Huntington Metro. The hotel shuttle stops at a certain time in the night so you need to ask the hours of service to ensure that you arrive on time at the Metro otherwise the trip back to the hotel is $10 with a taxi. My kids made use of the sauna and pool next door (hotel arrangement with Homewood Suites). We loved Old Towne. When you get off at the King Street Old Towne Metro stop, there is a free trolley along King Street (it makes various stops) to the waterfront or you can use a free transfer with the Dash bus. It is best to start off at the Visitors Centre and purchase a Key to the City which is a coupon book filled with discounts for restaurants etc. and free access to the historical sites. Another great Metro stop is Arlington Cemetery (5 minute walk to cemetery) and Pentagon City where the stop leads into the shopping centre - fantastic shopping. We loved Nando's Chicken on King Street and Pentagon City for eating the flame grilled peri-peri chicken. P.S.: special mention must be made of David (maintenance) and Nancy (breakfast). They both worked tirelessly to please us during our stay. We will definitely return.
