The layout of the room is indeed a bit odd, but it didn't bother us at all. Being that it was just my wife and I, we did not mind that your privacy in the shower/restroom is limited by the sliding doors with no locks. The breakfast was spectacular, and the staff were all top notch. We couldn't get over how clean the facilities were, and how nice the hotel staff was. There was a particularly friendly gentlemen that we dealt with on a couple of occasions that was without a doubt the nicest, and friendliest person we met the entire trip. At one point we were low on toilet paper, we asked this gentlemen at the front desk if we could get some, they literally took off in a sprint to get us what we needed. It is very close to a metro stop, and right off of many of the main roads that feed into DC. My wife will have a hard time trying to talk me into staying anywhere else when we go back to DC in the future. Again, these rooms are extremely clean and modern, especially for the price we paid! Did I mention that I slept GREAT?
