We have stayed here several times before and thought the rooms were getting rather tired looking. They've been renovating, and say they are almost done. The room we had this time was in a newly developed addition, where the old restaurant was, I believe. We had a "King Studio" (less expensive than the traditional suites). To get to these new rooms, you go through the atrium and use the Parking Elevator to go up a floor. We had a room near the new Fitness Center. It faced the Alexandria side of the hotel and was very quiet - almost no street noise, and the room is near the end of the hall. We never saw or heard anyone else in the hallway, although the hotel was rather full. This studio configuration had only one room, but it did have a sitting area and an area with the typical microwave/refrigerator/sink. Everything was new and tastefully decorated. There were plenty of plugs and a nice flat-screen TV. Note, however, that there was only one TV, and it was rather difficult to see from the sofa. All the staff members we encountered were pleasant and professional. The lady who made the breakfast omelets was good at cooking your order exactly as requested. By the way, the Fitness Center is very large and has a lot of equipment, but we didn't see many people using it. It is a bit hidden away from the main hotel but definitely looked worth checking out. As always, our favorite thing about this hotel is the location. We fly into Reagan Airport and take the Metro two stops. When you exit at the Old Town/King St Station, the hotel is almost right across the street. Nice neighborhood. They also have a shuttle that will take you short distances. We always look forward to staying here, and will definitely use this hotel again.
