This hotel is a perfect choice for visiting DC if you don't want to pay inflated prices. A free shuttle runs every half hour and drops you off at the King Street Metro station (Metro and Amtrak), which provides you access to anywhere in the greater DC area via rail for $14/day. The National Mall is about 1 hour away from the hotel lobby when traveling by shuttle and Metro.
The staff is both attentive and professional. The rooms are contemporary, and typical in size when compared to other moderately priced hotel chains. Free wifi is provided throughout the hotel. The fitness center and outdoor pool are adequate, however, the pool is a bit on the small side and closes at 9pm. Breakfast is included, and includes eggs, meat, waffles, bread, oatmeal, cereal, etc. A 24-hour coffee station includes fruit, cookies, tea, etc. This property is also a two-minute drive to shopping and restaurants.
We would definitely stay here again when visiting Washington, D.C.
