This hotel had several things I like all in one place....indoor pool (but no jacuzzi, darn it), rooms with microwaves and fridges (hard to find in some business hotels), a bar, and a restaurant, room service, airport shuttle, and it was pretty close to most of DC. (I'd planned to go to Raleigh and I couldn't find any hotels with an indoor pool, fridge and microwave, how weird is that?) It also had great access to the metro and was near that pretty little area called Carlysle for a nice walkabout.
ALso on the upside, it had one of the best indoor hotel pools, with lifeguard, I've seen in awhile, twice as big as most, with an 8 ft deep end, and water temp was great.
On the downside, the restaurant organization could use some work. That was their real weak point. The staff all was working hard but service was chaotic and orders were wrong. I sort of thought I was in Fawlty Towers for meals. It was a little better off-peak hours, thank heavens, but that really needs work.
