We stayed here for 2 nights after calling in to see if they had vacancies, with a room on the 11th floor with a great view of the Potomac and planes flying in and out of the National Airport (and a spectular thunderstorm on the 1st night). Rate wasn't cheap but they did throw in free parking (normally have to pay) and it is very well located
Room was large and very comfortable with 2 double beds and LOADS of pillows
There is an hourly courtesy shuttle bus to both the old town and National Airport, while the Metro stop at Braddock Road is only a 15-minute walk away, as is the old town through a safe neighbourhood. There is also a pleasant riverside park neaby plus shops and places for breakfast. The hotal lounge (bar) is pleasant for a drink but we did not eat here.
There is some aircraft noise but not at night, and while there is a railroad siding alongside with level crossings each side of the buidling we only saw (and heard) one train in 2 days.
Overall highly recommended
