I stayed 4 nights for a conference. My room was clean. It had 2 full sized beds and a refrigerator. There is a Giant grocery store 2 blocks away, so it was nice to have the refrigerator. There are several restaurants within walking distance.
There is a free shuttle to King Street and the airport. The King Street shuttle runs every hour, and the airport shuttle every 30 minutes. The King Street shuttle drops you off 14 blocks from the King Street Metro stop. There is a free trolly that runs along King Street that you can take to the Metro. When we arrived at the airport, we called for a shuttle and were waiting with a large group who were attending the conference. When the shuttle arrived, what appeared to be a large family with no luggage jumped on the shuttle and there was not enough room for 3 of us who had been waiting longer. Thankfully, the hotel did send a second shuttle for us. We later learned that guests will get off the Metro at the airport and catch the airport shuttle rather than navigating King Street.
Unfortunately, the shutle stops at 10:30, and the area restaurants and hotel restaurant all close by 10pm. The front desk staff do have menus for restaurants that will deliver to the hotel.
For the money, I think I would choose a hotel with a better location.
