My wife, sister-in-law & I stayed at this hotel on the Washington DC leg of our NYC/DC trip and WOW! was this a step up from our NYC hotel. In fact, a couple of steps up. All our dealings with the hotel were seamless, from booking online via their website, to checking in & out. True value for money.
After the hustle to get the bus in NYC & then the 4 hour journey, it was such a pleasure to be greeted with smiles as we approached the front desk. In fact, every staff member we encountered was friendly & greeted us with a smile. As we entered our room we were pleasantly surprised at the size & cleanliness of it. It was more of an apartment than a room (made our NYC room look like a walk-in closet). It included a fully-fitted kitchenette (which included a microwave, full size fridge, utensils, stove, dishwasher, coffee machine, etc), a lounge with a big sleeper couch, dining table, desk & TV, a room with a very comfortable double bed, TV, a nice well-lit vanity area, enough closet space & a bath/shower combo in the bathroom.
The FREE breakfast buffet was absolutely scrumptious. They have a wide variety of foods such as, scrambled eggs, burritos, potatoes, yoghurts, fresh fruit, tea, coffee, breads, etc. One of the highlights of our stay was the FREE themed dinner they offer 3 nights of the week (Hey, after 8 days of buying take-out a free dinner is a highlight in my books). The Monday night theme was Mexican and tasted divine.
Traveling to & from the hotel was an absolute breeze as the Rosslyn Metro is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel's location is excellent as you can be touring DC's major sites within minutes of leaving your hotel room. Less traveling means more sightseeing & because we were only in DC for 2 days this helped a lot. When we arrived in DC, by bus, we took a cab to the hotel only to find out that it would've cost us much less taking the train. You live & learn, right :) We were able to catch a bus to Dulles airport right outside the station as well.
As my title says, "An all-round fantastic hotel."
We'll definitely stay here again when returning to DC one day.
