Excellent location for business travelers and families visiting the DC area – this hotel has everything you need. Stayed here about 4 years ago and decided to use it again during a week-long business trip - now I’ll put it high on my list of choices for return trips to DC. The whole hotel has been renovated – the rooms are fresh, modern & very functional - perfect for the business traveler. If you want to eat in, the kitchen has everything you need to prepare your own meals. If you prefer to eat out – lots of great restaurants are less than a 10 minute walk away. There is a shopping Mall and a Metro stop a couple of blocks away – so all of your shopping and transportation needs are only minutes away. Very good free breakfast buffet, evening social and WiFi access are included with the room – great benefits. Front desk was very helpful with directions and service; look forward to return visits.
