“Great weekend getaway location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights while visiting our daughter in DC. Convenient to a Metro station (only 2 blocks) and easy parking. Room was clean and spacious, looked out over 395 and the Pentagon. Full breakfast included each morning . . but we weren't here for any evenings with a manager's reception. Clean kitchen facilities, including fridge, stove, MW, and swivel tv for sofa or bed viewing. Received a notice that all mattresses were going to be checked for possible defective boxsprings, but we had no problems. Might be nice to have wall bars in the shower/tub for safety. We'd stay here again on another visit!

Room Tip: Choose one on a higher floor for better city views (even though waits for elevators might be a littl...

Stayed here for one week with my family. This hotel is very conveniently located, about 3 blocks from metro station. The hotel provides a shuttle to and from this station, plus other locations as well. Plenty of stores, restaurants, supermarket and entertainment in the vicinity.
The hotel staff is helpful and friendly. This hotel provides free breakfast every day, which is a great value, specially when travelling with the family.

Thanks for your review. I'm glad that you were able to explore our local area and that you shared with TripAdvisor. There is so much to do within just three blocks of us, from the mall, dozens of restaurants, two monuments, and two museums, without even needing to get on the metro or in your car. Thanks for sharing.

Stayed here for business. A nice RI than the usual ones. Rooms are clean and spacious. Make sure you get one opposite the 395/Pentagon side. Although it might be a nice view you could hear traffic from the highway. Stay on the other side much quieter.

Managers reception was hit or miss. You get a three drink limit. They write it on the back of a little card you are given at check in. I guess the days of unlimited drinks has come to an end.

Breakfast is the usual fare for RIs. Nothing exciting but it does the job.

Parking onsite is 23 dollars a nite. Find that a bit much. You can park on the side of the hotel for free before 8am and after 6pm. if in between those hours the most it will cost is 12. so much better deal.

There is a shuttle to the airport but it will stop at other hotels.

Good location and you can walk comfortably to the Pentagon City Mall where there is a metro and plenty of food choices.

Would stay again. Good place and convenient.

Room Tip: Away from highway/pentagon side.

The 2-bedroom suite we were assigned was perfect for our family of four - parents in one bedroom, kids in the other, with a bathroom adjoining each one. Complete kitchen facilities in the unit allowed us to avoid eating some meals in restaurants, saving money. Location of hotel is good, near stores and a subway stop. They also offer a free shuttle that will drop off/pick up within one mile of the hotel for any need we had, which we used often and really appreciated. Breakfast is included for all guests - it was average, but well stocked by cheerful and helpful attendants. Only suggestion would be for a 24-hour coffee station in the lobby. This would be much more convenient than making it in your room. Overall, would definitely stay here again when in the Washington, DC area.

Room Tip: 2 bedroom suites are perfect for families. Use Marriott Reward points to pay for or upgrade to this...

We had a very pleasant three day stay here end of September. Our room overlooked the Pentagon, and was clean, well-equipped and spacious. The Pentagon City mall and Metro stop is a 5 minute walk, and it takes just 5 minutes from there into the the centre of the government area of Washington. There is also a supermarket for food 2 blocks away, and the room was perfect for
preparing and eating meals. Only negative was the lack of a kettle - we were told that these were not available. No major problem, just a bit surprising.The breakfast buffet was excellent.
Highly recommended as an alternative to staying in the more expensive downtown area.

Room Tip: High up, overlooking the Pentagon.

Thank you for your feedback. I agree that our location is perfect for work or play in the DC area. I have shared your comment about the kettle, and we are looking to have a supply on hand for requests in the future.

Staff was friendly and was ready to help with whatever our needs were. Hotel was clean including room, lobby and pool area. Easy to get to wherever you want to go in the Washington area. Had a great view of the Pentagon, Washington monument and the Air Force memorial. Will definitely be back. Thanks for the wonderful stay.

I went in October 2013 with 2 of my grandkids - we were in a 2 bed suite with a sofa bed, lots of room for the 3 of us. This wasn't my first choice but the package price on Orbitz was too good to pass up - and I am so happy I chose it! The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet was phenomenal - every day a new twist to the selections. We were only there for one of the dinner buffets but it was just as nice. Close to the Metro, in a safe neighborhood. For being so close to the airport, I didn't notice airplane noise. I had a car to go to non-Metro sites (we didn't know how long the gov't shutdown would last), if you can get there by Metro don't rent a car - plus parking at the hotel was $21/day, but in a very secure underground garage. Everything was clean and updated. We didn't take advantage of the kitchenette, but if you are staying for any length of time it had everything you need. The indoor pool wasn't very large, the fitness center was great - but we didn't spend much time in either. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!!

Room Tip: We were on the 6th floor on the "Pentagon side". Can't say anything about the other f...
