I was going to DC for a business trip and decided to head up early with my college age son who was on break for a bit of site seeing. So I wasn't looking for anything fancy or special, just a nice place to stay that didn't cost too much that was close to a metro. And we loved it... I didn't realize it was only blocks away from the Iwo Jima Memorial until we got there. The shuttle over to the metro each morning made it nice. The folks working the desk were always professional and nice. I had a favorite in the Arlington area for personal travel that I had always stayed at before but their rates were ridiculous for the time we were coming over. This was in the price range I was hoping for and it exceeded my expectations. Thanks Virginian Suites!
