This hotel was much better than I expected. I received a nice price through TravelZoo so I was a little worried that this hotel would not be that great. But everything about it was great! The staff was very friendly and helpful. I booked a studio and found it to be very roomy and confortable. It had a really cute kitchen, a large flat-screen TV, dressing room, and bathroom. The bed was extremely comfortable and we also used the pull-out sofabed which wasn't bad either. We only had the continental breakfast one morning and it was about what you would expect. The hotel is only about a ten minute walk to the Metro. They also provide a shuttle which we also used. The location is very good - right next to Arlington Cemetery and the Iwo Jima Memorial. This seemed to be a very safe location as well. We walked back from the Metro after dark a couple of times - it's very well lighted and we didn't have any problems. The hotel also provides a shuttle at 6PM each evening - they drop you off at the Safeway Grocery and return for you at 6:50 - very convenient. I received free parking with the deal through TravelZoo - not sure if this is standard.
