I stayed here while on a ten day business trip in Washington DC. It appears that the hotel has recently undergone a renovation in many of the common areas such as the lobby. As a result, all the common areas are very nice and in excellent condition. The bar area is also very nice. While the rooms are nice, they are a little dated. The bathroom is particularly small and there is no fan vent; therefore, the mirror always fogs up while using the shower. The rooms are still very good, though, and the beds and pillows were comfortable. There is a daily internet fee for room access and it's approximately $13 per day. I've recently stayed at the Marriott Residence Inn and the Embassy Suites, both just up the street, and there was no fee for the internet in either of these hotels. The exercise room in this hotel is one of the best I've ever used in a hotel. I used it eight out of the ten days during my stay. The location is excellent. The hotel elevator goes straight down to the Crystal City Shops where there are a wide variety of restaurants and other shops. The Metro is a five minute walk, which will take you anywhere in the Washington DC area and the airport is a five minute drive. Overall, a very good hotel that I recommend as a lodging option in this area.
