Full disclosure, I'm a federal worker who used to travel to the DC area often for work related reasons. Since I am not travelling as much, I feel comfortable putting the word out on AKA Virginia Square. The staff is extremely friendly and go out of their way to ensure you are comfortable. I am a pretty self sufficient traveller, so I do not look to be pampered when I travel for business and since AKA is an extended stay hotel you get what amounts to an apartment. I love the layout with the floor to ceiling windows and exposed ducts. Each room comes with its own washer/dryer and separate water heater. I stayed for a month last year. My fiance would come down on weekends so we could spend time together. She fell in love with the room and felt that she would never look at our apartment the same. They have basement parking and are located walking distance from the Metro. The only suggestions I can give is to improve on its feeble gym and offer shuttle service to the surrounding areas that are outside of walking distance such as the mall and the Foreign Service Institute, given how many Federal employees use the facility. These are minor inconveniences compared to the quality of the rooms and staff.
