We stayed at this hotel at the recommendation of a good friend. The hotel itself is decently clean and the front desk was quite friendly. The shuttle driver was nice. The hotel is located a short walk away from Crystal City shopping area and the metro system. My main two complaints are this:
1. The hotel had a mildewed smell in the hallway on the 2nd floor. That smell was being masked by some sort of perfume smell. The odor was obnoxious. I had a terrible headache the entire time we were there which was followed by vomiting. Thankfully, my husband was able to get to the convenience store to get something for my headache and my nausea/vomiting.
2. Whenever someone in the hotel took a shower, we could hear it in our room as if they were showering in our bathroom. The plumbing needs some serious updating.
What made the stay tolerable was the shuttle service, the free wifi, and the continental breakfast. As I mentioned earlier, the rooms are clean and the front desk people were very nice, however, unless some changes are made we will not stay at this hotel again.
