Once a year, I spend a couple of nights at the Highlander while I am at NSF HQ. I don't need fancy places. I'm on my own, I need to get work done, I need a quiet, comfortable, non-smoking room, strong wifi connectivity, a spacious desk, a hot shower, some food outlets in proximity (El Pollo Rico -- yum!; 7-11, a hamburger place literally outside), and I need a budget price. I get all that and more at Highlander. Oh, and there's a huge screen in the room (I guess it's a TV, but I never switch it on). And there's a continental breakfast with OJ, coffee, fresh fruit, and a selection of fresh pastries. All this, at a convenient walking distance from Metro (Virginia Sq. on the Orange Line) and from NSF (but bring gloves for winter). And always a smile at Reception. I'll go back there next year.
