My family and I arrived July 16 and stayed until July 19. This hotel is located in a very upscale new neighborhood that has lots of amenities, including a 24 hour supermarket across the street and many restaurants to choose from. The hotel staff is extremely friendly and the room was very clean, big and the bed was comfortable. While the hotel is not located near a Metro Station, there is a hotel shuttle that is very accommodating and will drop you off / pick you up at Pentagon City, which only adds a few minutes to your travel time. The shuttle driver was also kind enough to make a special stop for us to the Pentagon 9/11 memorial! Be sure to check out the terrace on the 6th floor... Not very big but a nice place to relax after a long day of walking in DC. The hotel does have a pool and a hot tub. The pool is not large but our 11 year old daughter enjoyed it anyway! The breakfast buffet is wonderful....made to order omelets, waffles, pancakes, fruit bar, bagels, danish, etc... make sure to get breakfast as part of your hotel package! This is a great hotel to stay in that is much cheaper than most hotels in the DC area and I would definitely recommend and stay at again!
