This was our first trip to DC and chose this hotel based on the excellent reviews and was not disappointed. The room was spacious and bed was quite comfortable. Loved the breakfast in the morning, lots to choose from and was a good start to the day. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Hotel has both a shuttle to the airport and the metro but decided to walk to the metro, only about a 10-15 min walk. There is a nice trail a short distance from the hotel called Mt. Vernon trail which takes you by the airport and along the potomac river. Lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. Overall an excellent stay.
