I bid on Priceline for this hotel and won at $78.00 which believe me was a bargain for this property. I was traveling with my 11 year old son. The hotel was a boutique style if that means modern, cool and hip. But, by all mean meant for all. The lobby had imacs with free computer access. Always available, I checked my stuff while my son played games. Also, chess games,tic tac toe and interesting books throughout. We arrived early from NJ about 4 hours before check in. No problem we parked the car (additional $22.@day) then the complimentary shuttle brought us to the metro. It runs every 20 minutes and for the two days we stayed it was always right on schedule. I never touched the car again until I left. The pool although on the small side was perfect as it was truly heated which is usually a biggy for me. We ate at the restaurant on premise. Pricey for sure but the food and service were both excellent. The next night I found out by the bartender they do have a happy hour. We were given the option of a king or 2 doubles. The room was very clean, the coffee was decent and the walk in shower was fabulous. Also, they deliver USA today in the am which I always find a treat. We stayed on the 8th floor and had no noise issues at all. I asked for the highest floor available. The surrounding area know as crystal city had alot of ammentities in terms of dining and shopping. We had pizza delivered the second night. We were going to arlington and the zoo the first day.
Washington the second. It was perfect. Metro so easy!!
