If you check into this hotel in the evening, you feel like you're in a New York City boutique hotel, or even a night club that happens to have airport shuttle service. It has a very trendy feel without being pretentious. You won't think you're at a Marriott. However, when you check out in the morning, this feels much more like a regular hotel. It's like having 2 hotels in 1.
The room had a nice modern layout. The shower was terrific. I also really liked all of the counter space that comfortably held toiletries for 2 people. There was also an extra shelf under the sink to hold more items which really came in handy.
Breakfast is served in the hotel's restaurant called Socci. This is a very interesting setting where steam punk meets art deco. The buffet was very tasty. The complimentary mini-smoothie at the beginning of breakfast was a pleasant surprise and a nice way to start the meal.
In addition to the airport shuttle which runs every 20 minutes (National-Reagan airport is about 5 minutes away) this hotel also runs a shuttle to the Crystal City Shopping Center. We really enjoyed staying here and we'll be back!
