My husband and I, along with two other couples, all stayed at this hotel to celebrate our anniversary. It was a great choice for everyone. The view is a matter of opinion. Ours overlooked the airport and the train tracks. What can you say? That is better than most city views. I thought the room and the location was perfect. It is close enough to walk to places in Crystal City a few clocks away, but far enough away to feel like you were removed from hustle and bustle. We walked a few times, drove once up to the movie theatre (which is a minute or two away), and then we used the shuttle once to go to the Metro station. It ran every 20 minutes up until about 11pm. We had the package that offered breakfast each morning, and I found that to be a fantastic deal. With the exception of one lady in the omelet/waffle area, I thought the workers in the restaurant were very pleasant and helpful. We also took advantage of the decent weather and used the rooftop terrace to have wine together. That was an awesome amenity too! I will say that we frequent Northern VA often during our anniversary weekend each year because it is a central location for us to meet up with our friends and family. And before coming here, we had another favorite hotel, which I will not name. But, for the location and at almost $100 cheaper per night, my husband has decided that this is now his favorite place. I would definitely go back!
