My husband and I went to DC for the first time this weekend. I had to go for a conference and he tagged along. The hotel is very close to the DCA airport and they provide a shuttle. Check in was fast, no wait. We were upgraded to a suite. The bed was AMAZING! We had lots of pillows and a down comforter. The only reason I didn't give this hotel an Excellent rating was because of the noise in the room. We were on the 7th floor and could still hear the street traffic. The hotel has 19 floors so next time I would ask for a higher floor. I didn't report this issue so I'm sure they would have moved me if I asked. They provide Bath and Body Works toiletries that smell really nice. The staff is very nice and the conference facilities were great. As a conference guest, the event coordinator sent a bottle of wine and fruit tray to our room. (Nice touch, I thought) The Metro is right below the hotel so it was easy for us to hop on the Metro and go into DC. The hotel seemed to be in a safe area. My husband and I walked around at night with no problems and there are many restaraunts closeby. I would have liked to have free wifi but it was like 12.95 a day. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. Now if we can only buy one of those beds...
