My husband and I needed a place to stay while visiting DC. I didn't want to book a hotel in the district as we were going to be driving in from Atlanta. This hotel is conveniently located and was very easy to find. It is one block away from the Crystal City metro station and only a short train ride into DC. The shops at Crystal City are a few blocks away and can accommodate all of your dining needs. If you need a shopping mall, Pentagon City is only one metro stop or a short walk away.
While we were staying at the hotel, we needed to switch rooms (they were painting the elevator and the fumes were coming into our room). The manager was very nice and switched our room promptly. He was very quick to accommodate. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are traveling to the DC area.
