We decided to stay in Arlington on our weekend trip to DC. Just 1 1/2 blocks to the Crystal City metro stop...which was fabulous. The hotel was very crowded with families - so it was tough to get a table at breakfast. We had an end suite which had a weird shape & a double bed. It reminded me a cruise stateroom...every square inch was used well. The carpeting in the halls needed to be replaced...but all in all a great stay.
