Great proximity to Metro (access to DC), and a (somewhat downtrodden) mall. Several restaurants in area and an overall good neighborhood. The hotel is a bit expensive given that it's not in DC proper (I paid almost $300 on a Thursday).
We booked this hotel because Marriott was full and we were looking outside of the District. We mistakenly assumed that parking would not be an issue. The only available parking was valet at $24/night (we were there for about 12 total hours). The front desk asked if we were aware of the charges in such a way that I assumed they had received complaints in the past.
Average Westin room, nothing special (had a dated-feel to it). Comforters had stains on them (almost looked like bed bug stains). Very comfortable bed, no problems other than unseemly stains and expensive parking. Great service and front desk staff.
