First off, we used this hotel as a point to see D.C and Manassas. I can't tell you very much about the surrounding area. There's no free parking. I'd like to give it an "Average" rating but I realize that it may be unrealistic to expect free parking. There are ample metered spots on the street. [2 hour parking, 8am - 6pm. NOTE: The meters state that prepayment is allowed. I'm not sure, but you may be able to pay after 6pm for the morning hours of 8a-10am. Try it out.] Other than that it is a nice hotel. We were greeted by hot cider and fresh apples. The staff was very helpful, especially when we requested to be changed from an unpleasant room. The Heavenly Bed was just that. Between it and the black-out drapes we almost slept an entire day away. The minibars have been emptied due to a 'green' initiative by the hotel. They have taken to offering incentives for water conservation. For every day you opt out of housekeeping services the hotel will give you $5 By car, the hotel is twenty minutes from the sights in Washington D.C, around thirty minutes from the Manassas Battleground and thirty minutes from Dulles International. If you like being able to access an inexpensive breakfast cheaply you're in luck as there is a Starbucks attached to the lobby.
