Paid $300 a night. True, the location was great. Two blocks from metro. Great because we had no vehicle. Our view was of the top of the trees in the alley way park. It was a nice view. Staff very polite. Swimming pool (or should I say kiddie pool) was only 3 1/2 ft deep the whole length of the pool. Charged $2 for a bottle of water. Had fridge, so we walked to CVS and got our own to place in fridge. NO continental breakfast!!! You'd think that for $300 a night, that would come with it. There were free apples in the lobby, if you like apples. They have a breakfast buffet for $18 per person. And a full breakfast menu. Starting with 2 eggs, meat, potatoes, bread, for $20. And a Starbucks next to the lobby. Nice place to sleep. I will have to say that was the best about our stay.? The Simmons Heavenly beds and pillows. The best sleep I've had in years. You can get them from the Westin website. Going to purchase one for my Christmas Present to me. But....$300 a night? And a 3 1/2 ft pool, and no continental breakfast? Could stay just outside of area and rented a car then paid parking and taken public transportation a whole lot cheaper and been able to use the rental car for trips outside the metro area. Nice place, but not for someone on a budget. But, maybe they want it that way.
