I wanted a hotel close to Reagan airport (because taxi fares add up!) and close to the Metro. This hotel is 3 blocks from Ballston station, and that is 8 stops to the Smithsonian and the Mall.
There are a lot of restaurants and shops that you can walk to on the way to Ballston.
The hotel is outdated, including the rooms. They were repairing the elevator when we were there. The room was pretty roomy though, a king size bed with a chair and a table. The bathroom was big too. The room had a small fridge and we kept our snacks and water there. No microwave though. The room and bathroom were very clean.
There was a pool on the second floor. I went to see it and it was small but clean. I would have use it if I had more time.
There is no free breakfast. We ate there a couple of times, it was OK, but I thought it was pricey for what it was. You can either pick hot buffet, cold buffet or a la carte. The food was eggs, fruit, yogurt and pancakes.
I would stay here again, we were out all day and just needed a place to sleep.
