“Nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We stayed for three nights while we toured DC. The staff was very good to us and the shuttle service was a money and time saver! We arrived at 10 am and the staff allowed us to check in early. The room is very clean and the breakfast is excellent! On our way out, we had a late-afternoon departure flight, the staff allowed us to stay in the room for a couple of extra hours.
The shuttle leaves every 15 minutes from the hotel, but more importantly, the shuttle will pick you up at the metro station at the end of a long day of touring. (They stop at midnight) Be sure to tip the drivers!

Green Features: They have signs asking that you hang your towels as an indicator that you don't need fresh linens, in an effort to be 'green'. We hung our towels everyday but still had fresh linens....so much for being 'green'

This hotel offers good value for tourists or other visitors to the D.C. area. The facilities are good and the rooms are comfortable. There are few choices for restaurants in the area without walking and, in addition, the walk to the closest metro station is about 15 to 20 minutes. In D.C.'s warmer months, that's really uncomfortable. The hotel is close to the airport and does offer regular shuttle service. The staff is friendly and helpful.

My family stayed here last year while visiting DC. We stayed several nights and the room was very comfortable, especially after the longs days of walking around all of the DC tourist attractions. The staff was very nice. The shuttle service is a bit slow but the drivers were very courteous and professional. The hotel was within walking distance of the subway and several restaurants. We will stay here again.

I ended up missing a connection and DC and was forced to stay the night. I chose this location because it is very close to the airport.

I'd say the place is pretty average. For the price paid, it's not spectacular, but it is the DC area, so it was comparable to other nearby hotels. It was clean, and easily accessible via the airport shuttle.

I have stayed at this hotel several times because we have a government conference there, and it is very close to the airport. My most recent stay was the best yet. The front desk staff were attentive and courteous, the AC worked well, and the shuttle transfers were efficient. One morning I asked for toast (it wasn't included in the buffet breakfast) and Dora, our waitress, had some made just for me. High five, Dora! I look forward to coming again.

Green Features: it's a good thought, but the way the towels are folded in the bathrrom, they fall easily to the floor, rather defeating the purpose.

Our non-smoking room reeked of cigarettes, the air conditioning unit is incredibly loud (sleeping was difficult), the toilet seat was broken, one of the lamps was nearly broken and leaning heavily to one side...

On arrival, we were first refused check-in because the person who had booked the rooms hadn't yet arrived (she was a good two hours away). That's fair enough, but we had called in advance about this and was told everything would be fine. We had to get our friend on the phone until the receptionist reluctantly checked us in. No big deal, it wasn't a terribly bad exchange but the communication between staff could be worked on.

Won't be coming back any time soon, I'm afraid.
