I visited Washington, DC over a holiday weekend and was drawn to the Hyatt across the river in Arlington, Virginia by brand quality and rate. Many others were obviously drawn by low rate, including a high school marching band. Kids will be kids, so the noise in the hallway and elevator lobby peaked at times. What concerned me most was the noise I heard through the walls and closed doors. I'm sure this hotel attracts primarily a business clientele, making horns and drums being sounded at midnight a moot point.
Hotel amenities were above average. Beds were EXTREMELY comfortable. They offered a great gym with free weights (dumb bells) and cardio equipment. Food service included a small, but nice restaurant and a lobby level outlet that was a Starbucks by day and a bar by night. Many restaurant choices from fast food to fine dining were within a 2-block up or down Wilson Boulevard. There was even a drug store and grocery store nearby. The hotel was within a block of a Metro station, by far the best way to move around the Capital City.
