I recently spent four days at this hotel for a conference. Overall this is a good place to stay, though I think it is a bit expensive. We stayed here because the conference was also held in the same hotel. So for convenience it was excellent. Our room was in great condition though the bathroom was a bit small. We did not eat in the hotel restaurants but $17 for a hamburger via room service seemed a bit much. There was also a fee for wireless internet. The pool area was a bit old, small, and boring. Few chairs, no umbrellas and no shade. The hot tub was broken for our entire stay. The gift shop/store was open until 11PM and offered ice cream, microwavable meals, snacks, etc. So I found the gift shop to be very useful. The employees were very, very friendly and helpful. You pay a high price for the amenities such a good business center, concierge desk, valet parking, good fitness center, quick service to/from airport, luggage stowage, lobby bar, etc. If this is what you want, then this is a good place to stay. If this is not what you want, then the hotel is too expensive. I would not have paid the high price for a vacation stay or casual business stay. But for hosting a conference it was great and I have no complaints (except for the hot tub).
It is a short walk to many dining options on Crystal Drive and/or 23rd Street. They offer a shuttle to the Metro subway station. If you choose to walk there, it takes about 10 minutes. This is manageable even when pulling luggage but do yourself a favor and wait on the shuttle. I never waited more than 5 minutes for a shuttle to pick me up at the subway station.
Overall it was a good place to stay.
