This hotel is handy when you need a place to stay and park. There is nothing around except a gas station and another hotel (the shuttle almost hit a deer on the way to the hotel) . They have a 24 hour shuttle to Dulles airport. The lobby looks hip but very busy (the overhead lights have "Martha Stewart style cozies" around them :). No two pieces of furniture are the same and the checkin area is round and in the middle making it all look very busy and cluttered. They had computers that allowed you to checkin for the hotel and flights but we couldn't make them work.
The rooms are suppose to be designed to have clean lines, hip, urban, and green. The result seems more confusing and looks more like an office with a bed in it; very impersonal.
Several things were missing from the room such as towels, coffee packets, etc. and it took awhile for room service to deliver them. Various items were inop such as lights, outlets, etc. The room needed a good deep cleaning (surfaces were sticky, carpet dirty, etc.).
The door to the bathroom is a sliding door that was loose and slammed around when you operated it. The shower was a nice walkin shower but they had no separate shampoo bottles; they used large shower containers, like at a YMCA hostel.
The bed was big but they need to update the bedding. It felt cheap and hard. The curtains were roll down type that let through the light. They should put real curtains over the roll downs.
The restaurant consisted of a little open area to put your order in for a breakfast sandwich and a table with candies, chips, and apples. They also had juices, soda, etc.
Staff was friendly and helpful.
