I booked through travelocity for a weekend in DC. the metro station is about 6 miles from the hotel. Luckily, colony south offers shuttle service to and from the station. colony feels like it's in the middle of nowhere, so don't expect to do any sight seeing. The hotel itself is outdated but the beds were comfy, bathrooms clean, gym fully equipped.
Don't expect to get breakfast if you book the room through a third party. My friend and I were super disappointed about this.
Shuttle service was great the entire weekend until the morning we had to head back to NYC. The gentleman at the front desk informed us that the shuttle leaves every hour and we had missed it by 20 min. That's not how it worked during the weekend! We would ask the front desk for a shuttle, they would call, 10 min later we would be at the metro station. My friend told the front desk that we wouldn't make our bus back home if we head to wait for the next shuttle. He had no sympathy and didn't even make an attempt to call the driver. He only gave us a taxi cab number, which wasn't located in DC! We wound up calling british Columbia!! After multiple failed cab numbers, loud sighs, and whispering upon ourselves, the driver finally agreed to drop us off. (he walked in only a few minutes earlier).
All in all we had a nice stay, but the whole shuttle issue really put a damper on our morning. If the shuttle had actually left every hour, on the hour during our time there, we wouldn't have made such a fuss.
Btw, drivers are awesome, Esp. Nate!.don't forget to tip them when they drop you at the metro!
