We have visited this hotel countless times over the years. Unlike most of it's visitors we do not come for business, but to visit family in the area. We always enjoy the complex the hotel is located in. There is a movie theater, cupcake shop, Starbucks, and a yogurt shop. There are also many casual dining restaurants. In addition there is a Target and many other smaller retailers. On the weekend the place is family friendly, well lit and lively. There is a manmade lake with swan peddle boats that can be rented during the warmer months.The hotel has free parking and Washington D.C. is within easy reach, about half an hour by car. Rooms are modern and all look alike. The double rooms have 2 beds, a night table, an armchair and a desk and chair. The king rooms have an extra footstool and small table. Rates on the weekend are reasonable. Some packages include the breakfast buffet. The buffet includes fresh cut fruit and many choices. They have more of a selection on the weekend including grits and biscuits. Julie the server/hostess always welcomes us back with a smile. Janet, the chef at the omelet station, is always friendly and makes yummy waffles and a variety of omelets. They both make us feel at home and welcomed. The pool is open all weekend but has limited hours on the weekdays. It is an indoor pool located on the second floor. It has a wall of windows so you do not feel closed in. There is a concierge floor, but we have never been there. When there is an issue the front desk staff usually handle it quickly and will call to follow up that things have been taken care of. We have tried many hotels in the area over the years and keep coming back to this one.
