This hotel has the clean smell I need, and I can keep the windows open and get a steady cool breeze.
It's three blocks south of the Metro (Largo Town Center station, last stop on the Blue Line). Just exit the Metro parking lot and turn left; follow the curving road for three blocks (there's a sidewalk, and you'll see mostly grass and trees), then turn in at the same driveway as the Hampton Inn. This hotel is significantly cheaper than the Hampton, especially if you're staying for a week. I spent one night at the Hampton, which was nice except my room was next to a lot of machinery. Then I visited this hotel and moved across the parking lot.
Everything is spic and span. I love the coin laundry--all the other hotels I've been at in DC had prohibitively expensive valet laundry services. The room has a nice bathtub and shower, plus a big clean refrigerator, microwave, electric stove top, sink--even a toaster. Internet access is free. The bed is comfortable. Also, the quiet is lovely. This is the fourth hotel I've been at in DC, and it's the quietest.
I'm on the second floor. The hallways smell good. I'm very sensitive to smell, and I could tell that someone smoked a cigarette in the elevator at one time, but the scent was faint and didn't bother me.
Four blocks away (one block north of the Metro station) is a shopping center with one of Magic Johnson's giant movie theaters. I walked up there last night and had a wonderful grilled salmon meal at the South Carolina Kitchen.
