We stayed at the Radisson Hotel on our recent trip to Washington. The reason we booked this hotel was the cheaper pricing and the proximity to the Largo Metro station. The hotel is located about 1.5 miles from the Metro station and a complimentary shuttle is offered, but it doesn't always run on the advertised 30-minutes schedule. We discovered this returning from DC at 2:20 PM. We called the hotel as directed and were told the next shuttle wasn't until 3:00, although it really should have been at 2:30. We ended up walking back instead.
All of the staff we encountered were helpful and friendly. The shuttle drivers we had deserve special recognition. They took the time to get to know us, discussed our hometown and gave us some tips on the city. When we returned the first night, at 10:00, the driver even offered to take us by the store if we needed it.
The room was OK, but nothing special. One of our keycards didn't work to open the door and we had a little trouble getting the door to lock behind us on the first night. The room was arranged comfortably and the space was decent sized. The bed was uncomfortable, but I think that is because we were unsure how to use the Sleep Number beds. We ended up with one side of the bed rock hard and the other so soft that a ridge developed mid-bed, making it very difficult to go to sleep.
In the morning, we had breakfast in their restaurant. The food was OK, but it wasn't worth the $10 each price tag. For the most part, the food was reheated and tasted fairly bland. If you are headed into DC, you might do better to find a local restaurant for breakfast. If you are staying in the hotel area, however, I didn't notice any restaurants nearby, although we didn't venture much in that area so there might be more than we saw.
The biggest miss at this hotel, in my opinion, was the attention to details. Our bed was poorly made, with sheets not quite pulled tight. The breakfast pans were covered with saran wrap, even when people started arriving. There were no instructions on using the bed. That sort of thing.
The other issue we had was that it was difficult to get to the lobby without using the elevator. The stairs led you outside, then you had to walk around the building and back to the front door. This normally wouldn't be a problem, but with a hotel full of kids, the elevators were almost an impossible option.
All-in-all, I would stay at this hotel again, although if I could find a decent rate at another hotel, I wouldn't feel any particularly loyalty to this location.
