I have stayed at this location 2 times now. The hotel itself is a nice hotel and the employees are very friendly and accommodating.
There are 2 problems with the hotel.
1. Location. There is no affordable way to get to the metro to get into DC.
2. Water quality is absolutely terrible. All the water smells like a dirty fish tank and tastes just as bad. I did not feel clean after showering because if this. Very stagnant smelling. This is far more troubling than the location. Fix the water problem and this review is completely different.
