This hotel is close to perfect. The staff has prepared for a lot of the little details: they had an inventory of various maps of the local area; the food is thoughtfully prepared (vegetarian options too) and healthy - not inexpensive junk; and, the business center is fully stocked and very clean. The room looks like it's been newly redone, even though it's the same as it was in prior years. The bed was perfect; usually hotel mattresses are -- suffice to say -- not. Another major advantage is just how quiet the rooms are. After years of staying in hotels, I notice loud TVs, etc. I didn't hear a thing the whole time : ) The kitchen is clean and new. The rooms are very large. Finally, I don't think the hotel advertises just how close they are to DC. I took a train from Union Station and it went almost directly to the hotel. There is a shuttle that makes pick ups from there as well. This hotel is highly, highly recommended.
