This is an excellent hotel for the money. I have stayed here many times over the years and I was back here for a 3 day business conference. The rooms are excellent: spacious, comfortable, with a great view of the woods around the facility. The beds were plush and comfortable and allowed me to sleep so I could be well rested when the demanding meetings began in the morning. The food was delicious, especially the lunch buffet which offered a wide selection. Service was also excellent. There are doormen during the day, if that turns you on! Complementary newspapers are available in the morning. There is an excercise room, outdoor swimming pool, and a business center. Yes, the price was very good for such an excellent hotel. As is often the case, weekends are cheaper than the work week. As indicated by others, this is about 25 miles from downtown DC but its still workable and an easy hop to Dulles airport, but not Reagan National airport. When they complete the Metro to Dulles Airport, you could probably get to public transportation to go downtown quite easily. I actually favor another hotel closer to the airport but this is a nice wooded area, even though there can be some traffic jams around rush hour. Food was excellent, varied, and tasty and there are good restaurants in the area if you have a car.
