This is a fairly modern hotel with decent decor located close to access roads that will take you pretty much where you want to go. There are stores and restaurants close by and if you are so inclined, the NRA museum is literally a block away. This hotel is not nearly as 'user friendly' as other places I have stayed. We did not opt to include breakfasts and we were absolutely shocked at the prices. When you travel with kids, the thought of $50 for breakfast in the hotel is pretty insane. I realize that the Virginia / DC area is known for crime and this hotel has locks on all the exit doors that you have to slide your room key to open....what a pain. Oh well, at least the key area is right next to the ashtrays so you get to experience the the overwhelming odor of putrid cigarettes while you struggle to get your key in while all your luggage gets soaked in the rain. Lovely.
The staff was at least cordial, that was a plus, but it didn't make up for mattresses that were SO floppy and worn out, that it was like sleeping on an old air mattress suspended by bungee cords.
