My fiancee took a long weekend to the DC area since we had never been. If we are ever traveling to a big city, we prefer to stay a little bit outside of the town to avoid paying the high city prices for parking, food, lodging, etc. Of course since we are staying outside of town we look to find somewhere that is close to public transportation to make it easy for us to get in and out of the city. As others have said this hotel is right next door to the Dunn Loring metro station that takes you right into DC.
As for the hotel itself, we were in a King suite on the top floor and it was everything that we could have asked for. VERY well updated room and a comfortable bed as well. WiFi was very fast.
The only thing I could have asked for to make the trip better would have been a free breakfast included in the rate. They have a bistro on site that you can either pay extra per night to use, or you can use it as a buffet and pay for what you purchase.
All in all, if we make it back to DC we will absolutely stay here again. We booked about two months out and got the amazing rate of $71 a night. Make sure if you know you're going to be making a trip to book this place early!
