We stayed here for a night. Staff was great throughout and the room was clean. However, we usually stay at the Embassy Suites in Tysons Corner/Vienna which is better, but also more $. This hotel in Herndon seemed like it needed some updating... it has a slightly shabby feel to it. Also, breakfast did not have as much variety as the Vienna location. Quality was not as good either. Same thing with the evening snacks - the drinks were definitely cheaper quality than other hotels we've experienced. So you get what you pay for! Despite these differences, it was a pleasant enough stay since we only had to spend one night there. I'd rather stay at the Vienna location.
The swans were a big hit with my kids! I wondered though if it's a good idea to keep these beautiful swans indoors in a such a small area surrounded by lights and noise.
