My husband and I were in the area - him for work & me as a tag-along for an impromptu trip to the DC area. We were in a studio room, and it was very nice.
The Good: The room was decorated nicely and was comfortable. The mini-kitchen was fantastic & includes a sink, refrigerator, dishwasher, stove, microwave, coffee pot, cupboards and a selection of dishes & other household items. The desk was large enough for doing work on & the TV swung either to face the sofa or the bed. It was clean & quiet. The staff were reasonably pleasant. The washers & dryers are a nice addition for people staying for awhile (they are coin-operated). The hotel is within a few blocks of a couple of strip malls that have restaurants and stores.
The Not-As-Good: The pool is outdoors & closes on Labor Day. I think they could be open a little longer, it is still hot down in Virginia in early September & I would've liked to be able to hang out by the pool. I was also disappointed to discover that there was no shuttle to the metro. It's a service I think the hotel should consider providing. I solved this by taking a cab to the shuttle (approx. $10 one-way in the middle of the day with no traffic) and then taking the bus back. If it works into your schedule, the bus is only $1.80 and is 1 stop away from the hotel. The bus stop is across the road.Take 321 to the metro station & 322 back. If the hotel isn't going to offer a shuttle in the future, they should consider having the bus schedule available for people if they are interested. If you have a car, obviously just drive to the metro & it's an easy ride to attractions in the city. The staff wasn't too friendly when we requested a late checkout, but they did end up giving us 45 minutes (why not make it a round hour?) - we ended up checking out only 10-15 minutes after the regular checkout, anyway.
Also, there is food nearby - Mike's American, a Mexican place, a Thai place in the shopping plaza, Dunkin across the road. So, that was convenient as well for nights when we didn't want to venture too far.
