According to the previous review the metro is steps away...NOT SO. I stayed at this hotel based on the one review and luckily I had a car. The metro is not right next door. It's more like 1/2 to 1 mile away. You have to cut through apartments to get there. I asked the hotel which way to go to the metro...since I didn't see it next door...and he said walk out the back, go behind the dumpsters and you'll see a path that will take you there. I followed directions and saw that it went behind the apartments. I immediately turned around. I went back into the hotel and asked someone else. The answer I then received was...well, the SAFEST way is to go up to the main highway, cross the street and head down by the mall. Walking that way would have been well over 1 mile.
As far as the safety factor...don't be fooled. This is the DC area and there is crime everywhere. The apartments next door do not have a good safety record...criminal activity. The mall also attracts suspicious characters.
As far as the hotel goes...it was fair. Nothing special.
