We spent 6 days touring all the sites in Washington DC. We were looking for a hotel that was nice, but affordable, nothing fancy, but we wanted a kitchenette so we wouldn't have to eat all our meals out. We also wanted one close to a Metro station since we didn't have a car. I agree with one of the other reviewers, this hotel is somewhat close to the last Blue line station but it isn't right next door. If you take the walking trail (an asphalt walkway that parallels the freeway) it is about a 10 minute walk, not something I would recommend if you have a lot of luggage, but we easily made the walk each morning when we were going into the city to sightsee. At night, I would not recommend taking this path as it is out of sight of the road and seems a little sketchy in the dark. Instead we had to walk by the Springfield Mall which added another 10 minutes or so.
The hotel was perfectly nice, but nothing fancy. The staff was very friendly and helpful, they helped us call for a taxi to a grocery store (there is not one in walking distance) so we could stock up on food when we arrived. The only other time we used a taxi was to get from the hotel to the Metro stop when we were going back to the airport (Reagan National is on the Blue line also) to save us walking with our luggage in the rain.
Metro is awesome, we had week long passes and we wore them out. It is so convenient, but still be prepared to do a lot of walking between tourist attractions!
