The BestWestern in Springfield, Virginia is sort of a corporate or business type hotel close to the I-95 and I-495 junctures in Alexandria; it's definately convenient to Washington D.C.,. We stayed there to attend a party at the adjoining Waterford Event complex; for anyone going to the Waterford this a great choice.
The rooms were average sized with a hanging clothes rack, no closet. The bathroom is small and the sink is in the room area, not the bathroom. Its a sterotypic mid range hotel room.
Clean Rooms - espically the bathrooms, spotless
Breakfast was pretty good in a very nice dining area. Coffee maker, refigerator, 32inch flat screen T.V. with good cable choices were all there.
Service was above average, younger clerks that were on the ball
Nice Pool - large too.
The location is close to a lost of good resturant choices and the BestWestern provides a Van Service.
Reasonably priced for the area
The property is dated, the furninture is beat up and the fixtures are old, I love the Bestwestern Hotel Guide and Road Atlas and I always took one when I stayed in the old days. I found a 2009 edition in my bedside table drawer which saddens me because that probly means they don't publish them anymore. This also show that this place has not been renovated in quite a while.
The building and the seperate lobby / breakfast building do not have much personality, sort of like a really nice college dorm building
The computer in the lobby is Jacked Up slow and outdated; this is not good for a corparate type hotel that has a lot of business type customers.
The back of the building is kissing close to an Interstate Highway Ramp, there is parking underneath the ramp itself. The noise for rooms facing the back has to be bad; fortunately we had a room on the 3rd fllor facing the front and it was quiet enough.
All in All - good choice because of the price but not a fabulous choice for anyone looking for a relaxing place to spend time. This is D.C. after all so most people are not there for the hotel but a quiet place to sleep at a reasonable price; this place makes it a good choice. The pricing makes this place a good choice but not what I would classify as a "no brainer." A 4 out of 5 but not a runaway wonder!
Enjoy D.C., its a marvelous place
