I usually stay in DC when visiting, but this trip required an early morning flight from Dulles so I decided to stay at a nearby hotel. The website for Hotel Sierra was interesting and the price was very reasonable. When I got to Dulles, I called the hotel and the complimentary shuttle service (a handsome black SUV instead of a white van) arrived in a short time). Everyone at the hotel was pleasant and very helpful. Whoever designed this hotel must have been a business traveler. Everything a businessperson could possibly need has been anticipated. I was given a Studio King--a beautifully appointed room (comparable to or better than most 4-star hotels in DC). From the perfectly appointed kitchenette to the high-end draperies and furniture and incredible comfortable bed with six (6) king sized pillows. Granted, it was a slow weekend, but I paid only $81.00 a night (before tax). There's not only a complimentary business center, but a laundry facility, fitness room and a 24-hour mini-market that contained just about anything one would need. the only thing I was disappointed in was there was no bar offering cocktails, BUT there is a nice Bistro with beer and wine and a nice assortment of
hot, freshly-prepared meals. I can't say enough positive things about this hotel--it is a real find!!
