I keep meaning to write this review. Over the last 2 years my wife, daughter and I have stayed at this hotel 5 times for a night or two each time. We love this hotel. We have stayed at many hotels in the greater Washington area and this is our new favorite. The hotel is a short drive to Tyson's corner shopping (or they have a van you can take- which we have done during Christmas shopping season and it was great.) They have pretty easy driving access to Washington DC. The hotel offers a wonderful breakfast buffet each morning, and the reception on weekday evenings is great. While not large, the pool is a nice size and has always had warm water! The gym is also great. There are also many restaurants nearby. Though you will need to drive to places, it is a wonderful main base for seeing DC without the huge DC prices.
