Just finished a four night stay at this fine property outside of DC. The location has lots to offer as far as dinning and shopping options, being a distance from DC is no problem on this front. It is an older property, well kept, with a very pleasant staff. The full breakfast and cocktail hour are both well handled, and really add value to your stay, add in the free parking and I can't imagine a better value in the area. The shuttle service is very handy, and gets you out from behind the wheel in this very heavy traffic area. We took the advice of other TA members and got a room in the rear on a high floor in the rear to avoid road work noise, great idea except for the clowns in the building next door who started throwing metal debris into dumpsters before 6 AM both work days we were there. Very aggravating! One of the two elevators was down for all four days of our stay, and the wake up call we requested for our getaway day was never made (dumpster guys made sure we didn't oversleep). All in all I can't imagine you will find a better value in the DC area for your money, when the Metro comes to the front door, it will only improve the experience. Well done to the management and staff, who do well with what they have to work with. Good attitude goes a long way in this business.
