This hotel is inside the Beltway in East Falls Church, Arlington. There's a lot of traffic around and it's a little hard to turn left to get into this place but it wasn't a big deal. Nice hotel rooms, plenty of parking. The best thing about it, though, is that it's within walking distance to the East Falls Church Metro...

It makes a visit to Washington a little less a burden to the pocket book. Washington requires more than one night to do it right and...
