Hotel is 3 blocks from the Metro Station, it is an easy to walk to to get to, and take into DC. The shuttle driver is more than willing to accommodate you with a short trip if need be..

I came on a business trip and I chose this hotel because it was only 3 blocks away from the office. The area is quite nice and has many options for eating/ drinking. It's also super close to the Ballston-MU metro station. The staff was nice, and I liked the room. The hotel is a bit old, especially if you...

It was very nice. Clean, friendly workers, and prompt service. We asked for an extra towel and they made sure we had it right away. The pool is closed for the winter being it's on the second floor outside. We were pleased.

We stayed at this hotel for inauguration week. The hotel was reasonably priced even for such a huge DC event. What I liked about this hotel was the back that it was within easy walking distance (3 blocks) to the Ballston Metro station.
