This hotel is tucked away near the I-495 beltway (but surprisingly, we heard no traffic noise at all in the room). The suite was great, having a full sized refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher and oven. The highlight of our stay was the excellent housekeeping staff who kept our rooms very clean and were very pleasant. The breakfast bar (included in room...

I was finding myself homeless for the night as my adult daughter was hosting an event at our home and asked us to stay away. So I made the most of the opportunity by booking a college visit for my son at George Mason University and booking this location. We arrived late evening and found parking on the regular lot....
