We stayed here in September for 3 days while we went sight seeing in Washington DC. The hotel itself was excellent. Huge rooms, extremely comfortable bed, free fast wireless internet, working AC (although a little noisy, tended to switch it off overnight), clean bathroom, friendly staff. Pretty much everything you could ask for!
The hotel is situated in a very safe, pretty area about 15 to 20 minutes walk from King Street, where all the cute shops and restaurants are. However there's also a decent supermarket right across the road, and a decent steakhouse half a block away (TJ Stones). For the metro it was about a 15 minute walk to Braddock Road. Walk felt very safe despite going through a slightly less upmarket housing estate. There was also a free, and very useful shuttle to Ronald Reagan airport, useful both for the metro (avoiding the walk with luggage) and the airport itself. We found it a great base for exploring both Arlington and DC, and was great value in comparison to the hotels in town (which we were slightly nervous about location-wise).
The only let-down was the breakfast which was average quality and over-priced. And don't order tea - they make it in the coffee jugs (coffee flavoured tea, yuch!). Best to head out for breakfast.
