I really hate to write too much of a glowing review for this charming hotel for fear I will soon not be able to get reservations or that the price will be moved up to other hotels in the area. Since our son and his family live in a little tiny house in the area (aren't all houses here tiny unless you are a billionaire?), we must stay in in a hotel that is close to their home. This one is perfect and when you compare the price to other hotels in the area, this one is an exceptional value. Throw in the free parking and the proximity to Reagan National (and the easy hotel shuttle to and from the airport) and you have a bargain. Oh, and the huge, delicious and FREE breakfast is another perk.
The hotel also has a shuttle into the site-seeing areas that we haven't used. We come to see our little granddaughters so we'll normally take the hotel's shuttle from the airport to the hotel and our son or his wife will pick us up and take us to their home. We call the hotel when we have our luggage and voila! they are here to pick us up in less than 10 minutes. We'll then take a car back with us so the free parking is an unusual bonus in this area. The hotel is close to a grocery store and to Trader Joe's so if you want some wine or goodies that you can't find in the Colony Inn's (free) snack room, this is another advantage. Oh, and did I mention the free wireless internet?
The hotel has been remodeled and the rooms, although older, are outfitted with everything you need--they are also very clean.
Prior to our first visit to visit our family after they moved, I looked for many, many hours for a hotel room that would be affordable for retired teachers and this one was the only one that had everything we needed including:

We have stayed at the Colony Inn at least three times a year for the past six years and already have reservations for April and June!!
