I used points so I can't comment on value for price.
Went here with my son to take in the sights of DC. I am picky so I really reviewed hotels. I was a little hesitant given that most DC business areas are empty at night but I felt safe walking from car to lobby, etc. Positive reviews matched my experience. Very clean and super staff. Superb breakfast included. More hot foods than cold which is rare.
Our room overlooked the Masonic Monument in Alexandria which impressed my 7 year old. I had a huge master room and it was nice to have the living room with sofa to watch tv. Full-size fridge was a plus for bottled water and leftovers. The kitchen is stocked with real dishes and everything you need to cook which I am sure those staying for a while would enjoy. We really didn't need it.
Negative: Fold out sofa bed had a lot of crumbs in it which grossed me out since my son was sleeping there. Sheets were fresh for us but still...
Postive: huge rooms, could save money by cooking in if necessary but biggest plus was comp. 2 min. shuttle to metro. Took metro in to see the sites....couldn't have been easier.
Huge shout out to Barry our shuttle driver. Very friendly, genuine, chatted with my son without making him shy, recommended great restaurants. Gave us his personal card and we called upon our return and he picked us right up at metro station.
