Beautiful, but a very expensive hotel with few perks for the price. Parking was $30/day and you had to pay for Internet access on top of that outrageous fee. The doublebeds are not very comfortable. If you are driving it is hard to see the entrance to the lobby/parkng and it might take you a few tries to find it. The hotel is conveniently located next to the Metro Station but not next to the Old Town restaurants and shops. It is a very long walk to these and it would be fine in warm weather, but on a cold or rainy night or if you have arthritic knees like my wife has you will regret it. There is a shuttle, but the hotel doesn't do much to help its guests use it. Being located next to the Metro Station is a mixed blessing. Any room on the side of the hotel to the rail line is subjected to the relentless noise of the Metro and light rail passing by at all hours. It only quiets down after midnight and starts up very early. I love to listen to a distant train at night, but this isn't distant and the trains whistle as they approach the stop. There are no other perks with your room unless you are lucky enough to get a package deal and you get what you pay for in this case. The few restaurants in the immediate area are not rated well compared to the many down the street in Old Town. So there is food nearby, but very few good choices. On top of all of this the front desk clerk could not find my reservation when I checked in, sending me back to my car for my confirmation. I can excuse that issue, but the overall experience wasn't as good as it should have been. If you are planning an event that depends on the use of audiovisuals for a large crowd, be aware that the large meeting room is long and narrow. Our viewing angle was hampered by this and most people in our meeting complained about this. As a speaker it was a nightmare as you could not speak and see your visuals on the two large angled screens next to you. We are moving our meeting elsewhere next year because of this and other issues.
