Just had a nice stay at this hotel. The location is really good for being able to walk just about anywhere in the Old Town area between hotel and the water. The hotel also has it's own shuttle for local transport and also the King St free trolley is about a two minute walk to pick up and will take you anywhere up and down King St. The King St Metro stop is about a three minute walk away after you cross Duke St. Sometimes it can take a while for the light to turn in your favor to cross but once you get going, three minutes tops and you're in front of the station. Anyone who complains that this hotel is not that close to the Metro station is probably the same type who would complain that the Metro was too noisy if it was any closer of a walk. No pleasing these types. We could see the Metro platform from our room. It's that close. The room was fine, nice studio suite. Looked nice, clean and comfortable to me. One day we were there our room was never made up at all. Not sure why. My wife swears she took the do not disturb hangtag off the doorknob before we left for the day so I have to believe her. We had extra towels so it was no big deal and when we mentioned it downstairs it never happened again. The morning breakfast was nice. Eggs, cereals, sausage, waffle maker. Should be something for everyone I'd think. There's a parking garage there for guests. It was $18 daily to park. We were Silver Elite level with Marriott so they dropped the rate to $10 for us. We had a Chevy Traverse rental vehicle and this is about the biggest fattest thing you want to be bringing into the parking garage, It's really tight in there. There is free wi-fi available, we didn't use it though. There was no in-room safe which kind of surprised us. Overall it was a really pleasant stay. The location is really one of their greatest strengths. You can easily stroll all King St has to offer (or take the free trolley if you get tired of walking.) and the Metro can connect you with just about anywhere in the entire area you wish to go. I would stay there again myself and would recommend it.
