This hotel is pretty much your typical Holiday Inn. The staff was very friendly and helpful when checking in and they gave me a nice bag filled with goodies for being a rewards member. The room was very large, big windows (not much of a view, just the interstate), comfy bed, and free Wi-Fi that worked great on both of my devices. There is van service to and from the airport (DCA) at the top of the hour and the van will take you within a 1-2 mile radius I believe. There isn't much right in the area where the hotel is located but there is a blue line train station about a block away that will take you to the DCA airport and into Washington D.C. My only complaint would be the price; I thought the rate was a bit much and over the weekend I stayed in a comparable hotel in the heart of D.C. for half the price. I definitely recommend this hotel to other travelers but shop around to ensure you are getting the best rate.
