Stayed for 2 nights in May 2013 for my wedding anniversary. The room was clean and the furnishings were up to date. The bathroom fixtures appeared to have been updated, but the tub was not updated. Great location. The staff was friendly and helpful. They took the time to explain the metro system to us...since this was our first time using the system. Our parking was free and we paid the rate that included free breakfast. Our room was on the 4th floor, facing metro. We did not hear any noise from the street or metro. The hotel is very convenient to the metro, less than 5 min walk. 20-25 min metro ride into DC. They have a shuttle, but it does not have a regular operating schedule, so you can't really depend on the shuttle. There are a couple of restaurants that are also less than a 5 min walk as well as a movie theater. I would definitely stay at this location again.
