Every hotel staff I met during my five-night stay was very friendly and helpful. I was totally impressed by their hospitality! The hotel is about 3-5 mins from the metro; nice, easy walk, and there's no way you can get lost because you can see the hotel from the platform. It takes 25-40 minutes to DC, depending on your destination and the frequency of the metro.
The room had a fridge and even a microwave, and was kept very clean throughout my stay. The free wifi was sometimes a bit slow, but still okay. The pool was also nice and clean, life guard on duty, but sadly (and this is the only complaint I have about this hotel) it was open only from 3pm-10pm. Overall, however, I had a very comfortable, stress-free stay.
