My son & I stayed 5 nights here while visiting DC. The service was excellent! I requested a room on the 8th floor away from noise & it was not an issue. Heard some road noise in the morning, but not out of the ordinary. Shuttle picked us up from the airport. It was a 25 minute wait. Shuttle also took us to the front door of the restaurant we wanted to try in Alexandria. I highly recommend Mahai Thai on King Street by the water, if you like Thai food. Since our flight didn't leave until 4:00 & checkout time is noon, the hotel held our luggage while we walked across the street to the San Antonio grill for lunch. Not the best looking decor in a Mexican restaurant, but the lunch fajitas were excellent! I chose this hotel mainly for the convenience of walking to the metro. Worked out great & a short distance to Huntington to catch bus 101 to Mt. Vernon. The bathroom was a bit small, but accomodating for one person at at time. The breakfast was decent, but a bit pricey. I guess I'm used to complimentary breakfast. I would definitely stay here again.
