I stayed here on 2 separate 3 night stays, back to back weeks. My reservation was on a Priceline prepaid rate, but that didn't affect the level of service I received. In both my stays, the entire staff was friendly and efficient. The restaurant/bar had a decent selection of food as well. My stays were pretty quiet both times, as I didn't encounter too many other guests. If you get a river view room, you *may* hear airplanes if they are taking off to the South. Otherwise, when they are landing down the river, they are generally quiet enough to not be heard. Neither scenario bothered me too much, though. But if you think it may bother you, ask for a room facing the opposite side.
As mentioned many times in the reviews here, the shuttle service operates half hourly to/from Reagan airport, which is about a 15 minute ride (including stop at the neighboring Holiday Inn). I needed to work in downtown DC, so I used the shuttle for my rides to get the airport metro. While this is convenience, I would love it if they offered some kind of shuttle service up to the Braddock Rd. Metro station, which is about a 5 minute ride and would be super convenient. They do offer the shuttle over to the King street shopping area, but that service doesn't begin until 2pm.
