Spent one night here for a business meeting nearby the next morning. Slept fine until 6 am when the air traffic started at Reagan, after that room was extremely noisy. Soon after the ice machine came into use and added to the noise level.
Entering the room is very confusing: there are two lights on the door. When you swipe your keycard, one or both light up. The green light always lights, even if the card doesn’t read. If the red one lights up, you can enter.
Normal sized hotel room with a flatscreen TV, coffee pot, smoke detector, and sprinkler. Desk includes a chair, lamp, telephone, and wireless internet ($9.95/day). My room had two double beds but no easy chair, no refrigerator, no microwave.
Bathroom includes a sink, bathtub, and toilet all behind the same door, and a hairdryer. Closet included an iron and an ironing board.
There’s a wonderful bagel/breakfast restaurant kitty-corner from the hotel. The hotel has a small but capable bar. The restaurant is open until 11pm but I did not have an opportunity to try it.
Overall is decent hotel if you have a nearby meeting and need to get up at 6am anyway. Otherwise stay downtown or at the Holiday Inn a couple of blocks away.
