I booked into the hotel as there were no budget hotels available in the centre of Washington owing to an event and it was offering a good rate. The hotel itself was fine, no trouble with the room and helpful staff at reception. It is ten minutes walk from the metro. Free breakfast.
The main problem was with shuttle. I got the impression from the website that it rang until 9pm. In fact it does not run adter 2pm on a Saturday and you have to ring the hotel from the airport. I took the metrorail (which was running a skeleton service owing to engineering work but you can't blame the hotel for that). Had to wait 30 minutes for the shuttle when I checked out.
The hotel is inexpensive and I'll give it four stars and would certainly recommend it. However if you are using DCA airport check the transfer arrangents they caught me out.
