This is a great hotel both to be close to the Reagan Airport (such as for an early morning flight) or as a convenient alternative to staying in downtown DC. It is an "airport hotel" close to the Reagan Airport, and offers a free airport shuttle every 20 minutes. The shuttle was on time and fast. The hotel also is connected through an underground tunnel system to the DC Metro system (only a few stops away) and to a number of small shops and restaurants located in the tunnel system. This proximity to Metro makes it extremely convenient as a hotel for DC visitors who don't need (or want) to stay in the middle of DC. In fact, it is located closer to a Metro station than are many downtown hotels, making it easier to explore DC using Metro from here than it would be from a lot of hotels downtown. My room had a direct line of sight to the Capitol dome, a better view than I have ever had in a downtown hotel. The hotel is one Metro stop away from Pentagon City, which is a large shopping area with a number of great restaurants and other stores. The Pentagon itself is only two stops away, and the airport only one stop away in the other direction, if you don't want to take the shuttle. The hotel itself was extremely comfortable and the staff was wonderful. I definitely would consider using this hotel for future visits to DC.
