I wasn't quite sure what to expect based on recent reviews. However, my title sums it up nicely. The staff were always more than pleasant - from answering general questions to getting the shuttle, to recommending restaurants, etc.
Our room was always clean, everything appeared new (most likely recently remodeled) and was cleaned well each day. Beds and pillows were comfortable. and room had plenty of space for three of us.
I really appreciated the airport shuttle, so I didn't have to get a cab or hop the metro - even thought it is only one metro stop from the airport.
I think the Crystal City metro stop was 3 blocks from the hotel, an easy walk for each day's journeys into DC. And with it being chilly while there, we simply used the Crystal City Shops underground mall to traverse most of the distance.
23rd Street, a half block away, had a dozen or more restaurants of about about as many types of cuisine. Very nice choices.
I don't want to gush, but I really don't have any complaints. Well, I guess they could have had complimentary breakfast, but this is the DC area, after all. But you get a good deal through the "blind" hotel sites, so who's to complain?
