Upon pulling up to the hotel I was expecting valet parking or something similar. Not. We were greeted at our car by a very nice man who has worked there for 20 something years. He was helpful and friendly and told me to leave my bags with him, and keep the car right where it was. After checking in, I could put the car in the garage. Check in was very quick since we were the only ones there. The lobby is small but functional with coffee offered. After checking in we got into our car and drove down the driveway to the right side. Right there is the hotel's parking garage which is underground. It is very, very small under there, and here I was in this huge SUV rental. Parked the car. It is kind of weird down there... Tight turns and a very loud fan if you end up parking in a certain location. Can't remember what I paid per night. Personally I do not care for parking in places like this. The room was quiet with a view onto the street below. Nothing too exciting to comment on with the room, except that it looked like it was old (from the ceiling), but it did have newer furniture, and it was spotlessly clean. I did eat at the restaurant for breakfast which was included with my HHonors membership. It is a buffet with lots of hot cooked to order options. The hotel is conveniently located across the street from a 24hr IHOP on one side and if I remember correctly Wells Fargo Bank on the other. There is a full serve starbucks location and a deli food place just outside the back entrance. A couple of blocks away is the Ballston Mall with two gorgeous ice arenas where the Washington Capitals hockey team practices. There is also a Macy's and a few smaller stores. Nothing too great about this mall except for the ice arena. I was on business and had to stay at the hotel, i.e., it wasn't my choice. Didn't take the metro but heard it was very close by.
