I chose this hotel to stay in while visiting Washington for the 3rd yr in a row for the Police Unity Tour my husband rides in. I am was 8 months pregnant with a 3 yr old in tow, so I needed convenience to the Metro with a good price. ($160 per night).
The concierge helped me bring my stuff to my room and had early check in! Score! I was able to check in at 915am, freshen up after the ride in, and be to the Smithsonian by 10am. My room was clean. View was eh, but I wasn't there to sit in the room. Coffee maker in room (was descent) and had tea too and fridge. Balston Metro stop on Orange line.
IHop across the street (24hrs). Was small, but really yummy and super friendly. Using Siri on my iPhone, I can asked for 'food' and other places come up (cafe types) in the area.
Killer pressure in shower! Was great.
Parking is under the hotel-$17 a night with inside hotel elevator access (convenient). Hotel will give you ticket to give the man on your last day or if you want to go in and out (unlimited on that too).
15-20 min ride to Metro center (red line connection) or actually shorter. It was 20 mins maybe to Smithsonian. Metro station is on the corner right behind the hotel. 1 min walk if that.
All I would say as negatives were that the bathroom is small and has no exhaust fan. When you shower, the room gets too steamy and everything gets misted. Also, there is no option for continental breakfast, coffee, or anything from lobby (if say you want a quick snack on way out with out sitting down at the IHop).
