This hotel definitely has some things going for it. First, it is within close walking distance of the Ballston Metro stop. Because of that, the neighborhood has many amenities. There are at least two dozen restaurant/bars with a three or four block radius. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I thought the Keurig coffeemaker in the room was a great touch. The television was a current, good sized flat screen with HD.
The downsides are that the whole hotel feels very dated. The lobby restaurant was completely dead at 8 on the Thursday evening. (Good thing there are plenty of places in walking distance.) All of the furniture and fixtures seem at leat 15 years old. The heat/AC unit is the old-fashioned below the window unit that makes racket all night. For the price (I paid well over $200), I would expect a little more updating.
