Impressive high rise hotel in a very nice area considering how close you are to DC. Beautiful modern lobby. Check out the cool touch screen interactive computer poster in the lobby!
Somewhat difficult to get to from the highway because it has a one way street in the front , and in the back (going the same way!). IF, you can figure out how to get around to the back of the hotel (it is in the shape of a triangle), there is a parking garage right up against it that is way cheaper than their valet parking.
Room was nice. Front rooms have a view of the pool so you can check out who is in there before you go down. AC in rooms needs to be set at at least 63 degrees to get a comfortable 67 (we had a thermometer on our portable clock). Bathrooms are crazy SMALL. You can sit on the toilet and use the sink and the tub at the same time!
No microwave or fridge, so expect to pay BIG bucks for hotel food (yummy though). There ARE some nice restaurants within 1-3 blocks, BUT, for some strange reason almost ALL of them are closed on Sat./ Sun. (what's up with that? We found that to be true in DC too).
Gym in this hotel was AMAZING! Very big and alot of free weights. Clean too...or, stuff available to clean with. They even had refrigerated wash cloths! Some unsupervised kids in there, but when I complained, security was right there, and periodically checked back. They were kind, but firm and very professional.
Pool was a welcome relief. Very clean and always had a lifeguard. Lifeguards were also professional and well mannered. NOTE: They do need to keep the kids out of the hot tub though as posted.
We would definitely come back to this great hotel. Bravo to the management and staff!
