I had stayed here previously when the lobby was under construction, so I wasn't sure what to expect this time. I was pleasantly surprised. From the very cordial lady at the check in desk, to the lady in the lounge, and the breakfast lady, everyone I encountered here was extremely pleasant. As for the hotel, high marks for what's most important to me: Clean room, comfy bed, internet access that actually works, and an updated bathroom. (And the only hotel I've seen with lighted 'Do Not Disturb' signs instead of the ones that never stay on the door.)
The new lounge/restaurant/lobby area is really very nice. Comfortable, functional, spacious. Food was very good, too - both the hamburger for dinner and the breakfast.
Exercise room was pretty nice, too.
Only about 10 miles from BWI, this is a great option for a less expensive hotel than the ones right at the airport. I'll be back.
