I just arrived home from a visit to Washington, DC and I can honestly say that it was wonderful staying at this hotel while visiting the city. The hotel itself is approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour from downtown DC, if one takes the METRO. The METRO is conveniently located a few minutes down the road from the Sheraton and the hotel provides a free shuttle, which is fantastic!
The hotel itself is in a very quiet, residential/business area of Rockville, right off the highway. The parking is free and right next to the hotel. Upon arrival, we were greeted with extremely kind hostesses and staff who were able to provide us with detailed information regarding the Metro, local restaurants and pretty much everything else we wanted to know. We quickly loaded up our suitcases and went up to our room. The room was very cozy and actually had french doors that lead to the bathroom (rather unique and fun). The bed was the most amazing bed I have EVER slept on in a hotel. The moment I laid down, I was out and I actually slept through the whole night which rarely ever happens, even when I am at home. The hotel was quiet, even though a large group of young soccer players were staying there. I admit that we were at first apprehensive about the noise that could keep us up all night, but as I said, the hotel was very quiet despite the large number of young kids.
The hotel does have a lovely restaurant and bar situated right near the lobby (access is through the main doors only). We did not eat here, just because we ate most of our meals in DC but I heard other guests make wonderful remarks about the quality of the food. The few meals we did have in Rockville were from the Rockville Town Square, a few miles away from the hotel (they have anything you could wish for!).
The one concern we had when we arrived was that our toilet would not flush. However, a few moments after we made a call to the front desk, a gentleman was there to fix it. It only took a few minutes and then it was perfect and they even cleaned up the toilet after they were done, even though it was perfectly clean when we arrived! I have nothing bad to say about this hotel. The staff and accommodations were wonderful and the price was not too shabby either! We will definitely return here again in the future.
