Stayed during an obviously very busy time, with lots of school kids in town. Booked this hotel for convenience (because it was supposedly only 1-2 blocks from a Metro station) and because there were not many inexpensive hotels with rooms available for 3-night stay. Well, the Metro is more like 4 blocks away (I guess a 'block' is subjective, but this hotel is definitely more than 1 block from the Metro station). Room was adequate. Bathroom was very tiny and cramped. Suggestion: Mount the toilet paper roll on the back of the door -- it'll require less contortions to reach. Lucked out and had a room at the end of the hall, so not very noisy (although, a bunch of kids in the room next door could be clearly heard until 11pm when they quieted down). Definitely issues with the room door -- you need to make sure it is completely closed, and locked when you leave. Door seemed to close, but if you didn't check it you'd be leaving your room door slightly ajar. Got the special room+breakfast deal (+$10/day for breakfast for 2). Breakfast buffet was excellent! Nearby restaurants and movie theaters enhance the location.
