I am a Choice Hotels fan. I rarely fine fault with Comfort Inns, but I would have to say this was disappointing. Although only about a block away from the subway, the area around the hotel seemed less than desirable with few places to eat within walking distance--there were a few, but choices were limited. The room was minuscule and with a King Size Bed it made for tight quarters for two people. The dining area was very small and the breakfasts did not seem up to par with other Choice Hotels I have stayed at. There was a storm that knocked out the internet almost the entire stay and they could not get anyone in to fix it. So for the price I paid, I did not get internet service, not all the TV channels worked well, and breakfast was limited. If you are lucky you can park on the street for free, otherwise you have go a block or two to a private lot. The only reason this gets three stars instead of two is that the staff was friendly, and they did have a car to get you to the airport and it was there within 5 or 10 minutes of the time you needed it. That was a definite plus.
