Their staff have changed in the past 2 years, not quite as warm as the old staff. But it's a great hotel with nice rooms. I love the walk-in showers. If you like fast food, there are at least half a dozen across the street. There is also a decent BBQ and Mexican food place on the other side of the parking lot. Their location is convenient to IAD. There are ample power outlets in the room.
One improvement needed are the blackout drapes. I always have a hard time getting the room sufficiently dark after arriving at 7am and wanting to sleep during the day. However, their staff are quiet and I've never been awoken from hall noise while sleeping...unless put in a room adjacent to the ice machine. They have been good about moving me when this happens.
There is a decent restaurant on premisis; Bob O's. They have an afternoon happy hour with drink and app specials. The food is good and the atmosphere is comfortable.
Their shuttle service to IAD is very dependable. If you ask, they can drop you off at the Smithsonian's Udvar Hazy museum nearby. It's a great place if you like history of air and space.More
