There I was, expecting to fly all the way from the west coast to Raleigh a couple of weeks ago, but only got as far as Dulles, and it took me until 2 am to get there. My plan to rent a car and start driving was thwarted when I discovered the rental car desks were closed. So I picked up one of those phones in baggage claim and dialed this place because it sounded close.
They were soooo nice, first of all -- when we realized their shuttle had stopped running they cut me a break on the room charge to help defray the cost of the $20 cab fare (including tip). And really the cost wasn't that bad in the first place -- $69.99 for a DC airport hotel (about 6 miles away).
I arrived at 3:00 am, completely exhausted. The hotel lobby was smallish but clean and welcoming, and I already knew the desk staff was friendly and competent. My room was also clean and comfortable. I only slept between about 4:00 and 6:30, but it was perfectly quiet during those hours -- even the heater / a/c in the room wasn't noisy when it came on like they often are.
Free breakfast was decent -- typical muffin/bagel/toaster waffle/cereal kind of thing. Then back to the airport -- this time on the free shuttle. It wasn't a very long stay, granted, but it was a bright spot in a miserable trip. Down sides: they did have wireless, but it was VERRRY slow -- at least that night. Shower pressure was very light, and towels weren't that soft and fluffy. And shuttles don't run at 2:00 am (not that they do anywhere, probably). But really, I thought I was lucky to find it.
