It was a busty week. I stayed here (for the second and third time) twice in the same week. I stayed here because the driving to where I had to be was considerably better (as in less traffic) that the Hilton Doubletree property I stay at in Sterling.
This is a very large hotel built in a sweeping semi-circle so there is a fair amount of walking to be done. The rooms are pretty standard but they are quite comfortable. There is a large desk situated below what I think to be a 50 inch flat screen TV. There's a wall panel with several AC outlet so you can re-charge all of your devices at once on the desk. The panel also has a DVI and a 15 pin analog monitor connector. As with other Hilton properties, the in room internet is free to Gold and Diamond members (there is a charge for non Gold/Diamond guests) that runs at Wireless G speed (54Mbps). I don't use it much as I have an unlimited wireless data plan on my cell phone.
There are two restaurants on the property and there is an HHonors lounge on the fifth floor that provide a nice hors d-oeuvres bar. The bar is relatively full and is pay-by-the-drink. The hotel uses the same space for the HHonors free breakfast. Scrambled eggs, breakfast meats, plenty of fresh fruit, Greek yogurt, and several different pastries and breads.
My major complaint about hotel services in general revolves around the in room TV service. Bazillions of sports channel and not enough movie channels. However, this hotel does the in-room TV better than most - it's not great but it is OK. Interestingly enough, this is a hotel in the Washington DC metro area and the TV service doesn't have the Washington Nationals TV network. The Orioles were on but not the Nationals. Go figure.
I'll be staying here again in the near future
