I have stayed at many times at other hotels in the immediate area of this property, and prefer the two Marriotts, with the Hilton in a distant second. This is an older property and it shows. It doesn't give a warm and fuzzy feeling like newer hotels or more recently renovated properties. It was decent, but nothing to brag about.
The Metro is near but not really close enough to walk, so bring cash to pay for parking and the Metro. I always beat my Metro-dedicated colleagues when I drove into DC from Springfield... but then I had to pay $18/day to park at the Ronald Reagan complex. When they car-pooled with me, we could get in/out even quicker using the HOV lanes.
There are plenty of nearby eateries, including across I-95 at the local mall. Very close to the hotel is a Bob Evans, a Vietnamese restaurant, and a Chinese buffet patronized mostly by Chinese... all three restaurants have consistently good quality. Over by the mall is a small, but delightful Thai restaurant.
