We crawled off an eight hour flight from Paris, slogged through traveler-unfriendly Dulles Airport - and landed in a world of comfort at the Country Inn and Suites.
The staff gave us a friendly welcome, complete with hot cookies and pretzels. Just across the comfortable, country-decorated lobby, the breakfast room offers snacks and coffee drinks 24/7, and in the morning a decent selection of cold breakfast offerings and a do-it-yourself waffle iron. There are even shelves of new paperbacks offered for "loan and return". And it's all complimentary.
After depositing our luggage - full of dirty laundry - in the room, we were tickled to discover the coin-operated washer and dryer downstairs. That sure made the rest of our trip easier. While our clothes sloshed, we caught up on email using the complimentary WiFi from our room; there's also a terminal in the lobby.
The tub/shower has one of those funny hotel shower heads and water control gizmos - but these really worked! And the tub nonskid didn't skid.
Food options are not too bad. If you want more than the snacks in the breakfast room, or the fast food place (I think it was a Burger King) across the parking lot, you'll have to drive five minutes to one of the many restaurants on the long list the staff has thoughtfully compiled.
After a long flight, this was just the perfect place to take care of ourselves and our chores.
