We stayed here for two nights while waiting to fly out of Dulles back to the UK just after the ash cloud problems. There are some very good points about this hotel but other areas let it down:
The Good Points
- Every member of the staff is very friendly and extremely helpful.
- The rooms are spacious, very well equipped and decorated to a good standard.
- Free wifi and free wired high speed internet are available all rooms.
- There is a free shuttle bus to and from the airport.
- There is a free shuttle bus in the evening to local restaurants.
The Bad Points
- Breakfast is ok but everything is served on plastic - bowls, plates, knives, forks - the lot.
- Maintenance of the breakfast area was lacking on both days.
- The hotel doesn't provide evening meals so you have to go out to eat.
- There isn't much nearby, you need a car to go anywhere but the airport.
- The previous comment about hoards of noisy kids at the weekend is very accurate.
For a hotel that has such facilities, eating off cheap throw away plastic plates is poor. I have never experienced this at any hotel before, even budget brands in the UK. Had I known this before booking I'd have paid more to go elsewhere. If the hotel addresses this and the general maintenance of the breakfast area it will be a great place to stay. But these issues are probably enough not to stay here again when we are next in Washington.
