Although I booked with Priceline (at a very nice price), I was upgraded to a larger room since one was available - thanks to the very cordial staff. The room had a mild old hotel smell - well, it IS an old hotel that has been nicely redone in an interesting decor. There are great local dining/eating places in a university streetlife setting. Take the Metro bus from the airport for $1.75 and walk 2 short blocks to the hotel or the Shuttle Express van for $19.00. The hotel shuttle picked me up at my conference location and brought me back to the hotel gratis!
The main thing was that the room was spotless and the bed was extremely comfortable with crisp bedding. The staff was very welcoming and the decor harkened to 1940's in a lovely way.
