Our room was very clean and kept that way by staff during our stay. The hotel was clean and staff was always polite and helpful. The shuttle to the metro was quick and the drivers drove safely. This is a huge perk when visiting the area. My only suggestion is to have more food options time wise. Getting back from...

Thank you so much for posting your very kind comments about your stay at our hotel. It is great to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Most of the marathon runners left between 5 am and 6:30 am and our complimentary breakfast starts at 6:30 am. Starting breakfast at 4:30 am or so is just not possible for us so...

We were in DC on family vacation. Wonderful hotel with easy access to all directions of the area. Shuttle to the Van Dorn Metro station is wonderful!! (Also, easy walk in good weather.). Best mattress & pillows ever! Staff very friendly and breakfast plentiful! Great value for the area.

Need a place to stay overnight on a weeknight due to scheduled house maintenance and wanted a place close to home (and school for my daughter). Have passed by this hotel many times and it got decent reviews, so I booked with a AAA rate. The common areas and our 8th floor non-smoking 2-queen bed room were well lit, clean,...

Not many bad things to say about this hotel. It truly is the best I've stayed in for over two years. The lobby is attractive, the staff is really nice and accommodating. Very, very clean hallways and they are interior hallways which is important to me ~ a female traveling alone. There was a vast selection of breakfast foods and...

Stayed at this location for a 9/11 motorcycle trip. The property has good parking and lighting which is a must when parking a bike.

What made it this hotels rating of a 4 was the staff and the fact that Suite was a Suite with a door. It did not start out with a good vibe, the front desk clerk was what my mother would call snippy. Anything we asked her (Yanny) about she came back with a short comment and her facial expressions...

I stayed here for 1 night while on business. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the Van Dorn Metro station; they also run a shuttle to the Metro, but only between 7am and 9:30pm, so it isn't convenient for late arrivals or early departures. The rooms are large and clean, with clean sheets and carpets, etc. A...

This is a great place to stay if you want to explore Washington DC. I would recommend that you take the Metro subway from Reagan National Airport. It is much cheaper than a taxi.

This is a good all around hotel. Location is good right off the interstate. The room was nice and clean, front desk service was good at check-in and check out, and breakfast was nice. We didn't take advantage of it, but they have a free shuttle to the nearby metro station, so you can get about anywhere without driving.
