Very nice staff, a great free breakfast, and reasonably priced. The parking charge was a bit much, given the location - not really a high traffic area, and paid parking was a surprise. Other than that, nice place.More

The hotel has a shuttle to the metro and it is about 4 or 5 exits to DC. It is a very easy commute. We didn't t use our car until we left the area. You can get the metro card at CVS in town
