Of all the good things about the hotel, the staff stood out most of all. Everyone, from the front desk to the cleaning crew, were friendly, helpful and efficient. Even though it was a busy weekend (Marine Corps Marathon) the staff remained cool and calm, even remembering us as we came and went.
The rooms were a good size and clean. Some reviews describe the hotel as worn or not clean, but we didn't find that to be the case at all - quite the opposite (except for the hallway carpet which will need to be replaced soon.)
Breakfast was pretty much what you expect in chain hotel self service breakfasts, but the staff kept everything refilled and the tables clean. The breakfast area is a little crowded when the hotel is full, but we were still able to find seats every day.
The Eisenhower Metro Station would have been close enough to walk to but with the weather chilly and wet we used the shuttle service. It's free, runs frequently and the drivers were very courteous. Free hotel parking was nice and about half the time we were able to get covered parking - the rest of the time we parked in the lot right outside the front door.
For the price in a high-priced metropolitan area, we felt like it was well worth it and would definitely stay there again.More
