We chose to stay at this hotel as it was essentially walking distance to the places we wanted to see and very handy to Farragut West metro – literally on the corner when we walked out of our hotel.
We had arrived in DC from NY where we had a junior suite so to us, the room felt a little on the small side … but it probably wasn’t – it was just a standard size room.
Our room was nicely decorated in brown tones and the bathroom was a reasonable size with sufficient shelving for our bathroom items.
We had a desk area and a large flat screen TV and a small bar fridge. We had tea and coffee making facilities however the coffee maker had the taste of coffee imbedded in it so we got away with heating up the water for our tea in the microwave. And great news – we had a small bar fridge.
The are a couple of extras that Club Quarters provides which is a nice touch. Free WiFi throughout the hotel and also on each floor, there is a water fountain with chilled purified water and empty plastic bottles (around 600ml) with caps to get bottled water.
On the 2nd floor there is a Club Lounge where guests can go to relax, read the paper, watch TV and make tea and coffee or order snacks / food. Guests can also use one of the two computers here and print boarding passes or other items free of charge – a great help to travellers and a great inclusion for a hotel.
This Club Room is sometimes not available as it is adjacent to small conference facilities that are used by presumably outside organizations doing business in DC.
Across the road is a bakery and a sit down café and a couple of blocks away, several restaurants. Also nearby and past the park are a myriad of shops and a pharmacy (CVS) as well as Starbucks etc.
The Metro station – Farragut West is very handy with access via escalators and easy transfer at Metro Center to other lines.
If you arrive in DC by train at Union Station, unless you have a ton a luggage your cheapest and possibly the quickest option (to avoid the long line at Union Station waiting for a taxi) would be to take the metro to Farragut West. A taxi from Union Station to the hotel cost us around $11 + tip.
The other good thing about having Farragut West so close by is that if you need to get to Dulles airport, catch the metro at this station towards Vienna and alight at West Church Falls, then catch the Washington Flyer bus to Dulles airport. The metro fare in peak times will be around $4 and the Washington Flyer is $10 – pay at the airport. This was very quick and easy and the only effort was dragging our cases which wasn’t too much effort at all.
