We stayed at this hotel over Memorial Day weekend - I booked it for it's proximity to the Metro Station, as well as the value for a King-size suite. Through Orbitz, I was able to get this room for $100/night. The hotel is located conveniently off the highway, making it easy to find. There is a walking trail along Eisenhower Avenue that many people seemed to use for running, biking, and walking their dogs. The Eisenhower Metro Stop (yellow line) is about 1/2 a mile down the road, and while we drove there, it seemed as though you could walk on the path to get there if you didn't have access to a car. Parking at the Metro stop was listed as $7 during the week, and it was free for the weekend. This lot can also be used to access a nearby shopping center and movie theater. We almost didn't notice this since it was so tucked away, but there's an AMC, several restaurants and cafes located at the same intersection as the Metro stop.
The rooms were spacious and clean. We found the bed to be comfortable, with plenty of extra blankets and pillows. The space over the heater/AC can be used as a luggage rack, and there was an additional rack in the closet. The sitting area of the room had a fairly comfortable couch where we could watch the flat-screen tv. We were hoping for a dvd player, but there wasn't one. Free wi-fi was available.
My only complaint was the setup of the bathroom. There is one small room with a toilet/sink, and a second with a sink/shower. While this is a convenient setup, both rooms are located directly at the foot of the bed, and both had the quietest fans I've ever heard, so not much "privacy" was provided in that aspect. A louder fan would go a long way towards making the atmosphere of these suites a little nicer.
Our room was on the highway side, but we didn't notice much noise. We could occasionally hear other people opening and closing their doors and talking in the hall, but it wasn't any worse than at any other standard hotel I've stayed at. I would definitely book this hotel again for our next DC trip.
