We stayed here attending a wedding. If you don't have a car, this is a great location as it's 2 stops form the Reagan airport on the Metro, which stops directly across the street. There's a trolley that will take you up and down King St (a block away) to endless dining and shopping choices. As far as the hotel itself, it was ok. Staff was average to above average for an ES. The cute ladies at the main desk on Saturday (June 7 at 6ish) helped me with a missing button and even offered to safety pin my blouse for me - they were def above average!
The manager's reception included 2 brands of draft beer and 3 choices of house wine free, everything else was for a price, albeith reduced. The "snacks" were generic hummus and a salad dressing-y dip, vegetables, crackers, and popcorn. We got there about 30 minutes before it closed and nothing was restocked so we had a couple of celery sticks and crackers. Breakfast was typical. The cook to order lady was super sweet. The only thing I'd suggest is the fresh melon (nice, not frozen) and the cook to order eggs. I had the omelet but it wasn't quite as good as usual any of the days I had it, not sure why. Still, it was great to have the complementary hot breakfast and be able to add some vegetables in the omelet. The pool had a lifeguard WOW - that was nice. Never seen that in a hotel. The room was typical but perfectly nice.
I would totally stay here again due to the proximity to the metro and all the options on King Street. We took the metro to DC each day and the longest commute was 25 minutes. Get the Embark app if you do this, btw, makes it super easy.
