The room was clean and had a nice desk and appropriate desk chair with a conveniently located outlet for plugging in the laptop and the smartphone to get work done. WiFi was great. The thermostat was easy to use. Everything worked except the bedside lamps. The retro charm was appealingly cute but not overwhelmingly cheesy.
If you're coming from the airport, you can take the Blue Line Metro to Crystal City, walk through the mall most of the way, and then exit and cross under the Jefferson Davis Highway. This should only be done if you're fairly adventurous as business travelers go and don't mind seeing the homeless people sleeping under the overpass. For the rest of us: call for the hotel shuttle.
LOVED that the lobby did not have a TV! I hate it at other hotels when I'm trying to toast my bagel and CNN is blaring away.
This hotel was a great value. There's a 10% off special when you check-in on FourSquare for the first time and show them. (Do this before they ring you up.)More
