Reviewed 13 March 2013

First, the hotel. Good location - very close to the Ballston Metro and a 5 min walk from the NSF if you have business there. Lots of nearby restaurantsRooms (I had a king bed) are very large and spotless. Bed had 2 different types of pillows labeled 'soft' and 'firm'. Bathroom was large and nicely appointed. Rooms were quiet with very little noise from the hallway. And free Wi-Fi - not just in the lobby but in the rooms. I hate it when nice hotels scam you with 24h Wi-Fi charges. Second, the service which was outstanding. Everyone was super helpful and friendly. The most surprising thing was when my ordered room service dinner was 10 mins late and the staff member delivering it apologized profusely and said it was complimentary!! I was flabbergasted. Really terrific experience.

While visiting this Hotel, I had an awesome experience. The front desk staff was the best BAR NONE! I spoke with Sade, Janet, Kori, Kierstan and a gentleman who drove the hotel shuttle (i apologize for not remembering your name). They all were wonderful. I spoke to the driver of the shuttle and asked him where a local eatery was and he offered to drive me over to the eatery, call me simple but I was SHOCKED! He dropped me off and offered to pick me up, keep in mind that the restaurant was less than a 10 minute walk. This is true customer service! Each of the members of this staff deserves some type of award or raise! My next trip back to DC, I am not staying ANYWHERE ELSE! Infact, can I reserve now? :-)

I stayed at this hotel for 6 wks (2/6 - 3/13) and must say all aspects were excellent. The hotel is is very clean, and the staff went out of their way to make sure everything was handled above expectations. I look forward to seeing Ahmed, Vera, and all my other friends the next time my business travels bring me to town. Would recommend very highly to anyone coming to the D.C area.

I stayed in this hotel from 02/22/2013 till 03/01/2013 and it was just excellent. The hotel has very clean rooms and very friendly staff always ready to help with any issue. It is only within a ten-minute walk from the nearest metro station what makes its location just perfect for business travel.

I stayed here and loved it. This year we returned but had a room on the 9th floor which had a constant hum which was really irritating. The staff were friendly, breakfasts great value and rooms were large. Next time I would request a room lower in the building

Room Tip: Get good distance between your room and the air conditioning

Everything went very well at this hotel. They have a driver who was eager to take us to restaurants or anyplace else within their one-mile free range. They recycle leftover soaps and shampoos to those in need. The breakfast in the restaurant was good too, and the service. It was the right hotel in the right location.
