I was a bit nervous about making a reservation here, since most of the reviews were overall positive, but the few that were not made me bit uneasy, but I had nothing but a positive experience staying there! I felt the hotel was very clean and quiet. John & Monica were the first two employees I met as I was coming in and couldn’t be more pleased! They were real treasures! It is true that some of the décor or furniture may be a bit older (but not dated or in disrepair), but I much preferred it to some of the new-wave crazy color schemes that appear to be popping up at many hotels in the past few years. The main room was spacious & I felt that the bathroom was roomy enough, it’s just that the toilet and the door seem to get in the way of each other. It would be nice to maybe put a shelf underneath the sink vanity area to place a bag or something. I did have a slight problem with my shower knob, but it was repaired immediately, with no other issues for the rest of my stay. Housekeeping was friendly, quiet & helpful. The desk sits directly under the air conditioner vent which makes it a bit chilly if you need to sit and work (maybe should be moved to other side of TV cabinet?). The desk also had a bar underneath the legs that was a bit awkward, and I never could really get the lamp adjusted so that I did not get a glare on my screen. Temps were a bit slow to respond, but I think was more dependent on whether the curtains were opened or not. Did not use the hotel supplied wi-fi, but I had no problems with my self supplied hot spot or cell phone coverage. I took the Metro to Walter Reed because I thought the shuttle only went to the NIH (but in fact, Walter Reed is directly across the street from the NIH), so I believe that you could successfully ride the shuttle for both. I did walk to Walter Reed one day, and it is about a mile on a sidewalk with multiple street crossings. I did not eat the breakfast at the hotel since there was a charge for it. There were multiple transportation options available directly in front of the hotel. There is a Doughnut shop directly under the hotel in the Metro area. There is a CVS dug store about 5+ blocks away. I had pizza delivered from M&N that was quite tasty. I felt quite safe in this neighborhood, but this is a big city & you should be aware of your surroundings at all times. You can take a hotel elevator into the Metro landing. I did not swim in the pool, but went up to see it, and the pool area seemed quite chilly. I was on the sixth floor and was not bothered by the traffic noise; although you could hear an occasional ambulance siren. Overall a very satisfying experience, and I a pleased with my stay there.
