Conveniently located about 3 blocks from the Friendship Heights Metro station, this hotel is a good option for stays in the Chevy Chase - DC area. The lobby was small but had a modern, updated look, with lots of amenities, like a touch-screen guide to restaurants and shopping in the area, a little "convenience shop" with snacks for purchase and a microwave, and computers with free printing for guests. Everyone we encountered - from front desk personnel to cleaning staff - was friendly and helpful. The rooms themselves were on the small side, but efficiently designed: the desk had a movable portion on wheels so that you could customize your workspace, the loveseat tucked into a corner had convenient side tables, and a small (empty!) refrigerator and counter space allowed you to stock up on snacks and make coffee. And within a few minutes' walk you can find high-end shopping (Cartier, Dior) as well as everyday stores (CVS), a Whole Foods Market, and a variety of dining options.
There were a couple negatives, though: The airconditioning unit felt as though it had only two settings: OFF or HIGH; and when on, it made a considerable amount of noise and the blowing was uncomfortably strong at times if you were anywhere nearby. And the bathroom towels were very thin. This might have been part of their environmentally "green" initiative, but the towels just said "budget" while the rest of the hotel felt more upscale.
