We recently stayed here for a wedding and extended weekend. The special rate for the wedding party was amazing (I won't quote it here, but let's just say I've spent more in some Holiday Inns). Our room was spacious with two comfortable chairs and a very convenient desk/work station with plenty of electrical outlets for plugging phones, tablets and computer. The bathroom had lots of counter space to accommodate my wife and me. The bed was not as comfortable as we would have expected from an AAA 4-Diamond hotel. I was also disappointed that there was an extra charge for in-room WiFi (which was waived because of our Starwood Membership). In-room WiFi in this era should be free. There is free WiFi access in the lobby.
The Brasserie Restaurant has a very nice breakfast buffet for a reasonable price. We did not have other meals in the hotel. There is easy access to connected attractions in the Crown Center via elevated walkways. The hotel is also walking distance to several major attractions: the National WWI Museum, Union Station, and more. For families with kids, local sites include an aquarium and a Lego Activity Center (adults are only admitted if they are accompanied by a child!)
Note that the airport is about 20 miles from the hotel. Most taxi companies have a flat rate of $46 one way (or about $52 on the meter). Super Shuttle service is cheaper, but may take longer.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay and were very pleased with the hotel.
