This was the first stop that was part of his "birthday week-end staycation." We used the Travelzoo special (King room, champagne, chocolate covered strawberries). It was very much worth it. The hotel housekeeping staff were very professional and friendly. Being an environmental professional, I love the fact that the hotel has made great strides in being environmentally conscious. The location and atmosphere in great. Accommodations were nice, the room was large. I loved the large bathroom with the walk-in shower. Definitely not designed like the normal "hotel chain" bath. Two people could function in the bath at the same time. The linen was very luxurious and top of the line. I was not afraid to sleep on the sheets..... they had that "fresh out of the dryer" smell and feel. The toiletries were Bath and Body Works. We ate lunch in the bar. I did not feel like I had to cut my foot off when I mistakenly walked on the carpet without my slippers. The carpets were really clean. The food was good and the bartender told us about happy hour. Of course we went back to partake in happy hour libations. I wish there were more Northern VA happy hours like this one. Good food, inexpensive but great drinks, and great ambience. The owner was there and very friendly and engaging. The breakfast was an added plus. I loved the ham biscuits! The cereal and breakfast bars were Kashi. I definitely recommend this hotel. Only a short 2.5 hours from DC area and close to so many Tidewater attractions. We are coming back in the Fall (I am craving that country ham).
