Stayed here five nights whilst visiting Washington DC. I decided to stay out here because the price was lower than downtown DC and the amenities were good.
My room was big.. everything was clean and very new given the hotel’s age. The beds were comfortable and I slept very well. The breakfast was of good quality; probably the best I’ve ever had in an American hotel! There was an evening buffet too, which operates on a rotating menu, but they also have a food menu you can purchase from. They also gave out vouchers on check-in for two free alcoholic drinks at the bar, you can get wine or beer. There is a free shuttle to Franconia-Springfield Metro station (35 min ride to Metro Centre station) which leaves every half hour; you need to ring on return to request it. It drops off outside the station and picks up just inside the undercover garage by the taxi rank.
There were a few things in the room which weren’t up to standard initially.. the shower was leaking around the shower head so the pressure was bad; but this was fixed by an engineer after contacting the front desk. Likewise, the safe was locked shut so again an engineer had to come out. There was also no creamer in the room for coffee. These are all small trivial things which could have been checked prior to arrival.
All the staff were pleasant and polite.. especially one chap who seemed to be the shuttle driver AND the room maintenance guy. There is a pool too; very small but attended by a lifeguard which was almost amusing.
