We visited this hotel in October 2018 as part of a family trip to Washington. As we were going to visit a few cities on the east coast we hired a car in NYC and drove to Washington, this meant finding somewhere to stay with parking was really important. For this reason we decided to look for somewhere a little outside of D.C. but with good access in to the city so we weren’t wasting too much time travelling. We went for this hotel because of the free parking, the shuttle bus to the metro, and the overall price.
We arrived later than we expected and were quite tired so it was much appreciated that check in was easy and the staff were friendly and helpful. The guide in the rooms was a little outdated but the front desk were able to tell us anything we needed to know. The rooms were clean and tidy and housekeeping were really good. There was plenty of onsite parking close to the rooms which was really helpful.
Breakfast was included and was ok with a good choice but perhaps not quite what we were expecting. Being from the UK breakfast in hotels is quite different - biscuits and gravy are not something you would find! But it was hot and tasted good which is important. There were coffee makers in the rooms and machines available around the common areas as well as a vending machine room and a laundry. For evening meals there is nothing on site but there are restaurants a short walk away- though I would advise booking!
One of the best parts of our stay was the shuttle bus which leaves for the metro station and air port every half hour. This was great as we were able to get the shuttle to the metro and the metro in to the city in about 30 minutes. This meant we spent very little time travelling and had more time to see the sights.
The price was great, as were the staff and the rooms, so we would certainly recommend and will hopefully stay again. less
