The staff was friendly, helpful, cheerful and went beyond what was expected. The location, if you are visiting Arlington National Cemetery or Fort Meyer, is perfect.
We enjoyed the outdoor pool, although the water was very cold. Having laundry facilities on site was helpful for us. The suite was very spacious, which was nice, and the housekeeping staff always arranged our kids stuffed animals in different cute configurations when they made the beds each day. The kids loved that! Also having the room safe was nice to for peace of mind leaving our tablets and such behind as we saw the sights. The shuttle to metro station was also very handy.
We did not receive the type of room we had reserved. With two kids with special needs, this was difficult as they had looked at pictures ahead of time to ease their anxiety over traveling and what we got looked nothing like what we had requested- even different beds, etc. The staff was not able to fix that for us. When I came down to ask about it a little while after checking in, I overheard the person in front of me ask for a parking permit paper. We did not have one. We were just told we could park anywhere. It turned out that without the permit we would have been towed, so I was glad to overhear the person in front of me ask. They did allow us to park for free because they had forgotten and that was greatly appreciated. The elevators are very small and difficult to get a full luggage cart inside, but it is an older building and that may not be something that can be changed.
Nice stay .great staff
Nice hotel quite close to the subway and therefore close to Washington D.C. good place to stay if you be arounf with a car or van.
All was ok but the staff could be more friendly.
Location was excellent with free-shuttle to Rosslyn Metro, and easy walk to Memorial Bridge and W.Washington.
Was not given information at Check-In about Breakfast, which resulted in embarressing encounter with staff next morning. There was also no information about food provided in the Hotel Guide in my room.
The proximity to Georgetown and Washington.
Internet connection wasn't very good, we were unable to use it.
Good location, close to the metro & the city. Building is older but was clean with friendly staff. Wouldn't think twice about staying again.
