Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike from Pittsburgh Better than expected
I must admit I read into many reviews and was nervous about my choice, but I ended up being pleasantly surprised.
I stayed here for the pool for my family to use while I was working and the rate was much better than in Crystal City with no pool.
I was given a room upgrade on check in without asking and found a spacious and well equipped suite. They also promptly brought up a roll a way bed for one of my kids.
Bar tender was very nice and attentive. Food was good (bar food) and breakfast was also good. I did not eat dinner there.
The pool was nice albeit a bit restrictive as I was chastised by the lifeguard for jumping in. Not a bad thing, I just found it odd.
The shuttle van to Airport (Metro station) and King street were very convenient. Very easy to get to D.C. monuments on the Metro.
Nice grocery store directly across the street with beer and wine selection.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stephen55 A great value
Nice, clean accommodations with pool and courtyard. Several food choices in the lobby and full grocery store right across the street. Shuttles to and from airport/metro and king street make it an easy trip into DC for much less cost than staying right in DC. Only downside is parking cost extra unless you can find one of the free spots. Still a good value even with the parking. Would definitely go back.

Upon checking into my room after a very long flight I found the room to be quite stuffy and have a a musty odor. I turned the air up in hopes of alleviating the problem...it dd not, As a matter of fact I found the bed linens had to same odor and not pleasant to sleep on. Though very glad there was no fire, it was not pleasant being woken at 6am for the fire alarm and having to leave hotel but understand the need. When checking out I was asked by front desk person if everything had been ok, when I responded that no it was not, that my room smelled the response was "oh" and she walked away. I found this very rude. I will not recommend this hotel.

Hotel gave our room key to another guest who walked in our room while we were there. It took 3 tries for them to fix the room key so it worked. Fire alarm went off at 5am and had to leave the building - not sure what happened. Not a pleasant stay!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Very good stay
When I have business in DC, I like to stay in VA or MD because it is more relaxed. This hotel was very convenient to Reagan National Airport and to the Metro, with reliable and friendly shuttle service.
Room was large and clean. Really cool how the hotel has complimentary loaner bicycles for touring around the Alexandria Old Town and river park areas.
It would have been nice if the hotel courtyard area had a little later/earlier hours. It's a pretty nice place to chill, but unfortunately my days were too long to take advantage.
I'd stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rayzer174 Nice room with convenient shopping near by
Good room and staff overall. Good shuttle service to airport and Metro as well as downtown areas. Convenient shopping for groceries/drinks near by.
Bar a little expensive with slow service.
