Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 good stay
I've stayed at this hotel many times due to location near my job. I live several counties away, so sometime I make a reservation. My employer does not pay my expenses.

Enjoyed the stay. The staff was very friendly and courteous. the room was nice and clean. The hotel was close to the metro. The only negative was having to pay to park our car in the hotel's parking lot.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by "Joe" Full Service Breakfast Restaurant Closed / AC
The full service restaurant has been closed for breakfast (their busiest day-part) and converted to a "grab and go" format... This is very frustrating as I use the full service restaurant to plan for the day and conduct meetings with co-workers... the "grab and go" format does not meet my needs at all...
Also the AC temps are pre-set at 75 degrees and you cannot lower the temps from the room... in the summer time this makes the room to hot and uncomfortable...
I love this hotel and the staff, and stay there all the time for business but these recent changes are very frustrating to me... someone is not focused on the customer needs but the perceived needs of the business...

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by djtraveler I've had better.
I've always stayed at this inn when doing business in the Arlington VA area. They used to have great service, breakfast buffet, reliable high speed internet, good clean and clean smelling carpet in halls and rooms.
Place has gone cheap I think. I had no internet at all. Wifi was so in and out a connection could not hold. They finally installed a box for Ethernet connection (looked like it had been through WWII) but though it connected to the hotel network, there was no internet. They didn't seem to know how to resolve it.
Carpets are the ugliest, loud pieces of work I've ever seen and actually upset me a little to look at it.
Temperature control was awful - had to manually control the blower at the unit under the window and the thermostat seemed to have no control at all. They did away with the breakfast buffet and replaced it with a menu order in the lounge area. Too time consuming for me, I used a local restaurant ... wish they still had the buffet.
Because this has been a regular for me for years, I may consider going back again (it's within walking distance of where I need to work), but for the money this trip was a waste. I'll at least shop around for my next trip which is in 3 weeks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rdl23 Outstanding place to relax
I wanted a good clean room near I-66 for a stop-over and chose this hotel. It was excellent on all issues.
