Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BizTravelr316 Great value, poor shuttle
Good hotel for value travelers during busy DC times. Stayed here for the Cherry Blossom Festival. I would definitely recommend this hotel for families on a tight budget. This hotel is quite a bit out of town so leave early and make the most of your downtown time. There's a supermarket right next door so you can pack lunches and save money since DC food is so expensive. It also helps so you don't have to pack everything. There's also a lot of restaurants across the street so you don't have to drive much at all once you get there if you don't feel like it. Hotel is very clean - slight scent of bleach when I first ran the water (which is reassuring for me.)
The shuttle is a little tricky: if you're arriving via Metro for the first time, exit the North side and go down to the Kiss N Ride. It's sheltered, so weather isn't much of an issue. To use the shuttle from the hotel, make your reservation before you go to bed if possible.
I had poor experiences with the front desk staff and shuttle driver but they were not incompetent, just rude. They do the mechanics of their job well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jkd775 Overall great location
The management of this hotel is superb. Most employees were friendly and humorous. There are many dining choices within walking distance. Having a grocery store next to the property was great. Microwave and mini fridge in room enhanced our stay. Room temperature is easily controlled. Shower pressure is very good. Towels are soft. Hotel looks and feels clean. Free breakfast is very good and the employees work hard to keep it stocked. The shuttle service is good. Hotel is mostly quiet and peaceful. The only improvement I could see is a bit softer mattresses or perhaps a mattress topper available upon request... and maybe add a Jacuzzi somehow, for relaxing in after long days of touring the city.

Reston Herndon-Dulles Airport offered me a relaxing stay while visiting friends and earned IHG points. Winning all around.
