My new GO-TO hotel in DC.
This is my 2nd stay at this property this month. After my initial stay, I changed my reserved hotel to this one simply because the first stay was so good. I stayed in room 1109 and it needs a couple
of items fixed. First off, the CAT5 cable for internet doesn't work. Since I had a wireless card, I simply used that, but prefer to use wired. Secondly, neither 115V outlet on either lamp on the nightstands works. Since I use my cell phone as my alarm clock on travel this makes ensuring it is charged overnight much more challenging. I did NOT call the front desk and report these items since my stay was so short, so this is on me.
Overall, a great place to stay. Immediately across the street from an entrance to Crystal City Shops and only 3 blocks from the Crystal City Metro. You can transit all 3 blocks via the Crystal City Shops if you prefer. They have a shuttle and most of the time when I walked outside for air, the shuttle driver would immediately ask me if I needed a ride somewhere :) Additionally, for those of us who are Starbucks addicts, there is a Starbucks on the Mezzanine level (short flight of stairs up from the lobby).
I spend entirely too much time in the DC area for work, but from now on, this will be my go-to hotel. [Less]
