"The hotel was in a nice, quiet part of town. Everything was crisp, clean, and updated. I was given 2 all-day Metro passes that came in real handy, but it was an uphill walk to the Metro station.

"Plenty of restaurants within easy walking distance of the hotel. Just a few miles from Arlington National Cemetery and the Vietnam Memorial, but allow at least 30 minutes travel time due to traffic. The room was clean, and the staff was extremely pleasant and readily assisted when I had a request. The free shuttle within a 1-mile radius was a plus, and the driver recommended a fantastic restaurant. The parking garage was also a plus. The only negative is that we had to pay for water and coffee.2018-04-07"

"The hotel clerk didn't inform me about the location of the ice and vending machines.2019-06-30"

"Great location near DCA. Our room had a bad odor, so the hotel clerk apologized and gave us another room. There was hair in the bed in that room, so we were given a 3rd room, and it was satisfactory. We got a free breakfast for our trouble, and it was great. All the employees were cordial and helpful. I wasn't aware of the $10 extra person charge; when I complained, the hotel graciously charged only the basic rate. I'd stay here again.2015-12-02"

Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
