"The appearance of the hotel wasn't pleasing at all because renovations were underway. It was not a comfortable stay.2016-04-06"
"The hotel looked like a war zone due to renovation. At 8 AM, jackhammers started up under my window. We had to drive around the building 3 times to figure out where to park, and parking cost $30. We moved to another hotel the next day.2016-04-05"
"Convenient to the Metro and shopping. I didn't realize the fridge didn't work until after my cheesecake had been sitting in it for a while. I greatly appreciated the complimentary reception and breakfast. There was scaffolding up due to a recent flood, and the area was taped off. However, it was a great hotel for a trip to the DC area.2015-09-23"
"We weren't told at check-in that we'd have to request housekeeping. Our room was a long walk down a dark hallway, then a convoluted walk around more hallways and an elevator ride. The lobby and lounge area were comfortable, and the hotel staff was friendly and helpful.2021-06-19"
"Convenient to GWU. Our experience was positive. The entire hotel was clean, including our room, and all the employees were helpful and pleasant. We enjoyed the attached restaurant, Chef Geoff.2021-11-11"
"Great customer service at this hotel, but I had some issues. The toilet leaked water on the bathroom floor, and the shower had poor water pressure. I had recurring and irritating trouble with the key card, and the elevator couldn't be used without it. 2017-06-21"
"Great corner room with a nice view. The only problem was that our room wasn't ready until almost 6 PM, and the hotel clerk was rude when we asked why our room wasn't ready on time.2015-11-11"
"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"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
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.
