If you like to walk, this is a perfect location for you. Just blocks from the mall and all of the sites. If you don't like to walk or want to enjoy the club scene the Metro Center station is attached to the building and the redline is just steps away. Anything in a cab is less than $10. $15 for Arlington and Alexandria. China town and all the shops are just a couple blocks away. Room was clean, service was very nice. Everything in the hotel is expensive because corner stores are nowhere to be seen. CVS is a few blocks away. Bring your own water and store it in the fridge it's $2.99 for smaller ones and $5.99 for the larger ones downstairs :/ just to give you an idea. The buffet was kind-of stale at 10:30. I recommend going earlier or getting room-service...prices are comparable. The rooms facing the inside have permanent daylight, but we didn't want to get stuck on the outside next to all of the construction noise. They are building 3-5 buildings right across the street. But we managed ok.
