Great for NIH visits
Needed a hotel close to the NIH, and this clean, comfortable, and accommodating hotel was closest. With a shuttle service, I didn’t even need to walk the 1/2 mile (?) to the NIH. Check in and out was easy, and the breakfast bar had food I could eat (I’m on an extremely restricted diet). My room was also very quiet, allowing for a good night’s sleep. Very pleased and will probably stay here again when I’m back in the area.

Helpful staff, clean hotel.
We had an issue that we were above a restaurant (1 of about 5 of the rooms are above a restaurant). There was a party and it was extremely noisy. My wife asked to be relocated. They were booked and could not relocate us. They did however find us a room in a neighboring hotel. They were very helpful in getting us moved. I would definitely stay there again (as long as I didn't get above the restaurant). We booked 4 rooms and everyone else was satisfied with their room.

Nice, but don't take Room 202!
I stayed 3 nights. The first night I went to bed at 8 in Room 202 but could not sleep because every 5-10 minutes there would be a bang, thud, thump, bump or other sound coming through the wall. After trying ear plugs and pillow on my head till 11, I finally asked them to move me. They couldn't; they were full. So I took a sleeping pill in addition to my other measures and finally went to sleep. The next day they moved me to Room 411, which was nice and quiet. Otherwise, bed was comfortable and everything was fine. I was meeting my family at NIH every morning, so shuttle was great.
