Nice hotel close to DC

The staff here was super friendly and super helpful and based on them i would stay again. The room was clean, beds comfortable and amenities were very nice. The shuttle service provided was very nice and very timely. There was only one small draw back and that was the room did not come with mini fridge or microwave.

I stayed at this hotel for one night after being at a conference in Downtown DC. It was nice to get away from the noise and have a good nights sleep before flying out the next morning. The hotel was clean and had a very good deli/restaurant. I had breakfast before departing and it was better than the usual breakfast at a hotel. Also, the shuttle to the airport was free and very punctual.

Oasis in Alexandria

Pros: As I said, it is a class hotel with rich appointments, safe parking and is confortable
Cons: Parking garage separate from hotel. This would be a nuisance and a danger to women and others at night in Washington.
Location: There are no restaurants nearby and the the Bistro in the hotel is a bar with snacks. No continental breafast w/o cost. Business area.
This is an upscale hotel in a quiet area. The staff was efficient and friendly. I was only staying for one night and leaving early in the morning but it seved the purpose. It is always a pain to travel in and around Washignton, DC but this ordeal was pleasant.

My stay at the court yard Marriott in Pentagon S.

I stayed at the Marriott on Jefferson it was excellent!! I got booked at the Pentagon south,it was terrible!! It was late and they wouldn't take my 25$ deposit in cash separate from my credit card.The other hotel does! I couldn't stay!! Plus I was 6 hrs away from home!! I feel that I should get a free nights stay at least, from the Marriott on Jefferson. Don't stay at the Pentagon Marriott!!! In VA

This Hotel was not clean!!!

Cons: pay for parking
I ckecked in late, around 10:30 p.m. My comforter had blood on it and the shower curtain had mold on it too. We then moved to another room and it was dirty as well, food stains and brown stains on the sheet. Its now around 1:30 a.m. and I am going to my third room and all they could offer me was free breakfast.
