The moment you walk in in feels like a 5 star-super expensive hotel. The lobby is classy, modern decor, nice loung with sofas, big screen, pool table, etc. The front desk people make you feel welcome, they greet you with a smile and choose a good location for the "type" of group you are. (in our case: one with 5 small children) Even over the phone you feel important. The rates are very affordable, pretty much the best deal I got for this time of year in the Arlignton area (I called 8 hotels) They have a nice outdoor pool, several inner courtyards with gazebos, patio tables and bbq grills sorrounded by gardens (nice private nooks for a couple to snuggle :-) Stores, airport and 6 Flags are 5-10 minutes away. Housekeeping was very nice, they greeted in the hallways and at breakfast. My kids left a big mess of favorite blankies and stuffed animlas and they fixed their beds with their stuffed animals and blankies just as I would at home. I bugged the front desk several times: Can we use the bbq? whats the wifi password? can we use the trolly? can I get more comforters? etc, I never felt like a nuisance.
