I'm Expedia Gold+, but I have to say that few hotels honor it i.e. with comp upgrades, etc. The Grand is Expedia Gold/VIP and upgraded me to a lovely suite and had room service bring me my own coffee maker - without my asking - which was ironic, because I recently abandoned my long-standing D.C. hotel for not serving coffee until 6 a.m. and not having any in room facilities. The bed was extremely comfy, and all of the staff - without exception - were incredibly nice and helpful. The location is great for me in terms of proximity to my office, so that's more of a personal preference, but there are always town cars waiting outside that will take you anywhere downtown for a min of $10, which is great. Lastly, I understand that the gym there is great, but I didn't get to use it this trip. I will be staying there again, though, and fully intend to next time!
