We stayed at the airport 2 nights for the purpose of having a full day to explore the National Air and Space Museum Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center. Hotel had a free airport shuttle that was great and for the airport there is a bus, 1 stop to the Museum. It worked perfectly getting to and back to hotel. We came off a cruise from Fort Lauderdale and hotel had a self service laundry which allowed us to launder all our clothes. Hotel was clean and well stocked with all our needs. Staff were friendly and helpful and free shuttle to airport was a great help to us. We enjoyed our stay there before going into downtown Washington.
