Worked for us

We had a nice stay at this hotel. FYI: It is one mile from the Rosslyn metro stop. That info is not clear in the hotel description and map. We were only there for one night but in general were pleased. The room was very spacious and comfortable. We didn't need the kitchen, but I think it'd be very useful for people on a long-term stay. On the downside, my husband found and killed a small roach in the room.

Good Location

The hotel is in a great spot for someone who needs to get to DC but doesn't want to spend a lot of money in one or two nights. It's close enough to be convenient to get anywhere on the west side of DC, but far enough away to not be too expensive.

Good but not great

Good parts; Comfortable room, easy walk to Metro, excellent business center w/ great access, decent gym, good restaurant w/in walking distance, housekeeping service excellent, most front desk staff courteous and helpful. Bad parts: Does not offer continental breakfast to Orbitz customers in spite of ad to contrary, some food smells in hallway. One front desk clerk was arrogant and officious.

Vist the Quarterdeck Grill a little more than one-quarter mile up the hill from the hotel for good food, decent drinks and a great informal atmosphere.

Good basic accommodations

The staff at the front desk was friendly and professional. I checked in before noon without a hassle, but I was too late to try the continental breakfast and l left too early the next day, too. I stayed in a clean, spacious studio apartment with a full kitchen. Free wireless Internet in the room, or use the Ethernet cable. The fitness center has a few treadmills and elliptical machines; no weights. The outdoor pool is only open from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The biggest negative is it's hard to find location, although it's just around the corner from one of the main gates to Fort Meyers. It's probably commendable principally for couples or small families who have business at Fort Meyers.

Quarterdeck Lounge - a simple country tavern with terrific home-style crab cakes and Chesapeake Bay steamed crabs.

service was very good!

Room was clean and service was very good! I told to find a market near the hotel. It was very helpful at that time.

Location bad, no room service and few restaurants nearby...

The price is right, but location location location, ugh! There is no restaurant in the hotel and there's only one close to the hotel, others are a good walk away (on the plus side, you can order delivery and then store leftovers in the fridge, there's a kitchen with stove, fridge, and microwave), and even worse, getting to DC locations is tough, taxi or driving is more convenient...but a times the wait for a taxi was pretty long. I will not be using the Venetian Suites again.

Easy business base for DC/VA

I wish I could have stayed longer! While the outside is nothing too spectacular, the rooms are great, esp for the price. Very clean, great linens, spacious, and really nice staff. Free WIFI, only downside is no room service but fully functional kitchen if you are staying for a few days.

Average but adequate

Staff was courteous. This is an old apartment building converted to a hotel so the rooms have efficiencies. Nice concept, but odd layouts and ancient elevator system. Tiny cars so only one luggage cart and one person at a time. The maid staff also uses the same 2 elevators, so one cart and one maid at a time. Don't stay above the 4th floor in this 10 story building because it will take you forever to get to your room and get to the lobby to leave or check out. No ice machines in the building and only 3 vending machines in the lobby. Yes, you have to take the elevator again from 10 to the first floor just to get a bottle of water. Plan accordingly!! Pool was nice but the lounge chair cushions are old and faded and they do not provide additional or larger size towels. Parking is limited and if coming back to the hotel late it doesn't feel safe to park around the side, it's very dark on the walk around to the front.

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

Request to stay on the 4th floor or lower so you can use the back entrance up the hill or use the stairs to maneuver in & out of the hotel more quickly.

Arf!

Not unless you absolutely have to. It's cheap I suppose. But then again most crack dens are.
