Easygoing, Copenhagen-based business and recreational traveler who likes centrally located, tidy accommodations with access to attractions in the world's great cities
Staying at AJ's was the best decision for a late-autumn U.S. visit from Denmark, where I live. I was here for four days and three nights. AJ evidently hosts only three or four times per year because of a busy work schedule that keeps him away from home a lot. Even so, he picked me up from Reagan National Airport, only an 8-minute drive from his building.
AJ's place is a perfect location for tourism sites, restaurants, nightlife, and Washington's subway. The room was comfortable and equipped, and the bathroom was private and spotless, with high-end fixtures. I didn't have to share space, breakfast and snacks were plentiful, and I enjoyed a ninth floor view out the large window in my room. I was in town for a fitness expo that took place three blocks from AJ's building at the Washington Convention Center. I used AJ's building's gym every day, but bigger facilities like Bally's are nearby, too. AJ, who swam competitively, belongs to a pool at the nearby Grand Hyatt two blocks away.
AJ provided perfect information about the area. Buses to New York and Philadelphia, I learned, leave frequently from a stop one block from AJ's place. As a native of Copenhagen, I appreciated this because I had never traveled in this part of the U.S. and needed advice from time to time. AJ is also a funny, easygoing guy with cool friends and a life of his own that's what I would call an "all-American" experience. This clean, fresh, upscale place, underpriced, is where I will stay when I return to the States late next year.
