For the 4* property is there also a Pool amenity listed in addition to the Indoor Pool you have included? If so, then yet my best guess for this one would be the Westin.

For the 3* are you sure you have the amenities correct... when i search HOTWIRE for your dates i see a 3* hotel in this zone priced at $97/nite but the amenities are: suite, FITNESS, pool(s), kitchenette. If you're still seeing 'business' listed here are you searching for more than one room or for something other than the default 2adults/0chldren?

-Yes, for the 4 star Alexandria it lists both pool(s) and indoor pool(s).

-For the 3 star Arlington: Suite, fitness center, pool(s), kitchenette.

Sorry for the confusion.

p.s. I phoned the Westin, mainly to confirm the parking charges ($24 per night) and asked if they have self-service laundry facilities and the reservation agent said no. Of course, the person I talked with could be in error (she didn't seem real sure about some things), or maybe they have rid of it (i.e. Hotwire's info is out of date), or maybe the hotel isn't the Westin. Curious. Often nothing completely certain in such situations.

As recently as February of this year the Westin was reported as a Hotwire hotel purchase with the Laundry amenity listed. Another possible scenario is that when the hotel first started with HOTWIRE and listed their amenities, they simply read "Laundry" and stated that they have that, when in reality they offer Laundry Service (where you give the laundry bag to the desk and they send it out and it comes back folded). Don't see this error as much as we did a few years ago, but it may still occur.

The 3* Arlington property has not yet been reported to the board, and with a 55% recommended rate from previous HOTWIRE guests i'd suggest looking elsewhere.

Decided to try Priceline concurrently, and got 3 1/2 star, Crystal City: Doubletree National Airport for $90 plus taxes/fees.

Used the PRICELINE link from this site, of course.

Room subtotal $450. Total, with taxes/fees: $525.45.
