Gorgeous full apartment for the price of a single hotel room
My husband and I stayed at WhyHotel Arlington-Pentagon- Columbia Pike in December 2019. We really loved that we got a full apartment for the night at the price of a hotel room. The unit was very comfortable with lots of space, seating, and good lighting. It was nice to not feel cramped like we would have in a single room. The unit also had a full kitchen that included pots, pans, plates and silverware. There's a full grocery store right next door- double win for snacks and breakfast! The staff are very helpful and friendly too. If you like Air BnB's but want the customer service and guaranteed booking of a hotel room, WhyHotel is it.
