This new College Park hotel is the first full-service hotel to open in the area in decades, and it's located just across the street from the entrance to UMD's campus. The 4-star property features nearly 300 rooms along with multiple restaurants, plenty of events space and, coming this spring, a Red Door Salon & Spa from Elizabeth Arden. 

Rooms are spacious, starting at 450 square feet, and feature plush bedding, 40-inch flat-panel TVs, floor-to-ceiling windows, bathrobes and in-room coffeemakers; some suites also offer kitchenettes. The hotel also features free Wi-Fi, an indoor pool, a fitness center and an executive lounge on the upper floors. 

Dining options include Kapnos Taverna, helmed by former "Top Chef" contestant George Pagonis (and owned by another "Top Chef" alum, D.C. celebrity chef Mike Isabella). There are also a steakhouse and seafood restaurant, a more casual pizza restaurant, a bagel shop and a lobby bar on site. 

Guests of the hotel are within a short walk of the University of Maryland campus and Terrapin sporting events at the XFINITY Center. The Calrice Smith Performing Arts Center, Peace Garden and Jim Henson Memorial Garden are also close to the hotel. 

The nearest Metro station is about a mile away, but the hotel's complimentary shuttle will take you there and anywhere else within a 3-mile radius of the hotel, including the Maryland MARC train between D.C. and Baltimore.

The location was perfect for our needs. The hotel is beautiful and the on-site restaurants great. The staff tried hard to be helpful but were often mis-informed or not knowledgeable - most seemed to be students new to the job. The person who checked us in was delightful and super helpful, most answers to questions after that encounter were 'I don't know' with no initiative to ask another employee or manager.

We loved the hotel and would like to come back as we attend swim meets there several times a year but had a bad experience with the shuttle - we were dropped at the Eppley Center for the first night of a 4-day swim meet on Thursday night with the assurance to "just call the main hotel # when you're ready to be picked up", our swimmers were out of the water and starving when I called for pickup but it took 40 MINUTES of constant dialing (would ring & ring and then give mailbox full reply no matter what part of hotel service I selected) before someone answered who said they'd been too busy to answer the phone and the shuttle would come as soon as it could. 25 minutes later a very nice young man came to get us but waiting over an hour for the ride when the shuttle was a plus of booking this hotel was very disappointing, We had to drive back and forth the rest of the weekend not knowing if we would have the same problem again if using the shuttle.

My deal through Travelzoo made it affordable, but I don't know if I would go back at full price. Bar staff needs some help.
