The 1 bedroom was excellent space with a full size living room for our daughter with her own sofa bed, t.v. and bathroom. Her room had a frig and coffee maker, and the connecting door ensured we had privacy yet security with her. The view was not good facing the inside, but it was oh so quiet. And because of the space, we didnt care. The outside pool area is beautiful but it is hot. There are umbrellas but they are light and not great shade or small and not great shade. It is windy so that might be why they dont have much, but they should invest in sails that are wired in for some shade. Food was not great up top, though enjoyed the restaurant on the first floor. Pricey drinks, but guess what, liquor store two doors down where we picked up a couple of bottles of wine to put in our frig. Across the street is the West Wing Cafe that has coffee and bagels, fruit, cereal and yogurt for a much less expensive breakfast option. The capital is a long two blocks but easy and safe to walk to. Hint, go left to find the visitor center when you hit the capital. Took the short one hour tour with no problem and no reservation, easy and great first stop on our trip. We ordered trolley tickets and the union station trolley stop is only another 2 long block away walk, easy. Perfect way to get around. We were able to store our bags on the third day before switching to the Omni shoreham for a different experience. We found the staff at the front desk, concierge and bar to all be very nice. If anything, with so many guests, front desk struggled to keep up, but very accommodating. So a terrific stop for the family, especially with the 2 room option. My only concerns were the doors slamming so loud including our own, and in the room, the shower grouting which is sometimes absent or molding. With the obvious lack of ventilation in the bathroom, not surprising, and it doesn't scare me, but it does look bad. Hopefully with this review, it will be corrected.
