I chose this hotel as it was cheaper than the majority of hotels in DC, it's outside of the centre but right beside the metro and only two stops to union station. Since I knew I would be using the metro for the majority of sights, the location was perfect. There is burger diner across the road which looks cheap but great burgers. There's not a lot in the area. There is a gym and pool in the hotel but very small. Limited bar menu. Internet available in reception with free printing. Rooms were good size and clean. I did need to change the room the first night as the air conditioning was very loud but no hassle changing.
Note for visiting the white house and the pentagon you do need to arrange this weeks in advance, I tried two weeks before but was told it was too late by the Irish embassy.
