We have just returned from an extended weekend stay in the DC area for spring break. We preferred a hotel that was closer to Georgetown and the more interesting areas than downtown. We were very happy with our choice and I will honestly say I was surprised there weren't a few better reviews on this location. My family agreed we would all stay here again. ( 2 adults, 2 kids, 8 & 4)
The space is fantastic for any hotel, much less an urban one. Large bedroom with bathroom and closet unit, small fully stocked kitchen (full size fridge/freezer, pots/pans, coffee) and a separate living room area with a table and pull out sofa. Bed was not plush but very comfortable. Good towels, good bath products, and a hair dryer. TV's in both rooms with good channel selection. Trader Joe's across the street (literally) was a massive windfall we learned to love. There was a small park just down a block with open grassy area and benches - perfect for kids to run and play. The walk to Georgetown restaurants and shops was 5-10 minutes and several even closer options. The metro was also a 10 minute walk up and around, although we found Uber cars were always in the area and fast. We found the wifi to be good, although it did have some time-out/logoff so I would have to login the ipads for the kids periodically. The staff was friendly as we needed them and there was a bar/small counter for food service downstairs (limited). We were up high, but found the rooms to be very quiet from both inside and outside building noise.
While we thoroughly enjoyed staying here, if you are only seeking 4.5-5 star this might not be the place for you. It is well managed and cared for but it is not brand new/updated. The kitchen was convenient and is in need of updating. ( i.e. the drawers wobbled, stove was older and yes, wear and tear. I found the dishes and refrigerator to be clean but the drawers and floors weren't like home.) The space and the convenience of the unit is so comfortable that it was easy to overlook the outdated bathrooms - specifically the shower/bath. It was spacious and clean. There is a bar with a food service counter downstairs in the lobby that has some ok options, but I would say this aligns more with a younger bar crowd than family friendly or good food. Although we did really enjoy the french toast and egg sandwich. The pull out sofa was very typical of a cheap hotel and you would never put anyone over 8 or 9 in this bed. My kids didn't complain but it really wasn't a good mattress. No access to a pool.
All in all, I would recommend this location and we will return to this spot. If you're seeking a hotel off the typical mainstream path that is Georgetown convenient, this is it. If you want to head out for monuments, museums, etc - check out Uber and taxis, they're cheaper and easier than the Metro.
