This hotel is very nice. The rooms are very nice, the beds super comfortable, and the bathrooms are awesome. We spent one day seeing the memorials, leaving the hotel on foot, and returning 4 hours later. A long walk but very nice on a warm day. There are no stores other than a CVS within a 1/2 mile radius.
Overall, we had a great stay and would return. Staff was very helpful and friendly. The only things which were disappointing are the following (but we admit these are minor):
Swimming Pool - only luke warm.... I expected warmer. No hot tub, which was disappointing.
Fitness Room - asked us to leave because my 11-year-old children were not allowed, even though we were exercising together and using the equipment responsibly.
Room -- no coffee pot, have to order always from room service.
Mini-bar -- no wine, had to always order from room service.
