My 80 year old mother and I stayed at the Doubletree for 12 days. It is located in a quiet area of DC and only a couple of blocks from the Metro. Our room had 2 queen sized beds, a kitchen with a 2-burner stove, dishwasher, clean refrigerator, coffee and tea service, sink, dishes and utensils. The room was spacious and clean, the staff was very friendly, helpful and always greeted us with a smile. The beds were wonderfully comfortable with nice linens. There is a continental breakfast Saturday and Sunday mornings. The maid service is the only weak spot we noticed; sometimes the dishes weren't washed or the coffee/tea/soap supplies weren't replaced, but when we called the front desk, they were always apologetic and got the requested items to us very rapidly. It is in a very convenient location: in the Watergate complex (about 3 blocks away) there is a Safeway grocery store, a CVS pharmacy, casual Chinese restaurant, beauty salon and bakery. It is one of the few places in DC within walking distance of the memorials (even from the Metro they are a long walk). There is a farmers market every Wednesday nearby with truly scrumptious things to take back to the room for dinner. The Kennedy Center was for us the real find: it has free public concerts every evening at 6-7pm with a truly wide range of talent from all over the world and it is also within walking distance of the hotel (or you can take the free shuttle from the George Washington University every evening). We walked everywhere or took the Metro and really looked forward to returning to our comfortable room at the Doubletree. My mother and I consider this to be one of the most pleasant hotels that we have stayed at and is certainly a value given its location within DC. I chose it using Trip Advisor and found the reviews to be quite helpful.
