We came to DC for the July 4th weekend and booked this hotel based on reviews - it was great. Our room was a very reasonable price and with 700 square feet (including a proper dining room table), a great base for our family of 4. Only a short walk to the Foggy Bottom metro, loads of restaurants nearby and a few blocks to Trader Joe's (a Whole Foods is opening soon down the street too). The staff could not do enough for us! Also it was a bonus to have a lifeguard on duty at the outdoor pool.
Some reviews mentioned the noise of ambulances, etc (as the GMU hospital is across the street), but being city dwellers, we didn't notice a thing.
