We stayed here from 7/26-7/28, so just a quick getaway. We have three kids (8, 6 & 4) and this was a perfect selection due to location, service, room size and the price.
First location - the walk to the metro station is 5 min max (about a block and half). We were able to walk to the White House and the Lincoln Memorial (about 1 mile /20 min each with the kids). We didn't eat around the hotel, but looked like lots of good restaurant choices.
Next, service - this is where they really make a difference here. All the staff are so friendly, accomodating and great with the kids. Nothing but good things to say!!!!
The room - this is why I really chose this hotel. We don't fit comfortably in a standard hotel anymore so the Executive King Suite is a perfect answer (especially for the price). Spacious and convenient (with the full kitchen and a dining area.). The bathroom was small, but upgraded and clean. I do have to caution, though, my kids are still small so the sofa bed was great for them. They slept all night, no complaints. However, I'd find it hard to believe that a teen or adult would find it comfortable at all as the mattress and springs were either cheap or worn out ? (but note super clean). So, not a deal breaker for us at all, just a warning.... I think I may have read in the reviews that they are going to be upgrading some of the furnishings soon? So may want to check up on that.
So, in the end, we will be back to DC in the coming years and I'd stay here again in a heartbeat!
