We stayed at the hotel for just one night. Room was clean, spacious. Location is very good. Just a few blocks to the White House and 4 or 5 to subway. Whole Foods around a corner :) The only problem we had was with breakfast. Since we were traveling with 2 and 6 year old kids we chose the breakfast included option. When I called the hotel to confirm I was told that only 2 adults per room will get the breakfast vouchers and that it would be a full buffet breakfast. Kids eat free. When we got to the restaurant the hostess informed us that kids do eat free but NOT from the buffet but from a special kids menu. By the time the waitress arrived my sister and brother-in-law got up and served themselves. Since the kids were hungry my sister gave them some of the food from her plate. When the waitress came she was visibly upset and wanted to charge us $8 for each kid for eating from the buffet!!!!! They didn't even have plates for god's sake! They were eating from my sister plate! Can you see a 2 year old serving himself from a buffet bar! When I told the waitress we would order breakfast for the children from the free breakfast menu she got offensive! At the end we were not charged extra for the 2 kids. She took it off the bill but made us feel like she gave us some kind of favor!!! The whole breakfast thing was unnecessarily confusing and could have been altogether avoided. Otherwise our stay was OK.
