You can not beat this location with kids. So easy to walk to all the Smithsonian attractions. And everything else is a short cab ride away. The Subway is right under the hotel and well traveled on weekdays.
The hotel needs so much work. All of the rooms need an update. Broken fixtures in the bathroom, dirty carpets, ripped wallpaper. We paid extra for the balcony , and the view was amazing -- but first we had to clean the balcony of the spiders and webs before we could get out there.
DO NOT eat at the restaurant. Such a huge disappointment. Fruit flies everywhere, had to swat them away trying to eat. Advised staff several times, and they really didn't care. Manager also didn't apologize or offer any solution. Just explained that they get them often. ??? We rushed to finish and get out. 2 adults, 3 kids, $125. Expensive restaurant that we couldn't get out of fast enough.
Lastly, we visited the end of July. Saturday is Pool Party Night. ADULTS ONLY. So if you have kids, be ready for NO POOL on SATURDAY NIGHT from 5 pm on. A disappointment after walking the Smithsonian's all day to find the pool open to adults only....
