We got into D.C. the afternoon of July 4th and it took us and hour to get to the hotel from the airport because they had closed most of the roads. When we finally got to the hotel we received a very nice welcome and were surprised at how nice our room was. I was on the back side and very quite. All the personal touches were in the room, bath robes included. The bathroom was very well appointed. We walked from the hotel to the Lincoln memorial which was about a mile away, it was 97 outside which made the walk seem longer. If you want to see the mall in D.C. I would recommend something closer. This was a very nice hotel and our room was outstanding.
