We stayed here for three nights just to see the sights of Washington, DC. The hotel itself is darling and in a charming neighborhood. (The Vice President lives right around the corner!) The people who work there are pleasant and accommodating. Parking is free, which is rare for Washington, DC. Public transportation is walking distance away. We did not bother with the hotel shuttle. We actually walked to the National Cathedral and the Zoo one day, then caught the Metro down to the Mall. Put a lot of steps on that day, but it was great fun. Bonus was the 20% off restaurant food. We will stay there again!
