This is our second time staying here. Wish we could afford it everytime as it seems to make the trip so much nicer. You can not beat the location. I have had nothing but excellent service from the front desk. The first time they upgraded us and this time the front desk clerk gave us our room at 6am for a 3pm check in because a room was available. WOW! We were not expecting that. We just wanted to pre-check in and let them hold our bags but we were pleasantly surprised. Judy the front desk clerk even let us choose our room in our category. Knowing a little about the logistics I picked the room facing Disneyland so we could watch the fireworks from our room. We had a courtyard room on the 5th floor. The monorail whizzed by our room...our 6 yr old would run to the balcony every time he would here it coming. You didn't here anything when the door to the balcony was closed. And what can I say about the location. The private entrance to DCA is priceless, and the extra magic morning hour too! Wish we could afford this hotel every time. We absolutely love this hotel for it's location and great staff.
