We visited this location two years ago and when coming back to DC for an extended stay we decided to look no further. This time we took advantage of services that we didn't the first time. The pool has a life guard - not that I would leave my kids alone, but a huge plus for a hotel. The washer and dryers are free - a huge huge plus when vacationing with your family and lessens the packing. Also the shuttle service, this area would be my only complaint, though a minor one, the service itself is free and it's great, you call and they come and pick you up. My only minor complaint is that when multiple families are waiting for the shuttle at the end of their day the driver has no idea who has called first and the family that you are standing next two have no idea that you are waiting for the same shuttle. I do wish that there was a better system, on more than one occasion we got "cut" in line by another family, I'd love to see the driver show up and say McDonald family next or McDonald family party of 5 or even when you call you are told that there are two families in front of you, so that you would be aware that you are not next. Again, this would be my only complaint. The hotel is extremely clean, breakfast is great, it was very quiet this time, no kids running as others have complained about, overall a great experience and will stay again if and when we are in DC.
