We had a great experience at the Washington Suites when we stayed there for 8 days during a military PCS. We were looking for something that was within the government allowance that would give us more room than a typical hotel. We have a 2 kids--2 years and 6 years--so having a separate room for sleeping allows us to stay up after the kids have gone to sleep.
We got a special rate on the website that gave us a 1-bedroom deluxe suite and a rental car within our allowance. This was great b/c we were returning from an overseas assignment and our car was in-transit. This saved us a few hundred dollars that we would have had to spend on a rental car. This hotel had all the small amenities that make a long stay much more comfortable and convenient. In addition to the rental car that was waiting for us at the hotel, the hotel offers free continental breakfast (pretty standard, but always plenty of options), a nice swimming pool that my kids begged to go to daily, free internet in our room, three computers in the lobby connected to a printer/scanner that came in very handy when we had some mortgage papers to sign and return (free), a decent fitness room, and tons of space in our room with a full kitchen, dining room, and living room. The kitchens even had dishwashers. Honestly, the furninishings in the rooms were nicer than I had expected. There was granite in the kitchen, 2 new and big flat panel TVs with plenty of channels, nice comfortable beds with good quality linens and a down comforter. Even the soap and shampoo were Bath and Bodyworks brand, not cheapie stuff. Finally, we got daily housekeeping services which is not always the case at extended stay hotels.
The location is convenient to DC and Northern VA. The hotel offers a shuttle to the Metro and local restaurants and stores, but we did not use this since we had a rental car.
Overall, I was very satisfied and impressed with what we got for the money. I would highly recommend it for families and those with young kids. It is also good for larger groups since you can sleep 4-6 in a suite. It was a great place for a military family to stay during a PCS and I would stay there again. It offers a lot of amenities and they don't nickel and dime you for them.
Higher floors have less noise from the mechanical sounds of the hotel.
