We were a family group staying in three rooms over President's weekend. The front desk staff was able to check us in when we arrived very early (at 9:30 a.m.), and advised us that we were welcome to have breakfast (even though normal check-in time is not until mid-afternoon). So they already made a great impression on us, and the cooked to order breakfast was a treat every day of our stay. The staff that maintains the atrium and dining areas were efficient and did a great job clearing tables, and keeping the buffet tables, clean and well stocked. There is also a happy hour in the huge atrium, and since the hotel was fully booked with a lot of families and children that area did tend to become very noisy.
The rooms are in need of some re-furbishing but are very clean; rooms have microwave, coffee maker & mini fridge. We took advantage of the Whole Foods grocery store just a few minutes away for some take-out meals that were quite good.
We ate one supper at the on-site restaurant "Caprese" where service was slow but pleasant and food was only fair.
Bell services stored our luggage for us on our check-out day so that we could continue with our sightseeing for that day. Very easy to come back to the hotel, pick up luggage and go on our way home.
Metro service directly across the street was convenient and quick into the city, and we were only about twenty minutes by car to Mt. Vernon.
Parking is an extra charge, but I feel that this hotel offered great value for the money and will definitely stay again in the future.
Thanks to all the staff for making our stay there a great one!
