Drove from Chicago to sightsee DC, didn't want to pay outrageous prices for accommodations, found this gem online. We got there the Sunday after the storm and they had just gotten power turned back on. Staff was great checking us in and explaining the sporadic power, even went so far to call restaurants. Rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, breakfast was wonderful, my teens had no problem finding something to eat that they liked. Shuttle to Metro station was a pleasant surprise, we got the tickets before we started eating and shuttle was ready when we got done. Although the van only seats 11 we were the only riders both there and back.
Rode the Metro to DC, easy to navigate, got the all day pass $14.00, even went out to the. National Zoo. Great way to get a round and avoid traffic. We also avoided rush hour 7 am to 9am and 3pm to 6pm.
Coffee, water, and fruit were available all day, exercise room was clean and sufficient. They had a business center that I didn't have a need to use, pool closed a little too early for it to be usable for us, kids got about 20 minutes one night, closed at 9pm.
Had pizza delivered from Hot Stone Pizza one night, walked down to TGIF another night and decided the wait was too long ended up at Popeye's across the street. Restaurants within walking distance and delivery to the hotel, couldn't ask for anything else, great location.
