Our extended family of five stayed here for a long weekend visit to DC. We had reserved a two bedroom suite with one queen in each bedroom and a sofa bed, but ended up with a two bedroom suite with a queen in one room and TWO in the other. This was perfect for us, our two adolescent children, and grandma. The two bathroom were a real time saver.
We had great views from our floor. The kids could see many of the monuments and the Capital right from their room, and the Pentagon and Air Force Memorial were just across the highway.
The hotel is one block from the Pentagon City metro station and the mall. Parking is directly underneath the hotel, and the elevator goes right up to the lobby. It was easy to find just off of Interstate 395 across from the Pentagon.
The staff was helpful and friendly. There was an ice cream social going on when we arrived in the evening, so the kids were immediately sold! Breakfast was excellent, and the serving area was spacious and traffic flowed well. The only complaint is that the eating area, although very large, did not accommodate the number of people that chose to eat at the same time that we did.
We did not take advantage of the hotel's shuttle service, though it appeared that many others did.
I'd recommend this hotel for a family that needs more than one room, and is staying for multiple days.
