This hotel is within an easy walk to the mall and they have a shuttle to take you to and from the metro station even though it is only a five-minute walk. The night desk staff was so friendly. They told us about the hotels origins as an apartment building. Each room has a full kitchen. They got matches so our nephew could play with sparklers in the parking lot. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. This was a great value for the money. We walked across the mall in the daylight and at night. It was the first time I really felt I saw D.C. by going in and out of my hotel.
