Here is our rundown of this wonderful hotel:
Room: We were updated to a 2 bedroom suite. Fantastic kitchen: fridge, microwave, oven, dishwasher and all utensils/dining needs provided. Comfortable beds (1 queen in 1 bedroom with own bathroom/closet and 1 king in other bedroom with own bathroom/closet). 2nd floor, room faced residential street, no noise. Pull out couch in living area, 4 person table and also desk area. This is a great option if you want some privacy and for families. Two couples could comfortably share this setup.
Location: Fantastic! Courthouse Metro stop right there (there are three entrances: main one near CVS approx 3 minute walk, an elevator in front of Wells Fargo approx 2 minute walk and an entrance right in front of AMC theaters in the courtyard behind hotel). The courtyard out the back entrance (other side of lobby) has several restaurants (Thai place was great!), a small market, AMC theaters, a couple stores in the courtyard. There are many wonderful restaurants within a 10 minute walk as well. Restaurant attached to this hotel and a nice sports bar about 50 yards away. Great steak house across street (Rays). Whole foods is three minute walk, Trader Joes is 7 minute walk. There are cabs that run up/down main street in case you decide you need a break from walking.
Staff: Helpful. Our room was not ready, manager brought us waters while we waited. One day our room was not serviced. Staff apologetic and brought amenities up to us through cleaning staff gone for day. Kept reminding us that they had cookies in the evening.
Breakfast: It was a nice touch. As everyone else stated, there is a good variety to start your day. You can take items to go in to go cases. There is more seating in the lobby area if it gets filled up.
Pool: Was decent sized and had about 10 people in it at time, didn't feel cramped. A deeper end 5 1/2' deep and shallow end with step entry. There is a lifeguard there, thought that may feel strange but it is a law here and he really lets everyone do their thing and is just there for safety. Hot tub was nice.
Etc: Laundry room was a nice touch if people want to do laundry. Small area in lobby for snacks to be purchased. Free green apples. Managers reception M-W in the evening.
This hotel is a great option for those wanting to visit DC but don't need to be right downtown. For us, it was nice to spend hours in dc but then to come back to this quiet hotel outside the city to relax. The Metro is wonderful: clean and easily accessable. The longest trip we ever took was 10 minute on metro to get to L'Enfant stop to go to one museum in DC. Take the orange line to DC (New Carrollton) and when coming home, take the Orange Line (Vienna) and get off at Courthouse station. Within 15 minutes of getting on the train,you will be back at the hotel.
