We greatly enjoyed our stay here during the Cherry Blossom Festival. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. For example, during the breakfast they anticipated big rush and on our way down we were guided from the elevator to a separate room with breakfast arrangements. Thus we did not have to face the problems at all. Overall, the front-desk offers great tips and suggestions for your travel in DC. The shuttle to metro runs every 20 minute and we found that a great way to commute.
The room was very clean and the decor was attractive to us. It was great to have the kitchen and have it fully stocked. We enjoyed the view and our daughter was excited to see planes, trains and automobiles outside the window.It was amazingly quiet.
There are a lot of restaurants within walking distance and the area is very upscale and safe.
My only complaint is the pricey parking charge - 24 USD/day. There are some free public parkings but they were too far away for all practicality.
Finally I give it a 5 star despite this. Definitely recommended for a family visiting DC. You will enjoy your stay here.
