We stayed at this hotel after moving from a downtown location. We traveled with 2 boys (ages 7 and 9). The hotel is a little dated but very clean and comfortable. From a family perspective, there are some great benefits:
1. The all-suite is really nice. Kids slept on hide-a-bed in living room and were thrilled to be able to watch their own TV. mom & dad enjoyed king bedroom and some privacy. Room included small fridge, microwave and coffee pot.
2. The evening reception included free drinks (yes alcoholic too) and snacks. Kids loves the popcorn and chips. We enjoyed some wine and beer.
3. Breakfast included: the food is still "made for the masses" but OK. The omelet line was kind of long and they still use imitation egg so it tastes about the same as the scrambled eggs on the buffet. But it also included fresh fruit, cereal and pastries. All said, good deal for family of 4.
4. The staff was incredibly helpful! When we checked in they gave us a map of the area and a list of the restaurants the free shuttle will take you to. That was a great benefit and we used it several times. We had to wait a little to get picked up but not too long.
The hotel is located across the river from DC but close enough to get there. We ended up taking a cab because it was cheaper than 4 metro tickets and it was only $10 with tip.
All said, this was a great family hotel (kids loved the pool) and a solid value.
