I was part of a very large group of college students on a trip to D.C. I was very pleased with the hotel. The rooms were clean, The beds were super comfy, and I couldn't hear any noise. I slept like a baby. The McDonalds really is right next door. I would have liked to have had a free continental breakfast served, but as the diner was on site, this was fine. The food was good. The only problem with the pub is that I don't believe that they were prepared for groups, and it took an hour to get my food, but when I got it, the portions were generous, the food piping hot, and it was good. I did hear the manager ask the head of the group how many people might be expected for breakfast the next morning so that they would be prepared.
My only complaint is that since my roommate was blind and has a guide dog, there is no place on the property for walking your dog. It does say that pets are not welcome, so the guide dog is a exception, but I was very uncomfortable with having to go the the back of the hotel at night to walk the dog. There was a strip of grass in the median of the road, so this served its purpose, but it didn't feel very safe, even though I was assured this was a safe neighborhood.
Other than that, I was pleased with my stay and they were well prepared to check in all 44 people in the group.
I'd also like to mention the beautiful view from the hall next to the elevator. The trees were changed over to spectacular fall colors, and the picture window made it possible to view them i all of their glory.
