I went to Washington DC on a school field trip this February. The hotel is a very good option for this type of trips, being so close to the main historical sites and memorials. The room was very nice, clean and big. One thing I disliked was that the curtains won't close completely (and this is a design issue, not that the curtains were broken) and I like absolute darkness when I sleep. When we arrived to our rooms, my friend's bathroom had all the toiletries and gratuities he should have, but in my bathroom I only found the ones outside the shower. The next day was better, though. Close to the hotel you will be able to find (one block, maybe two away) a CVS that closes at 8 pm. and many restaurants, like the Ruby Tuesday across the street. The restaurant is very good but I'd say a bit expensive. All in all, I liked the hotel very much!
