We just returned yesterday from a 4 night trip to DC with my mom and kids. We really enjoyed our stay at Homewood Suites. On the night of arrival, we were originally considering changing hotels because it was so far out from DC and we were afraid it would be too much of a hassle getting in and out of DC each day. We decided to stay one night and see how it went after a trip to the city the next day. While it is about a 30 minute trip in traffic to reach the first metro station, it was well worth it to stay for what is included. Both breakfast and dinner (dinner only on weekdays) are included - and they are both hot meals (not just continental), there are two fitness centers and an indoor and outdoor pool. The staff is extremely courteous and it was very clean. As we were leaving, I told my mom that I wouldn't dream of staying at another place in DC when we come back because this is such a great deal.
