We loved having a separate living room and bedroom on our family stay. We were able to fit all 3 kids in the living area - 2 in the sofa bed and one on a rollaway, which meant we were able to have a grown-up bedroom all to ourselves! The kitchen was well equipped as was the rest of the hotel. Nice breakfast, great swimming pool and fitness suite. We were surprised by how good the evening dinner was - a few choices and all of them tasty plus the complimentary glass of wine/beer was most welcome after a long day sightseeing in Washington DC! The children enjoyed the kids room too - Air Hockey, Table Football, Nintendo Wii. We used the complimentary shuttle bus to get to Shady Grove - it runs on demand which makes getting to DC very easy. All in all a great place to stay.
