Stayed there 8/1 & 8/2. First visit to DC. Selected this hotel based on the reviews I saw here. Had no complaints. The hotel is old but maintained well. Kids enjoyed the pool. Staff was excellent. Gave us bus info to get to the Metro and we were on our way. Bus stops are right across the street. It would've been convenient to be next to the Metro but we were on vacation, no set schedule or need to rush to get anywhere. Worked out great for us.
