I took my kids to this hotel after a long day in DC visiting the museums. It was a last minute deal, and the price was certainly worth it. There was a Mgr's reception with drinks and appetizers. Great for the kids because they were certainly hungry. I didn't get to have a drink because there was an extremely long line, but maybe next time. Once we were all in our room, we took the kids for a swim. Another plus for the kids! The lifeguard on duty was friendly and attentive. In the morning we had breakfast and it was amazing...better than any other hotel I have ever stayed. The staff was really nice, and the cooks were amazing! The only thing I wish was a little better, was the quality of the bed and the bedding. The beds are a little hard, but otherwise...we will be back!
