Overall, we had a great stay. We were in the area with the family and booked this hotel at the last minute for a great deal. We loved the suite size, sofa bed and the king size bed were very comfortable. Room was clean. Breakfast was very good and so was the complimentary reception. The fact that the DC Metro Silver line is opening on 7/26 is a big plus, the metro stop is only a block away, making getting into the city super easy. But even a car ride into the city isn't bad - about 30 min long. The staff are very friendly. What we didn't like was the noise level in the hotel. It is a family hotel, offering a great value with the sofa bed for the kids and the included breakfast. Given that, kids run around all day long and most of the evening into the night, screaming, stomping. The open concept of the hotel (one big lobby with all of the rooms facing the lobby) is only helping to propagate the sound. I wish hotel employees were more strict in enforcing the no-scream rules. IT didn't affect the adults as much as our bedroom was facing the back, but the kids were in the living room area next to the hotel door and could hear all the noise outside. Also, our room was facing the back of the building and our first night, the hotel decided to send in the crew to clean the air vents for the kitchen, which were 2 floors below us. They were very considerate in wearing head lamps as to not to disturb the guests, but they used a pressure washer at 1am, keeping us up the whole time. We called the front desk and they promised to call off the crew. The pool area was nice, but is much smaller than appears in hotel pictures. In the evening, there are a lot of kids there, but if you go in the morning or even early afternoon, you can enjoy a nice swim. I also thought the chlorine levels were very high as my eyes were burning. There is a lifeguard present. I also didn't like that the hotel charges for internet access. Come on, really? I know the hotel website says the parking is not free, but we did not have to pay for it as the gates were always open. Maybe because it was the weekend.
