This was a great hotel for our needs. It was only myself and my husband and we had a wonderful time. Depending on traffic, we were about 30 minutes from the capitol and other area monuments. We were only 10 minutes from Arlington, VA. We were even able to take a day trip (2hrs each way) to Monticello.
The hotel was very nice. The furnishings were great. We had a 1 bedroom condo with a balcony. On one side we had a water view and on the other we had a construction view (children's museum is expanding). There are a lot of boutique stores and restaurants in the area. All within walking distance.
I do not recommend the boutique grocery store in the area. The only thing they carry a selection of is alcohol. You'll have better luck at the CVS. If you are military and can get on post, I recommend the Andrews AFB commissary.
We had three issues while we stayed at this hotel. First, we didn't have any wash clothes. Because we checked in @ 2:30am, this was not noticed until we got up the next morning. However, once the front desk knew about it, we promptly had washcloths. Second, our A/C did not work properly. But because we were not in our condo very much it took a few days for us to realize this. Again, as soon as it was brought to the attention of the front desk, it was taken care of. Finally, we had an issue with the parking deck. We aren't really sure what happened, but we never could get the gate to work properly. But when we pushed the help button, someone was always right there to help and opened the gate for us.
At some resorts the Member Services staff is very pushy and demanding. This Member Services staff is not that way. We had a Do Not Disturb card out the first morning because we had gotten in so late. The Member Service staff simply put a note under our door. I believe they also left messages (the light was blinking); but, we never checked our messages and they left us alone.
