We chose the Eldon based on three things; its proximity to the Washington Convention Center, the fact that all rooms were suites and of course the price. Just a block and a half from the convention center, if you are attending an event there, then it is extremely convenient. As you walk down a quiet corner of L street, your first impression would be that the Eldon Suites housed in a traditional federal style 1800's looking building, would drip with traditional luxury. Luxury yes, but anything but traditional. Remodeled into a sleek contemporary feel, you will feel like you are in an ultra modern facility. We stayed in a one room suite that was large and comfortable with a separate full kitchen/living room, bath and bedroom. The wood paneled walls are light colored and give the rooms an airy feeling. The beds are among the most comfortable I have ever slept on in a hotel and the bathroom spa style shower made me late several mornings, as I enjoyed a refreshing shower. Great dining is just a short walk away, as is the national mall and all of its sightseeing opportunities.
Just a few cons: there is very little on-site parking, albeit very secure and the $30 a day rate seemed a bit steep. The continental breakfast, little more than juice, coffee, donuts and bagels was $5 per person. I have had better free breakfasts at Holiday Inn. Finally the front desk staff was less that friendly at times. I stood at the desk for what seemed an eternity while one woman had her attention solely on her cell phone. One other thing that should be mentioned is that if you go anytime soon, expect to hear (and see) the construction of the new Marriott Washington Marquis almost directly across the street.
