The hotel was well kept - spotless. The rooms are clean and a good size. The rooms have a small fridge which is great for storing drinks. While we visited - there was a heat wave w/ heat index of 105 - 115. We stored bottles of water for our daily sightseeing.
The fitness center and pool are located together. The pool is 3.5' in depth and narrows to one side. With any kids in the pool it is difficult to do laps. We selected the hotel because it had a pool.
The restaurant - like most hotels - was expensive. We dined there one time and enjoyed the quesadillas. The restaurant / bar staff was friendly and helpful.
The problem is that there are few other options for food - especially late at night. The hotel bar / restaurant and room service all close at 10pm. We ordered from NY Pizza for delivery twice - good food. We ate breakfast at Au Bon Pain daily. $23 there vs. about $60 for breakfast in the hotel.
The hotel is located on the same block as the NY Ave Metro Station. This made it easy to get to Smithsonian (and the Mall area), Capitol South and Woodley Park (The National Zoo).
As another reviewer noted, there is a lot of construction going on nearby and you can hear that and the trains, but construction ends in the evening - so it's not a problem.
