We stayed 3 nights in October with our two children. We arrived prior to our check in time and the reception staff went out of their way to get our room sorted as quickly as possible and had us in early, which was wonderful. Room was a really good size on the 8th floor. Two double beds, large lounge area. Spacious bathroom and loads of space to put your baggage (four large suitcases). Very clean. We were there when the government shut down had just started, but the staff made sure we had other options to visit. Location is great, just a couple of blocks from the White House and easy walk around to the Lincoln Memorial, WWII Memorial, Washington Memorial, Reflective Pool etc. We also walked from the hotel up to the Capital Building, Newseum and Spy Museum (all worth a visit). For us though, the level of assistance and friendliness from the staff always make a difference and we were really well looked after here. The staff made the kids feel welcome at all times. This was the last stop on a four week trip for us so we were a little tired, thus choosing to eat breakfast and dinner at the hotel each day/night. This was an easy choice anyway because the food was so good, especially the breakfast. Great choice and even a second menu with healthier low calories choices should you wish. Concierge was great with organising taxi for us to take us and our many luggage items off to the airport. Probably only issue, was the beds were a little squishy, but still slept ok. Will definitely stay here should I visit again.
