This was a perfect hotel for us! It's a short taxi ride from Reagan Airport and located only blocks from the National Mall and the Smithsonian Museums......also within walking distance of the Botanical Garden and the Capitol. Though the nearby delis close for the evening and weekends, the pizza place next door was excellent, and there's a Potbelly Sandwich Shop on 4th street about a 3 minute walk from the hotel. All of our gang gave the reasonably-priced subs and milkshakes from this shop an "Awesome" rating!
I didn't anticipate how large and nice the room would be! My husband and I were traveling with our two grandsons, and the room provided plenty of space for us. The queen sized bed was comfortable for adults, and the pull-out sofa bed was both roomy and comfortable enough for the 9 and 12 year-olds to share. Having a door separating the sink/vanity area and the shower/toilet area was most helpful.
I never expected such a complete kitchen.....a full size refrigerator with an ice maker, a two burner ceramic stove, a dishwasher (complete with detergent), a microwave, a coffee pot, garbage disposer, and dishes/stainless/glasses/mugs for four. Though we didn't do any cooking, the supplies were adequate to do so.
The pool and whirlpool were small, but they were a lifesaver to wear off some energy the boys had pent up after a long day at the museums! We also greatly appreciated having towels available poolside.
The complimentary breakfast buffet was open early for those of us who like to get an early start to the day, and there was a wide selection of food that was served hot and frequently refilled. From fresh fruit and yogurt to eggs and breakfast meats, to waffles, muffins, and danish that appeal to those with a sweet tooth......the buffet appealed to all of us!
Not to be overlooked, we most certainly appreciated the delightful staff of this hotel! They were eager to be of help whenever we had a question or need. Our room was lacking a corkscrew and nightlight......both were delivered in an instant! Our grandson was craving hot chocolate when the buffet was closed......a packet was thoughtfully provided! I sincerely cannot remember a hotel staffed by such nice people!
Don't missing staying here!
