It kinda felt like you were in the place to be when you walk into the lobby. Very contemporary, sleek, but welcoming feel. Man, this place is busy! Lots of people hanging out at the bar--every night really, not just on Saturday when we checked in; but in the best possible-people watching kind of way. I totally felt like we belonged there in our tourist gear and 9 and 6 year old girls in tow. Our room was small, but totally functional for our family. It would be too tight if you needed a pack-n-play or if you don't like to put your clothes in the closet and keep them in the suitcase. I was worried about the bathroom/privacy issue based on other reviews I had read, but it was perfectly fine. The sink area is in view of the one bed, but the toilet is separated by that area by a glass/frosted door and then the shower is separated from the toilet by a partial door/curtain. I don't feel I heard "bathroom" noises any more than I do when we stay in a hotel that has an actual wall separating the bathroom, unless it has been a bigger suite. The double beds were fine for us, and there was a little window seat area that our 6 year old decided to sleep on. Yes, some light comes through the shutters in the am, but I feel this would be an issue if you are used to sleeping in a room with windows that totally block out the light. We asked for 2 extra bath towel and they brought us a bigger pile. We could have used a couple extra places to hang the towels used and unused, but we managed. Everything is close to here. The Metro stop being so close is such a plus. It's not a necessity, since you WILL walk a ton in DC, but it was nice knowing that at the end of a long day, that once we got off at our stop, we only had a block left to go! Breakfast for the 4 of us at the hotel was $71--but we expect that staying in the city. I loved people watching/eavesdropping in this location. I loved hearing conversations about "networking" and wanting a job that is "editorial and political," and all by a bunch of 20-30 year old somethings. The uniform of choice for the locals seems to be suit and tie for the males and a cute little dress that you'd where to a wedding reception for the females. If you have little ones, be careful when crossing the street in the circle. Just because the traffic is stopped in the outer circle, doesn't mean it's stopped for the inner circle. Our 6 year old stopped just in time to realize that the "walk" sign was not on for her to continue crossing when she reached the median. Anyway, we totally enjoyed the hotel and the area!
