We stayed here, largely in part due to a colleague's recommendation. Whilst the hotel may not be the most modern, it's in a great location and very close to Foggy Bottom Metro. We managed quite well as a family of four with five cases to and from the airport using the metro and found that we could walk to the Smithsonian and White House from the hotel. As mentioned the hotel is not the newest but the rooms are very clean and the beds are comfy. The area is very safe and is predominantly occupied by uni students. We initially had a room on the first floor but found that we could smell cigarette smoke that was coming into the room as a result of the smoking area outside being close to the air conditioning inlet. After speaking with the front desk we were then moved to a room on level 5 the next day, which was fine.
There's a great Whole Foods store right around the corner (near the metro station) great for breakfast and you should try the great Gnocchi at the italian restaurant downstairs. Another great place to eat is Founding Farmers on Pennsylvania Ave, so good we ate there three nights in a row!
