“Great hotel for visiting the DC area with kids! Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2012

This hotel is a great place to stay with kids. The outdoor pool was great at night after touring. Mom was able to wind down while the kids swam...:)
The breakfast was good and the light snacks Mon-Thurs. evenings were nice also.
The suites added enough room for us to spread out a bit which is always nice with kids.
We did have a car and did not have to pay for parking, which is HUGE in this area.
But rather than try to navigate the busy traffic...we drove to the Ballston (sp?) mall every day, parked there, and took the metro in. Very quick and convenient. And the mall was nice to pick up last minute things on the way back to the hotel every day.
Oh...and fresh baked cookies at night.....YUM!
Would stay here in a heartbeat when visiting the area again?

I have a large family and due to fire codes are forced to get two rooms. We usually stay in a double tree suite because of this. But they were booked as was the hilton, so we stumbled on this and what a pleasant surprise it was. The hotel was extremely clean as was the rooms. I hate moldy tiled showers and was happy to see a clean room. We stayed in a two bedroom suite with a full size fridge a microwave and a stove top. They have complimentary breakfast. It's not fancy it has your basic cereals breads yogurt fruit make your own waffles and then some oth hot foods but for our family it was worth it. As an added bonus the had complimentary dinner from mon to thur. Again nothing too fancy but still a nice feature that our kids loved. It lacks some of the amenities that oth hotels have like an onsite restaurant or indoor pool, but take out taxi ,cleanliness and excellent service make up for it. Great place to stay if you are traveling in a group.

Our room was a king suite. It had a kitchette and living room seperate from the bedrrrom. The bed was WONDERFUL! The staff was friendly and it was very close to the monuments which is why we were there. Full breakfast with lots of selections. Will for sure stay again.

Excellent suites with separate bedrooms, always clean and comfortable with weekend special rates. The lobby is really cozy with a big fireplace to sit by. Can't beat it for a D.C. visit.

Room Tip: Book early to get a suite with a fireplace in the bedroom.

Stayed here 3 nights. Beautiful setting, very nice rooms, we had the one bedroom. Huge bathrooms. Nice kitchen. Living room seats 4-5. Full size fridge. The most comfortable bed we have ever slept on. Very friendly and accomodating staff. Breakfast was great and dinner was a complete (happy) surprise. Nice exercise equipment, indoor spa. Cons: Without a car it is expensive to travel to downtown by taxi ($20-$25 each way). Lot of restaurants nearby, but up or down a hill - too much for us! No markets I could see. Highly recommended. Great stay.

We stayed here for just one night in October. Weeknight rates are quite high due to USG per diem setting the "floor", but my teenagers have stayed here many times over the years of coming and going from overseas assignments and they see it as a second home. The desk staff have been there for years and always welcome us back by name. The suite layout is very good for families. Having a full kitchen is extremely convenient. The breakfast buffet is adequate (I usually pick up some whole-wheat bread at Trader Joes and use the toaster). The "dinner" on the night we stayed was sandwiches, but that was fine for us, and there was the salad bar. Contrary to one review there is dessert after dinner - cookies - but they don't put it out until close to the end. The fitness room has been redone in the past year or so; equipment worked fine but the room is stuffy as ever and would benefit from the addition of a fan or two. Some suites could use better attention to cleaning - nothing huge, but fingerprints on the doors and windows. One of the best things about the location is the proximity to a huge Giant supermarket and a Target - in fact you could walk to both, as well as to an Olive Garden and some kind of South American chicken place. Free wifi is always welcome. The lobby is big and comfortable, and a good place to work or hang out. I'm sure we'll be back next summer.
