We came to DC with our two children for a full week for family vacation. We did not rent a car so having access to the Metro was of key importance. The hotel was priced much lower than most in the area and the Metro was only a few blocks away. It is a little shocking when you pull up to the hotel and see how it is literally surrounded by freeways but with that said we were thrilled with our stay! There was no outside noise in our room. The Staff were helpful and friendly, especially one cheerful gal in the restaurant that my kids and I just loved! The rooms were clean, comfortable and had free wi-fi and a mini fridge. There is a movie theater and restaurants across the street from the Metro station and you can get to and from the Regan International Airport right off the Metro. We bought a weeks pass on the Metro and were able to pack each day full of amazing sights!!! Would absolutely stay here again if we travel to the area. We did not use the pool or the gym.
Down side: Pillows were terrible and the pricing of the restaurant.
