This place was great. We stayed here for a few days to visit Washington D.C., and it was a great base for us. The breakfast is the typical Residence Inn breakfast, but the staff were very helpful and accommodating. The evening receptions were also great. There was a huge group of people staying here at the time we were there, but they made sure everything was well stocked and clean. The evening reception was sloppy joe's, which our kids thought was fantastic! We didn't even have to look for dinner that night. Also, we used their grocery shopping service (a first for us), and it worked out great. They shopped at a reasonably priced grocery store, and they don't even charge a fee for this service. We went out and saw the city all day, then came back to our room and the fridge and cabinets were stocked with everything we had asked for. I highly recommend this! Also, there is a free hotel shuttle to and from the nearest metro rail station. That was how we got around town. It was easy to use and worked great. Also, we got hungry for a late night snack and called room service the first night (before groceries) about 10 minutes before they were about to close, but nobody squawked, and our food was great.
The ONLY down side of this place was the pool. They have an indoor pool available for use, but the lifeguard locks up the place when he isn't there...which in our case was pretty frequently...and if there is ANY hint of rain or lightening, thry close the pool. It's an INDOOR pool. I don't really understand, but that's what we experienced. Also, the lifeguard got grouchy with our kids because they were being loud...they are kids...in a pool...they're going to squeal...it's okay...and it was only 6-7pm...? My service ratings don't include the lifeguard.
