We were booked into this hotel by the NIH. It was difficult to find the entrance because the sign only says Valet Parking. After we circled the block I pulled in and was told it was going to cost $22 for parking. After some hesitation, the valet told me I had another option which was to park across the street for free until 7am Monday morning (we were staying on Sunday night). Supposedly we had a larger room with 2 double beds yet it seemed on the small side. Maybe they were referring to the bathroom which was large because it was handicap accessible. The coffee pot was missing from the room when we arrived but housekeeping brought one up when we brought it to the front desks attention. There is a variety of restaurants within about 6 blocks. We went up to the rooftop pool and discovered it was overrun with a large party scene including drinking and very loud music. Not a very family oriented atmosphere. The hotel charged us for 2 nights and we only stayed one night plus the room was paid for by the NIH and should never had been billed to us. It has been difficult to get the charged removed from our credit card. Don't waste money on the Starbucks downstairs which overcharges. I think next time we will ask NIH to book us into another hotel.
