Overall, I had a pretty good experience at this hotel. The staff was very nice, the rooms were sufficiently clean and the pool was great. Here are the details:
This hotel is not in the greatest neighborhood in the world (I probably wouldn't go walking around at night), but its proximity to Andrews AFB and to D.C. made it a great place to stay for the price (I used Marriott points and it is a Category 2). The hotel is literally right outside the gate to Andrews and about a 15 minute drive to the National Mall on a weekend morning. There is a fence around the property with a gate to get into the parking lot, which I'm guessing is to alleviate guest concerns about the surrounding neighborhood.
The rooms were a pretty good size. There is a stove top, full sized refrigerator, and dishes in the room, which is nice for an extended stay. The room was clean, although the bathroom fixtures were a bit dated.
As compared to other TownPlace Suites (which normally consists of cold cereal and breads) the breakfast at this hotel was pretty nice. On the morning I was there, they had scrambled eggs and breakfast meat in addition to the standard offerings. The breakfast room is huge and has a pool table, which would be nice place to hang out if traveling with a group.
FITNESS ROOM / POOL
The pool was definitely a stand out for me. The pool has a basketball hoop and plenty of pool toys for the kids to play with. My kids loved it and didn't want to leave. On top of that, they had a life guard on duty, which is something I'd never seen at a hotel before.
The fitness room was also quite nice with multiple treadmills and ellipticals, as well as various weight machines and dumbbells.
Overall, if I end up in D.C. again and don't want to pay D.C. prices, this hotel is going to be my first choice. It was extremely kid friendly and offered a great value.
