Four night vacation to tour DC with the family. I loved this hotel. It catered to the budget needs of a family with big dreams.
Huge, plentiful, filling breakfast to help you start your day right...but tiny area to eat in, not enough room for the crowd. That's ok, they really do their best with the size they have!
Free shuttle every 20 minutes to the Metro - awesome perk...however, the shuttle is a van that holds 12 maybe? And it services several hotels that almost share a parking lot. This means that mornings were easy, but returns were always tough - we usually had to wait for a second or even third trip as the crowds clamored into the little van....but that's ok. The intention is to do the best with what they have. And, it was a free service - you NEVER complain about a free service :) take it or leave it.
We payed maybe $70ish per night - honestly, you just can't beat it - huge breakfast, no paid parking...but we were traveling to DC...family vacation....we, too, were doing big, big, big plans on a small scale. We kind of fit each other. :) Staff friendly and helpful; on our second night we requested directions to a gas station and the front desk clerk printed some up for us and suggested places for dinner.
Would stay there again if one day I wanted to return to DC in my current financial standing. Lord please let me be doing better when my children are grown. I want to afford a fancy place in downtown DC with no 45 minute Metro.
