I've stayed at the facility many times over the past decade, but this visit shows serious deterioration, as shown by other reviewers,, I was told it recently came under new management, and it needs it. The carpets in the hallways (on the 4th floor, at least) are among the filthiest I've seen, and I've been in many third world hotels. My room had been refurnished and it was clean and comfortable, albeit basic. There are no hotel facilities, except expensive parking. Don't try to park a large van at the hotel. The ramp accommodates 6' vehicles.
There's nothing for kids to do at the hotel. It's best for people (like me) who have business in NW, or a couple looking for a (relatively) inexpensive place to stay in DC.It has a convenient connection to Washington Metro, but see the warning below.
Unfortunately, it's located on one of the very few strips of Connecticut avenue where there are few restaurants. There are a near infinite variety within a Metro stop or two. There's little available for breakfast since a restaurant a couple blocks away closed a year ago. Your choices are Burger King next door or Potbelly Stove two blocks away, right as you exit the door.
Attention: Before booking, check www.wmata.com. The Metro system is undergoing a major reconstruction over the next year or so,, and, if you want to use the subway, check to see whether the red line serving Conn. Ave. will be open during your proposed visit. Otherwise, you will be dependent on a car or taxis.
