The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful with anything we needed. My daughter loved how they folded her blanket an set up her stuffed animals everyday while we weee out. The hotel was in a great location to get to see everything we came for. We did a lot of walking when we could and it was close enough to things that Lyft was very affordable when we wanted to rest our legs. Only complaint I would have would be the thin walls you heard everything going on outside your room when you were still trying to sleep. But with so much to see An do who has time for sleep?

Wouldn’t stay in again.

It’s 45 per day to park in a very tight garage. If you drive anything larger than a minivan don’t even attempt. Garage is very difficult to find. Pool closes at dark and not at 10pm like the signs say. Very small rooms and we booked one with 2 beds. Roll away beds are 20 per day although I booked for 5 people. Breakfast is 16 per adult. Not that great of a quality. Very local to all the attractions though. Only a .8 of a mile to walk to the whites house. Very safe part of town. We got better quality and more space every where we went for a cheaper price (New York, Gettysburg, Hershey etc) this trip. Felt very rushed and unwelcome by the staff.

A bit far from the museums and the White House if you plan to walk with kids but for adults with good fitness the walking is enjoyable.

From country to city

We came here for our family vacation... the hotel looked like it was updated but in some areas it wasn’t. For the most part very clean. I felt very safe within the hotel. You had to use your key card to get eveywhere witching the hotel. The staff was absolutely AMAZING! We will be coming back for our next stay.

Good walking distances

This hotel located in an upscale area. Didn’t expect to pay $35 daily for their parking garage but there is NO other parking around except an occasional full garage. If you don’t mind walking, so much to do on foot to see sites & shopping.

Pros: It's location to many of the museums, monuments, White House, Capital Buildings, and bus service to Arlington Cemetary
Cons: One king size bed needs replacement
We totally enjoyed every day visiting the many sites of Washington DC. The hotel was close enough to everything we came to see.
