I used your hotel for myself and my granddaughter. We found the location to be very convenient, the staff helpful and friendly, and a clean, comfortable room. My granddaughter enjoyed the pool at the end of a busy day.

Great for a group trip.

Perfect for a group trip to DC. This was a Girl Scout trip and most of the girls were under 12 so we took advantage of eating free in the restaurant. Adjoining rooms allowed some grown up freedom for the older girls. Adults loved the Keurig in each room! Necessary when traveling with Girl Scouts! The rooftop pool has an inspiring view of the Capital at night!

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Purchase day pass for Metro $14. Cut out walk time and decrease group fatigue! All major sites accessible from Metro stops.

Perfect location!

If you're planning to see the sites in DC including the museums this is the most perfect location!! To the right you have restaurants and the Capital. To the left and directly in front you have museums and the metro which you really don't even need. Everything is in walking distance. Had an amazing time with my wife. Newly weds thanks to DC!
