We are planning a DC trip this summer with our 7 and almost 5 year olds. We'd prefer a suite style hotel with a separate living room (with a true door or separation) so we can have a little space at night since our kids go to bed early. Realistically, our kids will end up with the double bed and we'll get the sofa bed!
We'd like to be near a metro and some casual kid friendly dining options. A pool is a plus.
I have been looking at the Omni Shoreham, Georgetown Suites and Avenue Suites online. Other recommendations. The Shoreham looks nice because it is near a metro, restaurants, and walking to zoo. Plus a nice looking outdoor pool. It looks a bit dated though (I'd like something clean/ updated), I'm not sure how much separation there is between living area and bedroom, and it's a bit pricey. I'd like to be under $350 a night. Obviously the less expensive, the better.
Two adjoining rooms at a less expensive, but nice and well located hotel would also be an option.
It would be great to get parking and breakfast included.
Any recommendations? We'll likely visit zoo, natural history and / or American history museum, White House, Native Am Museum, and some of the monuments.
