Hotel (Suite Style Preferred) for summer travel w/ two kids

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.

There are several Embassy Suites in D.C. and the nearby surrounding area, e.g. Alexandria, VA and Chevy Chase, MD. They generally have what you are looking for--two rooms separated by a door and a pool, which may be an indoor pool.

There are several Residence Inns in DC and in the suburbs. They also offer what you are looking for, I believe. You might also consider a VRBO apartment, though not many are likely to include a pool.

If you are not limiting yourselves to hotels, there are lots of vacation rental apts. in good locations for way less than $350.00 a night! Check VRBO dot com - particularly the neighborhoods of Columbia Heights, Dupont Circle, U St. Capitol Hill, Cleveland Park. There is a map search feature that will also let you see how close to a Metro station.

Compare the amenities of new-ish Avenue Suites (Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, TA rated 6th of 130 DC hotels--93% recommended) with the Residence Inn Foggy Bottom (New Hampshire Avenue, NW).

Read the level of enthusiasm in the TA guest reviews of each property.

The Residence Inn is 1 block from the Blue-Orange Metro Foggy-Bottom GWU Metro stop and Avenue Suites is 4 blocks; Residence Inn is 6 blocks from Georgetown, and Avenue Suites is 2 blocks. Both are near grocery stores.
