We visited Washington during our summer vacation and had booked the Avenue Suites online from the UK. We drove down from New York. The hotel was in a great location and just round the corner from the metro at Foggy Bottom. We were able to walk downtown to see the attractions within 20 minutes.
The hotel was very pleasant. We were welcomed by very friendly staff. The lobby was bright and clean. The decor was very smart with great photos of film stars on the walls. There was a bar (which we didn't use) and a fitness facility (which I used twice), with treadmill, cross trainer and bike.
The suite we were in was lovely. Separate living area with TV and dining area. Well appointed kitchen with fridge freezer and microwave meant that we could have a change from eating out and, after a visit to Trader Joe's over the road, cook for ourselves for 3 nights. The bedroom had 2 queen sized beds which were very comfortable.
We were able to park our hire car at the hotel for around $30 a day and didn't need it whilst we were in Washington.
I'd recommend this hotel, particularly if you have a young family.
