Reviewed 7 January 2014

Our family of five had a great five night stay here. We were extremely comfortable and it was great to have that bit of extra space. We appreciated the little kitchen (especially, as others have mentioned with Trader Joe's across the street) and the living space (and pullout bed) being separate from the bedroom (2 Queens). It was a great bonus to be able to use the laundry room in the basement of the hotel. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, housekeeping was always excellent. We walked everywhere we could (Memorials, White House). We also used the subway (which is a 5 min walk) to visit Harvard, Arlington and for when the weather turned cold and icy. There are many restaurants and cafes close by and we ate at several on M Street. We really enjoyed dinner at the Indian Restaurant very close to the hotel. Out of the many hotels we stayed in over our five week visit to the US, Avenue Suites was one of our favourites.

Pros: Staff and management commitment to guest experience Location Size of rooms Sleeping capacity of rooms Size of beds (queens) Kitchenette.

Cons: Would have liked to find room service or a cafe to grab a late night meal. There is a bar on the premises. Rollaway bed was unmade w no linens.

Location: You have to get a guide book. It is Washington, DC & options are endless. Bikes available to rent across street, Whole Foods & Trader Joe's nearby.

Our oldest is a student at GWU and we live nearby in MD so are often in the area or hosting guests visiting DC. As often as we have stayed in DC, we had not encountered Avenue Suites until a recent special was offered via Expedia. We are a family of 6 w/ 4 teens. The location is great-walking distance to great areas of DC from Georgetown to Dupont Circle, Foggy Bottom & GWU, the IMF & World Bank, The White House, Kennedy Center, etc. Located right on Pennsylvania Avenue, you just walk out the door & are on your way. It is easy to hail a cab, bike rentals are available across the street, there is a metro station nearby & buses run regularly. Valet parking is available to guests. It is pricey ($42/night) but in DC, most parking is expensive and is less expensive than a parking ticket! Appreciated being allowed to go in & out in the same day without being charged again. The hotel staff were delightful-cheerful, welcoming, professional and seeming truly committed to ensuring guests have a pleasant stay. We booked a deluxe suite and were thrilled to find it was truly a suite in that it had a separate bedroom w two queen beds and a tv, a living room w full sized sleep sofa, a desk AND an oversized cafe table & chairs, a separate mini kitchen w refrigerator, sink, microwave, coffee pot, stove, toaster, cooking utensils, dishes & glasses. Rooms were appointed in a combination of modern & aged amenities & fixtures. While not gold gilded, we rate it a 5 on overall value.

Great hotel. I have been three times on 2013 in this hotel, and really I am very happy. Beginning from the staft, absolutely professional and very kind. Seck in the reception desk, it is an added value of the hotel. My special regards for him for his excelent work, always with an smile and helping in whatever you need. The location of the hotel is great, near to George Town and the National Mall in a few minutes by walk. In front of the hotel you have a supermarket and others 5 minutes walk. The room is very comfortable ans spacious with kitchen and crockeries, all that you need to be at home.
They offer free wifi so it was great for my job. Really, I am very greatful with this hotel. I am looking forward to stay there once again in two months. After an exhausting workday, this hotel offer you the comfort as you would be in your own house.

We stayed at Avenue Suites twice in December while my mother was in the hospital for an extended period of time in Washington DC. We decided that since my mom was in DC (in the hospital) that we would spend Christmas in Washington. We were a large group, nine of us for a total of 4 rooms. Two of the rooms they gave us were at the end of the hall in an area that could be locked off and the other two were adjoining rooms next door. It was perfect. We ordered Christmas dinner from Whole Foods (two blocks away) and cooked it in the suite kitchen! The hotel staff was beyond friendly and extremely helpful in making our stay as pleasant as possible. We were greeted every time we came in and they would inquire about our mother’s health. The Bellhop even bought my mom flowers! They also arranged for a car service for my father’s daily hospital visits.
The hotel itself is newly renovated and well decorated. The rooms are large and well laid out. The kitchen is well equipped. The hotel was very clean and I enjoyed the supplied Occitane Bath products.
The location is perfect. We walked to the memorials (25 min walk) or you can also take the metro which is two-three blocks away. Georgetown is a two minute walk just across the bridge. M Street is where we mostly shopped and dined.
So overall, the accommodations, location, cleanliness were all great but the service is what really makes this hotel exceptional!

Avenue Suites was a great solution to our "problem" of finding accommodation for friends travelling together. It can be really hard to find places that are big enough so that you're not tripping over each other and your bags, and that can accommodate three beds. Here we had HEAPS of space, and a bed each (two queens in the bedroom and a sofa bed in the living room), plus an equipped kitchen so we could eat breakfast on the cheap with supplies from the Trader Joe's across the road. The hotel also has a laundry with coin operated washers and dryers which is great when you've been travelling for a while!

Staff were excellent from first to last: nothing was too much trouble and they were very helpful and personable.

The hotel is a short walk to Georgetown in one direction, and Foggy Bottom Metro station in the other, but we found the walk to the Mall and/or the White House pretty do-able if you have the time. It's a straight line down Pennsylvania Avenue so you can't get lost! Being Australians we were constantly on the hunt for "good" coffee, and we can recommend Baked and Wired, not too far away in Georgetown for a pretty good espresso. Beware, the cakes are also excellent. The walk along the river from there round to the Lincoln Memorial is particularly nice.

In short: nice neighbourhood, spacious, clean and convenient. Would I stay there again? Without hesitation.

Room Tip: We stayed in a Deluxe one bedroom suite at the back of the hotel, which has views across the river t...

Rather, a well remodeled, pied-a-terre you rented from good friends in D.C. An easy walk from the subway station. Whole foods and Trader Joe's between the subway and your doorstep. Easily the quietest hotel I have stayed in for years! We asked for a quiet suite away from the street and that is exactly what we received. My son could hear other guests from the living room coming home late at night, but the rest of us never heard a thing from the bedroom. A great family stay.

We had a large family group of 12 persons traveling to DC together. Looked at VRBOs but this place was better located, more economical and seemed like more of a DC experience. They put us in 2 adjoining suites with a door that connected the two and made it like we were all together. We had two smallish kitchens, which were great for breakfasts, and could have worked for dinners, but we discovered the Whole Foods Store which was right on our way home from the mall every day and so easy for everyone to choose their food, with no dishes to do after. Staff very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Everyone very professional and friendly. The location is in a great neighborhood, near Georgetown, and the Circulator Bus stops just down the street so only $1 to get near the Capitol. Metro is also close. There is also a nice outside area in the back with tables and seating if the weather is nice, which it was when we were there. Trader Joe's is also practically across the street. It worked out well for our rather large family group, and I would definitely stay there again. The adjoining room feature made it perfect for us.
