“Great place in d.c. for families”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2009

We had the 2 bed/2bath suite. Supposedly queen beds - NOT! Clearly that bed was a double. A wad on gum on the wall was the only misstep. Free breakfast was really good and fresh - hot and cold selections every day, including fresh fruit and scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, yogurts, granola, etc. VERY close to metro - around the corner and one short block down. Pot Belly around the corner and CVS within 2 blocks. Good options for food delivery - used by us and many guests. Concierge only on weekends. Mostly business guests. Very nice front desk staff. Underground parking garage. Need key to access elevators.

We got this as a Priceline hotel, but it would have been worth the full price.

The hotel is a block and a half from the Federal SOUTH metro stop (note: don't get off at Federal TRIANGLE; make sure it's SOUTH). Can be hard to find the first time, if you don't know where you're going. Front desk was no help with directions when we called.

It's a 15 minute leisurely walk to the Capitol. The area is up-and-coming -- a lot of construction; some "iffy" parts. The whole place, like most of DC, closes by 7 pm. The nearest grocery store is about a mile walk, but the hotel will pick up anything you need at no extra charge.

The hotel is beautiful. It's decorated in an American Indian theme, with sandstone-like walls and Indian artwork. There is a small business center off the lobby, with two computers and two printers. The lobby is large and has several waiting areas and a big screen tv.

Check-in was very easy, and the front desk staff was knowledgeable and friendly (except when calling for directions, as noted above). There is a concierge available on Fri, Sat, Sun. The kiosks in the lobby purporting to tell about area information are, for the most part, not helpful. They only contain information on PAID advertisers, rather than actual tourist info. Use the business center computer instead.

There is a daily hot breakfast; more than the usual hotel freebie. And Mon/Tues/Wed are "socials" where dinner is served free of charge. The food was pretty good, especially for the price ;-) and the service staff was excellent.

The rooms are all suites, with a double bed and a fold out couch. There's plenty of room if you need to pack in more than 2 or 3 people. The kitchen is large and has everything you need to make yourself at home. The bathrooms are not large, but they contain a separate sink area with a large mirror. Furnishings were all new, and beautifully decorated. Everything was spotless.

The fitness center was large and well-appointed. The pool and jacuzzi are chlorine-free, using a mineral system instead. This felt a lot better on the skin.

We loved this hotel for many reasons, but the one that stands out the most is the service. Everyone was SO nice and friendly, and we really felt at home.

I would definitely make this a first choice hotel when staying in Washington DC.

This hotel met or exceeded all my expectations. It was clean, the staff were helpful and friendly, the pool/fitness are were beyond adequate, the internet connection worked perfectly, the beds were very comfortable, it was very close to the Metro. The very best part of the stay was the hot breakfast and the 3 evening dinner buffets. Food can be very expensive in DC and having delicious meals included in your room price is a real service in today's economy!

Great stay over school vacation week for three days two of which we were given room upgrades due to sleeping arrangement requirements. Staff very polite and helpful. Great varied, plentiful breakfasts. Short walk to Air and Space, Cap. Hill, and Museum of Native Americans. Not so much to Monument/ White House area. Very short walk to Metro Stop. Pool very bright and clean, great end of day activity for kids/teens. Shop in lobby sells everything - tums, tourist trinkets, wine/beer. Concierge very helpful, knows of great take outs which is a help on weekends when the evening dinner is not served.
Though near the train line, we barely noticed it in two different locations in the hotel. Parking- on weekends, easy on streets, the garage right next door offers $10 per work day - in by 7 out by 6 but you need to work carefully with them about locating your vehicle.
Suites are large by city standards. Great spot to base a first tour of DC.

I thought this hotel was great! The location was walking distance to the Capitol and the Mall area. Rooms were very clean. The staff was very freindly from the hotel lobby to housekeeping. The free breakfast in the morning was wonderful, there were many choice from Waffles, Eggs, Ceral, Bagels, etc... The only negative thing about this hotel is that there is a $30.00 a night fee to park your car, but I think this is the going rate for Washington and not much you can do about that. The hotel was in a very safe area. There is a sandwich shop and a starbucks 1 block away. We ask the front desk for Chinese delivery information and they gave us 3 places that would deliver to the hotel from Chinatown.

Hotel itself is ok, clean, but nothing too special. The rooms are a great deal for the price. Big, spacious rooms with a kitchen. The staff, however, was not very efficient. The majority of the workers at the front desk were not very friendly and the 2 that were friendly gave us the wrong information. My baby had an accident one night and the sheets were not changed the next day. It's a safe hotel for families because you have to put your key in to use the elevator and it's in a remote location. It's a close walk to the mall and capitol hill, but finding a nearby restaurant is impossible. There is absolutely nothing within close walking distance. Free breakfast buffet, which is nice. Internet says complimentary coffee in the lobby, but they don't say it's only during breakfast hours. Cookies at the front desk are always a plus. Overall it was ok

Stayed here with my 2 sons and my sister came along too. The room was very nice and clean though the walls are a bit thin. Our view was of the building under construction next door but a housekeeper let my son see a room on the 13th floor with a view of the Capitol and I think it was the highlight of his trip. It is an easy walk to the Botanical Gardens and the American Indian Museum and also the Capitol. The Air & Space Museum is a few blocks too but the Natural History and American History Museums are on the other side of the Mall and can be quite a walk back to the hotel after walking through them all day. Metro is very close by so just take a short ride to get some good food as there is nothing close by at all. Overall it was a great stay .
