My husband and I stayed at the AKA White House while he was in DC for business for a week. It was a perfect location for him to get to Capitol Hill and nearby locations. Meanwhile, I had access to two Metro stations (Farragut West for the orange/blue lines or Farragut North for the red line) within one to three blocks. The kitchen came equipped with far more dishes and pans than we needed for our stay, so someone on a more extended stay would be able to cook complete meals if they wanted. Meanwhile, we used the kitchen for breakfasts and some lunches, and could easily pick up dinner items to reheat at the Whole Foods store that was a Metro stop away. Good restaurants nearby, too.
We had a one-bedroom suite, and it was extremely spacious. The extra half-bath was handy. Families would be very comfortable staying here, as there's plenty of room to spread out and read, watch TV, or use a computer. The wireless connection never gave us a problem.
The only drawback during our stay was that remodeling of the fitness center had just started. I believe it was scheduled to last for some time.
Our room was also close to the elevator, and we could occasionally hear it beeping as it passed nearby floors. But this was a minor irritant compared with the location, cleanliness, size, and well-equipped kitchen.
