This is just what you'd hope for from a moderately priced hotel. It's located just across the street from the Eisnehower Metro station (about a 5-10 minute walk given the position of the station and the length of the stop lights) and the parking is free so it was great choice for our vacation to DC. The hotel was clean, the staff efficient and friendly with bonus points for the staff in the restaurant who went out of their way to get us some "kids dine free" coupons for breakfast that the desk staff forgot to give us when we checked in. The pool and gym seemed nice, though we didn't use them. Each bed in our room came with 4 pillows and there were four set of towels in the bathroom which meant we didn't have to make an immediate call to housekeeping. I wish the beds had been queen not full size though. My only complaint is that the parking was difficult to find one evening when there was a banquet event and we had to park under the freeway and walk quite a distance with our sleepy kids. Still, I can't complain too much about free parking. We'd definitely stay here again the next time we make a quick trip to DC.
