We stayed here sharing a room as a family of four with two teenage sons. The rooms was adequate, if on thew small side with two slightly shrunk queen-size beds. Traveling into D.C. is easy from a near-by (200 meters) Metro station; note however that using the Metro in D.C. is quite expensive. The hotel is ok, nothing to write home about (including the mediocre breakfast buffet). Yes, there is a pool -- but it's divided into a swimming and a non-swimming part so lane-swimmers, don't get your hopes up! On the positive side, there are a couple of restaurants in the Plaza just across the street -- with Delia's grill and pizza place (see www.deliasbrickovenpizza.com) particularly recommended.
