Korman Communities (KC) is outstanding. The rooms are an excellent size (910 square foot for my 1 bed suite) and are well set out. The bed is divine. There is a great shower and the bath is deep enough for your toddler (if you have one) to swim in! They were extremely accomodating for children. The main living area is spacious and very well equipped. There are two Sony Wega TVs (both with their own satellite - with free HBOs), Sony Hi fi and DVD player, phone with free local calls and without hotel like charges for long distance (!), (fast and reliable) high speed internet and a great well stocked open plan kitchen (oven, microwave, dishwasher). There is also a utility cupboard with your own Bosch Washer and separate tumble drier). As you will see from my photos the rooms are anything but grimy! The rooms and the entire complex is spotless, and the weekly servicing is very good.
The staff were extremely friendly. The front desk is staffed round the clock and they are very helpful. When I couldn't set up the internet, they sent an engineer straight away who set up both my Mac and PC for internet. There is a free breakfast weekday mornings and free afternoon tea on weekday afternoons all served in a pleasant room next to the business centre. There is 24/7 free Starbucks coffee and Tazo tea.... if your in too much of a rush to grab breakfast, the doorman has his own supply of coffee and tea to give you on your way out! If you don't have your own PC there are 3 PCs and a printer/fax in the business centre for your use, as well as a boardroom for any meetings. The location, as you can see from the map is great (1 block from the Whitehouse) and it is a very short walk from 2 metro stations (Faragut North and Faragut West) which is handy as it covers 3 lines. There are a multitude of good restaurants, bars and shopping in the area.
Overall our stay was outstanding. I checked several of the alternative similar DC appartments and suite hotels that come highly recommended, and I can promise you - they don't even come close. As for price..... a genuine bargain. We stayed here for 3 weeks and at the leading Tripadvisor DC hotel (the Sofitel). Whilst the Sofitel was great, I would have no hesitation in coming back the KC over the Sofitel for a short or long stay in DC. It's a great alternative to a luxury hotel. 10/10
