We just returned from 4 night stay.
This was a long planned vacation to DC from NC.
This hotel was perfect for us.
We had a 1 bedroom suite looking out over Old Town.
One caution - there is a $18 daily day valet charge if you drive your car. But after reviewing all of the other options we felt this was acceptable.
Easy access to Metro station one block away. Many other hotels we considered required some form of bus ride to get to a metro station. This would have easily added 30 minutes each way.
We had a super easy ride to our tours of the Capital, Supreme Court and Library of Congress - a simple 24 minute train ride.
8 miles from Mt. Vernon. A must-see if you are going to DC area for vacation.
The hotal had the best "free" breakfast we have ever had at any hotel.
Mon-Thurs the hotel had free happy hour and buffet. They did not call the buffet dinner but it could certainly qualify if you did not wish to explore any of the excellent restaurenats in walking distance.
Walking distance to several very nice restaurants. We tried Joe Theisman's one night - one block away - and had a great meal.
There was a free trolley car ride if you wanted to go further down towards the wharf area restaurants - .5 to .8 miles away. We walked it one evening.
If you want to eat in - there was a Whole Foods one block away. We did this our last night - got take-out from Whole Foods hot bar and ate in our suite which ahd a full kitchen and dining table.
Hotel staff was very nice - helped with hints and tips. We accidentally dropped our camera in the elevator on the way to check out. Realized it 2 hours and 100 miles later. Called front desk and after describing the camera the said they had it and would send it to our home. rec'd it 2 days later. They were great.
Overall - Great location, wonderful property, very helpful staff.
