Nice hotel close to the mall

Posted Aug 29, 2016
We were able to get a comfy night's sleep and walk to and through the national mall. wheb we got back we hung out at the bar on the roof and lounged around the pool. Very nice getaway for us. :) the hotel requires your key card to get in anywhere.. Even in the elevator. Just be sure not to leave it behind ;)

Pros: clean and staff was very friendly and helpful
Cons: Wish they had a free breakfast.
Location: Close to the Air and Space museum and the metro which comes in handy when sightseeing around the city.
Nice, clean hotel with all the amenities you need. Close to Air and Space museum and a short walk to the other Smithsonian attractions. Not many places to eat around there, but there are a ton of food trucks. We ate breakfast at McDonalds which saved a lot of money.

Good location for tourists

Posted Aug 22, 2016
The hotel was clean and the rooms were fine. We were able to walk to a lot of attractions. All the museums on the mall have cafes but restaurants for dinner are a bit of a hike. The hotel breakfast buffet was good if a bit pricey and the hotel restaurant was fine.

Close to Washinton D.C.'s National Mall.

Posted Aug 22, 2016
Pros: I really enjoyed the proximately to the National Mall, the Starbucks on the ground floor, the great attitude of the staff, and the decor.
Cons: The pool is so very small, and I understand it may be due to building restrictions, but extending the open hours in summer might help with use.
Location: It's an easy walk from the hotel to the Smithsonian Museums, the National Mall, and National Gallery of Art.
The staff allowed us to check in early as we had just arrived in D.C. on an early morning flight and graciously held our bags after check out as we had a late flight returning home. Staff was exceedingly accomodating and pleasant with us.

Great hotel for DC family trip.

Posted Aug 18, 2016
Cons: The only drawback was that the in room AC unit was a little loud.
Location: The Air & Space Museum was just 2 blocks down the street & Metro stop around the corner to take you anywhere.
The hotel is close to the Air & Space Museum and a Metro stop (7th & Maryland exit from the Metro) which makes it easy to get around. The staff was friendly, the hotel was clean, secure and comfortable. The kids enjoyed the rooftop swimming pool as well.
