We had a great and comfortable stay here. Rooms are a novel concept with two queen beds and a sofa bed separated by a screen, which was perfect for two adults, two small children and a grandma. There is a separate restroom with a mirror and a small sink, then there is the separate bathroom with a big sink, mirror and shower. This is perfect if you are staying with family members that you are comfortable with sleeping in the same room, but you don't (want to) know on a "I know you nude" basis. And it saves money for a separate room.
Our room was also spotless clean and cleaned thoroughly every day.
It is about a mile away from the Eisenhower Avenue station on the DC subway yellow line. The hotel has a shuttle bus but we didn't use it. We saw many people at the hotel waiting for it though.
Instead we either parked in a garage (since this was cheaper than paying for 4 people for the subway), or we drove 2 miles to the Van Dorn Street station on the blue line (turn left on Eisenhower Avenue coming from the hotel, you cannot miss it), where you can park for free on weekends and holidays.
Service was great in the hotel, requests for extra blankets and extra towels were quickly resolved. Breakfast is also nice, plenty of food to go around, just the seating area is small so when the hotel is full (as was when we were there) it gets crowded very fast.
All in all a good stay. Well recommended.
