"two night stay with an Academy group."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Very accommodating staff and terrific location. The views of the U.S. Capitol were amazing. I wish we could have stayed here when the pool was open. Mr. Suzuki, Director of International Tour and Travel Sales, was a delight to work with and provided supreme customer service. Traveling with a group of 100 it was very convenient to have on site bus parking, which saves precious time in the District. I would definitely stay at this property again.
