A great choice if you want to stay on the Hill and need some extra room to spread out: All Federalist-chic style units are suites, with kitchenettes, large work desks, flat-screen TVs, and spacious closets. An eco-friendly sensibility extends from free-trade coffee in the lobby to water-saving showerheads in every bathroom. Staying here has a residential feel, though it's a short walk to several restaurants and major sights on the Mall. Amenities include a fitness room, library, and business center.

Relying upon the "Washington,DC with Kids" guide, I booked this room based upon its location to the Capitol and to a metro stop. It was $320 per night, but I was willing to pay for a suite and for convenience. When we arrived, the hotel informed us that there would be no electricity that night (no air, no alarms, no elevator). They offered us no perks or discounts for this inconvenience. When we went to the room, the "suite" was a small room with
a fold out sofa, a sink and minifrig. We immediately checked out and went to the Embassy Suites on 22nd Street, which was delightful.
