This hotel offers big suites with sinks, refrigerators, microwaves, and 2 32-inch flat-screen TVs; a really solid free breakfast buffet; a small but recently renovated pool; and a fun atrium lobby with palm trees, waterfalls, glass elevators, and a koi pond where kids can feed the fish. The on-site Italian restaurant offers a lunch buffet and a kids' menu with fettuccine, pizza, chicken fingers, and the like. And the staff is tolerant of (and used to!) rambunctious kids running around the lobby. The rooms aren't pristine, and it's not within easy walking distance of D.C.'s prime tourist spots, but otherwise this is an excellent family choice.
