I got a great rate for a family trip. The facility was great but the room configuration did not fit our needs. Operations Manager Tori spent several hours finding suitable alternative arrangements for us in the DC area on a busy holiday weekend. She was remarkable! Thanks!

The room was spacious, but then it was set up for a long term stay with a functional kitchen with cook top, full refrigerator and dishwasher and microwave.
