The hotel was stunning and pure luxury with taxis on hand at any time to take you where you needed to go. We were a little further out for all the main attraction such as Capitol Hill, The White House etc. but it took 20 mins at 8.30 in a morning so it wasn't too bad. We would get a taxi so we could join the hop on hop off bus at Union station, which we have a 2 day pass for. This is the best and easiest way to get around the city if you only have a few days. Highly recommend visiting the Capitol building and taking the tour! Also the air and space museum is well worth a visit! Sadly, we were out of season for the zoo, but this would have been a bonus. We would unwind after a busy day at the hotel pool which was also a great feature.
