Dear aar1211, Thanks for the review! I'm happy that our cozy, clean, and minimal rooms were perfect for our adventure in DC! I'm glad that our location was convenient for the monuments and museums and that other attractions were an easy ride away. We hope to have you back at the Hive soon for some more fun! Thanks, Bryna
