I’ve said it before, it’s easy to post beautifully staged photos of hotel rooms. You can make any room look perfect with the right angles, lighting, and nothing actually out on the counters. I’m not a fan of those types of posts. I want to see what a room (or stateroom) REALLY looks like after it’s been used by a family of four.
We were invited to spend a weekend at the Modus Avenue Suites, located in Washington DC. All four of us, plus the dog. And we put the room to the test. If giving a hotel room a thorough shakedown was a career, we’d be considered experts. Here’s what our room looked like on the morning of check-out:
So did it stand up to our family? It most certainly did. The full kitchen and dining area were a huge lifesaver after a day of sightseeing. We had plenty of room for the kids to be separated when needed (isn’t it always needed?) The bathtub, while a bit shallow for my liking, was comfortable enough for my nightly bubble bath. The dog felt completely at ease and had room to stretch out and sleep wherever she wanted.
Would we stay here again? Yes. In a heartbeat. The main art in the lobby is a photo of Sydney Poitier and Charlton Heston at the Lincoln Memorial. Elizabeth Taylor’s photo was in our room. Richard Gere and Ingrid Bergman’s photos hung by the elevator. That alone makes me want to stay there again. Add in incredible service, fantastic rooms, and the perfect location and it’s a guaranteed repeat location for our family.
I’ll have more details on the Georgetown area and why we love staying in the District on the She’s On the Go site soon (I’ll update this post with the link once the post is live.)
Thanks again to Modus for hosting us for two nights at the Modus Avenue Suites in Washington, DC.
