The location of the hotel makes it perfect for strolls down the National Mall, visiting all of the museums, taking in a hockey game or gazing at the White House and Washington Monument from the rooftoop terrace. You can walk everwhere from here. We also caught the Metro for a quick trip to Alexandria -- the metro station is just... More

Location, location, location. Great staff that went out of way to help. They say hotel loud but we stayed Friday to Monday and while not tame not overly partied. The community spaces such as restrooms very clean. POV very nice, while expensive the view is killer. J & G steakhouse very nice and great breakfast.

First : $50 for the night to park.no mention of such an exorbitant cost on their website. Still in shock I got to my little room-no view. Called the concierge for help with something: she never got back to me. I had to go back down to the front desk to get the help. The website says free wi-fi:: for... More

I stayed here at the end of the summer with the kids. Not your typical choice of hotel with kids but it was fun. The location is fabulous. we were able to walk everywhere. The only downside was when we tried to go to the rooftop terrace. They close it off toto kids under 18 after 5. We showed up... More

I was getting concerned reviewing everyone's comments on how loud and "edgy" this hotel was. I traveled with my 13yo daughter for a 4 day trip of museums, etc. We stayed over the weekend on the 6th floor. It was not loud AT ALL on this floor. The lobby was busy on the weekend evening but it wasn't crazy. I... More
