Laundry facilities on 5th and 8th floor which is great if you are on a long holiday. We were mid way on a three week US trip so appreciated it. Compljnentary breakfast and WIFI. One morning breakfast was very busy and it... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for a weekend trip, and we were so impressed by the staff here. Everyone we encountered went out of their way to help us and make sure we had everything we needed.

My family visited DC at the end of last month. We wanted our son to experience the museums, etc. My husband picked this hotel because he's a Marriott member. We read that the hotel was undergoing a remodel. The construction noise wasn't a problem and I will say the hotel is in a nice location. It was within walking distance... More

This is a great hotel for a family. The rooms are large, they have a nice kitchen and it is walking distance to White House, museums, and other attractions. There is a CVS right next door and restaurants all around. There is a park nearby and retailers such as Ross and TJ Maxx only a few blocks away. The hotel... More

Rooms are spacious and with fully equipped kitchens. Friendly, effective unobtrusive staff. Few defects. Street-level noise is reasonable. Nice complementary dinner snack. But worn spring mattresses make for a poor sleeping experience. The old air-conditioning system is very noisy. While there are 4 elevators. their service is slow at best. The sofa beds were very soft. There is no place... More

Thank you for your review! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed having a full kitchen available in your room. This works well for our long term stay guests and those wanting to cook their own meals. I apologize for the use of plastic silverware and plates during breakfast. This is only temporary while our kitchen is under construction,... More

The rooms here are large, and the hotel is a 5 minute walk from the White House and other DC attractions. The room carpets and other furnishings look a little tired and worn. Breakfast was decent, but no bacon. There are no plugs on the bed side tables.

We were here for a family trip to DC to see the sights. Have stayed in other hotels and find them small as usual for a City. However, this was much to our surprise so spacious! We booked a room with two queens as we have three kids with us (14, 11, and 7). My kids don't like to share... More

A great hotel, with all the amenities you need, including a great breakfast. We only had a short two nights in Washington (wish we had more!), and this hotel was a great choice for the price. We had a standard room, with twin beds, that were very, very comfortable. The room was extremely spacious, and included a kitchen with cooking... More
