This is located close to White House and is a cool place - not great not bad. Being a residence inn, expectations of a full-fledged hotels are not up to that mark. The lobby is small and no lounge etc on the ground floor. But the location is really nice, staff is well-behaved. I stayed here for a week's time... More

We went to the Kennedy Center on New Year's Eve and didn't want to drive back to family's home late at night. This was a perfect place to stay. The rooms are a nice size.

Fortunately we got a free upgrade. We booked a room with two queen beds and got a suite and a room with a connecting door. The room was quite, clean and everything worked.

This hotel was a little outdated and it showed. Wallpaper starting to come down on the walls. Bad lighting especially in the bathroom. Despite it's aging the staff was very nice and very helpful. A little noise but that's excepted in a downtown area.
