We have stayed at this property in the past and again this week…what a disappointment this time. The wi-fi does not work at all with any Apple products! The rooms are in need of major updates. We had to switch rooms due to a broken tv and broken air conditioning! The staff in the breakfast were working so hard to... More

Spacious clean and comfortable rooms. Really great location - walked everywhere or took the metro also close. There is a CVS almost attached to the hotel!!! And there are wonderful restaurants around. All of them pricy but it's DC downtown, so kind of expected.

I found the staff to be demeaning, lack enthusiasm and as other posters have stated, there is a service issue at this facility. I ended up leaving the facility an having them cancel the room. They never put the Marriott Rewards points back into my account after I made sure and got confirmation they would.

Absolutely fantastic stay. Our suite was spacious, comfortable and clean. The staff was absolutely wonderful and professional. We were travelling with 3 tween girls and the staff couldn't have been nicer to both us and them. The hotel looks like it was either a big hotel in the past or a big old apartment building... very charming old school decor,... More

This hotel was in a good location for sightseeing. The rooms are very large and comfortable. My family of 4 had two double beds plus a sleeper sofa. The breakfast was good. The best thing about this place was the staff. They were overly friendly and willing to help with anything. We left our car there after checking out and... More

Almost everything about this hotel is 'Excellent'. Manager & staff extremely friendly AND helpful. We were graciously given an early check-in on our arrival day and they held our bags for us after check-out so we could squeeze in one more sight. BEST gratis Hotel breakfast in my experience; wide and plentiful selections of breakfast foods and they never ran... More

This hotel is close to the metro and within walking distance to many attractions. The free breakfast, wifi, and evening foood M-W make it a good choice when traveling with families. The service personnel were very helpful and friendly.

I have stayed at this hotel about 5 times in the past 2 years. I rate this the best hotel due to: a) the location, it is a five block walk from McPherson Square metro station. The bonus is there is two Starbucks between the hotel and the metro so you can have a Starbucks walking to the metro b)... More

This was my second trip to the hotel, and from the moment I walked in until I left, I was impressed with every staff member. They took wonderful care of my car, very important to me. The "free breakfast" is plentiful, fresh and with lots of variety -- from eggs to meats to cereals and muffins. The evening "snack" is... More

Approximately 1/2 mile from the Convention Center, I found a great deal to stay here which included parking. Nice daily breakfast. Rooms are good sized, beds are comfortable, and the rooms include a kitchen, which is nice if you don't want to eat out every day. Metro is 2 blocks away, and many other popular destinations are within reasonable walking... More
