We loved this place! Close to everything and right next to a CVS . Everyone traveling with kids knows how important a 24 hour CVS can be. Rooms were big and clean. Also kitchen was perfect ! Free breakfast rocked ! You must try the fresh waffles .

Great breakfast. Buffet that changes daily. Ranges from fruit to gravy and everything in between. Staff was pleasant. Good suggestions for dinner. Housekeeping was GREAT, room was clean and coffee, shampoo etc was replaced daily. Loved having the fridge to store drinks. Did not use fitness room or parking The first day we walked to and from the Lincoln Memorial... More

Stayed here for a wedding, 2 nights. The complaints are all with the room - everything else was great, especially for the price. The room smelled extremely musty, perhaps even as if it was a smoking room, though I doubt that's the case. It was dark - the only window was about 10-15 ft from another building, so needed more...

Thank you for your feedback! I apologize that your guest room wasn't more to your liking. Unfortunately, all of our rooms have queen sized beds; there are no king beds in the entire hotel so I apologize if that's what your confirmation noted. I am glad to hear however, that our staff was helpful and friendly and that the location... More

This place was friendly as could be. The guest services checked me in quickly and provided me with area info. Negatives....valet parking only and it's $33 plus parking tax per night, so $38 a day to park. Glad I was on business. It is walking distance to so many places to eat its hard to choose.

Thank you for your review! You are correct that there are many options for dining within walking distance to the hotel, and we are very lucky in that respect. I'm glad the Front Desk suggested one that you enjoyed, in the very popular "14th Street Corridor", which is the emerging area for restaurants in downtown DC. We hope you choose... More

We stayed at the hotel for two nights and were very happy. The room was HUGE and very clean. Also, the location is a big plus.

Thank you for your review! We are lucky that our hotel is situated so close to everything a leisure traveler would want to see in DC.

We needed a hotel room large enough for our family of 6 that was close to the White House for our early morning tour. This hotel proved perfect! It is a doable walk, meaning you will get a bit of exercise on your way to the White House, which is a good thing. We walked the few blocks to the... More

We stayed at this hotel over the weekend & were very pleased. We had a 8:30am White House tour scheduled so we needed a location that was nearby, as we would need to go back to the hotel before we started the rest of our day. The clerk that answered the phone when we initially called said that it was... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful, the rooms were big, clean and well maintained and it is very conveniently located for any activity. Especially nice were the full kitchen and the bathroom with a shower that can knock you down with the water pressure. The breakfast could easily rival that of any restaurant in the area.
