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

The property itself is easy to get to and well-staffed. We were checked in very quickly and the car was taken by the valet with no issues. The room we were put into on the 11th floor was the problem. I understand it's an oddly shaped building with rooms that have to be carved out of the wedge shape. Ours... More

Stayed here on a weekend in September 2013. Really liked the classic interior design of the hotel. The furniture is really new and the rooms are clean and spacious. Breakfast and dinner was very good (but I don't think dinner is served every day though). The location is extremely convenient. There is a CVS located in the same building as... More

This hotel is in a great location. Close to a Metro stop and within walking distance to the White House and mall (we walk a lot). Wifi was free and strong. We were able to stream a TV show while there. The free breakfast is great, but we didn't try the dinner. They are currently doing some renovations, but we... More

The staff and our room was great. Breakfast was good and the location was fine. The only problem was DC traffic. It was noisy at times, but not too bad. It was one of the only hotels in DC with a rollaway bed.
