The hotel is out of the way. The rooms are well maintained though small. Staff was pleasant. The restaurants were okay but I was outraged when we received our bill for breakfast. The charge for A cup of coffee was $8.00 EACH!! It added $16 to our bill??!! So to be fair I checked coffee prices at other local luxury... More

I was in town for business recently and stayed here and it was an excellent hotel. My room was really nice with a beautiful Bathroom. They keep the rooms air conditioned at around 65 degrees and that was a little cold but I was able to quickly change that by adjusting the thermostat. Concierge was excellent and one night we...

Pros: large bathroom, friendly door staff, large well-appointed gym, morning coffee in the lobby, water and towels waiting at the front door after a morning run, Cons: The club was closed for renovations, concierge wasn't helpful, the room looked dated, location wasn't near restaurants or shopping

This was a disappointing stay,my family and I were in DC for 5 nights. I first have to say the bellman and valet were always courteous and helpful. The Muse restaurant staff always greeted us with a warm smile and wonderful service. I hate to report bad service, but you can stay at much better places in DC. I have... More

High points This hotel has an amazing lobby bar where you can enjoy drinks and food in great seating areas. Nice piano bar in the evenings. Fresh flowers are abundant and exquisite. Low points Pricey, and at these price points expect impeccable service and it is sometimes spotty. Also hope for the return of the chocolate martini!

This hotel is very accomodating for business and pleasure. The meeting rooms and catering service were perfect for the conference I attended. Driving straight to the hotel the first time was a bit tricky, but that's expected in downtown DC. I would recommend looking at a map and figuring it out the old fashioned way rather than having GPS talk... More

We did a "stay-cation" in our hometown of DC for a weekend and it was wonderful! The top tier restaurant in the hotel - Cityzen is NOT to be missed - even if not staying at the hotel. The lobby bar is fun! The hotel is beautifully appointed and the rooms are large and charming. They also have great views.

Beautiful hotel that treats all guests like royalty. I was given a free upgrade to a room with a view by calling the day of my check-in. They did not have to do that, but it went above and beyond, allowing my stay to be way better than expected. My only complaint was due to the young teenage girls hanging... More
