I stayed in this hotel for three nights in November. The location was great - we were only a short walk from the metro but equally we were able to walk into the centre of town with ease. His made it easy to get around and see all of the attractions. The hotel did feel a bit dated but this... More

This "Old" hotel is located on South side of National Mall (15mins. walking distance) with free parking for guest ($7 for others). No breakfast and restaurant was closed out. Swimming pool was closed when we visited on April. 2 star hotel with reasonable price. Okay to stay with limit expense. Beside of the river harbor, there are some river cruise... More

I was very disappointed in our room.No fridge or microwave.Stains all over the carpet.Rooms were nasty looking and beds are hard.Would never stay here again.The only good thing that I can say is that there was free parking.

This hotel's location is pretty good, being right by the Potomac, but it's in an area where many things are being redone, and many buildings (including this one) are going to be torn down soon. The employee I met was fairly new, and wasn't very informative about what to do in D.C. The rooms are pretty spacious, and I was... More

Location is great - only 1 mile from Tidal Basin; price was reasonable; parking was free for guests. On the downside, everything inside the hotel was very outdated, the front desk clerk had a hard time grasping what was going on - kept confusing my name with my friend's, couldn't read my name on his guest list even though I...

We did not stay in a river view room, so what we got was a dated, worn room with a tiny1980's version television. There are virtually no amenities, though wifi was functional. The hotel is on the verge of being razed to clear the way for a modern wharf so the restaurant was closed and service was virtually nonexistent. Having... More

This place is reasonably priced and the location is great but do not expect luxury. Days Inn or lower in quality. The bed is like a rock along with the horrible pancake hard pillows. I had to go out a buy a pillow to be able to sleep. The bedspread is ancient and worn, the bedskirt is stained and matches... More
