As soon as I arrived, I was greeted by a tall friendly desk clerk who never failed to greet me warmly as I came and went. I was stunned by the spaciousness and utter comfort of my room which was really a large studio apartment. I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights, and was so pleased with every little... More

Great food, excellent service and comfortable beds with helpful and friendly staff. Easy walk to transport, shops, restaurants and university/hospital if required. I loved the yellow house on the corner from the underground!

I have reserved this place in a hurry for 3 a nights stay. Did not expect much since it wasn't the right location I was looking for. But everything from the checking in was really good. Location is perfect, 2 blocks from metro station blue line and great walking distance to main areas. With a very professional and eager staff... More

We spent three nights here while visting our daughter who is studying at George Washington University. The location is perfect for GWU access, walk to transport, shops and the monuments on the Mall as well as the White House and surrounds. And although very central, a very quiet and secluded location as it is set back from a quiet street.... More

I would repeat verbatim the comments made by JSJANJ! - having stayed here a number of times we also find the staff super friendly and helpful, the hotel is in a great location- lovely neighborhood and close to metro. A great value for a small, pretty hotel.

We have stayed at this hotel numerous times during our trips to Washington, DC. The staff is extremely helpful and accommodating always greeting us by name. We have never been disappointed in any aspect of our stay. Being located in the Foggy Bottom makes it even more perfect.

The are of the hotel is a bit of a walk from the main sites, but is very old and beautiful. The hotel itself is all you can ask for (no luxury, but a good level). The hotel also has very good attitude towards pets. My little dog had very good time also ;)
