This is a lovely hotel, and represents excellent value given its location at the heart of Washington. Yes, it's not super-duper up-to-date, but the rooms have character and are reasonably equipped. It was the first hotel in the USA that we've stayed in, so we were unfamiliar with using a coffee machine (rather than a kettle) to heat water for... More

We stayed here in March 2015 for a week. My family of 4 was quite happy in a deluxe room, which was two room with a total of 3 beds. This is the perfect place to stay if you plan on being out most of the day. It was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the service was excellent. The... More

This hotel is located just one block from the White House. It is a 100 year old hotel so is a little tired but is perfectly clean and is very popular with american visitors. The breakfast room serves a lovely breakfast, and the diner is ideal for evening drinks.

While we were there the hotel celebrated its 100th birthday and you couldn't half tell it was that old. The elevators are a bit dodgy while the rooms are very small and pokey for a family of 4. The mattress was terrible and needed replacing, the hot water takes 15 minutes to reach the higher floors, there is not security... More

Unless you're on a tight budget then don't stay here. If you are and don't mind roughing it then the hotel is great as it is in a great location. The room was small, dated and dirty. The layout of the bathroom was awkward and there was no water pressure. I also saw a small rodent run across the carpet... More

This hotel is very central and at the checkin you, get a map and a information with shops and restaurants nearby. But that's all. Our room was next to the street and in the night, it was very loud. Also the walls are very thin, so you could listen the neighbours speeking. The plug socket and the television speaker were... More

But considering the convenient location, in downtown Washington DC, near the mall, it is the best you can get for the price. Don't expect any luxury. The room is clean, the full size bed is cozy for two. No shampoos and no bottle water.

This is indeed a find! an affordable boutique hotel with rich history right in the heart of DC. Great location. Everything is walking distance from the White House, to Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial. In the morning, you can have a great walk along the tidal basin. Hotel staff is courteous. Decent room. Clean toilet. Only complain though is... More

The hotel is conveniently located. you can literally walk to almost everything. The folks at the desk were very helpful and nice. It was reasonable and did have food and drink options near the hotel. That being said it is a very old hotel. The rooms are small and it does need some updating. Our room was clean and the... More

Even though this hotel and it's rooms remind me of family vacations in the 50's, I can't complain. It's cleaner than many high priced hotels I've stayed at and you can't find a better location close to this price. It's walking distance to many attractions and 2 metro stations if you want to go farther. The food and selection in... More
