Comfortable room, and a lovely location 7 blocks from the White House. Easy public transport or taxi trip into the centre of it all. But this hotel is really sadly let down by its restaurant. The staff are arrogant, rude, and aggressive with their (many) customers, seeming to regard them as an inconvenience. The absence of a proper catering manager... More

We wisely chose this hotel based upon price and location and were not disappointed. Washington is an expensive city from the moment you arrive at Dulles International Airport and fork out an eye-watering $75 for a taxi to take you to the city centre. However, once at the hotel is was possible for us to walk to all the main... More

This hotel was a good experience for my wife and my self when we toured Washington DC for two days this summer. It was one of the best priced hotels we found within good walking distance from the Capital and other attractions. I wish it had a Continental breakfast and free parking. Parking I believe was $20 and the breakfast... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in June and the check in staff and concierge were superb. The room was clean and spacious and we'd asked for a room overlooking the train train tracks so cant complain about the noise. The restaurant team let the hotel down, we waited over 40 minutes for our meal and was told they were... More

Stayed here during the 4th of July weekend, and overall I had a good time. Check in was smooth, thanks to a early check in at no cost, and a extra friendly staff, not to mention the bowl of Werthers kept at the front desk. The elevators were slow, very slow and boy were they SMALL!!! The room was small,... More

The hotel is in a very good location, given the high price you have to pay to be closer to the monuments. Upon check in the front desk staff upgraded me to a suite. Front desk Staff, concierge and restaurant staff are very friendly both on the phone and in person. Unfortunately, the follow up is not consistent. I didn't... More

First, let me say that the name of the hotel is a bit misleading. While it might have been located central to the city of DC, it was by no means central to the attractions that one comes to DC to see. It also mentions " White House" in the title. Don't let this allow you to think that this... More

From the time I checked in to when I left the staff have been outstanding, both front office as well as housekeeping and catering. I got an instant upgrade without asking and even when there were lots of people, staff were able to multi task seamlessly. Marilyn was particularly helpful.

We stayed here for 2 nights, July 2&3, 2015. The hotel is in a nice area, but if I was going to do it again, I would have paid a little more to be closer to the museums and mall. It's not a bad walk to the White House. It was just a little too much walking back, especially after... More
