Our prime goal was a quad room for a early visit to the White House. Location was very good, only 5 minutes taxi ride from White House and 5 minutes walk from a cluster of restaurants a block up the road. Hotel staff from porter, reception and housekeeping were all very friendly & helpful. Only negative was that the hotel... More

The location is great - either a good 20-30 min walk to the National Mall or a 10 min cab ride on a rainy day. Others have mentioned Whole Foods nearby, whihc is convenient. I would encourage you to explore further. There is a good Ethiopian restaurant further down the road from Whole Foods at 14th and P, as well... More

Overall, the hotel itself is good with the nice location. The hotel restaurant is a rip-off. In room the print out says that kids eat free and the continental breakfast is 11 dollars each. However, the breakfast bill for 3 adults and 3 kids (1, 7 and 10 year old) ended as 90 dollars. They denied all the info sent... More

I can't say that we had a terrible stay here, but i can't say that everything was great. We arrived a little early before check in but they had a room ready so that was good. Friendly staff. Nice, clean room away from the busy street. Now to the weird part. On the second day, after sightseeing, we got back... More

The hotel was clean and very affordable. Parking was $31 per day and you self park in underground parking. The garage is not very tall and spaces are tight. The lobby is small and clean with complimentary coffee, tea, and water. I didn't use breakfast buffet because was $15.99 and walked to different restaurants. You are less than 3/4 mile... More

Nice hotel, clean and friendly staff. Walking distance from the White House and Dupont Circle. We also enjoyed the pool - fairly large rooftop pool. Will definitely stay here again when I return to DC.

My husband and I stayed here the last week of August for four nights. Upon arrival there were a few hiccups that had to be worked out, but the front desk did everything to ensure they all were.

To be fair, it was a work trip and I only stayed one night. All I did was go to the room, order room service, go to sleep, wake up, leave. Check-in was seamless. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The view out my window was quite unremarkable. It was merely the backs of other buildings. The... More
