Pay for what you get. Wife and I checked in at 11:45pm and the night manager was no where to be found for about 10 minutes. When he did finally appear (he'd been getting someone's bags out of storage) he checked us in and kindly upgraded us (it was our anniversary) to a suite. But the room had 2 single... More

We stayed overnight with our family of five (3 kids and 2 adults). Check in was simple. Parking had a fee and was adequate but very tight facilities. The room was pretty small for us and we ended up placing a whole bunch of pillow and getting one of our kids to sleep on the floor between the two beds... More

Bad way to start our vacation. All we wanted was to have my family together in a joint room. Yes they told me connecting rooms aren't guaranteed but when I called multiple times days before my check in, I was reassured my request was not going to be a problem. What a relief but when the day of ,I called... More

Stayed here for 4 nights and good location and value for money. One nice surprise was the free laundry you only need to supply washing liquid, machines and dryers free to use. Only takes about 10-15 to walk into main downtown area.

This hotel is in a residential Neighborhood about a mile North of the White House. It is 2 blocks from a very nice Whole Foods Store. It is less than a mile from two Metro stations. I stayed here and walked to Convention Center, National Mall (Smithsonian, Capitol), Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials. Room was in very good condition, though... More

I stayed this hotel in June 17, 2014 for one night. The location of the hotel are very good. The receptionists were very friendly and fast. My room was nice, clean and face to the front which had a good view. There was a taxi stand in front of the hotel, which many taxis were queuing there. There was a... More

Loved staying at this hotel and the only major disappointment is that we couldn't stay longer than one night! Wifi worked perfectly and quickly with no interruption which was great as I had to use it for work. The beds were comfortable, great pillows, and the TV worked well although with not so great picture quality. The view was great,... More

There is no huge "wow" factor here but the location is great, a walk to The White House and Monuments which our 4 year old could handle (with a little motivation). The hotel is clean, beds are comfortable but pillows are not - we brought our own thankfully. The coffee and tea available in the lobby 24/7 is a great... More
