Expected an average, old, but clean hotel. Half the price of the others in the area. Had poor reviews relating to the noisy train, dated decor, etc. Walked in to a newly renovated lobby, with staff happy to see us and efficiently handled our check in. Even more surprised to walk through what looked like a newly renovated corridor to... More

When I arrived I was a little put off by the decor in the lobby but this was more than made up for by the fantastic staff - at the check in desk, in the restaurant, the bellboy, the cleaners, everyone was exceptional. The bed was comfortable and the pillows were very good. The restaurant not pleasant to look at... More

Thank you for staying with us during your visit to Washington, DC. It sounds as if our staff exceeded your expectations. I'm glad that happened and that you enjoyed your soup in our restaurant. We have a cook that makes homemade soup daily and I personally think it is some of the best tasting soup I have ever eaten. I... More

Hotel was average as we expected for the rate paid, but you can't beat the location. We could walk to the Mall and all the sites we wanted to see. Read the reviews on here and asked for a room away from the railway line, which we got. Room was average, but clean and comfortable. Traveled in March 2013

Thank you for choosing our hotel for your business trip here in the States. I'm glad you received the room you requested, away from the trains. Some guests are lighter sleepers than others. It doesn't sound as if you had one of our newly renovated guest rooms. We just completed renovating all of our guest rooms and they are beautiful,... More

This is clearly not a five star hotel but has two things going for it that make it a 4 star rating ... Location and price. This hotel has been plagued lately with many poor reviews because of renovation issues. Well hotels get old and need renovations so I don't understand people complaining about it especially if you KNOW about... More

Thank you for staying with us and your very detailed review. I really appreciate you mentioning the renovation...renovating and operating a hotel is a challenge. We try and do the best we can, but things do indeed happen. However, the guestroom renovation is complete and the finished product (after gutting the rooms) is beautiful. All of our rooms now have...

Selected this hotel for a long weekend to see the sites. Parked in the garage below hotel, yes there is a fee but took advantage of a parking/room package offered which saved some money. The rooms are newly renovated top to bottom with a nice design. Offers soft & firm pillows on beds, nice to have a choice. I did... More

Absolutely no sound insulation in construction Could easily hear next room conversations (spoken at normal level) and television from room across corridor. Not to mention the train station across the street , the adjacent toilet noises, etc... Changed room . Still the same problems. Stay away if you intend to get any sleep at all

Our room was not clean upon arrival at 10pm with small children. It took almost 2 hours for it to be cleaned. Ceiling above leaked in the bathroom. Construction work woke us at 7am. I stayed 2 years ago and it was great. This time not at all. Staff was not helpful. Very disappointed.

Seven of us were taken care of like family. Breakfast room was great meeting place each morning. Buffet or order friendly, quick and very good food. Get coffee from the Starbucks in the corner of the Hotel (hotel coffee is passable at best). Rooms were spacious and beds were extremely comfortable. Ages 12 - 73 were all satisfied. We walked...

This was a perfect location for our trip. We were in Washington to run the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler. This hotel was close to the start and we were able to walk over. The hotel is also very close to the L'Enfant Metro stop. For us this worked well, we parked our car in New Carrollton and took the Metro... More

My daughtesr and I stayed here for two nights in mid-February on a trip to visit friends and the museums.
