Stayed overnight for a weekend trip. Location is very good, just a few minutes walk to the Smithsonian Museums and The Capitol, few minutes drive to Lincoln memorial and other landmarks/attractions. The building does not really look new but the rooms were renovated with a modern feel. Experienced good service from the staff (front desk and restaurant). They were attentive... More

This was a great location for someone wanting to walk everywhere. We were only staying a night and this did NOT break the bank. The hotel room was very nice and updated. The bar downstairs was great for drinks before bed and we also had lunch before leaving town. This was a great, safe location. I highly recommend it.

For a fair price and a good location, this hotel is nice. Swarming with people, which is I guess to be expected in the summer. Bonuses: Starbucks off of the lobby, quick walk to Metro station, right down the street from Air & Space Museum, easy to get a cab from the lobby, large-ish gift shop with necessities Dislikes: hotel...

Trains run all night long behind the property, and despite wearing earplugs, you can still hear the train running and blowing its whistle. The air conditioning system is on a motion sensor, so you warm up during the night, wake up and have to walk toward the air conditioner to get it to start up again. Aside from these two... More

This is a great hotel for families, perfect location for the major DC sites, inexpensive food options and 15 minutes from Washington National Airport. Wifi is fast, rooms very clean and recently updated. Pool is small but great for a quick dip or to bribe the kids to behave. Not many upscale restaurants, improves with a 20 minute walk north...

I got a great deal on this hotel, for a long weekend in the capital. I stayed here with my three kids and all of us loved this hotel. For starters there is a reasonably priced parking garage right under the hotel, making unloading and loading the car very easy. Check in was smooth and this is when I received... More

We visited DC the week of the 4th if July with the kids and my parents and this was THE perfect place to stay!!! It is so close to everything and the kids absolutely loved the rooftop swimming pool where you can see the Capitol. We walked most everywhere and took the Metro a little too. The night of the...
