single king was clean and nice only minutes away from the capitol and that end of the mall. Small pool on the roof that looked nice but we didnt have time to use it. Some confusion when checking in on where to park. There is a parking garage right at the end of the block that might be worth checking... More

This is a great hotel for visiting all the sights of Washington DC. There is a lovely walk - about 5 miles from hotel to Tidal Basin to Washington Mt, down the mall, past all the Smithsonian Buildings.

My husband and 2 -18 year olds stayed overnight and enjoyed the stay. It is pretty close to the Mall and most all of the museums - within walking distance, however a $6.00 cab ride as well. The room was spacious and very clean. The bathroom was also spacious and the overall room was well maintained. We did not eat... More

I stayed here to attend a class at The Graduate School, which is literally across the street. The hotel is very nice, the room was nice and spacious, and very clean. All the people who worked there were friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable. The hotel has two restaurants in it, plus a little shop that sells snacks, including fudge! I could... More

I agree with everyone the hotel has an excellent location. But the hotel experience was brutal! I booked a room with 2 queen beds through Hotels.com, got the 4 page notice that once booked would not be able to change my reservation or cancel and I would forfeit the whole charge - $798.00 for 3 nights!!!! Got to the hotel... More

Let the wife book our stay at this fantastic hotel. We arrived at Friday, got right in, and hit the streets. Its at perfect location, with a CVS, Quiznos, and McDonalds within 1 minute. You are a block and half from the National Air and Space Museum... my favorite, and once you in the "museum mall" area, you are 5-45... More

This hotel has an EXCELLENT location. One block to Air and Space Museum, the pick up point for several tours and about one and a half blocks from L'Enfant Plaza subway. McDonalds, Quiznos and CVS all in the same block. The hotel staff was very helpful. The laundry facilities were better than average, and the security on the elevators was... More

I called a couple of days in advance to confirm our reservation (2 adults and 2 teenagers). I was told we had a king room. I told them I had reserved a room with 2 beds as we had 4 people on our reservation. I was told this was only a request and not a guarantee. I couldn't believe they... More

We just returned from a 4th of July vacation that included four nights here. Our room on the 9th floor had recently been renovated and was nicely appointed. The beds were about the most comfortable we've ever had in a hotel. Space was rather tight for our family of four but the room was functional. The "mini" fridge was bigger... More
