Upon my arrival to the front desk, I was greeted by a wonderful, upbeat, friendly gentleman named Manny. Manny is a breath of fresh air! The front desk staff, Calvin, Samantha, Tyler, Karen and Haheem are awesome (forgive me if I have spelled names incorrectly). This was my first stay. I had to be in the office early the next...

The staff was great, especially Manny! All shifts of the front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms are large and updated. Breakfast at nearby Au Bon Pain is good and convenient. Cons are street noise is loud and pillows are uncomfortable.

We found this location ideal as a base to discover Washington DC & all it provides. Within walking distance for the Metro Station, hop on /hop off bus & many good options for all mealtimes. The doorman Manny was a font of information & able to organise taxis, give opinions on entertainment venues

This is a great place to stay when visiting DC. Great location close to many food options and a Metro station right down the street. The beds are very comfortable and the desk staff and valet staff (especially Manny) are very friendly.

Loved staying at Hotel RL, Washington D.C. while in town for several days. Front desk staff is friendly and I loved the amenities in the bathroom - so cute and smelled great. I also was impressed by the beds - HUGE pillows and super comfy beds. I would absolutely stay here again.

This hotel needs to specify that the parking lot they use is not there parking lot. It's a lot that isn't connected to the building you will get lost going in. Also they charged my card an additional $40 for parking after I already paid with cash. The itinerary stated that breakfast was included. However, we received a nasty box... More
