We stayed here for our annual trip to visit with elected officials. The service was superb. The hotel was clean. I hear from one of our fellow travelers the opportunity to share the gym was awesome and one of the best gyms he's been to. Thanks for a great stay for 17 of us!

Welcoming hotel, clean, nice meeting space, good sports bar. My trip got off on the right foot when Christiana was my check-in clerk. She was welcoming and helpful. The banquet service staffers were uniformly pleasant and helpful. Comfortable place for a conference. The meeting rooms are an easy distance from the sleeping rooms.

When in D.C. I always try and stay here! So close to everything and yet so quite. Lounge is excellent and the service superior. Also, guests have access to Vida Fitness, a full spa and fitness facility that far exceeds any gym you would find in a Marriott property. Staff is perhaps the best I have ever seen, even got...

I really liked this hotel. It was very well presented, immaculate yet comfortable hotel. The staff I came across were all very polite and helpful. My room wasn't huge but it was perfectly adequate, very clean and comfortable - I even had a view of the Washington monument from my window which was fab. The lobby / bar area was... More

Conveniently located in DC this is a high quality hotel with good standards of service and amenities. Check in was smooth and quick and my membership of the Marriott rewards scheme was noted. The room itself was of a reasonable size with a pleasant view of New York Avenue. The bathroom has only a single sink which could be an... More

Like many of the other reviewers I agree that this is an ideal location for a visit to DC. Close to many of the attractions that have already been mentioned that DC had to offer. This was my second trip to this hotel for the same event in town every year. An easy walk to Chinatown, Verizon Center and the... More

Dear winerunr, Thank you so much for writing a review about our hotel and recognizing our amazing location. I appreciate your feedback on blackout drapes in your room. All of our rooms should have blockout drapes so if you can contact me and let me know what room you stayed so that I may personally check its condition, I would... More

Rooms were very clean and generously stocked with towels, coffee and tea, Aveda products (for the ladies!), great sitting areas in the lobby, Starbucks attached, convenient parking garage. Highly recommend.

This hotel is in an excellent location. Surrounded by restaurants and within walking distance of many DC attractions. A bit expensive but I would stay here again for the location. Rooms are clean and decently decorated, and the room was fairly quiet. No free breakfast, but a mini fridge in the room so we could stock up on a few... More

Certainly not a terrible hotel, but the room was overly underwhelming for the almost $300 price. The lobby was nice and everything was clean and modern, but the room itself was tiny and very bland. The bed was comfy and the shower good, but again, the boxy feeling of the room with almost bare white walls did not provide a... More

Dear frank3355, Thank you for taking the time to write a review about our hotel. I appreciate your feedback regarding the great feel of the lobby; however, you were underwhelmed by our room design. Our rooms were renovated in neutral colors in order to appeal to any discoverer while the artwork is whimsical New Yorker cartoons in the bedroom and... More
