4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Good clean luxurious rooms, but you get no breakfast and the wifi is not free! Nowadays wifi connection is an important utility - would a hotel get away with charging for, say, hot water? Then how does such an expensive hotel get away for charging for wifi?

The hotel itself is conveniently located to the downtown... More

This is the kind of hotel you can choose for its location - walking distance to White House, Dupont Circle and some other hot spots in Washington DC. The rooms are spacious enough, comfortable and modern. Nothing luxurious, but a great place to rest at the end of a day visiting the city.

First, I want to say that, If it wasn't for Mr. Marcus at the front desk, I don't think that may stay would been enjoyable. I was in DC for work and didn't know that there was a convention in town. Which meant that the crowds were larger than usual. The people at the front desk was very helpful and... More

The location provided the capacity to walk (if you are inclined) to most museums and other places of interest in the downtown area of Washing DC. The staff were helpful as we were unfamiliar to Washington DC.

I was recently in DC from Philadelphia for a three-day teacher conference. The hotel was more or less a place to crash, so I can't speak to everything, but I can say the following: The bed was extremely comfortable (important!). The hotel is conveniently located (within walking distance of many restaurants, as well as the Metro). The staff is very... More

The Hotel is very well located around 5 blocks away from the White house and The National Mall, the rooms are well maintained and equipped, staff is not intrusive and you barely notice the maids. If you walk 5 blocks west there are lots of small restaurants to eat out, a 7 eleven and a Red Bike parking place, 5... More

Very comfortable matresses and bedlinen, clean room, professional service. Some rooms with too much traffic noise. It was helpful to choose a room rate that includes a 50% reduction for car parking. Would stay there again.
