My reservation was made by the organization that was sponsoring a conference, so it wasn't my choice, but I was happy that I stayed here. Lovely hotel with atmosphere. Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. My room was clean, well appointed and comfortable. The shower was fantastic, especially the temperature control. The fitness center was small but had... More

Stayed in Grand King Deluxe (renovated), and loved it. We also had a good room rate. Room and bed were comfortable and nicely decorated. Bathroom was nice; amenities were perfect. The location is phenomenal--lovely location and very close to restaurants, subway, bakeries, neighborhood grocery stores, Phillips museum, other house museums, etc. and is right in the middle of the embassies....

Stayed here based on other reviews and was not disappointed. The staff were all incredibly friendly. The room was beautiful in an older classic style. Surprisingly quiet and couldn't hear doors, elevator or other guests. Breakfast buffet was slightly better than average. Great location with lots of local restaurants. Would definitely return and would consider staying here rather than other... More

My husband and I took our 3 young boys (ages 3, 7 and 10 years old) to D.C. on vacation. We were wondering how comfortable we would feel in this elegant, boutique hotel with our kids, but ultimately we picked it because we were looking for a hotel with charm and in a good location. We found the staff to... More

I stayed here for three nights in late March for a long weekend getaway. It couldn't have been nicer. The front desk staff was the most courteous I've ever met. I was a little early but it was no problem getting up into a room. I really appreciated the free Washington Post every morning. I wasn't feeling well so slept... More

My wife and I stayed in this hotel on march 2015. We stayed there for 3 nights. All the facility is "perfect", the bar, the gym. The only minor thing is that do not have spa neither indoor swimming pool.

Booked this hotel under the pretense that it was a 4 1/2 star property - it is nowhere near. We had a Superior Suite, which was a great size for our family, but in need of updating and repair. Mold in shower, ripped furniture, peeling wallpaper, worn carpet, etc. I have stayed in nicer Comfort/Hampton Inns. The service was also... More

We enjoyed our stay here - although it was pricey and irritating that for this price free wi-fi wasn't available in the rooms. There were lots of people in the lobby frantically using their phones! It would have been better value if breakfast was included. We ate in the bar/grill one night as we were so tired from sightseeing and... More
