I expect it served it's purpose as we needed to be close to the capital. aside from that there was nothing spectacular bout the room or the rest of the hotel. I had received an email allowing me to request late checkout (4 p.m. vs 11 a.m.) for a fee which I was happy to pay as I really would... More

I stayed here while attending a convention being held in the meeting rooms at this location. It was a good stay with everything nicely appointed. It is located close to the capital which we visited a couple of times through out the week. Parking is expesive, but free street parking in the evening until 7am. The rooms are nice, the... More

The hotel has undergone some renovations and is absolutely beautiful. The rooms are very spacious and the beds are very comfortable. Something I enjoy and you do not always see are such enormous bathtubs , you can actually lie down in them. The staff is very friendly and accommodating.The Atrium is a great place to sit, kick-back and have a... More

This hotel was simply beautiful from the moment my wife and I walked in. I found this hotel on hotels.com as we were looking for a weekend getaway in our own backyard. The hotel was a short walk from union station. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our room was very clean. The door to our room had a... More

The staff was very friendly. Decent drinks and late night food at the bar in the lobby (we got the flatbread pizza). The rooms themselves are very spacious and clean. The bathrooms especially are large, clean, and nice (all marble floors, etc). My only complaint is that the shower didn't stay as hot as I would have liked, and I... More

Location: I would like to begin and say I was excited about this hotel because of the awesome location. It was close to the Union Station, about a five minute walk. The distance with walking towards the Mall of museums weren't bad. It was a nice spot. Service: So, my friends and I wanted to do a Girls Weekend in... More

Stayed at this hotel July 20-24, 2014. The bellmen were very friendly and nice but that ended there. The front staff was horrible. Very rude and unfriendly. They acted like you were bothering them. The room itself was absolutely filthy. The bedspread had a big stain on it, the bathroom had mold all along the bathtub. The coffee pot didn't... More

I spent my fifth wedding anniversary at this hotel with my wife. Initially selected because of its proximity to Union Station and price (I compulsively shop on Groupon), I did not expect much after reading some of the other reviews. HOWEVER as the title indicates, the customer service was amazing. Prior to arrival, I contacted the hotel to see what... More

There is really nothing distinctive about this hotel. It's fine. The room was clean. They charge for Wifi. But, I put dishes from room service in the hall and they sat there for 24 hours. I also heard a lot of noise from the street even on the 9th floor. If your're traveling on business there are probably better choices... More
