Upon arriving to the Hotel I was met by Brittany who had a very nice smile on her face. I asked her if there were any upgrades I could have. She said that I was already upgraded to a little bit larger room but I went a little further and asked for the best upgrade telling her I'd be happy... More

Room is big and really nice! Breakfast is great and was for free although we didnt book it (got vouchers when we arrived). Parking garage is very pricy (around 25$ per night), however this is average for the area. Location is great, subway close, but white house etc. is in walking distance!

My daughter and I stayed with friends here for 3 nights. The staff was friendly and accommodating, the rooms were clean, the location was great. What lowers my review from very good to average is the following: The shower had no pressure. It was a tiny rain shower flush with the ceiling which felt like a drizzle. It was impossible... More

We traveled to Washington last week with our children and the hotel was disappointing - the double room with queen size beds was very small - smaller than it looks on the photos - you almost got claustrophobic Could not recommend to stay on this hotel...except you want tiny room.

Location of this hotel is excellent right on 14th street NW, with easy access to major attractions and restaurants. I have stayed at this property before and had a better experience. The hotel itself was in good shape and had no problems with the elevators as people have previously commented. We booked this room via Priceline and the rate was... More

This hotel is fantastic! I have stayed here many times before, but this was the first time post-reno. It looks absolutely wonderful. The hallways and guestroom have been touched up and look very sleek and professional. I love the beds with the leather upholstery. I read a review below re. the mattress being hard. Maybe I'm not picky, but I... More

Located on 14th street between K and L street makes this a very good location. Booking online on hotels website made this a good deal. This is a boutique hotel and I am not quite sure what that means. However, this hotel stands out from other hotels with furnitures and design. Good beds, fairly spacious rooms and a very nice...

I just returned from a 2-night stay and I was very disappointed. I usually stay at Kimptons when I can because they're unique and friendly, but this left a bad taste in my mouth for the whole chain. Upon check in I was told that we had received our requested upgrade for a Premier Suite, at an additional cost of... More

Stayed here with a bunch of friends for a bachelor party and had a great time. The hotel is brand new with renovated rooms that were designed thoughtfully. The hotel made every effort to make our stay enjoyable and even brought champagne for the groom. Great view from the King Premier corner room. Cool teacup tub in the room as... More
