This hotel is a great place to stay. The rooms are well maintained and very clean. The staff is very courteous and very polite. Their complimentary breakfast is well above the rest of the hotels near the area. Their dinner meals are the best! Compliments to the dinner chef! Overall a great place to stay.

Dear EkortV, it is very satisfying to see a growing amount of travelers discovering our meal periods as the best in town! Particular since both our breakfast and our dinners are free. It’s just one of many ways that we build value that sets ourselves apart from the competition. I understand completely that you have a choice for your lodging... More

Chose this hotel due to proximity of my daughters apartment. The location to the Eisenhower metro is great, an easy 2 block walk. I would jump on and off the metro at all times of the day and night. Felt safe at all times. The staff was exceptional! Every person I came across was polite, helpful and professional. Did not... More

Thank you for writing such an “exceptional” review about my hotel. The pride I have of my staff grew larger as I read each line of your comments. We work very hard every day to achieve this effect on all of our guests, and to see that goal come to fruition is extremely rewarding. It also helps that we are... More

Stayed here with friends while visiting DC for a ladies weekend. DiDi, Pam and the entire staff were so friendly and helpful. Great location, easy walk to 2 Metro stations. We did take advantage of the free shuttle. The driver was very friendly and went out of his way to be sure we knew where we were going. Rooms were... More

Dear Dolores R, thank you very much for such a great array of compliments that you wrote about my hotel and staff. It is especially meaningful when specific names are mentioned. Our Chef does a fantastic job preparing her own secret recipes which puts our complimentary meal periods a cut above the rest of the hotels in the area. Coupling... More

I've been in this hotel for a month now. From the moment I checked into the hotel, my experiences with the hotel staff were so great. The front desk personnel were so polite, helpful and respectful.

I stayed here on business due to the proximity to the metro stop. While I was somewhat concerned reading other reviews on this site, I found the hotel to be in a perfectly safe area (literally 1 block from the US Attorney and 2 blocks from the US Courthouse). The best metro option is the Yellow line, exiting at Eisenhower,... More

Thank you for writing such a wide breadth of compliments regarding my hotel.

The Federal Courthouse just across the street, and the neighborhood is upscale, clean, and safe. We are also in terrific walking distance to... More

I can't say enough good stuff about this hotel. It starts with their staff - I even remember their names - Cassandra and Pam - because they were so terrific. We got our room on a discount site. We were in town for the Art Festival. The price was very reasonable, so I wasn't expecting much. What a surprise. We... More

What a great place - the front desk staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. They have a manager meet and greet Monday - Thursday. Last night they served a Chicken Afritada that was so delicious.

Thank you for the great compliment on my staff and food. That Chicken Afritada dish is a personal recipe of our Chef and it is only available here at our hotel exclusively. If you thought that was delicious she has a lot more specialty dishes better than the Afritada! You’ll just have to come back again to taste them! Thanks... More
