We recently stayed at the hotel for a wedding and found the staff very helpful. The location is great with Amtrak station ,metro stop and trolley right across the street. The lobby is a great place to hang out and visit with friends.

I booked a youth group that was visiting for the Girl Scouts' 100th Anniversary celebration on the mall. Overall, our stay was very good. The rooms were spacious. They had a small kitchenette with microwave and refrigerator/freezer which comes in handy with children. The sales group and manager were accomodating. However, I had a few comments that our group was... More

I have stayed at this hotel previously and will continue to each time I am in the area. If you are going to be exploring DC, this is the perfect starting point for you. King Street Station (Metro/Subway) is directly across the street. It is so convenient. I have rented a car before but did not this trip. You do... More

My son was married on a riverboat on the Potomac. He reserved a block or rooms at this hotel for the out of town guests for this wedding. The price was most reasonable. Location is outstanding! The folks that flew into National Airport just hopped on the metro, rode for two stops, and were at the hotel. The atrium was... More

We loved the place. It's in a great location and we enjoyed strolling Old Town in the evenings after a day of sightseeing in DC. Metro rail is right across the street and we went everywhere. Once we parked our car we didn't need it until we checked out. The rooms were spacious enough for our family of 6. Our... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I appreciate that you acknowledged our staff, as I truly believe them to be most deserving.

We were there with a wedding group and several of our reservations were incorrect on check in including the bride's. It took a bit of doing but they did fix things.

This hotel was a great location for our trip to DC. The metro yellow line is right across the street! Very easy to get around on the metro. The neighborhood was fine. We took the free Old Town Trolley to some cute shops. The front desk staff was helpful with direction on the bus to Mt. Vernon.

You can tell the management has been working hard on making this a strong property. Communication was great about the amenities and services available. The train station is across the street and plenty of dining options are in the area. I will recommend this to others heading to the DC area.
