I usually stay at Sheraton and/or Westin properties while on business, but this was quite a value so I thought I'd give it a shot.
I was in town for a conference held at the Convention Center (a few blocks away). I walked each time and felt very comfortable doing so. Starbucks was two blocks away from the hotel and had reasonable hours for business people. The Metro station is a block away -- very convenient for getting around.
Doormen/bellmen were incredibly polite and helpful. Front desk associates were great. Concierge seemed clueless (repeatedly) but I didn't rely on him that much -- just ask the bellman!
Room was very clean, the bed comfortable (with lots pillows). Bathroom was terrific -- granite counters and newly styled everything. The room was smallish but I expected that, given the city. Room's overall comfort was great for a single traveler.
I didn't order from the hotel restaurant, but ate at some terrific restaurants that were only a short cab ride or Metro stop away. Jaleo (spanish tapas), Raku (asian tapas in DuPont Circle), and a nice spot in Chinatown. There is a Subway, Quiznos, and Dominos very close to the hotel, and a large CVS drug store is much better than the closet they call a gift shop at this hotel.
I loved my stay here and won't hesitate to use it for future DC trips, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it...
