I've been coming to DC very frequently for a very long time and remember when this part of town was not a good place to stop. It's great to see such a huge turnaround and this hotel adds to it. The Metro is a 2 min walk from the hotel and about a 10 minute trip from the museums. The staff is extremely friendly and the rooms are immaculate. The comforter on the bed could be thicker but that's what the heat is for I suppose. The parking charge is steep but you're not going to find any better rate at any other place so close to the Capitol. Worth it in my mind for the time and money saved on traveling from a hotel in Virginia. Best of luck to you if you think you're going to drive downtown and find a parking spot. I did get a little nervous when I looked out my window and saw a Metro train run directly past the hotel, but the room was very quiet and the noise was barely noticeable. The Metro doesn't run all night anyway. The room rate was very fair considering the proximity to attractions and the fact that much older hotels charge about the same or more and charge for wifi (I'm looking at you, Embassy Suites). I will definitely stay here again and look forward to my next trip.
