“Great base for DC trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Best part was the location practically right outside the NoMa-Gallaudet metro stop...room was spacious and clean...great wifi and having the business center was nice to be able to print out some stuff...staff were very efficient and friendly...not much in the immediate surroundings of the hotel other than a 7-eleven and a Five Guys Burgers though...otherwise, a great choice for traveling in DC!

Just spent 2 nights at this hotel...the rooms are comfortable and clean but you can hear everything in the hallway. Location was okay...next to a metro stop but so much construction in the area made it a bit hard to navigate. We had a nightmare the 2nd night...a group of kids from Italy were on our floor...slamming doors and screaming the hallways...called reception 3 times and nothing. My husband yelled at them...then I did (not quite as nicely as he did)...then I had to go down to reception to pitch a fit. (Seriously, the noise was ridiculous...doors slammed more than 40 times in an hour...and I mean SLAMMED!) finally a security guard came up...they called all of their chaperones...it finally quieted down around midnight. Honestly not sure if I would recommend or stay here again...

My friends and I went on a girls trip and stayed at this hotel. Everyone at the hotel was very nice and helpful. The assistant manager, Micah was awesome! He was very professional, helpful and truly made our experience great! The bartender, Amanuel makes the best drinks so be sure to stop by during happy hour! Overall, our experience was one of the best experiences I've had visiting a hotel and will defintley stay there again! Micah truly cares about the customers and works hard to ensure thier happiness!!!! :)

The rooms are nice and large, the internet works great, the subway station is only 1 minute away.
Like others have mentioned there are train tracks right behind the hotel, it didn't bother me, I slept very well, the windows are sound proof.
The 7 eleven next door was so convenient.
It's a great hotel if you want to stay away from downtown, but still have an easy access to everything by subway.

We stayed here for three nights and had a good time. The hotel's location is convenient as it is about 1min's walk from the NoMa stop of the MetroRail. Also, there are two bikeshare stations nearby if you choose to move around town with those. The exercise room is small, but good and the pool next to it seemed nice enough as well. We did not have breakfast there so can't comment on that. The room was spacious and everything was clean. I would stay there again.

Second time I've stayed here in the last year. Very friendly staff, free wi-fi, 2 minute walk from Metro Red LIne, 1 station from US Capitol. Also has small library with books re fun things to do in DC.

No security problems whatever.
You can pay a LOT more in DC, and I'm not sure I'd walk many blocks in this neighborhood, which is changing for the better. But getting from hotel to Metro is fine - literally half a block (hint, take Florida Av exit from Metro to cut your walk by 1/2)

Had 1 dinner at 5 Guys which is across the street; there is a convenience store right next to the hotel.

I stayed at the hotel for one night on a business trip the week of June 23, 2013. The Metro is a block away and there is a police station around the corner. I checked in at 9:45 pm. The clerk at the check-in desk was very friendly. The check-in is on the second floor. The first floor was manned by 3 or 4 guards, who were also friendly. The neighborhood is going through a gentrification, and what appears to be a change from an idustrial/residential to commercial.

The hotel is fairly new and it is evident in the room I stayed in, the hallways and the elevators. The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was spacious, with an excellent working shower.

The ONE VERY BIZARRE requirement was the fact that guests are required to sign a document that they will be fined several hundred dollars if they make noise. This requirement and the document itself led me to think "oh boy, what kind of night am I going to be having here." Whe I inquired as to why this requirement was exstant, I was met with a blank stare and the following statement "managment requires it". That was not good enough for me, at that juncture!

Indeed, if it was earlier in the day I would have cancelled my reservation and sought out other lodging.

BUT, as it turned out everything was fine. And, upon checkout the staff was again friendly and proficient.

I would stay here again!

Room Tip: Rooms away from construction zone on Florida and New York Avenues and on 5th floor are quieter. R...
