Prior to our October 2012 stay, I read so many mixed reviews on here about noise, security, etc at this location. Needless to say, it was perfect from check in to check out. We are Gold members of the SPG program and we had 2 rooms for the weekend. We were meeting up with friends and we are all in our early 40s.
We used the valet parking ($50/day) because we are not too familiar with the area to do off site parking. The valet staff and doormen were extremely friendly and professional. This is a very trendy and chic hotel. Very nice ultra modern hotel lobby / lounge area. Upon check-in, they have glasses of champagne to welcome you - very nice touch! We were upgraded to adjoining fabulous rooms, almost overlooking the White House, but the Treasury building was in the way. :( The rooms were very clean with plenty of space to move around.
There is a rooftop bar/lounge which gets really loud and crowded at night with ages ranging from 20s - 40s. We made a reservation for a table without any issues, had some drinks and enjoyed the beautiful view. The security at the elevators were not bad at all. They were very pleasant and professional. We headed back to our rooms a little after midnight. The music was still going strong, but we barely heard it from our room. I am a very light sleeper, but I was able to fall asleep without any effort.
Check out was a breeze. No unexpected charges and you have the option to have your receipt emailed to you. This is definitely a hotel we will return to, without a doubt.
