I was a tad unsure about this hotel because of its location-north of Union Station. I lived in DC ten years ago, and at that time this would have been a dicey neighborhood. Boy was I surprised! The area the hotel is in, NoMa, is definitely evolving for the better, with new apartment buildings, restaurants and stores. I loved this hotel-it was brand spanking new-bright decor, and everything was spotless. The Red Line Metro is just around the corner and there is a huge grocery store/pharmacy right next door to the hotel. Rooms had a refrigerater and microwave, which was nice, and the beds were very comfortable. Excellent coffee provided, a personal beef of mine with many hotels. I wouldn't travel on foot more than a few blocks in any direction from the hotel at night, but during the day, it's fine anywhere. My only complaint was the TV. Choice of channels was limited and very male-oriented-four ESPN channels, golf, and very little else besides local channels. And it took almost 8 seconds for channels to change from one station to another. This is really minor, however, and I didn't think it was worth complaining about. If they had served a free breakfast, they would have gotten five stars.
