I had the pleasure to spend a few nights at this place in Washington for a business trip. It was on a list of recommendations from our host and had by far the best reviews from all options on the list (and many of the other options were big chain 5* properties at double the price).
The stay was perfect. And the staff lived up to the expectations. From check-in to check-out each member of the staff was friendly, willing to help and always giving me the feeling that they were happy I was their guest.
The rooms are ok. Good size, all the bells and whistles you need. Location for me was perfect. Public transportation around the corner, close to the offices where I had to be, and in walking distance of the white house.
They do a good breakfast service (for american standards that is) and have a small but very nice patio.
What makes this property so good at the end is the value you get for your money. Great location, good rooms, FANTASTIC staff at a reasonable price.
Will I go back? For sure. My next stay in DC will be at Avenue Suites.
