Chose this hotel as I need a refrigerator in my for medications and hotel rooms here have small kitchens. Checked in at front desk and asked for change for a $20 so I could tip the bellman. The clerk told me to go to the CVS Drugstore next door as she has no change. Went up to the room and it was dark and dingy. The carpeting was stained and the room overlooked an office building next door. I later learned that it was one of the worst rooms in place, which is not what you give a traveler who will be with you 4 nights and 5 days.
Complained to the front desk manager about the clerk the next day but never received a follow up. I also want to mention the shower. Hotels save money with sink faucets and special toilets. Please let us have a decent shower. These fancy showerheads will not work if the water pressure is deliberately low so as to save water. Coffee maker was one of those toy-like models and more annoying than convenient.
Location bustles during the day and is very convenient to the White House, subway and museums, but is dead after dark which makes it a bit spooky if you're not familiar with DC. On the plus side -- internet was fast, easy and free. As the clerk mentioned, there is a huge CVS next door to the lobby which also has some nice prepared meals at reasonable prices. Will not stay here again.
