This hotel is excellent but is not without minor faults. The service is very good and well-intentioned but I found it a bit intrusive. During my stay, the staff were convinced that I had called and asked for two lightbulbs to be changed in my room (I had not). I had informed them they must have the wrong room but there were two additional follow ups, which I did not appreciate given that I was jetlagged and trying to sleep early.
However, overall the hotel is top notch and the rate we received was competitive. I ordered room service 3 times and each time it was delivered promptly. This hotel provides excellent service but they do tend to charge a lot for each item. I did, however, appreciate the complimetary shoe shine service.
Overall, despite the minor faults, I would rate this hotel as a '5' given that the rate we paid was very competitive and provided good value. If you are looking for a top notch experience in the DC area, this hotel will fulfill your requirements.
