The hotel is smaller than most brand name hotels and the staff quickly gets to know you and provide whatever services you need. It is located in an ideal area, 3 blocks from the White House. It is easy to walk to restaurants and some attractions. The rooms are spacious with excellent bedding and bathroom. The restaurant and bar/lounge area are excellent and outdoor seating is available under shady trees. The staff is well trained and the concierge is very helpful for maps and directions. It is relaxing to be at smaller hotel, especially when you do not have to wait long to get an elevator and the staff makes sure your stay is a pleasure.
