Hotel has been converted from a Newspaper office building to a hotel. It has a new modern look to the lobby and rooms. Valet personnel are waiting at the door for arrivals. It is valet parking only. The parking garage across the street.
Rooms are large, we had the king size bed. The pillows were large and hypoallergenic. We were on the 11th floor overlooking the back alley and the buildings behind the hotel.
Ice machines are located on the 3 – 7 floors. 8 – 11 have to go to the other floors. Unfortunately, 6th & 7th floor ice machines were not working either!
Breakfast is the normal fair of eggs, meat, cereals, breads, Danishes, fruit, juices, teas and coffee.
Only a block away from the White House. Easy walking distance to the National Mall and Metro.
Some annoyances, cyclic buzzing sound coming from the roof. Ran the fan on the A/C continuously to drowned out the noise. Garbage truck pickup noise every morning between 4:30 – 6:30 AM.
Overall we were very pleased with the hotel and the location.
