We stayed for 4 days just prior to Christmas 2012. The rooms generally were a bit old and tired and could do with updating. The curtains were torn, and was just generally a bit dirty. Bathroom was fine with good shower. The beds were very comfortable. Self catering was basic - a microwave, fridge, stove and coffee maker. Would have been good to have proper crockery coffee cups (2 paper cups provided only) and a toaster. The availability of a laundry was great but the hotel couldn't provide change (the in room book said they would). The staff members on desk were not particularly friendly or helpful. We couldn't use the hotel security safe because the staff member on desk couldn't operate them.
Used the gym a couple of times - was small but very clean and modern equipment.
On the positive side, there is a great supermarket (Whole Foods) at Foggy Bottom Metro and both are a very short walk away which made getting about Washington really easy. We walked to the White House - maybe a 10 or 15 minute walk.
