I checked in on Wednesday, April 3 and checked out on Sunday, April 7.
UPON ARRIVAL: The staff was friendly, efficient and helpful. I was handed a list of adjacent restuarants and a map of the area, as well as a big choclate chip cookie.
THE ROOM: A suite that is huge, with a separate living room, full ktchen (refrigeratore, oven, microwave and dishwasher), a separate bedroom, a closet alcove and a good-size bathroom. The room was spotless and everything was in working order. (Can I live here full time?)
SERVICE WHILE AT HOTEL: The entire staff was excellent. Continental breakfast is served - donuts bagels, cream cheese, butter jam, coffee, milk and other things that I didn't pay attention to because I only had the coffee. I need protein for breakfast, On Saturday and Sunday there are croissants.
When I needed a cab and one was not outfront, one was called for me and because the bell hop was busy a maintenance man opened the cab door for me.
LOCATION: Excellent. The hotel is 2 1/2 blocks from the Metro's Foggy Bottom station (Orange & Blue lines) and 2 stops from Metro Center where one can switch to the Red line. There is a 711 a block away from the hotel, George Washington University surrounds the hotel. A number of good restuarants (recommended by friends) are located around the hotel. There is a Trader Joe's, approximately 0.3 miles from the hotel (at 1101 25th Street NW, Washington, DC 20037), that is open from 10am to 10 pm and has a good selection of wines.
