First: the good stuff. The rooms were clean. It is in a great location, being close to the Foggy Bottoms Metro Station and a Whole Foods Store. On a very quiet street, 1/2 block from Watergate. Always felt safe. Beds were comfortable.
Now the not so good. Rooms very dated and shabby. Couch in our room was broken-down and ragged. The kitchen has the bare minimum. One could not fix a meal if one wanted. There were no water glasses, except the ones in the bathroom. We had four very small juice glasses.
Despite placards both in the bedroom and bathroom urging us to conserve by reusing towels and bed linens, the housekeeper ran the dishwasher every single day. One day, it was run for a clean glass that was sitting on the counter and a knife and a spoon. There were never more than four items in the dishwasher when it was run by the housekeeper. THE WORST PART
was no ventilation in the bathroom. Not a fan or any way to get air into the bathroom without leaving the door open. The breakfast was OK. No protein. Just carbs. Several days we found out-dated milk put out for people. Very small room. If you go late, there is not much left.
Lots of workers and mess around because of the renovation, but I knew that. Still felt it was a bit pricey for the stay.
