The positive side - the hotel is well located if you want to see the sights of Washington. The staff were pleasant, the breakfast buffet adequate for the price, the room clean and serviceable. On the nights the Washington Nationals were playing, the bar did a beer + chicken wings deal for $5. The TV had plenty of channels and pay movies, if you're planning on spending a lot of time in your room.
The average - the place needs refreshing in decor terms. The bathrooms, especially, are tired; but the curtained-off cupboard for clothes was a bit weak, the room safe permanently locked, and the air con was of the working but noisy variety.
The bad - they were completely unable to offer a late checkout as their cleaning shift ended at 3pm. I'd have been happy to pay, but it was a flat no. Parking was quite expensive, at $25 plus taxes a day; and when there is a ball game they rent out their garage so it can be hard to get the space you've paid for. And the overall room rate wasn't cheap.
Overall - would use the place again, but would probably try for one of the bigger chains in preference.
