I used to stay here when this was a 5 star swissotel... this is not the same anymore, but the price did not get down !
Nethertheless the rooms are still large, with marble bathrooms. It is a quiet place.
I arrived after a night flight from LA at 8 am : they allowed me to get the room at that early time in the mornong with no extra charge so that I could have a nap and shower...
Breakfast at the restaurant, with the view on the Potomac is a real pleasure.
There used to be a swimming pool here but there is no more...
The staff is not very numerous bau is quite efficient.
To summarize, this hotel gets old, and sometimes does not look as clean as it should be. It is still a good hotel but this will not last for years without refrurbishment !
