Better late than never, I'm catching up on reviews. This great find was our own DC apartment for 5 days. We got a room with balcony overlooking the circle. Loved sitting out there at the end of a long day, watching all of the different kinds of people walking by.
Decor was somewhat dated, we didn't care, it was amazingly clean, spacious and comfortable - not common in large eastern cities in the US, at least for a reasonable price (our room price was great compared to others with similar amenities/convenient location).
The staff was both personable and professional and the restaurant downstairs was handy, if a little over-priced. Normal noise for a large city hotel, it didn't bother us a bit, but if you're sensitive, ask for a quiet room. About a 15 minute walk to the Mall. Some excellent restaurants nearby, and a Trader Joe's around the corner. Easy walk to DuPont Circle, great strolls in quaint and historic neighborhoods, too. We are an older couple and had no problem walking to Georgetown, The Mall, indeed, everywhere!
Special thanks to the marvelous staff. It would have been a good holiday without you, but your humor and attentiveness made it extra special - you guys were so busy, I don't know how you do it!
