“Wonderful hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

We had a wonderful night in this beautiful hotel. It is clean, convenient, spacious, and the staff is very friendly, helpful, and competent. The location is perfect for sightseeing or business. We felt safe and secure. The ONLY drawback is the $44 parking fee.

Hello Joyce M,

Thank you for posting this great review! I'm really glad your stay was an enjoyable one. Parking rates in Washington have gotten to be pretty high in recent years. As noted, our current rate is $44 (tax inclusive), which is the best valet parking rate at any Capitol Hill area hotel. We pride ourselves on continuing to offer great value despite our outstanding location, service, and overall product. Thanks again for posting a review. We appreciate the feedback.

Sincerely,

Donte Johnson

We stayed here as part of a wedding block and were impressed by the location and value. One block from the metro and close to the Capitol, Eastern Market, National Mall and other great places to explore, this hotel is a great deal for the price. An older building, with updated furnishings and all the amenities you expect, each room has a slightly different layout and lots of character. We had a superior suite and it was huge, the size of a small apartment, including a kitchen, walk in closet, and gorgeous bathroom. It was perfect for our family of four.

Hello Trippyslooomis,

Thank you for posting a review of your stay with us. It's great to hear that your family of four was comfortable at the hotel. I also love reading that our guests are getting out into our neighborhood and exploring the charm and uniqueness of Capitol Hill. It really can't be beat. Bring the family back for a little DC vacation sometime. We'd like that. Thanks again for the review.

I stayed in the one bedroom suite and had tons of space. Loved the fact I had a fridge and microwave, which was very handy because the hotel doesn't serve any lunch or dinner. There is a coffee machine in the room with complimentary coffee and tea, you can also get cold water and coffee or tea for free in the lobby. The bed was huge and extremely comfortable. The location is perfect for a visit to all major attractions and memorials in DC. Only a few minutes walk away from the metro station, a 5 minute walk away from the Capitol and a 20 minute walk away from Union Station. Also this hotel doesn't charge for wireless unlike many other hotels. Breakfast is included and can be very busy but you can just stack up a plate and eat in your room or suite. Also has a free wine hour. I found all the staff really friendly and helpful and I definitively recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Can't comment on the hotel rooms but the suite has heating or AC, a microwave, a fridge, ironing...

Only one block from the Metro and walking distance to the Capitol, Union Square and the Mall, my one bedroom suite was wonderfully spacious, with a living room, kitchen and table to eat at. No accommodation in Washington is cheap, but with the stay 3 nights, get the fourth night free special, this was reasonable. Bed was comfortable but quite high.

My wife and I recently spent the weekend here and were very pleasantly surprised by the high standard of the whole hotel, especially for a very reasonable price ( for Washington). The room a good size and well appointed with the added advantage of a mini kitchen, we really only took advantage of the fridge but the microwave was useful for making water hot enough to make a reasonable cup of tea with (yes, we are English). The free breakfast was another bonus, with plenty on offer to keep us trekking round Washington's widely spaced visitor attractions, although Capitol Hill was within spitting distance should you be so inclined (Government shutdown was on during our visit). All in all a very pleasant stay and would be happy to stay there again should I ever visit Washington again.

Hello Doug F,

It's always great to get a little Tripadvisor love from our guests from across the pond! It's really great to read that you and your wife had an excellent stay with us. I'm sorry that the government decided to take a "holiday" in honor of your visit. Hopefully, this will give you an incentive to return soon. We'd love to have you back.

Really enjoyed our stay, if only for one night. The hotel is perfectly located for visiting the sites of DC. We came and left by train and it was a walkable distance. Our suite was quite expansive and well-equipped for a longer stay. Great to have a kitchen, even though we took advantage of the hotel's complimentary breakfast.

Room Tip: There are two buildings in the complex, make sure you go to the main entrance to check in.

We were a party of six and stayed here for 4 nights. It was a really friendly and good hotel. We were in suites which were well equipped and clean. Breakfast was fine, however the room was very small and got over crowded at weekend. They had a wine reception in the weekday evenings. Would def recommend

Room Tip: No pool, don't know how to delete, didn't use room service
