This hotel really is 'cool.' Room decorations are very modern from the wall hangings and sheer curtains to the striped futon couch and retro dresser / mini bar. The mini bar, by the way, has a good variety of standards (beer, juice, chips, water, Snickers) with the added fun of wax lips, pop-rocks, various medicinal packets, a yoga CD, DC map and more. And if you sign up for their free points program, you get a $10 mini-bar tab and free wifi! Did I mention the free champagne & wine at 5pm everyday? Well there you are. The gym is TINY and not very useful but if you can get a free pass to the Y a few blocks away which is huge (limited #, they go eary in the AM). The downsides to this place are location (not SUPER close to a metro) and breakfast (typical crappy continental) though there are menu options too. Looking forward to staying here again!
