The decor is a little kitschy/ a bit much, but at the rock bottom price we paid and the offer to add two drinks at the bar or breakfast for a $1 coupled with location made this place an excellent deal. Good work space and WiFi. Clean if ridiculously decorated rooms. Good Kimpton service and loyalty perks, even at one of their lower end properties.
The valet even handled our film crew's giant passenger van in their tiny, tiny pull in driveway without complaint.
The bar is loud and crowded but has a good selection on beer and cocktails (wine list stinks though) and the patio is probably really nice in the Spring.
Breakfast was serviceable and the free coffee in the bar/breakfast room is excellent quality even by coffee snob standards.
For those who like good, up and coming restaurants, the location between U Street and DuPont is unbeatable, especially if the drink or breakfast special is on and the price is right.
