5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

This was my first trip to Washington, so it was difficult for me to assess in advance whether the price for this hotel was a good value considering the location, but for $85 a night it seemed that it was a good deal. They gave me the room directly next to the lobby (very convenient), and it was also a HUGE room (it was a wheelchair-accessible room, despite me not being physically handicapped at all). I know that standard rooms are far smaller than a wheelchair-accessible room, but the extra room really made my 5-night stay that much more comfortable. The staff were extremely helpful when I needed anything. It's easy to imagine that at some point during my 5-night stay, I'd run into some kind of problem or issue, but my stay was 100% problem free. I was slightly disappointed that the pool was closed, considering it was July. It's a short walk to the subway and an easy drive in and out of the city. If you don't own a car, it's probably not ideal to stay here as it's a bit of an awkward location for pedestrians. If I returned to DC, I'd happily stay here again without hesitation.

Location is good, breakfast is good, the staff is friendly, let us "park" our luggages for 5 hours the day we checked out but still were being around in the city. We would book again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

The Hotel is located near all the attractions and places we wanted to visit. The room was clean and cool when we came in. There are sufficient towels and pillows, fridge and coffeemaker, no microwave in the room but its okay since there is one in the lobby. The shower/water is strong which is very good. Parking was plenty and cameras in place. The only downside was, the first night, we cannot sleep well because the hotel is on top of the underground railway, the shaking is not too bad when you get used to it. The rest of the stay was marvelous. The front desk was very helpful and courteous. Will definitely stay again.
