I have stayed in this hotel several times over the past three years for business and it gets worse and worse with each visit. This stay was the worst of all - I was moved rooms three times and still wound up checking into another hotel! The first two moves were drainage related - the sink wouldn't drain in one and the shower would not drain in the other. All three rooms showed signs of age, with stains on the carpet, furniture, and even the comforter. The veneer on the furniture was peeling and the armoire wood was cracked. After my first (and only) night on this stay I began to develop a rash on my leg - similar to another outbreak I had on my first visit three years (which at the time they blamed on insects in the lobby). To top it all off, they were doing work on the facade of the building that caused noise - they should start with re-vamping the inside!
Even though my week was paid for through work, I left and spent my own money at the Grand Hyatt Washington at Metro Center, which was a great hotel and an incredibly convenient location. Although I spend my time on the Mall at the museums for work (and L'Enfant's only appeal is that it is within walking distance to the Mall), it was just as easy to take two stops (about 10 minutes altogether) on the Metro to Smithsonian station.
