My husband and I have just returned from a week's trip to DC and Williamsburg - we stayed at the L'Enfant while in the city and it was a good choice for us. We took the 5A bus from Dulles for only $3.00 (thanks to a tip from the tripadvisor DC forum!) to L'Enfant Plaza Station - the final bus stop is about 1/2 block from the hotel entrance. The hotel is very near the Mall and Smithsonian and we were able to walk there easily. For destinations further away, the metro station is right under the hotel. On the floor above the metro is The Promenade, with many shops and cafes. Most are open only during weekday business hours, but Oh's Chinese restaurant and the smaller Oh's cafe across the hall are open extended hours. The hotel's positives: the entire staff was unfailingly polite and helpful; check-in was quick and efficient; and our room on the 12th floor had a fabulous view of the Potomac. The only negative was that the room was in need of redecoration, everything in it was worn and/or stained. The hotel restaurants are a bit high priced (typical of full service hotels) but we ate there several times and the food was good each time. We can hardly wait to visit DC again and get to all the places we didn't have time to see. We'll certainly stay at the L'Enfant again.
