This small boutique hotel in the northwest area was a perfect location for our first trip to the Capitol. The room was nicely appointed, with a spacious bath, crisp linens and a friendly, helpful staff. We were able to walk to the monuments and down Constitution to a number of museums. We did take a cab to and from our tour of the Capitol Building due to distance and rain. The proximity to George Washington University added an academic flavor to our experience. Only negatives: whatever work was being done during the evening at a nearby location meant lots of noise-trucks backing up, trash/glass being dumped, construction sounds. Be prepared for expensive food if you eat in-house, although it is quite good.
