As other reviewers have observed, the hotel is clean and affordable. The staff, without exception in my experience, are delightful and helpful, and the hotel is well-located (very close to more expensive offers like the Hilton). There is no bar but a daily happy hour of free wine.
However, it could be so much better, especially for guests staying longer than a day or two. I was there a week and there is really nowhere to unpack clothes. There are two small drawers on either side of the bed and that's about it. The wardrobe (aka closet) had four hangers, none of which were suitable for trousers. I had a winter coat, two suits, seven shirts and a casual pair of trousers to hang!
Breakfast is also very limited. I recognise that there are no cooking facilities so hard-boiled eggs is the limit for cooked food, but we only had jam (jelly) on the first day. Surely Washington can offer better quality bread than cheap sliced bread? I had a bagel on one day and it sat in my stomach like a lump of lead. Would a few cut meat and cheeses be too much within the budget? Plain, unsweetened, yoghurt in addition to the over-sweet fruit ones would be welcome. Again, after a day or two the limited offer becomes a disappointment.
