Wanted something a bit more interesting when we booked from the UK. This Washington Hotel fits the bill nicely and we had 2 nights here at the start of our 22 day trip to the USA. Walkable from the National Mall with no worries we had a full day walking around and doing the Smithsonian, in a couple of its forms..
Designed with cool and modern decor it wasn't big, downstairs but everything was there. Staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was nice and the food in the bar great, if you wanted to stay in of an evening. I had a couple of really nice beers from a good beer list.
The room was huge with two massive beds and had all the standard big hotel features. I joined Kimpton InTouch to get WiFi and because I was impressed with this first taste of the Kimpton Hotel group. I'd use them again, now.
Our only downside was getting scammed by a private hire taxi on the trip back to Dulles to pick up the hire car. They were hanging around outside the hotel and when the receptionist couldn't find another taxi we took this one and were overcharged. This was nothing to do with the hotel... more the lack of availability of metered taxis. Just a warning! We would probably be more sensible in London but everything was new and we were early on the trip.
