“Good service but decor getting tired”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2011

Have stayed here every year now for several years. First the bad stuff; at our last stay, in May of 2010, noticed how the room carpet needed a good clean. This year May 2011, the carpets appear still not to have been cleaned but also need replacing. The bathroom had black mold by the shower on the floor. Pool was closed for our stay. Hotel was designed with either too slow elevators or not enough elevators...wait can be long. Now the good stuff; great service and attitude (especially room service). Hip hotel with good location on P Street...but time for remodel please....will not stay again until this happens.

This hotel is amazing. Firstly, we were upgraded for free! The suite was a great size and so comfortable. Free wine and nibbles in the evenings. Loved the animal print robes! A funky hotel with a great restaurant in a fantastic Washington location. Great neighbourhood - bit of a walk to the tourist attractions but there was a subway stop nearby.

I found this hotel on Trip Advisor and there's a reason it is #1. Staff were very friendly, capable and repsonsive. There was no remote for the tv in my room and 5 minutes after I called the room service, a technician was at my door with a replacement. I didn't eat in the restaurant but I did order in and the food and service was excellent.

Bottom line, I will stay again.

Everything that's been said before is true. Went with our grandson who enjoyed the chocolate chip cookies and milk, the pool and the movies they loan out. Service was great. You won't be dissappointed!! The only drawback is the very pricey breakfast, but there are plenty of other places on the block to choose from.

The hotel is stylish, the rooms large, but most of all the service is superb. The front office staff is superfriendly and you can feel they actually love what they do and you can sense that they enjoy the team work there. The same for the waiting staff and the bell boys - they recognize you, they are friendly and not once did we see an unhappy face.

I have been there now for the 3rd time - and each single time - my experience was the same. I can only recommend this hotel - you will see they make you feel at home.

From the time we walked in the lobby until we were assisted by the valet staff leaving two day later it was a great experience. The service, room apperance and care, food and casual atomsphere all contributed to a super "32" year wedding anniversary celebration. I will return!
