“You Can Tell this Place was Seedy 10 Years Ago.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is almost cool. It's a little strange around the edges. You feel like you've walked into the 1960s when you come in the door. Same with your room. They haven't updated at all, which is odd given their nice location. It is close to the action, though. Stay here if your alone or a couple traveling light to DC.

I stayed here for a convention at the hotel. The room was very comfortable - especially the bedding (the duvet and the sheets were better than a name-brand hotel that sells its bedding!); but the room also looks right into the apartment building next door, within 30 ft. The location is good (close to Metro Station. The pool area is nice but it is on a terrace overlooking Thomas Circle; so traffic noise is severe. The meeting room amenities and the food service were good; but i was annoyed that the free WiFi is available in the lobby, and in the guest rooms, but NOT in the meeting rooms?!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the pool if you can.

Stayed two nights. Well furnished, modern, quiet rooms. Turn down service at night. Room service was prompt. Great, well priced breakfast buffet. Within walking distance (5 blocks) of the White House and the Mall. Good price for the location and quality of the accommodations. Would go back.

We stayed in this hotel in DC for 3 nights in June 2013. Hotel was very clean and very well kept.
Beds were comfortable and room was a decent size (we had just come from New York City where our hotel room was tiny!) Two double beds, flat screen TV, in room safe, mini-fridge. We also liked that the tub/shower and toilet were in a separate room from the sink. This just made it easier for the rest of the group to get ready while someone was in the shower.

Our room was also very quiet. We never heard anyone in the hallways. There was outside traffic and noise but it was very minimal.

We also spent one afternoon at the pool. There were only about 4 other people at the pool at that time, so it was very enjoyable and relaxing. Pool was very clean. The only disappointment was there is no hot tub.

This hotel is located approximately 1 mile from the White House and National Mall. If you don't mind the walk, it's very doable. But, don't think that you are "right across the street" from the historic sites. The National Mall is still very large and a lot to walk around in itself. We choose to drive and park near the National Mall and then walk around the monuments/memorials.

Our only issue during our stay was that we had problems getting in and out of the parking garage. Upon check-in at the hotel, we had told the front desk we would be utilizing self park. Therefore, we should have been able to use our room key to swipe in and out of the parking garage (prompting the daily $25 parking charge to our room). Apparently there were problems with the self park machines because they never worked. Each time we attempted to leave the parking garage, one of the valet staff members or a manager had to come over and swipe us out. It was only a minor inconvenience.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a pool view. This will not only give you a view of the pool area but also of the...

Just held a professional gathering at the bar. It is large, quiet and had good service and nice food. That was my experience last year as well. The outdoor pool is one of the nicest in DC area, large and pretty, good for a swimmer like me or for kids. Saw the rooms. Not huge, true, but recently renovated and up to date. This hotel is much closer to the White House and Mall than most of the others, and most of the others that are close by are very expensive. I live here and I know them all. I will be recommending this to my friends.

Room Tip: Personally would like to face the pool but the other views would be fine too.

The hotel is about 4 blocks from the Mc Pherson Metro station so it's very convenient. Also it's on the 14th Street Restaurant and theater area so you can walk to some of the best restaurants in the city. The room had a nice size. It was very clean. The beds were very comfortable. Wi-Fi worked perfectly. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here because it was a relatively good price and relatively close to the things we wanted to see. It was okay - the room was a little small, the internet had issues from time to time, the fan didn't work in the bathroom, etc., but none of the items were "big" items. The staff was nice indeed. We only ate in the bar area restaurant, but I was pleasantly surprised with it. Good food indeed. The parking under the hotel is very tight, so I was glad we had rented a Ford Escape. Driving my 3/4 ton truck or Suburban would have made for a very frustrated parking situation. But, when you consider many of the hotels do not have their own parking, again, this was not a big deal.
