The room was OK.. perhaps a bit dated, and art deco is not my thing, but we chose this place because of the convenience of a kitchenette -- were able to have dinner in one night (which we enjoyed), even though only one of the two electric burners worked and the small kitchen was a challenge to use. Still having a fridge in which to stock juice, yogurt, sandwich fixings, etc. made it easy to make the 5 day stay a bit more economical. Bed was super comfortable and I liked having the vanity area for getting dressed... almost a home away from home.
But the best part of the place was the very friendly and attentive staff. When we had to haul stuff to the car and it was raining, we were lent one umbrella and accompanied with a second that was gallantly held over me.
The neighborhood is convenient to the metro and has a lot of places to eat... It is the equivalent of San Francisco's Castro district. One thing I did notice several times that was nasty: a lot of RATS running around the streets. But. that's a comment on the city, not the hotel. The hotel, while a bit dated, was clean and, Id say, a good value.
