My wife and I just stayed here for two nights this past weekend. The location is great in the heart of the embassy area and a short walk to Dupont Circle and P Street. Plenty of interesting restaurants within a very short distance and the hotel is right across the street from the Phillips Collection. The hotel itself is very nicely appointed and I am told was once a Ritz Carlton. The lobby is tiny. Off the lobby is a wonderful bar with lots of seating, a fireplace and is a great place to have drinks. The restaurant, 2100 Prime, is quiet and classic. The breakfast we enjoyed there was great with very professional and welcoming service.
Our room, 414, was disappointingly small, though nicely furnished. It would be more appropriate for a single guest rather than for 2. The bathroom was tiny and had virtually no storage space for toiletries. The king bed was comfortable but took up nearly all of the room. However, we did get a good rate of $154.00 from the hotel's website so it was still a reasonable value. The room doors to the hall slam very loudly and one can easily be wakened by it, as I was. Also, the bright lights from the hallway spill around the door frame making it impossible to get the room dark enough. These are issues the hotel ought to deal with.
We found the staff to be professional, especially the concierges, who assisted us with meal reservations and steered us right both times - to Circa for dinner and Kramerbooks for brunch.
We found the staff to be very friendly. We would return here for many reasons, but would request a larger room.
