This hotel still channels its former lif as a Ritz. The furnishings are very traditional and our room (2 double beds, NOT 2 queen beds) was cozy. I haven't seen a double bed in ages! Lovely linens, towels, and toiletries. I was surprised that wifi internet was not free, even for Starwood Preferred members. We paid for wifi, then found that only one device could use it (if my husband used it with his laptop, I couldn't use it with my I-Pad.) That made the experience feel a little dated. The staff was very friendly and helpful; the concierge was great with resto suggestions.
The location is great--just steps from the Dupont Circle Metro station, which makes getting around DC so easy. The Phillips Collection is a few blocks away. There are many restaurants--casual, formal, al fresco within easy walking distance. the concierge had good suggestions and let us know the best time to go without long waits (many don't take reservations.) Easy to walk to embassies, also.
