The hotel is located reasonably close to the Senate and because of the sheer distances is much further away from the House; the distance to the Capital is irrelevant for this review since politics rarely ever takes place in the capital building. The food is very good especially the fine breakfast buffet of which you can choose either a cold or hot with the hot being more costly at approx. $17. The lobby and bar are both especially comfortable and have a very relaxed disposition, very easy to nod off for a nap while waiting for your next business appointment trip to the House or Senate. The Desk, Bell Desk, Doorman and Housekeeping are all very, very helpful and friendly and willing to help you with any challenge, I wish I could remember all their names and list them here. This is not a tourist hotel because of the cost and location, but it is great for business folks. Also be aware of a room on the New Jersey side, you may have a little better view of the town, but it is very noisy because of the fire dept. and the Billy Goat Bar across the street (loud drunks leaving the joint)! The Dubliner, just around the corner, has been there for many, many years and will not disappoint. The Irish bar next to it is only for "drinking" so stay away unless you are a dedicated drinker. Other places I Liked were the Monocle just down the hill and across a parking lot from the Dirksen Senate Building, Charlie Palmers nearby and the various cafes of Union Station (many are fast food, some sit down and it's the location not the quality of food). Union Station is being renovated once again, seems DC can't resist leaving this building alone and I don't know that it will add to the quality of the visit, just more commerce. I noticed Union Station and its surroundings are very dirty and sure could stand a good deep steam clean and it would be money well spent!
