“Location and Comfort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

We travel to DC alot and love this hotel. The location is within walking distance of the White House and attractions. We can relax after our long drive, with valet parking. The accomodations are spacious and comfortable, and the lounge is a great spot to regroup. The free breakfast is a bonus with eggs, bacon, cereal, fresh belgium waffles, pastries, yougurt and fresh coffee.

The free serve-yourself breakfast was my favourite feature; good scrambled eggs, crispy bacon or sausages, waffles, cereals toast and good quality fresh oranges, bananas and apples, all available in a well-maintained and pleasant setting. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The room (311) was pretty small but satisfactory since we spent very little time there. There was only room for one desk chair. It's a great location about 20 minute walk to White House, 10 minutes to Metro, and there are restaurants within a few blocks. When we booked about 2 weeks before arrival this was one of the few hotels with a reasonable price that would accept cancellations. Overall, it was very good value, and I'd be glad to return.

Very clean and quiet. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Just a few blocks from the convention center, the Verizon Center and the Metro. We'll definitely be staying here again next time we're in DC.

Lovely, newly-renovated hotel with plenty of charm. Service was great. Was able to check in early and leave my car with the valet until 6:00 the next day for one day's parking fee. Close to the White House, Mall and many other attractions. Reasonable price, too!

This was my first trip to DC since I was a kid. I did not know where to stay, and I pick a good one. I like to walk and it was close to the White House. I go to NYC a lot and the rooms here where bigger. There was more room to walk around. I loved the desk that you could roll any where. We only stayed one night, and after walking around for 4 hours we have food delivered. So we used the desk to eat on. It was our own private table by the window. They had reading lights over the bed. Since we don't read in bed, we used them for a puppet show on the wall. We are not breakfast people so now sure about breakfast. We will be back. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Really want to appreciate all staff service, excellent service and very cooperative experience. If I will get one more chance to come Washington my first preference will be comfort inn. Front desk service is too good and cooperative.

I stayed at this hotel back in early December with some friends for a weekend trip to DC. The location of the hotel was one main reason I stayed, it is only a short walk to the metro station which was perfect for us since we didn't want to drive and the metro would take us everywhere. The hotel was nice and clean. As soon as you pull up to the front, the doorman bombards you and nags you to help looking for tips which was quite uncomfortable and rude. The front desk staff was great the whole time we were there. The girl that checked us in was so polite and friendly and helped us find our way around whenever we had a question. The room I stayed in with my boyfriend was very VERY small, but OK for us since we were only staying 1 night and had little baggage. The second room my 2 friends stayed in had a ton of space and was comfortable enough for all 4 of us to hang out it. Even though our room was small, the rooms overall were clean which is most important to me. The breakfast area was nice, as long as there weren't too many people there. Once more than 8 people came down for breakfast, the counter was so congested with people trying to get food was nearly impossible. The food was OK and with all the hassle, we got breakfast elsewhere if that's any indication. Overall, this was a great hotel for a place to crash for the night and the location was perfect for our needs.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not located on the street, noise from street is so loud and never stops Corner room...

Thank you for your reply. Although you found your room to be small in size, I am glad it worked out for you and your guest. Breakfast can get congested at times and we do our best to accommodate all guests to ensure they start the morning off right with a great meal. I am sorry to hear that you decided to eat elsewhere as we look forward to seeing our guests each morning for a bite to eat and some good conversation. Thanks for staying with us and we look forward to your next visit.
