We stayed at this hotel for 4 days during one of the hottest weeks this spring - temps reached 90 degrees. As other reviewers indicated, this is an older property and is going to have its problems. The AC went out one night but was fixed by the next day. Without asking, we were refunded 1/2 the night's room rate. Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was just OK. However, the front desk staff were very helpful in guiding us on where to go shopping and eat. The (free) hotel shuttle was available for almost anywhere we wanted to be taken, which was convenient for the Metro and King Street. Since the high temps were unexpected and we packed for colder weather, one of the drivers offered to take us to a clothing store to get some cooler shirts. Note: If driving in from the South on Washington St., make sure you stay in the far right lane and bear right into the HOV lane when it splits or you won't be able to (legally) turn into the hotel parking lot from Washington. We passed it the 1st time and ended up lost in downtown DC.
