It's been a year since we were there (4/2011), but it left a lasting impression. First of all we stayed there through a timeshare promotion. So I can't comment on the value of room rate per se. But if it's in your price range, it's worth every penny.
It is absolutely the grandest hotel I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. Lobby is a wonderful area to lounge. The Manager complimentary wine & cocktail hour with snacks is a fantastic treat each afternoon in the lobby. Adjacent bar offered amazing/creative drinks.
Room was very impressive. Besides the super comfy bed, we enjoyed the animal print robes, extended shower curtain bar, and shaving mirror. All 3 of which we have added to our home because of enjoying there. Simple things in life make a difference.
If you love dogs, they are welcome. Fitting since Old Town loves them too. Ideal location. We parked around the corner & left our car there walking everywhere we wanted to visit. (out of state visitors can obtain 24 hour parking passes from the visitor center close by!) There are many wonderful restaurants all around. We enjoyed many of them. Outdoor Farmer's Market is across the street as well.
We walked (should have driven) all the way up to the public trans to easily get in and out of DC. Next time we'll be prepared with a bus schedule since the day of walking took it's toll alone while in DC.
