I usually avoid hotels in favor of timeshares so I was pleasantly surprised here. A preliminary call indicated this is a "Dog Friendly" hotel we decided to let our jack Russell test it out. From the moment we approached the lobby where Lucy discovered a huge bowl of fresh water until we exited the ever ready and speedy elevators and found our room we were pleased. Lucy received a complimentary "doggie bag" with useful items like a huge milk-bone and poo bags and sitting service information. While we heard a few pooches bark hello to Lucy as we walked the halls, most were quite and no one complained when Lucy was startled early in the morning by a slamming door and warned everyone to stop walking around a go back to sleep.
The evening wines were great and staff were cheerful and quite helpful at every turn.
The location is excellent with many fine restaurants within a short walk if one tired of the on site restaurant.
Given the various languages i heard spoken by patrons, I would venture a guess that we are not the first to discover this boutique hotel in a great location with trolley cars stopping both sides of the street for a quick connection to the Metro for an easy commute to the nation's capitol or Arlington cemetery.
