Brand new hotel with a view of the Potomac and the capital dome. Across the street is a bike trail that can take you to the capital and the hotel has bikes to rent on the property. The interior of the hotel ROCKS! It is very chic, hip, fun with great modern design throughout. I was on a Club Level floor and everything was in the room was excellent shape. While it is true this hotel is not surrounded by restaurants--it is the only thing you can reasonably complain about. The hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful. I stayed two nights, I was leading a 2-day training event and the banquet staff were all very helpful and responsive.
