Stayed at this hotel b/c it was way too expensive to stay in DC during my pleasure trip to see the sights in March 2011.
I. HOTEL: The hotel was great! The lobby is huge with nice seating areas and a good bar. The rooms were spacious, clean, modern, and very comfortable. The entire hotel for that matter was very well maintained. Checked in and out with easy. Staff was friendly and helpful. Indoor pool was like an oasis. Underneath the hotel is a train station, which is your key getting in and out of DC to visit all the sites. There are also some retail stores in the station along with a number of places to grab a bit to eat. The subway system in DC is extremely easy to use and inexpensive. Parking at the hotel was costly, which was the only downside.
II. AREA: Hotel is located in a residential/commercial area. There are a number of restaurants in walking distance and others a short drive away. Overall, the area itself was quiet.
III. SYNOPSIS: Great place to stay when visiting DC. Easy to get around due to the train station right below the hotel. I highly recommend this hotel. It was worth the cost & would plan to stay here again in the future.
