Spent one night in this property, a couple of weeks ago, and came away with positive impressions. As a Starwood Platinum, got an upgrade to a nice suite. The lay-out is a bit odd, in that it's too fairly small rooms divided by a closet/hallway are. But still, overall a nice room/upgrade.
While the immediate area is kind of dead (though safe), it's a 10-minute walk over a bridge to Georgetown and right near a Metro stop.
Good, friendly service throughout, including at the front desk. Room service was prompt and pleasantly jovial. The squash (I think??) soup and the salmon dish I ordered were not particularly tasty, but ok.
One glitch with the tv was that it worked only intermittently, with frequent messages about no satellite signal available, in both the evening and the morning I was there. I emailed the hotel about it afterward, and received a prompt response with a promise of 2,000 Starwood points to be deposited in my account. This seemed reasonable.
Bottom line: I'd go back.
