I stayed at this hotel recently on a weekend. It seems that the weekends are slower than weekdays, leading me to be upgraded to a suite, which I will review here.
In a word, I found this hotel to be excellent -- probably 4 1/2 stars rather than 5, but still extremely nice. The suite had a nice layout, with a nice view of Georgetown over the Potomac river. (For the Rosslyn area, the view was excellent!) The room was very quiet, and the service was excellent, with a coffee maker equipped with a decent grade of coffee and tea.
The bathroom was very large, and included both a stall shower and a jacuzzi-style tub. There are also (European style?) shower gel, shampoo, and conditioner dispensers in the shower.
The layout of the hotel is a little odd; one enters at the ground level, but the front desk, restaurant, and lounge areas are on the 4th floor. The hotel decor is interesting, sort of avant-garde dark wood, though the suite itself was brightly lit with an attractive white and grey color scheme with a modern, clean, slightly European flavor. Service was friendly and excellent.
The only down things to watch out for is that the handle of the hot water valve in the tub becomes very hot to the touch.
