. . . very well done . . . until you get to the bathroom. Everything looked freshly very well done but they chose just put white caulk over the old moldy caulk. Ruined the whole effort. Other than that a great room at a great price at a great location. And they had free under ground parking which was unusual for the surrounding hotels. Within walking distance of Georgetown, the Marine Corp monument and even the Lincoln monument and the Mall if you had good walking shoes. Short order cafe on 1st floor and upscale restaurant on the top floor. McDonalds a block and a half away. We needed to stay in this immediate area and this was the best choice that we found and we would stay there again.
We missed not having the in-room coffee the first night but then found the pot and all the supplies put away in a cabinet. That was a little strange.
Don't let my comments on the bathroom turn you away. I am in the building/remodeling business and was just critical of what could have been a very well executed rehabilitation of an older property.
