I work for a county agency and was booked into this location to attend a nearby training. The location is right downtown, a few blocks from the convention center. The blocks in between on J St. are pretty dismal with lots of vacant store fronts. K St. is a better walk. The hotel itself is vey nice, clean and well-appointed. Valet was convenient without much wait. The only reason I did not give this hotel a '5', it that the room was a bit small. Loved the decor, political theme and lighting. Bed was super comfy, nice linens, very clean room. Also, the room(11th floor) was very quiet, little street noise or any sound from outside the room, adjoining, hall, etc. Room service breakfast was just ok but cocktails downstairs were yummy! I would stay there again, especially at $115/night.
