We arrived at 2pm on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. Our room was
ready (4pm check in), so we used the self park at $17 a day, instead of the
$25 a day (plus tip) valet service.
Some reviewers have noted that at times self-park was not available. One could park at the 10th street Capitol Garage for $5 per day weekends and $5 per night. By contrast the Embassy Suites charges $25 a day to park, and $6 per hour to
valet park. On street parking is $1.25 per hour 8am-6pm Mon-Sat with a 1 or 2 hour limit and very scarce.
We found all 150+ self-park spaces on the lower four levels of the parking
garage were filled, although many of the 100+ valet only spots on the lower
levels were vacant, but not available to us. On the fifth level, we were
able to find a spot, but the parking spaces were tight, even for our small
Civic sedan. Later we went out in the car that evening, and
came back late at night to fit into an even tighter "compact" spot -it was
so tight that my wife had to get out first, before parking. If you have a
choice, bring your small car to park, and expect new door dings .
We stayed in room 720 during Memorial Day Weekend May 26-28.
The room was huge. It had a king sized bed, but could have fit two full
sized beds if needed. Two glass covered night stands, each with lamps on
both sides of the bed. A chaise lounge with a standing lamp, and the usual
5 wheeled leather desk chair next to a desk with still another lamp. A 44"
flat screen HD TV for watching all the ESPN channels. Sliding glass window (it slides 2") with a view of the Capitol and Capitol Park, but no balcony.
There is the usual infamous mini bar refrigerator ($4 for a 12 ounce soda,
$9 for 4.5 ounces of cashews), but no refrigerator, nor microwave for our
own food. I guess if you can afford the $169 room (the lowest online price
available on this Memorial Day weekend) they don't expect you to need a
refrigerator or microwave. There is a small shop on the first floor where you can get snacks -only $3 for the 20 ounce soda, and open until 11pm. Walk 2 short blocks to J street, and you can get a 12 ounce soda for $1. The price of convenience
The place was immaculately clean- even the toilet seat and the insides of the toilet bowl
shined! Only two high quality bath towels, but the used towels were
replaced daily. Ultra modern state of the art, low water usage, high flush
toilet. No bathroom vent, but the bathroom and shower were spacious enough that they didn't need a vent. Individual packaged shampoo, soap, head cap for showering, and even toothpaste provided. You can ask for a newspaper to be placed at your door.
We were far from the elevators and far from the ice room, and never heard
our neighbors except when I was in the bathroom, when the neighbors ran a
shower. Very good noise insulation, even when we turned off the noisey A/C
and heater. The sound of even closing the front door was muffled. And we heard no noise through the locked attached door to the neighbors. Remember this was a fully booked hotel.
I had a good night sleep both nights, although the bed sagged in the
middle. And the digital readouts of the clock were not luminescent at night.
They had a $20 per person breakfast buffet, which we passed. We walked through the garage to eat a $7.50 breakfast at Magnolia at 1200 k street. We also skipped the in house restaurant. Lunch or dinner at Frank Fat's 800 L street, or Ma Jong 1400 L street.
Good sized pool for wading and even lap swimming -no diving as only 5' deep. Also a hot tub. They had misters on the sunny side of the pool to keep people cool. Immaculate landscaping on the grounds, including bushes cut into figurines shapes.
Exemplary customer relations. The maid and the parking attendant smiled and greeted us on our way out, and thanked us for staying at the hotel. They allowed us to park after the noon checkout time, until 4pm Monday, when the parking garage was about a quarter full. We will be back.
