I loved this hotel. It is small, quaint and the employees are friendly and helpful. When we checked in the front desk explained how to navigate the Metro. You can walk an easy 2 blocks to get on the Metro from this hotel. The rooms are older but extremely clean. The door to our hotel opened onto a courtyard that was very peaceful. Breakfast each morning was delicious. I would highly recommend this for anyone traveling. We were there to see the D.C. area with our teenage boys and this was a perfect spot - no pool, but you are so busy as a tourist that there wouldn't have been time for swimming anyway!
