My daughter and I stayed at this Hyatt for three nights December 27- 30th. We booked a special AAA rate that included a full breakfast at the Daily Grill.
The service at this hotel was TOP NOTCH. Although there were some snafus on check-in, the day manager, Malia, was quick to remedy them-- even with upgrades. She was a class act. She knew my name within an hour of our being there. The soda machine gave us a regular instead of diet Pepsi-- the Night manager, Amy, had replacement drinks to our room within 10 minutes.
The hotel itself resembles the classic Embassy Suites open design. The pool and fitness room are on the top floor and looked very nice. We did not use them. The room was a bit dated, but FINE. Everything worked and there were no omissions. We overlooked the Metro Plaza. Request the view -- we were on the 10th floor and it was very nice. Amenities included two types of soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion and toothpaste. (nice touch.)
The reason I took a point off from cleanliness? The same wine glass that was on a table when we left for a day of sightseeing was still there when we returned that night. The room, however, was as clean as one would expect from any nice hotel.
The location is STUPENDOUS. At the end of a day of sightseeing it is nice knowing that you do not have to walk from the Metro blocks to a hotel. (I also have stayed at the Club Quarters at Farragut Sq and LOVE that convenience.) Parking (without in and out privileges) is only $10/ day-- a bargain even if you choose to stay somewhere else. ($15 with in and out) Since the parking lot is on the metro, you could use it if you are staying at any of the downtown hotels which charge $30+ for parking.
The hotel is within walking distance of 180 restaurants. AMAZING. We will definitely checks rates to stay here again on our next trip to DC.
