A well-designed and well-managed hotel with conference facilities and close to the National Institutes of Health. It must be one of the best hotels in this area, certainly the best of three that I have stayed in. The building is spacious, with high ceilings and large public spaces. Everything works: the lifts are prompt, the wi-fi is fast and is free in the large lobby area and restaurant, the service is excellent and done cheerfully. A helpful touch is the supply of electric sockets by the side of chairs in the lobby by the elevators and along a large table. The restaurant is large but comfortable, and serves a good breakfast; the dinner is a bit expensive and rather average. The location is excellent, being about 200 metres from the Red Line metro station White Flint. Although the hotel is quite close to Rockville Pike, a very busy road, the traffic noise doesn't penetrate. The bedrooms (standard) are lovely, spacious, comfortable beds, quiet and tastfully decorated and furnished. In particular, the art is really nice, as it is throughout the hotel - a lot of care has gone into the selection. Altogether, a hotel above its classification in my view and warmly recommended.
