If you like boutique hotels, you'll like this place. If you don't like boutique hotels, you'll hate it. I liked the room. I thought it was cool. The bed adjusts to a semi couch setting. Big honking flat screen TV which is almost too big for the room. I was alone so the bathroom only being separated by frosted glass wasn't an issue. If I was with someone, that would have been an issue. If you want privacy in the restroom you won't get it here. Also if you want a tub, you're going to have to ask if they have one. I was with a group and all rooms were showers. Annoying things with this place: 1. No coffee makers in the room. There is a coffee stand in the hallway with 3 varieties of coffee, if they're filled. Last two days dark roast was out. Also hoard the cups. One morning there were no cups. 2. LIGHTS - If you're accustom to turning on a light with a switch that rule does not apply here. There is a panel that adjusts the light colors, not levels, colors. There are lights around the TV, the mirror, the open closet. It's OK once you get the hang of it, but I could see this driving people crazy. 3. They have a kicking rooftop bar with a great view of the capitol that closes at 8:00! We went up there at 7:45 on a nice summer night and were told "We're closing. We can serve you drinks but you have to down them." 3 glasses of wine at a $42.00 tab, you shouldn't have to "down" anything. I don't know what the issue is but most places in this area, the few that exist, close at 8:00. 4. Limited Restaurants. There's one in the hotel which is at DC prices, when it's open. Two other hotels near by, again DC prices. There is an Irish Pub around the corner, reasonable prices, (doesn't close at 8:00), OK food but you can't eat there every night. Union Station is within walking distance but the food court there is flat out depressing. It has a New York 1970s feel to it. There is an Uno's there with absolutely horrible service, which also closes at 8:00. For all it's quirks the hotel itself I thought was nice. Much better than a lot of places I've stayed. It's just not near anything, especially the convention center. It's Uber or long long walks if you want to go anywhere in DC.…
I stayed here for five days for a conference at the convention center. This is quite far from the convention center. The location all around is pretty awful. There is nothing really around. Just office buildings. If you are looking for restaurants, shopping, night life, do not stay here. There is nothing nearby. The rooms were decent. The staff, awful. They really do not care and seem to have no idea what they are doing. I saw a lot of very frustrated folks at the reception area. Restaurant and bar were decent when they are open. Inexplicably, they are closed on Sundays and Mondays, so if we want food or drinks, and not go far you have to go to the Hyatt across the street which is very pricey. Overall very disappointing.
Room was spacious and clean. Good air conditioning system, nice to come back to a cool room after walking in the heat. Toilet and shower are behind frosted glass which some people may have an issue with, but it was fine. Staff are friendly and helpful. Onsite restaurant had tasty food, and there were vending machines for grab and go options. Great location, short walk to the capitol.
Cold and unhelpful staff at both check in and check out. at check in the credit card registration system for payment did not work. we provided 3 fully functional credit cards and it seemed to have worked. after two days we arrive at the door of our room and it no longer opens ... we went down to the lobby to ask for information and we were told that they had blocked the door because they had not been able to register a credit card for payment. We were escorted to our room by two security guards to take our cards again, which obviously worked and in fact the payment was immediately possible. Due to your system problem we were treated like two thieves and no one cleaned our room for the third day: no apology, no discount ... inadequate and rude staff! Also, the room is really cramped, there is no privacy in the bathroom, the area is noisy, coffee glasses were always missing from the shared machines, the pool and rooftop have uncomfortable hours.…
Great experience, rooms impeccable, staff had too notch customer service. The technology was neat but confusing for me. I did love the water and ice machine with cups in hallway, and the location cannot be beat.
The hotel was nice enough. Clean rooms with lots of USB ports for device charging. Bathroom doesn’t provide a lot of privacy and the water pressure wasn’t great, but it wasn’t a big deal. That being said, the staff was AMAZING. Everyone we dealt with was top notch and friendly. We had a pretty big issue in our room, and Jerome at the front desk took care of us immediately and was so helpful and understanding. The restaurant staff was great, as well as housekeeping. The location and proximity to Union Station and a DC Circulator stop was so helpful. But again, it was the staff that made our stay much more comfortable than it could have been. Thanks to all!
stayed here for 3 nights and satisfied to all the things except weak water pressure. location, staff's kindness, facilities, amenities, cleaness was good. the room was also cozy.ah it was not easy to access any convenience store near the place although there was a vending machine in the lobby.
Excellent room, large, wide, and electric beds, the service of the reception staff was excellent, and helped with any question, coffee on each floor is very convenient, the location is fantastic, especially for tourists who come to the Capitol area and the Mall Avenue, highly recommended
I stayed at Yotel for two nights over the weekend and enjoyed my stay. I was nervous before checking in because the day before, there was an accident where a car crashed into the lobby. But the next day, you couldn’t tell anything had happened. The only issue was the self-check-in machines were not working, so there was long line for check-in. But overall, it’s a nice hotel and would stay there again.
Good stay st Yotel - would go to another Yotel property. Very good location for sightseeing but not much to do after dark in this location. You literally can see the Capitol from the front entrance of the hotel. The rooftop pool is great - didn't see too many hotels with a pool. Room was clean, staff was nice. Saw reviews about the room being small - we got a deluxe king from Groupon and it actually seemed spacious. We kept the bed down the whole trip. Biggest downside is DC has some cool neighborhoods - takes a little extra energy to go to them after a day of sightseeing and the metro is everywhere so a location in a fun neighborhood and a zip to a metro stop will be what we do in the future.
