You get what you pay for. The room was very small. BUT CLEAN. The rooms are not very private. You can clearly hear what is happing in adjoinng rooms. The first night we were there they had a band practising. It was the floor below us and to the side. We could here every note as they repeated the riffs,... More

Had read so many mixed reviews on this hotel and was unsure of what to expect, so here is our opinion, the hotel is in a great location and it is very easy to get anywhere from here, so full marks here, the bar is cool with a great variety of beers, and is very popular. Food, no comment as... More

I booked this hotel on Hotwire and feel completely swindled. No way is this a 3 star hotel. We had to switch from the first room bc of the gross rug and stench - and the only upside to the 2nd was a faux wood floor. The staff is awful and the only reason I didn't go off on them... More

It's an unassuming place about 5min walk from DuPont Circle. There are two sets of 5 walk-up steps, one outside and one inside - no wheelchair access noted. The elevator is a tiny old-fashioned one, with double doors to open, and they snap back fast catching heavy bags, if you have them. The room was a good size (a triple)... More

I was in line in Starbucks for my coffee when I heard the faint noise of a fire engine. My turn came and I ordered. Meanwhile, the noise got nearer and shriller. I took my coffee and stepped out of Starbucks and saw the fire engine turning right at next block. I walked lazily sipping my mocha enjoying the onset... More

This hotel is an average place to stay - especially great if you are planning busy days in the city and just need a place to sleep. The hotel staff were courteous. The room and building itself were aging, yet relatively clean. The room was small and bathroom average in size. We stayed in a room away from the bar... More

Clean and in a good location, but our room looked out onto walls through both windows, the extractor was incredibly noisy and the breakfast truly awful. The bar was great with friendly staff and brilliant beers. It's a two plus-star at best.

This is a perfectly average hotel with great access in DuPont Circle. It is neither particularly bad nor particularly good, it is relatively clean, the rooms are spacious, it's accessible, and it's a good deal if all the bigger hotels are booked/prohibitively expensive. This wouldn't be my top choice for a place to stay in DC, but I wouldn't mind... More

Worst hotel I ever stayed at. First off, they put me in the wrong room, then told me that my room was available only to not move me and keep me in the wrong room. Filters in the air-conditioning need to be change. My son and I got horrible allergies every time we stepped foot in the room. Bar is... More

I will definitely stay here again. Price was great for the locale, and plenty of eateries nearby. My favorite thing about it was being able to walk the neighborhoods around Dupont Circle, with all the embassies and townhomes. Beautiful architecture everywhere you look. Loved the old lift. Only thing I would do differently would be to ask for a room... More
