Top rank hotel, lovely room, we were even upgraded. Very comfortable bed, pillows, beautiful bathroom with tasteful shower enclosure as well as bath, and loads of toiletries. Terrific staff. So what caused me to withhold that 5th star? The internet was not great, dropping out a lot, and the air con never went as low as advertised. It was cool,... More

They sent him macrons, gave him free dessert at the restaurant and made sure we had everything we needed in our room to make us feel great! The room/bathroom were lovely. Lanvin shower products, great bed-sheet (which I needed up buying... More

This is a perfect location, just a few blocks from the White House, walk to restaurancts and to the Washington Monument. We had a junior suite, which was very upscale. We were only there 1 night, but were very happy with the stay.
