We had an 11th floor room nice view, very clean it is over 100 years old and does not really look it age the historic time line really... More

The location is very convenient and the rates are low. But compared to the worn down state of the premises and the below no-frills standard of the rooms this feels like a rip-off. My room was extremely cold, but only a "global" setting so it was either blocking off the AC outlet or get a blanket. No way to get... More

I checked in and tried to spend the night. The "suite" was a tiny garret that seems to have been last updated in the 1960s. The air conditioning, controlled by an ancient dial literally stapled to the wall, stopped working about 9 pm. The Wi-Fi disconnected every few minutes, making work frustrating and Netflix impossible. The walls were so thin... More

Decent hotel with large rooms. Building is old and rooms old. Still has the old CRT TV with only few channels, but who cares , it is conveniently close to everything. I was expecting a room with 2 beds, got one with 3.

It's a historic building,so rooms reflect that architecture, however, it is clean and in one of the best locations in DC. The staff is very attentive. Discounted parking 1 block away. Great hangout restaurant and bar on the streetside.

I come to DC on business 2-3 times a year and always stay here. It is a no frills, antiquated, quirky hotel. You will park 2 blocks away. The heat and AC can be balky on occasion. Oh, and the wifi can be spotty. HOWEVER; everything in downtown DC is at your fingertips. All major attractions are within walking distance.... More

This hotel is a good value given its location in downtown DC. Bear in mind though that it is 102 years old which is part of its charm, but also... Skip the breakfast. Go across the street to Peets if you want quick breakfast eats. The hotel's list of places to eat was helpful. We liked Clyde's and Cuba Libre... More

A cheap and cheerful place in a great location. Very basic rooms but all with air con and free wifi. Not very impressed at first with sticking room doors and very strange shallow wardrobe which was little more than half a dozen coat hooks with doors in front. Having said that I found the place "growing on me" through the... More
