We were here only overnight for the #summersixteen concert. We were in a great area, walking distance to verizon center and all the shops by 11th and 12th street. Very quiet and posh! no complaints about the room, besides calling for an iron which was there less than 5 minutes. Great helpful staff! Their bath products are through bath and... More

I accompanied my daughter on a business trip to DC. Because this hotel had such good reviews, she decided to book a room here. We were not disappointed! The hotel is beautiful, extremely clean, and has a courteous staff. I was relieved that there's valet parking. We stayed in the older, renovated section of the hotel. The price is great... More

Tea and coffee in the room is a prerequisite for me and do I checked in advance - could I get coffee at 5am? Yes, I was told. The truth was different. Why not an ordinary kettle in the room? Transatlantic travellers might need caffeine at strange times- I certainly did. But I had to wait until 7. Having said... More

Keith, Thank you for taking the time to write this - I'm glad that even with the miscommunication regarding our coffee services you were still able to enjoy the upgraded and spacious rooms. We do have coffee available before 7am and we will work with the staff to learn to better articulate to guests what their options are. Thank you... More

I choose this based on previous reviews and location. This was a great choice. The customer service was on point. The location wonderful. Its like 20-30 min walk to the mall due to the many stops you have to make at the lights for crossing...don't cross the streets until the walk light is lite cuz you could get swiped by... More

JulieP1980, Many thanks for your review and good tip for pedestrians walking in our city - always wait for the crosswalk sign. As you mentioned, we only have rooms with one bed, either a queen or king. About half of our rooms are shower only and the other half are tubs/shower combos. I hope it wasn't an issue for you...

I wasn't sure what to expect when I booked, but was pleasantly surprised when I arrived. They have valet service and parking for guest out front, the staff is helpful and friendly.

Lots of old charm still left with a modern twist. Staff is wonderful! Beds and pillows are best ever! Parking is expensive but with free and very inexpensive transit around town, there's no need to worry about getting in your car until time to go. I could go on and on about how great this hotel really is! We will... More

These small but adequate rooms are convenient to the heart of DC but have one summer flaw. Guests can have drinks in the courtyard on summer evenings until 11.00pm and if it is a noisy group the sound carries even to the 6th floor. We had problems all three nights we were there.
