This boutique hotel has great, edgy, design, spacious, comfortable rooms, and friendly welcoming staff. It is located very close to DuPont Circle and the vibrant shopping and restaurant district on 14th Street. The hotel was a great value and offered free internet and a happy hour with free wine and snacks each evening.

It's rare that I receive the type of service that I did. William, Terrence, Yasmine, & Thomas you accommodated me beyond expectations. You all are family now which means you're welcome to the cookouts

It's near my office and I've stayed here a couple of times. The design scheme is really not me. It's very red, it's very over-the-top in a style that I identify with. That said, I identify with spacious room and great service. Having a nice bar where I can get a cocktail is a place. Add in a super-helpful staff...

Hi C-Way3, Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. I know the "red" can be a bit overwhelming for some, however I am glad that you were able to connect with some aspects of our design.

The service here was good. The man at the front desk was very helpful and gave us a bigger room upon arrival, which we initially thought was a good thing. However, when the trash service began banging on the trash cans at 7:30 AM the next morning, we realized this room was not desirable. The hotel should work out some...

Hello lfarmer2, Sorry the trash company was so noisy. From time to time we need to remind them to be to be a little more considerate and it sounds like they need a call. Unfortunately, trash services have to work very early in the morning, so as not to slow up traffic during the day and to get trash removed...

This is a nice hotel and for the price you just can't beat the service and location. The rooms are spacious and fun decor.

Hi RC1969, Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. I am glad to hear that the location was "just right" for you and that our team provided awesome service.

Stayed here for 2 nights as we traveled down the east coast. Hotel was clean and comfortable. Within semi decent walking distance to stuff. Did not eat or drink in the lounge so unfortunately cannot comment. Rooms were absolutely massive! and the bed was quite comfortable. I would happily stay here again!

I stayed here for the first time during Inauguration weekend. The staff here is very nice and helpful, and the location is quite good, although the hotel and the rooms are very small and it's very tricky to get there by taxi or ride share.

Hi Ashley, Thanks for your review. Sometimes we wonder ourselves what Monsieur L'Enfant was thinking when he laid out the street plan for DC in the 1700's - it can be confusing, but we've been here long enough now that we just memorize everything. We hope you will make a return visit to DC before the next inauguration and if...
