Nice comfortable hotel. Concierge lounge was very nice. Within 30 minutes walk from the national mall and other major attractions. However, even though the staff was accommodating they were not the usual bubbly smiling staff I am accustomed to seeing at a Marriott property.

“Good hotel, price and location, the overall experience was average” The location was great. I loved being able to get a cab or walk to City Center. The hotel was well cared for. However, there was noting there that made me want to spend time in the lobby or their restaurant.

I stayed 2 nights for a conference nearby. I requested an upper floor room and was on the 12th floor in a quiet and comfortable room facing the library with plenty of space. Based on reading other reviews, rooms must vary significantly. Good location--bit of a hike to the National Mall but safe and interesting walk. City Center restaurants and... More

Great hotel in the middle of downtown and close to the Convention Center. Within walking distance of the National Mall ( about 1 mile) and several restaurants. Walgreens and a metro station are within a 5 minute walk from the hotel. The hidden gem that we found was the TG CIGAR LOUNGE with a beautiful patio and a huge selection... More

We did not realize how conveniently located this hotel would be for all our needs. The fact that there were so many awesome restaurants right around the hotel was great. Then we needed something for my husband only to discover a Macy's within walking distance!! Metro stop right around the corner and the White House a 10 minute walk away!!

I really did not enjoy my stay here. The hotel is not well laid out - There are far too many choke points in the lobby and its loud. The first person that attempted to check me in was extremely rude and unhelpful - I went and sat by myself for a little while and was checked in by a... More

This hotel is in a busy part of NW Washington DC. Walking distance to many attractions, restaurants and offices. Staff is nice and the hotel has nice amenities. There is an Aura Fitness Spa at the hotel with great equipment, a lap pool (nothing too big unfortunately), steam and sauna. There are meeting rooms, sitting areas and the rooms are... More

Let's me first say the night staff are incredible. Not that the day shift isn't, but we didn't talk that much . I was tired, jet lagged, and hey made the process of checkin so fast friendly and efficient I was blown away. The room however was outdated in my opinion, especially the tubs. Maybe the price is average for... More

This place is located in a great place. China Town is right there along with other things to see. The staff was friendly. It was nice to see that there was a computer dedicated to print boarding passes right in the lobby. The room appeared to have been remodeled some years ago, but wasn't dated as of yet. There was...
