Located conveniently to Metro and in the middle of a rapidly developing neighborhood, the hotel provides a peaceful respite. Spacious room. Comfortable bed. The only weird thing was the elevators to the tower I stayed in was hidden by a staircase.

Dear Bcheong, Thank you for taking the time to write an extensive review about your recent stay at our hotel. I certainly understand your frustration that your first room was not up to your standard and that you experienced a noisy neighbor while in that room. I truly apologize that the cleanliness was not what you would expect and that...

Since before we arrived, I knew the service was great because I was in charge of the logistics for a group of 40 people. The rooms are comfortable and the location is wonderful and it has been renovated recently, so the decoration is reaaly nice. It´s great for families, couples and business. The lobby has a great atmosphere at night....

Recently stayed at this hotel after contracting it for a large group sight unseen and based upon others recommendations. The hotel exceeded my expectations in several areas with only a few disappointments. Checked in early and the front desk was more than helpful in getting me into my selected room type early after a long morning of travel. The room...

I enjoyed my stay in this hotel, my room (16th floor) had been recently been refurbished in a nice manner, and unlike a lot of US hotels the lodging area felt light and inviting. Staff were attentive and helpful. The only downside was that the wifi was hopeless much of the time.

I was here for a conference and the hotel is right beside the Walter E Washington Convention Center and about a 10 min walk from the verizon center. The area is very easy to walk around. The hotel lobby is large, loud and busy, it wasn't my favorite part of the hotel. The rooms are spacious and updated with Federal...

Great location, walk everywhere. Great facilities, sports bar, Starbucks, and the best gym. Rooms were spacious and modern, and have the best bed I have ever slept on. The staff were great too. Laundry was expensive, but there is Toms Laundry 200m up the road. Highly recommended.

The check-in experience all the way to the end of the trip was fantastic. It is located in such a convenient place as well as a safe place. The staff was great and the beds are comfortable. Not my favorite pillows, but it's ok because I had my own. It also has the best fitness center that I have ever...

I would recommend this hotel to anyone, the valet staff is sweet as can be, the hotel is magnificent, and the bar is scrumptious. The room we stayed in was so modern which is my style, everything was we'll updated and kept up with. All this being said I would go back again and again, except for the fact that...
