Hotel's Favorite
Hotel Zena is a sleek, artsy hotel located conveniently for DC day trips. Extremely comfortable bed and lovely shower with hand held & rain type shower heads. But the best thing this place has going is the staff. They are so very friendly and efficient, each and every one we came in contact with. Special call out to the valet, Geti, who kept our car clean and ready when needed. He sweetly welcomed us & our dog, always opening the door for us to pass thru. You won’t be disappointed here!

Extremely friendly and accomodating Staff. The room although very clean, was soooooo small.....literally had to shimmy between the wall and the bed to lay down in the bed. The view was aweful. There was no hairdryer or iron. Bring your own soaps unless you like sharing with strangers.

Everyone was so pleasant. Valet service was always on time for us, Million (I believe) was the sweetest thoughtful helpful person. Everyone of the staff went above and beyond to be respectful polite and helpful during our stay. Everything was great. Minus the pillows. Lol but we overlooked that, because we had all we needed! And we were in and out a lot visiting the city. Next time I’ll pack my pillow and then 10/10 recommend!
