“Not bad for a business trip stay, would recommend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Good: Great breakfast (omlet bar), fun happy hour if you feel like staying in and clean rooms. I've never had any issues with customer service at this DoubleTree and overall enjoy my stays when visiting DC.

Bad: Gym lacks major luster. AC/Heat constantly stays on. Normally you can hit head at 69 degrees and when it gets to 69 it clicks on. This hotel doesn't give you an option for AC or Heat so if you put 69 degrees the heat goes on then the air all night on. They desperately need to fix this. Other than that; good hotel.

Thank you for your reviewing our hotel during your April visit. I’m happy you got to experience our breakfast buffet with omelet’s made to order and our lounge area in 15RIA. Our proud team is always anxious to take care of guests needs.

I am sorry you had experienced some issues with the HVAC unit. We will investigate with our engineering team. I understand your dilemma.

We hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay and hope to see you again soon.

Kind Regards,

We enjoyed staying at this Double Tree hotel at the end of April. The entire staff was cordial and helpful. The room was nicely furnished. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. The bathroom, while very new and clean, was quite small, but very nice with new, fluffy towels. The buffet breakfast was very good, and a good value when included in the price of the room. There is a nice fitness room. Close to the McPherson metro stop and a 7-11 and a Whole Foods. We hope to be back!

Thank you for your reviewing our hotel during your April visit. I am pleased you had such an enjoyable stay and recognized our cordial team, warm breakfast and clean rooms with comfy beds. Our convenient location makes for a good walk to most local attractions but is also located not far from the Metro line for further trips.

I hope you enjoyed your time in DC. We do hope to see you again soon.

Hotel was convenient and clean. Love the warm cookies of course. Lovely seating area situated between the bar and lobby. Staff friendly. Short walk to the White House. We were able to walk to Georgetown easily because the weather was nice, but took a cab back after dinner and it was under $10.

My husband and I had a great stay at this hotel. No incidents to complain of. The place was very clean, staff were friendly and attentive. This place is not the largest hotel but it is quaint. They do give you a cookie when you check-in. Nice. They have plenty of room in the lobby to hang out and watch the news. Food was average, but there are a lot of places to eat within walking distance.

This is an excellent hotel to stay in. Not to far to walk to reach the main part of the city and plenty of amenities in immediate vicinity. Reasonably priced. No complaints at all with this hotel. Recommended.

Centralized location, close to the zoo and historical tours. The staff was very helpful and willing to help me with transportation and/or directions to many of the local attractions. The lounge and restaurant staff was courteous, and the food/drinks were great.

Thank you for your review of your recent stay. I am pleased you found the team friendly and our location convenient to the local attractions. I am happy you had a chance to try out our restaurant and lounge, 15 RIA. Our restaurant is a little oasis here at the hotel. I hope you had a chance to sit outside and enjoy our new patio just off the front of the lounge and the hotel.

Thanks again, I hope you had a pleasant trip back home. We are looking forward to seeing you again soon.

I've been to DC a number of time but had never stayed at the DoubleTree. The staff was very friendly and eager to help. The rooms were clean and quiet and the bed super comfy. Did I mention the warm cookie? Totally worth the calories.
