“Great hotel in Chinatown”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

I stayed here 1 night pre conference and was very pleased with the location and quality of my room. Comfy beds and nice bathroom made for a great stay. The location is just on the edge of Chinatown in DC and within walking distance of several good restaurants. We ate at the MatchBox down the street and it had excellent pizza. My conference was at the Hyatt so I only got to stay 1 night, but I'd recommend this property to anyone coming to DC.

Fabulous small hotel, clean, comfortable and spacious bedrooms. Stayed 9 Feb until 12th Feb 2014, the hotel is in an excellent location for exploring Washington and its glorious sights. The breakfast provided was delicious, providing the most delicious scrambled eggs I have ever had, muffins, fresh fruit salad, an array of fresh breads and the opportunity to cook your own waffles and more!!
The location is ideal to sample all the local restaurants, and its own little Irish bar attached had great character.
A wonderful stay.

Stayed here for a one night overnight after a Capitals game. Location is great, a few block walk to all the restaurants and right around the corner from Verizon Center. Has a pub in the building which is good too for drinks and late night food.

Valet parking worked fine but ended up being a little pricey with the final calculated cost plus taxes/tip. Next time would definitely just park in one of the garages around the corner for a flat fee.

Room was fairly spacious although dark, nice long desk to put junk on, but no mini fridge which would be essential for us on a longer stay. It was fine for one night though.

Offers free breakfast but we took one look at the crowd and opted out. Didn't have time to check out the fitness center/etc. but good location to go for an outdoor run downtown (easy access to the national mall).

I stayed here for two nights for work in October 2013. The place was a little difficult to find because their front entrance is kind of small, but it's a very urban center and when you walk in you can tell you're at a very well rated Marriott. There is tight security (it is DC), VERY nice staff who remembered my name during my entire stay there, one of the best complimentary breakfasts I have ever had along with constantly stocked coffee and flavored water. I have stayed many places where in the afternoon the coffee is stale or empty, so I really appreciate how clean and well kept the central area was. The location is excellent - only a few blocks from all of the most famous DC monuments, but at the same time you're just a little bit off the beaten path in the heart of a wonderful old Chinatown district with some amazing food. Chinatown has been highly gentrified in that area so many of the old Chinatown restaurants have been replaced by chain coffee places but you can still get terrific Chinese food or Pho. It's near downtown so it's busy day and night and during the weekdays so there wasn't ever a point that I felt uncomfortable walking alone - this is a thing in DC first-time visitors. Make sure you're somewhere safe.

The only caveat I would say is that I'm a young, working professional and this hotel was paid for by my employer, so I wouldn't have been able to afford to stay here normally, as the price is quite spendy due to the high rating of the hotel, the high quality of the hotel, and the really great location.

Very clean, within close proximity to numerous amenities. Service was great and pub located downstairs had excellent food and service as well. This is definitely my hotel of choice when staying in the DC area.

Good, clean and centrally located Hotel. We walked to everything. The check in staff were pleasant and helpful. Although the Concierge was a bit unhelpful. We asked him to get us a taxi to the airport - he asked us to wait and then disappeared from his post for over 20 minutes. One of the check in staff had to help us get a taxi. Other than that the hotel was clean and comfortable, the other staff very helpful. The breakfast is good, but the times need to be extended as there is always a crowd and no place to sit. The rooms were spacious and clean. The location was great as it is surrounded by restaurants and you can walk to the points of interest.

Great hotel! Very clean, very friendly, good morning breakfast, amazing location, walking distance to all the monuments. But do some research before because the concierge was not helpful at all. He told us every restaurant was booked because it was restaurant week and so both nights on our own we found our own reservations for restaurant week restaurants very easily. He must not have been trying. Other than that it was really a perfect place to stay!
