We stayed here over Easter and arrived mid morning after a red eye flight from the West to a room ready for us. We were checked in very quickly and efficiently and headed up to our room. The lobby of the hotel was gorgeous and inviting, and there was acoustic music some of the evenings. The concierge was helpful and able to gave us some good tips for exploring DC. Our room was on a mid floor but near the elevators and ice machine. This was only a problem on the Friday and Saturday nights when (likely) intoxicated individuals seemed to be continuing the party after leaving the roof top night club. The bathroom door is a slider and does not go all the way to the wall---that was a bit odd. Our room was big enough for the two of us and contained a king bed. The bathroom was massive. The room was decorated nicely and had an amenities that we required.
We didn't have a view and were actually curious if people could see into our room from the other wing of the hotel..they had smoked glass and we didn't seem to, so we just kept our blinds drawn, it's not like we had anything to see!
Finally, the location is really what sold us. We were nearby all the major sites and also near a subway station. We walked to the tidal basin, white house, capital building, the memorial sites and the Smithsonian. We were a short taxi away from the airport and Georgetown. We were able to walk to the Verizon center and close to shopping and restaurants. If you aren't going to spend much time at your hotel other than sleeping, this is an excellent choice.
