We came to town from Baltimore for one evening in DC and to run in a the Cherry Blossom 10-miler race the next morning.
The best part about the hotel was the location and the POV rooftop lounge for Sunday lunch with amazing views.
The staff was friendly, just not that professional. Everything was roped off, so you had to continuously explain why you wanted to get to the elevators. There were three 4x4 elevators that were extremely slow and one was out of service.
The friendly concierge recommended lunch at a cafe around the corner which sounded great. Unfortunately when we got there, the secret service had it all blocked off and we could not get in with having a reservation.
Making it an early night of 11pm for the 7am race start, we had to muffle the beating club music coming from the roof top bar with the TV all night.
$250 per night, $50 valet parking, $15 for wifi, $21 for room service of 1 banana and coffee and absolutely no cell phone service equaled a big let down.
If I did it again, I would stay somewhere else and make a lunch reservation at the POV for the view.
