The hotel is located within walking distance of the White House, subway station and lots of restaurants. However, be aware that this is a working area and therefore at weekends and in the evenings it gets pretty quiet. You have to travel out a fair few blocks if you don't want to eat in the hotel.
The room was spacious, clean (although damp - the carpet dried out with the window open for the day) and the bed was big and comfy! The only issue is the noise - we wanted to be street side for the sun shine and the views but be prepared for street noise. We were on the 12th floor and we could still hear everything going on outside - especially the saxophonist / brass band that were busking on a nearby street corner every morning from 7am...!
The staff at the hotel were always friendly and welcoming - impressive for such a big hotel. It did however take four different phone calls and two conversations in person for them to link together our two bookings (made prior to arriving as we decided to extend our stay).
The room service was superb - really lovely food. Having a laundry room in the hotel was a bonus - especially as we were on such a long trip. It saved on massive hotel laundry bills or trekking out to find a wash and fold service.
Would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in DC on a bit of a budget!
