“Great Extended Stay”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

I just checked out of this hotel after a four-week stay. It was a great choice for this. I had a comfortable, clean room on the street side of the 7th floor - no problems whatsoever with the place. Unlike some places, the TV included a full range of basic cable channels plus HBO, so I could keep up with all my regular TV watching including summer cable fare. I was in town long enough to really take advantage of the kitchen, which was well-appointed enough to make some good basic fare. Housekeeping staff was non-intrusive and efficient. The fitness center is quite adequate. Laundry machines are clean and work well (they actually do what the settings say they'll do - if you've ever had the opposite, you know how welcome this is).

The included breakfast was always very good and didn't skimp on quality or quantity - a good hot selection (4 selections daily, usually including a to-go option like a breakfast sandwich), plus cereals, make-your-own waffles, etc. The included dinner M-W each week was always a welcome option after a workday as well.

Finally, location is great - walking distance to plenty of restaurants, a little grocery store a block away, the DuPont Circle farmers market on Sunday morning, etc.

Downsides: I had some shirts cleaned, and the laundry service didn't do a great job on cleaning or ironing (nothing permanent). Also, the hotel failed my usual security test: I asked for a duplicate key, claiming I'd locked myself out, and I was given one without any ID check, just a room number.

Room Tip: I was happy with a street-side room on a high floor, but I'm a pretty deep sleeper. I think the...

I have to say the hotel staff was wonderful starting with front desk and housekeeping. Especially Teresita (in housekeeping) who was very helpful. The rooms were great and very clean. The only things i would complain about was the air conditioning was very loud and the wifi was barely there.
Breakfast was great and staff serving the breakfast was also very efficient.

The best thing about this hotel is the service. Every single staff person was pleasant and friendly. The first night we were there, the cleaning people forgot to clean our room but they were very apologetic and offered to come right away to freshen it up. Our key card stopped working one day and they fixed the issue immediately.

We ate breakfast each day -- waffles, cereal, fruit, parfaits and toast were some of the options. Mon-Wed dinner was also offered which options like tacos and BBQ. The food was not extraordinary but was decent and plentiful -- especially handy to help our family of four save money on expensive DC food.

The in-room kitchen was nice and well stocked with dishes so we could make lunches to eat picnics on the Mall. We bought snacks at trader joes and the local Metro market. Also a great money saver!

My favorite part of the rom was that it had a DOOR. Our teens shared the queen sized sofa bed with their own tv and we were able to have some privacy.

All in all, our room was very clean. I wish there was an ice machine since the one in the fridge didn't produce very quickly but that was a small thing. The hotel is only a few blocks from the metro and we even walked from the Mall one day since it was only about two miles away.

A great hotel for the money!

The lobby and breakfast area were a bit small for the size of the hotel but the service was second to none in this price range. Everything in the room was clean and appeared to be very new. Breakfast and evening social hour were well stocked with lots of variety. There were always at least two people maintaining the food areas during service times. All of the staff members are very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and helpful to tourists. My only complaint was that I did not feel all that safe after dark. Stay away from the pizza place down the street. There were many better options in the area.

What a great find! We had a week's stay in a studio. The hotel feels very new and the room modern and really well laid out for our family of 4. Full kitchen was so handy. Sofabed was great for the kids and there was plenty of space. The staff were so helpful and always on hand to assist with anything that we needed. Great breakfast and also dinner 3 nights a week! What a bonus. Dinner one evening was chicken with marinara sauce, pasta, fresh salad vegies, chips, bread, soda, dessert. This really saved us having to eat out so we really appreciated each dinner. The hotel is located right in the Dupont area so plenty of restaurants, shopping and easy walk to subway. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a hotel in the DC area.

We (two parents and two kids under 10) booked a One Bedroom Suite and it was perfect for us. The bedroom is separate, and the sofabed is in the living area. There is a microwave, fridge/freezer and cooktop which helps. Breakfast is included and is humble, but good enough. The room was comfortable and everything worked, including the free wifi which was easy to use.The bathroom lacks a real shower (stand in the tub with a fabric curtain), but I guess you can't have everything.

The lobby is very small, but then it doesn;t need to be any more than it is. The breakfast room is comfortable, if a little small.

The standout for me was the staff - all friendly and helpful and they made it a pleasure.

If there, you must eat at the adjacent Asia 54 (out the front door, turn left and it is on your immediate left) - great value, service and good food. The adjacent Mexican restaurant (out the front door, turn right and it is onyour immedaite right) is also good value, and pleasant enough if you love Mexican food.

The Metro station is less than a five minute walk (2 blocks) away, and there is a grocery store next door. I can't ask for more than that!

$ 299 for a room was a little steep, I thought.

This was a great place to stay for the five of us, Mom dad had a bed room the older brother had his own room the little kids had a sofa bed and a cot. Very close to restaurants, metro and lots of cabs right in front of the hotel. The staff is very polite and responsive. There was a Great breakfast every morning and dinner some days a week but when you are out sightseeing there is not much chance of catching the evening meal. The only downfall is the internet as other guests had said is SLOW.
Other than that I highly recommend this place.
