A few minutes walk from Washington Circle and around 5-7 mins to Foggy Bottom metro stop. Also easy to flag a taxi outside. Conveniently, there is a convenience store and a coffee shop next door and a Trader Joe's just around the corner. I had a deluxe double room and it was HUGE..! It had a work/ seating area and a sleeping area (see photos). Very tastefully decorated. Also a nice lobby area with a fireplace (see pic) and very friendly helpful staff too.
We ate the crab cakes in the restaurant one evening and they were very good. I also ordered room service once - crab bisque which was nice and peppery with big chunks of crab in it, although possibly not quite warm enough. Just remember that the price you see on the menu will be subjected to service, tax and tray charges - hence my 20 dollar bill actually ended up being 30 dollars! You do get complimentary iced water with the meal without having to ask for it.
Good fitness centre - open 24 hours and with 4 treadmills - but, wow, it was packed at 6.30 am every morning!
Only two gripes - the breakfast is à la carte rather than buffet which is nice when you have lots of time but not very convenient when you are rushing. Also, there is no kettle in the room. Complimentary tea and coffee are available in the lobby in the morning, but no facility if, for example, you would like a cup of camomile before bed. Tea and coffee from the bar was very expensive (5 dollars before tax and service is added).
Nevertheless, a very good quality hotel and I would definitely stay here again.
