We stayed here for 6 nights during the Cherry Blossom Festival and our kids (ages 11 and 15) spring break. We loved this hotel, and my quibbles are few and very minor.
The staff was great and friendly. Having a suite with 2 rooms and 2 tv's was great--and it was cleaned perfectly every day. I guess my biggest complaints about the room were the double beds (why oh why do hotels insist on using doubles instead of queens?) and the pillows. I solved that problem by going to Bed Bath and Beyond and buying an inexpensive feather pillow.
We requested a high floor away from the elevator in hopes of avoiding some of the noise others complained about, but that wasn't an issue at all. Most of the people staying there were families and business people---no rowdy teens or groups. And the construction right outside our window was a non-issue as well. Not a bit of noise from that.
The breakfast was fabulous. On the first morning we were there, we were a bit concerned---the lines were absolutely awful. But the bus boys stayed on top of keeping tables cleaned off, and the managers brought out trays of juice to those of us in line and apologized profusely for the wait. The rest of the week there were virtually no lines at all. After a long day of sightseeing, the Manager's Reception was a welcome way to wind down over some wine or cocktails before dinner.
The location was awesome. We used the Circulator, the Metro (about 2 blocks away), and walked a lot. Many good restaurants nearby (including Matchbox and Capital City Brewing Co., our personal favorites).
The hotel does have a laundry facility, but there were only 2 washers and 2 dryers that were almost always in use, especially at night---it didn't really seem to be enough for the number of rooms.
The concierge desk was manned with nice people very knowledgeable and helpful about the area. We used them several times, and they gave excellent advice.
Room service---did that the first night as we were exhausted. It wasn't bad, but not great either. It was delivered within 30-45 minutes.
In the lobby area, there were 6 computers available for guests to use to check email, internet, etc. This was so helpful for checking on restaurants or tours, and there were printers so you could print your info out.
I would definitely highly recommend this hotel, and would absolutely stay here again on our next trip to D.C.
