My husband and I stayed 3 nights in Sept. This hotel is more than comfortable although not what you'd call glamourous. The lobby is quite attractive although small but the staff are welcoming. The room is what you'd expect from a chain, nothing out of the ordinary but its clean and well presented. The bathroom was on the small side but OK. What I liked about the hotel is two fold. Firstly it has a lovely bar off the lobby for a comfortable sit down over a cocktail before going out to dinner. Secondly,from the hotel its a comfortable 5-10 min walk to all the cafes and bars in Adams Morgan or 5 mins to many more in Dupont Cirlce. Also in Dupont Circle you have the Metro which is so easy to access.(There are really helpful staff here too, who help you buy the correct ticket) We chose the hotel because it gave us a better rate (not cheap after conversion to the Aust. dollar!) than other hotels in the area. I'd recommend a stay if you a mindful of your budget but want great access to public transport and a large choice for dinner.
