“2nd stay here”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

I would have to say that I like this hotel for its location. The room was clean. staff was polite and helpful. Room required minor maintenance. The door was very hard to open ( 225). Overall I came back so not a bad choice definitely not the best place you could stay in dc but far from worst.

stayed for event at convention centre,
good location - 20 mins to here, 20 mins to downtown.
Staff good, free wi-fi.
Tip - book breakfast ahead as the buffet is $18 on the day.
Safe location, lots of bars in all directions of hotel.
Try Church Key - full of locals, with 50 draft beers and a food.
Have stayed here a number of times for same convention and the staff are always helpful, rooms clean and had no issues.

The best of this hotel its the location, its just a 1.5 miles of all tourist attractions, located in a nice and quiet neighborhood, with restaurants, and shops nearby. The rooms are clean and comfortable and free wifi always a plus.
the staff was courteous and friendly. The only downside was the breakfast because they don't have the buffet that i pay for, instead they offer us a little bit confusing voucher system, but the quality of the breakfast was amazing. i would definitely stay here again.
parking was 30 dls everyday.

Room Tip: there is a 7 eleven, and whole food market, just two blocks away.

The staff was very friendly and helpful, good location, clean room, reasonably priced. The only thing I didn't like was pulling up to check in there wasn't a lot of space to leave our car. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here over spring break 2012 for the Cherry Blossoms Fest. We arrived a week before the Festival was to start but as luck would have it, the cherry trees festooned early! The staff at the hotel greated us cheerfully and made us feel like family the entire 7 days we were there. It is several blocks North of the White House and quite a walk at times, especially at the end of a long tour day! It sits about equal distance between two Metro stations, also several blocks. Have no fear, however, the concierges definitely know how to summon a taxi! Our room service was excellent and seriously, every night we came in to the lobby, it was like we were more and more at home with our new family! I would definitely stay here again! (It was also much less than the Capitol location.

Pros: the front desk staff were wonderful. They were really friendly, and allowed us a let checkout time sine our flight was later in the afternoon. The room was clean and the bed was quite comfortable. The location is also quite central to many DC attractions.

Cons: As others have stated, the wifi connection could be improved. This would really help to improve the overall experience at the hotel.

Overall, a good place to stay in DC.

Staff, both front desk and restaurant were friendly and very helpful.
Restaurant food was so-so. slightly overpriced, and a bit disappointing

But most disappointing was the wifi. We were on the 4th floor near the elevator, and the wifi was lousy.
