Very lovely boutique experience in nice part of NW, on the edge of GWU. While the ambience is a bit Old World (and the elevators are outdated), the room itself was appropriately up to date to make an enjoyable stay. Well-outfitted room was comparable to much more expensive properties. My room had a 'kitchennette' but it was essentially a sink, mini-fridge, and coffeemaker (no microwave to heat those leftovers you you brought back from dinner and stored in the fridge!). Included a small dining nook with wonderful natural ighting, greatplace to sit and have coffee without feeling like you were in a hotel room.
Number of dining options close by with a wide variety of choices -- and quality! I enjoyed trying several of the GWU neighborhood joints (especially Foggy Bottom Grocery), but you'll find Au Bon Pain, TGI Fridays, and Johhny Rockets within a block or so as well.
Close enough to walk to the Mall and White House, although Metro stations were 5-6 blocks away in any direction.
No pool although they give you passes to another hotel's pool that is a 20-minute walk away. Probably not worth the trek. Although reasonably family-friendly, this is a place you use as base to enjoy all hat DC has to offer, it's not a place you count to provide your recreation while you are here. The fitness center is minimally adequate with a couple of machines and no free weights (that I could see).
