We booked a double room at a discounted advanced rate and were upgraded to a suite. Needless to say, the value we got was exceptional.
We found the hotel to be well-located, a five-minute walk away from the Foggy Bottom subway station.
The hotel gives a general feeling of old charm, rather than modernity. However, we found it to be very well maintained and we did not get the "tired" feeling previous posters have commented on. The suite was large and very comfortable. The bathroom is nice in a classic way, everything was spotlessly clean. A few downsides: shower pressure isn't great and the airco compressor kicking in and out throughout the night to maintain room temperature can be a tad noisy. Our suite faced Pennsylvannia Avenue, which keeps busy at all times, including with sirens, so I would advise earplugs if you're a light sleeper (or requesting a room facing the back).
Few interactions with staff, door staff were very kind, reception staff a bit less so (not really unpleasant either, just a bit cold).
Overall very satisfied with our stay.
