We truly loved this hotel - it was a pleasure to stay at! We were in DC for a wedding and extended our trip to do some sightseeing. The hotel is in a great location - it is a little northwest of downtown but this is good because it is a little quieter. There are some great spots to eat and drink nearby - so even if you are not downtown there are places to go. Either way it is a $10-$15 cab ride downtown and you are a two minute walk to the Metro so the hotel is really accessible. The service was great - the concierge was very helpful with advice for sites and places to eat.
If you are going to stay here I recommend joining the Select Guest program - you get free WiFi in your room, free paper in the morning, two free morning beverages, two items pressed during your stay (nice for the wedding suit!) and overall great treatment. Also, since it is free there is no reason not to join. I felt like it was definitely worth it especially since I can possibly get a free room one night during my next stay.
So I would say my only complaint was the elevators - they were really small and really slow. This was OK for us because it forced us to take the stairs all the time (which is healthier) but if you were on the eighth floor you might not be as willing.
Overall we had a terrific stay and we definitely plan to stay here during our next trip to DC!
