We got this room via priceline and saved a couple of dollars off the rack rate. Savings was not mind blowing, but for the price we paid, it was value for money. The front desk was very friendly and helpful, and the room was huge (for 2 people) and clean. There was free wifi and free coffee in the mornings. The room we were in faced 16th st, and thus could get noisy at night with all the sirens. We were sound sleepers though, so that wasn't a problem at all. The elevators were a bit dim, but i guess it's all part of the atmosphere.
The location isn't too bad. The area is primarily residential, so we had to go to connecticut ave (around a 10min walk) to eat and shop. The metro stop is also a good 10-15min walk (farragut north station, not sure about the dupont station though). For tourists going on the trolley tour, 2 stops are nearby. One is at the capital hilton (along 16th st) which is around 10-15 mins away, but this is only a pick-up stop--the trolley only comes by around 9am in the morning (and a couple of return trips in the afternoon). The other is stop #16 (white house), a bit farther down along 16th, in front of the hay adams. There is a regular trolley that comes along on this stop.
