“Smooth”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

This place is very good value. The building (Lapidus design) is lovely, a treat for the eyes from the exterior and equally good to be in, if you like a modernist lobby and the smooth lines of mid-century architecture. I do, and while it's been refurbished it has held its stylish edge. Very painless check-in and we were upgraded straight away -- our room was large, decor inoffensive and even somewhat stylish. It's a good spot for eating around Logan Circle or down to Dupont Circle, so we didn't try the restaurant, but I wish we had, because it looked cool-retro in there. Desk staff were helpful with wake-up calls and other bits of business. Everything was painless. Big fish tanks in the lobby were a nice touch, ditto the mid-century chairs, lounges, the orchids, the screens. It felt nice to be in there.

This hotel offers all amenities in a most graceful manner. I was tired when checked in: a king-size bed with 6 pillows (count em!) took care of that! Thomas Circle is an area of large office buildings (mostly non-government), not the most interesting part of DC if you're seeking nightlife and restaurants. Tourists might prefer a hotel elsewhere. Good, well-run hotel.

We spent three nights here and visited many of the sights using the metro, bus and walking to some of them. Very convenient too to restaurants in the area, 14th Street, DuPont Circle, Chinatown, etc. Staff were helpful and it was a mice gesture to receive a call after checking in to find out whether everything was okay. I would recommend this hotel.

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel...it was very close to the major sights in DC and a few blocks to the Metro, making it very easy to get around. The hotel is a bit older but re-decorated to give it an art-deco appeal. The beds were very comfortable. The rooms are somewhat small but it met our needs perfectly...after all the sight seeing, we were mainly there to rest/sleep after action packed days of touring around. I would come back to this location the next time I am in the area.
