My wife and I stayed here while visiting the nearby offices of a professional organization (and that organization paid for the room directly, so I don't actually know whether the value for that particular stay was great, but the advertised rates don't look bad for a place that advertises itself as a luxury hotel). The rooms were fine, the service was fine, and all in all it was a very pleasant stay at a hotel in a less bustling location near an area noted for a lot of bustle.
One warning: The place advertises itself as being near the White House, which is supposedly "just a 20 minute walk" away. I carefully measured the distance to be somewhat over a mile via walking routes, and I think their statement is technically true if one walks nearly four miles per hour and can keep up that pace through traffic lights. If you want to visit the White House and environs and don't want to walk that far, your better bet is to take the Metro from the Dupont Circle station to one of the Farragut Square stations or the one on McPherson Square, which cuts out about two-thirds of that hike for a nominal fee.
