This is a nice, clean hotel in a great neighborhood in D.C. The room we were in (317) was large with a small kitchenette, which comes in very handy for an extended stay. The view from there is of an alleyway and looks across at the outside of the hotel, so that wasn't anything special (to say the least). This is an older, nicely maintained property. The hotel staff is friendly and go out of their way to be helpful, making coming and going through the lobby a delight. Hats off to the management and staff for maintaining such an accommodating atmosphere.
There is not a work out facility on the property but there is an arrangement with a local health club which is a 10-15 minute walk way. The work out facility is terrific and, though I can't believe I'm writing this, worth the walk (or short cab ride) through a nice neighborhood. Speaking of the neighborhood, it's a lovely area in which to walk with an abundance of restaurants and shops.
The Metra stop is there in the Circle and, therefore, so is access to all things D.C.
We particularly enjoyed "Kramer Books and Afterwords Cafe" and stopped there for breakfast and/or coffee several mornings on our way to catch the Metra. It's great fun with a decent menu and a quirky, hip vibe. Our experience with the wait staff there was also very good.
