If you travel with your dog or cat, you will like this hotel. If you have allergies to animal dander, stay away. This is a pet-friendly chain that allows dogs to hang around the lobby with their owners, with animals often sitting on upholstered chairs in lobby. Expect to share an elevator with someone's pet and be prepared for the possibility of dander, pet hair (or fleas) where you least expect it. It is not u common to hear a yapping dog going at it every time someone walks near the unit where the dog is staying...especially if the animal is left alone while owners are out.
The hotel itself is decent. Good location, five minute walk to DuPont circle and Foggy Bottom metros. Rooms are nicely furnished with comfy beds, flat screen TV, etc. but generally the rooms are small and bathrooms tiny. The lobby of the hotel is a small corridor about 10x30 feet that leads from front entrance to a small check in desk. There is no real lobby to hang out in or meet with people. It is a decent hotel if you are ok sharing it with pets...other than that, it is not so impressive and you might get more bang for your buck elsewhere. I also need to add that the hotel neglected to make a requested wake-up call one morning. Fortunately we had a back up alarm. This is not what you would expect from a top notch establishment. They are doing sewer line construction along New Hampshire avenue, so if you don't want to hear heavy machinery in the morning, ask for a room that doesn't face the main street.
