This is a newly renovated and well maintained botique-feeling hotel a couple of blocks from rich cultural offerings of Dupont Circle. I am Priceline booker for all my DC hotel rooms four times a year, and this hotel accepted my bid for a moderate price. I have stayed in all of the 4 star hotels in the city in the past five years. I was initially disappointed that my favorite places had not taken my bid, and I knew nothing about this place. However, my disappointment quickly gave way to the delight of being treated like a king. There was no disparate treatment of me because i was paying so little through Priceline (as I sometime encounter). In the old hotel style, the rooms are small but not cramped, but with very large modernistic bathrooms, good electronics and fairly priced robust wifi, and excellent staff. The rooms are furnished with high quality linen, very large towels, crisp new carpet, and nice furnishings. One tableside lamp had an electrical outlet, and beneath the desk were other free outlets. The flatscreen tv had HDMI inputs, which were not "locked" as many hotels now do, thus allowing me to connect my computer so I could stream video on the robust wifi connection for the usual charge. The hotel has a trendy restaurant and bar, and prompt room service until 10:45pm. The food was appetizing and ample, and appropriately priced. The staff were all well trained in customer service, even with the maid leaving a handwritten note urging me to let her know of any unmet needs I had. The housekeeping service is vigilant, the "do not disturb" placard was fully honored (which is rare), and even if I left the room at 2pm, when I returned at 5pm the room had been cleaned. The front desk staff was fast and efficient, and I was greeted in the driveway by doormen who whisked my luggage inside, without waiting for any gratuity. The doormen had taxis or private drivers for me within two minutes each and every time, opened the passenger doors, and instructed the driver on my destination. In short, this property is extremely well managed, the staff is highly motivated, and gave me the impression throughout my stay that I was the key to the hotel's success.
