My husband and I have been to DC on several occaisions and have stayed in different areas.. The location of the hotel is one of its selling points- within an easy walk to the Capital, Mall and to Union Station for metro use. We had a small corner room that was clean and nicely appointed- the size and lack of view didn't bother us because we didn't spend much time there. It was quiet as well which I asked for. Common areas were busy at times but clean and appealing. I did use the fitness facility which is one of the largest and nicely appointed I have ever used in a hotel. We did not eat any meals in the restuarant. Our check-in went smoothly and the staff we encountered were professional and accommodating. There is a Starbucks across the street along with a cafe a block up, open during the work week. I did encounter some panhandling in the hotel vicinity but I have encountered worse in other travels.
The odd thing for me about my stay was that there was a very noticeable leak in the bathroom sink faucet- so much so that it ran all over the sink and down to the floor. I had to use a washcloth to stop the water collection. It would have been impossible for the housekeeping staff to miss it and report it for repair. At checkout, I mentioned there was a repair issue and the front desk person didn't even ask what the issue was- just that she would report to maintenance. I had to ask her if she wanted me to tell her what the issue was- not the sign of 4 stars to me.
Would I stay here again- maybe. Price and location are factors for me, however there are many hotel alternatives in the immediate DC area.
