First off we enjoyed this hotel as this was a highlight of our trip to Washington. I didn't book on any site and just stopped in. John was training a new hire so I was patient. John jumped in at perfect times with helpful feedback and suggestions he even worked with me on the price as I was thinking of going to the Palomar for a couple nights and he helped me make my choice easier with highlights of both hotels. We choose this hotel because of him. We choose the King bed with the amazing tub. Well worth the upgrade as my wife enjoyed it after a long day walking around the city.
John pulled out a local map highlighted the local attractions and suggested routes to take to see them. The parking was the only frustrating part do to you have to use their service which cost 45 bucks. I would suggest they up the price of the room and include free parking for guest. You also must sign up to the reward program to receive free internet. I suggest you do this before going as the VIP gets good benefits at this hotel. Also when they suggest a cab take it as Washington traffic is rough on the weekends and good luck finding a parking space anywhere in the city. All in all a great choice and the views from the hotel where great as the Whitehouse is about a mile walk. For my first time here it was well worth the extra dollars for the comfort of this hotel.
Side note: the pool is outside and when we went they where under construction. If not for those few minor things I would have easily gave this place a 5 star.
