I stayed here for 5 nights at the end of August and I cannot fault this hotel. The staff are attentive, friendly and informative. From the moment I arrived until the time they put my suitcases in a taxi for the airport, they were the friendliest and most helpful hotel staff I have ever come across.
The location of the hotel is in central Washington just by Thomas Circle and a 10 minute walk away from The White House. There are numerous places to visit a few blocks away whether it be shopping, eating or sight seeing. The rooms are phenomenal! They are beyond large and have access to the rooftop pool which is a big hit during the summer months (The W Hotel has no outdoor/rooftop!). The tiger/zebra bathrobes also add that glamorous touch whilst lounging around the room! The TV's are also particularly large so getting a film to watch in bed is like being in a cinema! During my stay there were free drinks from 17:00-18:00 daily which was pretty amazing. The inclusive breakfast was incredible, the food and the selection for breakfast was vast. You will definitely not go hungry at this hotel. The staff were very attentive and recommended places to visit and try out.
The pool is the best feature! The pool, although not that large has enough space for plenty of sun loungers around it and is perfect for dipping in and out under the blazing sun. There is a free water fountain and bar on the roof top should you wish to quench your thirst with any other drinks around the pool.
Since my visit, I have joined the Kimpton Member's club so I don't miss out on any offers at any of their US based hotels. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough! This totally knocks the socks off any hotel I have stayed in over in the USA!!! STAY HERE!!!
