We just returned from a trip to DC and stayed for 5 nights in two rooms (one suite and one regular room). For DC this is a good value and location. You are about two blocks from a metro, overnight parking is $15/night and you can come and go and you are on King Street which has a free shuttle up and down the street making it easy to get to the waterfront, restaurants, torpedo factory, etc.
The hotel is pretty good. The unit in the rooms that provides heat is one of the noisiest I have ever experienced - and this was the case in both rooms. It was so loud when it would kick on, that we ended up turning it off for the night and just dealing with the room getting cold as it was preferable to constantly waking up. We also had an issue with the TV in our sitting area not getting sports channels that it should have had. Being an older hotel, the elevators are very slow and the amenities are few. We had a need to scan and email documents and the front desk had no idea how or where we could do this.
However, the morning breakfast was good every morning. I'm gluten free, but could always have fruit, yogurt and hard boiled eggs - which I appreciated. There were hot items for the others as well. Seating was limited, but you could take things to go. They had coffee and tea available all of the time in the lobby. There is no restaurant on site, but there are many nearby.
