Stayed at the hotel for a week long conference that was on site. When I first arrived I found a spa sample packet on my pillow (pillow spray, foot cream, and a relaxation facial cream). It's a small touch, but very welcoming after traveling all day.
My room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. There is an air conditioner unit by the window, but the temperature control is on the opposite wall. There were several people at the conference who I over heard saying they were cold and couldn't get the buttons on the unit to work (they didn't find the temperature control pad on the wall!).
Housekeeping kept the room tiddy, the complimentary toiletries stocked, and linens clean. The large picture window overlooking the Potomac was nice. The only thing in my room that I had a problem with was the mini refrigerator, which was just below room temperature.
I did not dine at the hotel restaurant, but there are many nice eateries in easy walking distance. Just behind the hotel is a beautiful walking trail through nicely kept and safe parks along the rivers edge. If you don't want to walk, the hotel offers a free shuttle to the King Street area and to/from the airport. That was an excellent bonus, as so many hotels no longer offer shuttle service.
