I was meeting my husband in DC and got to the hotel before he did. As the reservation was under his name and credit card I knew I would have to wait a few until he arrived. I went up to the desk clerk (it was a Wednesday at 5 p.m.) and mentioned my situation. He told me (as I expected) that I would have to wait until my husband arrived but immediately suggested he take my bags. When I asked where the lobby was to wait, he walked me over to the "wine happy hour" and introduced me to the young lady and got me a glass of wine (complimentary) and showed me where to wait. I sat by the fireplace and enjoyed the great start to my trip!
The hotel staff are tremendously helpful and friendly. The rooms are incredibly clean and quiet. Our room was directly across from the elevator and I instantly thought this was going to be a noisy problem. However, there was plenty of space between the door and the actual room. Long enough hallway to prevent the noise from disturbing sleep.
The location is fantastic. Directly on the VA side of the Key Bridge, we walked across it to Georgetown and had dinner, walked around a bit and then across the bridge to the hotel. Great view of Kennedy Center and part of the city. Short walk and closer than some DC hotels we have stayed in!
The Rosslyn metro is right across the street, behind the McDonald's. A very short walk to the Orange line and direct shot into DC and the museums.
We have stayed at Le Meridien's in Philadelphia and London and these have become our "go to" hotels as we know what great service and amenities to expect.
