This reminded me very much of The Drake in Chicago. Very grand and I think in its day the prime, now still impressive on first impressions but the rooms are pretty average.
Location pretty central and close to a Metro station.
The rooms and in particular the bathrooms needs updating. Staff on arrival were not overly friendly but the concierge was great explaining where to go for a great traditional American breakfast.
All in all good.
