This was our second 5-night stay at the BCH, as we stayed there for 5 nights last year at the same time of year. There were a few minor changes due to the change of management from last year, one being that we paid for our parking (last year was complementary during the Christmas holiday), although the room rate was less. This hotel is a very good value, comfortable, friendly, and convenient to DC. I think that some of the mattresses may need replacement, as ours wasn't firm, and for two people sharing a double this can be a bit challenging. After our first night our room wasn't made up. I had spoken to the cleaning person to alert them the "Do not disturb" sign would be out until noon, but after that the room would be empty and available for cleaning. When we all arrived back that night, the room hadn't been cleaned even though the sign had been removed and the room vacated by noon. When I spoke to the person on duty, he was very apologetic. He would be sure to alert the cleaning staff. We had no further issues with cleaning, and the room was left tidy and well stocked subsequent days. Despite the one difficulty, we would certainly return to the BCH, particularly with the perk of a very nice breakfast offered daily.
