This old hotel has beautiful public areas. It's huge and connected to the convention center, so it can accommodate multiple events at once. There are also numerous good restaurants within the building. (From the street, these restaurants are actually better marked than the hotel itself. My husband and I accidentally passed it several times and ended up parking in a different garage. However, this was fortunate since the weekend parking for the mall area was a fraction of what the hotel lot was charging.)
On Wisconsin Ave and connected to the convention center, the hotel is pretty conveniently located. However, it had been billed as being connected to the downtown via skywalk. Though technically true, it's not really connected in any convenient way. You have to go through the convention center, which takes you on a very roundabout route to the rest of the downtown. The doors are also locked in the evening, when it's cold and dark outside and the skywalk would be most convenient. Basically, don't think you're going to beat the midwestern cold this way.
Our queen-bed room was small but recently and fashionably remodeled. I was, however, disappointed in the worn-out sheets. The first night, my pillowcase was badly stained. The second night, the sheets were ripped. I would get rid of these linens at home and certainly expect that a high-end hotel would do the same.
