a converted old YMCA building in "Old Town". Renovation done well-spacious rooms, soothing light gray carpeting and walls of corridors, well equipped fitness center. very helpful front desk staff, though need 1-2 more staff at high check-in times. room staff do an excellent job cleaning, and sensitive to coming in to clean only when customers are out. walking distance to art museum, washington monument, some excellent restaurants.
down sides-rooms near the street are noise during heavy traffic, car park inconvenient across a busy street, "restaurant" is more like an upgrade coffee shop (and a la carte for breakfast), closets are too small for two people's hangings, no place to store luggage.
