I was really impressed. It was my first visit and I found it ideal in almost every way. I would definitely recommend it and would like to stay there again.Comment of H. Nigel , United States the 2016-01-30
"Old fashioned charm"
The location is great. It is close enough to main tourist areas without being in the middle of the 'din'. A stroll down to the Mall (you'll be towards the Lincoln Memorial end) or over to the White House was part of the fun of really getting to see the city - neither took terribly long. Public transportation is also a 'front door' option as well as the Metro. Just around the corner are a variety of places to eat, with something for everyone's budget and taste. A CVS is there too, for those last minute items. I found the room clean and comfortable. Temperature controls worked nicely. Our beds were firm and gave a good nights sleep. The bathroom was very clean and large enough for 2 children and an adult to work around each other when needed. There were two charging stations, which helps with all the devices we use today (cells, tablets and laptops). We were on the Massachusetts Ave. side, so ours was a quiet room. I noticed people jogging or calmly walking alone after dark, which speaks highly of the type of neighborhood it is. All the staff were friendly and helpful no matter what time of time I needed to ask a silly 'tourist' question. I really liked the valet service - we didn't use the car during our 2 night stay - and the cost was quite reasonable.
You have to watch for a sale to get a decent price at this place; it's in a ritzy neighborhood where you can easily pay $300/night. But I got a package deal with my flight. There aren't a lot of amenities in the building, but the room is nicely renovated (especially bathroom) and the staff people are quite helpful. The best factor is the location: peaceful neighborhood with LOTS of places nearby to eat, at every price level. A short walk to a Metro stop, and right across the street from a major museum.
"In deep need of renovation"
This hotel has the feel of a once-elegant, now down at the heels, hotel. While the location is indeed terrific, I was appalled at the grimy and threadbare carpeting in the room (bring slippers), tiny and very dark bathroom, and amazingly old-fashioned light switches, saggy bed, and other disappointing features. The lobby is odd: for a huge hotel there were maybe two chairs in a tiny area. The hotel restaurant (at breakfast) is a dismal production of overcooked scrambled eggs, overcooked and mostly cold sausages and bacon that were pretty greasy looking. The other odd thing is that the gym was updated and well-appointed--this seems to be a trend these days--update the gym but nothing else'
"Small but cozy "
The Hotel has a great location, close to public transport. All memorials and sights could also easily be reached by foot which I liked. Close to the Airport as well. The room was quite small, but very cozy and clean. Bathroom on the other hand was big and very nice. The TV had some problems with the connection which was a pity, but we were not there to watch TV after all, so it is not that bad. We did not have breakfast in the Hotel, therefore cannot judge the quality of food offered.
The hotel was very clean, our room was disabled friendly. Good location, pretty easy,though long, walk down Connecticut to the White House and onto the Washington monument. Staff were friendly and quite helpful in finding things to look at and go to see
