Counter service was a little slow checking in, but they more than made up for it with their professionalism and witty engagement. The hotel is an easy walk to the Metro and plenty of local restaurants are close by. The room was very well appointed. Comfortable bed, nicely decorated, spacious shower, good internet speed, and responsive HVAC. Unfortunately I left my keys in my room and didn't realize it until I got to my vehicle in Ohio. I called the hotel and between Neil and Miss Gonzales my keys had already been turned in by the housekeeping staff. Miss Gonzales had my keys shipped to me. Need a hotel - use this one.
Retaining the charm this building had when this hotel was a Ritz Carleton. Great location. Big rooms. But don't plan on eating here. Food is less than ordinary and steep hotel prices. But since it's so close to Dupont circle, great restaurant choices abound.
"Older facility with charm but needs upgrading. "
I attended a conference here from November 11-13. I had a very small room, no doubt the result of a very good rate on Groupon. The hotel has dated charm; the check in facilities and lobby are not suited to groups of any significant size. The electrical connections in the room were inadequate requiring some to be unplugged for others to work; the switches on the lamps were temperamental. The staff was well trained and very friendly and helpful. The quality of the catering in the dining room was remarkable for the number of persons served. Overnight shoeshine service is a nice touch.
"Above & Beyond"
It was one of those days....when I got to the hotel i realized the reservation was for the following week. Samere Zemo went above and beyond to get me straightened out. Many thanks to Samere at a world class hotel! The hotel was bustling with activity. It was a hard week to fit someone in but he managed. The room was great! The location was central and the weather was perfect for a run on the nearby trails.
Elegant hotel, with old-school furnishings and decor, in excellent location. The Good: Location x3. Very nice neighborhood. A quick walk to DuPont Circle, U Street Corridor, and downtown. Metro nearby. Lots and lots of restaurants within walking distance. Hotel itself is well-maintained and is blessed with a wonderfully effective HVAC system. The room was a perfect temperature all weekend, and the fact that we could open a window to the fall weather made it even better. Shower was terrific, with lots of hot water and pressure. Plenty of storage space in the bathroom, as well. There is a bar and restaurant, as well as a small gym on the premises. I booked this hotel through Priceline but liked it enough I'll book it directly next time.
