The hotel was next to a metro stop so it was very convenient. We were disappointed this time because the clothes dryer in the laundry room was broken and we had planned on doing some of our laundry. Staff offered to dry our things in their dryer after we washed, but we declined. Also, we had to get our keys redone a couple of times. People hanging around the 7eleven next door sometimes made comments.

A little understaffed Monday. Restaurant, although privet, had excellent food. Room was kept very clean by overzealous housekeeper

We appreciate your valuable feedback regarding your recent stay! We did unfortunately have some staff shortages around the New Years Holiday, I apologized if this caused any inconveniences. We are glad you found the room to be clean and comfortable though and look forward to seeing you back!

Visiting DC

Location: The hotel is quietly right off the beaten path. All around it is very commercial. The pool is kind of small. It may be full when you get there.
This was a great hotel for us. It was in a quiet but busy area. Access to the train was next door. From there you are minutes most anywhere you want to be. Mr. Bill and everyone else on the staff were wonderful.

Not too far from the Capitol or the White House.

Everyone was very, very nice! Our stay was made all the more pleasant by an exceedingly helpful staff.

near lots of restaurants and metro

it was off the beaten path but next door to metro so easy to get to the sightseeing places. I loved that is it was next door to a convenient store and there were about 5 restaurants within a 2 block radius. My kids liked the heated indoor pool. the hotel was secure since you had to use a keycard to operate the elevator.

the hotel was always accomodating and always willing to answer any questions we had.

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: No free Internet
the hotel was in very good condition and the location to the metro was very helpful and accomodating if you had no transportation. the hotel was in close proximity to several fast-food resturants and a drug store and supermarket.Also the hotel security made our stay feel safe and secure.
