We have used this hotel many times and it jst keepsgetting better and better. The location is very good if you are going to the Smithsonian Museums. The concierge service is lame but everything else is very good.

While the staff that checked us in was great, thereafter they were not nice or helpful. The location is not good for families. While close to the AIr & Space Museum, the restuarants in the hotel are not very good and there are no restuarants in the vicinity (Quiznos is not a restuarant). We made a point to be sure we ate before returning to the hotel. Cabs were gone by 9:00 a.m. most mornings and hotel stall were not helpful in locating cabs. We learned to use the Metro which is probably 1/2 mile away from the hotel. Next time I will spend a few dollars more and stay on the other side of the National Mall.

Stayed here several years ago and had good experience. Nice remodel. Quiet hotel and close proximity to the mall makes it super convenient. Great for kids!

Nice hotel close to the national mall

Had a good experience, all staff from the restaurants at the lobby to the front desk were nice and friendly. I though my room would not be ready when we got there early around 11am but to my surprise the front desk said it was ready and I could check in. Thank you for my great accomodations to all the staff their.
