Modern and clean rooms and a very friendly staff
Posted Sep 1, 2015 on Hotels
The main room was very modern and clean. The bathroom was modern and the shower had great water pressure. Sure, the bathroom was small, but it had ample counter space and a nice make-up mirror. The bed was comfy but not fabulous. I called ahead and asked for foam pillows instead of feather ones and they were already on the bed when I arrived without my having to remind anyone. The room was quiet and I was not disturbed by any noises while sleeping. My only "ding" was that there was poor lighting in the room. It was too dark. The room needed an overhead light but it didn't have one, only the lights on the tables and nightstand. The location was great -- a couple of blocks from the Dupont Circle Metro, walking distance to restaurants. It was also close enough to the Mall (Lincoln Memorial, jogging paths, Washington Monument, etc.) to go jogging there in the morning or to visit the various sights. I checked out early and needed to leave my bags with the front desk, since I wasn't catching my train until much later that evening, and they were so nice about keeping everything for me. I found the staff to be super-friendly and helpful. I'd definitely recommend this hotel and when I'm in DC again it will be my first choice for a hotel stay.
