Horrible Parking

Hotel was nice and so was the breakfast but if you drive a vehicle over 6' you are not able to have valet parking because it won't fit in the garage.

Great price, clean, comfortable rooms

It was nicer than I was expecting, and the price was right. The hotel staff was very accommodating, and it's in a perfect spot in the city, close to the Metro.

Clean, comfortable hotel, short walk to transport

wonderful, comfortable stay. Breakfast pretty good, CVS right next door and a short walk to transport. We had made our reservation in February for a June stay and got a great price. When I wanted to add another day (about a month in advance), it was going to cost an extra $200 more than my base rate for the extra night. So we stayed somewhere else for the first night then checked in for the rest of the trip here. We had a 3 night stay. The room felt large and spacious for the 2 of us (compared to a regular hotel room). We used the pullout couch and it was comfortable. Breakfast had scrambled eggs everyday, with 4 or 5 different toppings (cheese, sour cream, salsa, green onion). There were yogurts and muffins and bagels and breads. And oatmeal. The food was good/meeting expectations and enough to get us up and going and hold us over for a while. There was also fresh fruit. CVS is right next door and has some food items. There's a 2 burner stove and a dishwasher, but no oven in the room. The freezer has an automatic ice maker. Nearby are a variety of eating places. Some breakfast/lunch places were closed on Sunday. The Circulator bus was about 3 blocks away and metro about 4 blocks. Short walks and felt safe. We would stay here again and would work to reserve early for the best possible price.

Very nice hotel in great location

This hotel was not only nicer than my apartment and my boyfriend's townhome, it was within easy walking distance to everything we wanted to see! It took maybe 15 minutes to get to the Smithsonian museums, about 5 minutes to the White House, and the monuments are all about the same. My only thing about this hotel that kind of sucked was that the food choices were mainly only open for breakfast and lunch as its in a business area. There are still choices, just not many that are cheaper.

Great place, very friendly staff.

Pros: Loved th people. Very friendly.
Cons: Nothing that I can think of.
Location: Walking distance to National Mall, and 3 blocks from metro station.
Every time I passed a staff member in the hall, I was greeted with a friendly hello. We couldn't find the remote for our TV, and called the front desk. They brought one up within 5 minutes of our call. Breakfast was fresh and abundant. Room was clean and very spacious. I would definitely stay here again on next trip to DC. Was in walking distance to restaurants and National Mall.

I was impressed with the location for the value.

Pros: Free breakfast
The room was decorated very nicely, but the furniture was exceedingly uncomfortable. The bed was ok, but I found the couch and chair rather unforgiving. Breakfast was fairly good, and the staff was very helpful and friendly.
