Guest reviews for WhyHotel by Placemakr, National Mall

5 out of 5
For the price, there is quite a bit of value. You have a full stove and oven, cookware provided (along with dishes for 4) and a full sized refrigerator and freezer. This is in addition to the washing machine, dryer, and dishwasher also in the unit. You also get any needed supplies, such as soap, shampoo, body wash, laundry detergent, or dish detergent. The room was quiet, clean, and provided anything I could ask for! So if you want a 5 star hotel where someone cleans everyday and you can over pay to eat at the hotel restaurant, you can pay to go somewhere else. But if you want to enjoy your time and focus more of your money on your trip (and not the hotel), I would highly recommend this.

El servicio fue muy agradable. Habitacion comoda y con los utensilios necesarios. Le doy 5 estrellas, el mejor lugar para quedarse. Me gustaria que hubiera una hielera.
