Location- good Price- good Comfortable- yes Service- decent. Over all, a nice place to spend the night. But what annoyed us was the fact that surcharges like car parking( which was too costly) was not mentioned when we booked the hotel online. That doesn't seem fair at all.

Excellent staff, pleasantly surprised by AMAZING food at the restaurant, seriosly the best French onion soup I've ever had, and the breakfast buffet is expensive But SO worth it - favorite item was the cinnamon apple crepes,...

Excellent location, clean updated rooms. However the desk staff was not helpful & when I called from airport as to which metro stop was closest they gave me incorrect metro by 3-4 stops. There is a bar & restaurant on site but food shuts down early so you will have to metro elsewhere or order in. Nothing but McDonalds near...

This place was perfect... Clean, friendly, and the location was spot on... walking distance to anything or go a block over to jump on the (Metro) train. Pool on roof was closed (Seasonal) but it was certainly hot enough for it. Little store in lobby- CVS and Mac Donald's 100 feet down the street... Has a Starbucks attached to hotel....

Came to D.C. for the science march on 4/22/17. Got there about 10 A.M. and they let me check in early! I was so thankful! The desk staff was so courteous. Both restaurants on premises had great food and the servers were amazing! I won't ever stay anywhere else when I come to D.C.!

The hotel is beautifully located to explore the area museums and memorials around the Mall (2 blocks away), it is also two blocks from the Metro. The staff is marvelous, friendly, attentive, helpful. The rooms are nice and large, so are the bathrooms. Our first night on the 8th floor (855) overlooked railroad tracks, which we did not notice until...

Danielle, Thank you for staying with us during your visit to our nation's capital. I am disappointed to hear about your experience with noise from the railroad tracks. Many guests do not report hearing them, and we do provide night kits for those who may be lighter sleepers. I am happy to hear that our staff and rooms were excellent...

The hotel was clean, comfortable and convenient to the National Mall. The staff was friendly, the food was decent in the restaurant and the location is easy walking distance to the Air and Space Museum. Our air conditioner was broken, but not a problem since the staff quickly responded and replaced the faulty unit within 30 minutes. Definitely recommend!

Everything about this hotel was very good. Clean room & bathroom, clean hallways, huge lobby, 2 restaurants, and access to the parking garage. One thing I didn't enjoy was the breakfast buffet(Eggs, Bacon, Sausage were totally under cooked) Pancakes, and fresh fruit were good. Totally enjoyed my stay for Easter weekend Fri-Sun.

This is an excellent hotel. The location, rooms and staff were all outstanding on my recent trip.
