I did not try the restaurant on site but did...

i came here Memorial weekend with some friends for a birthday and it was a decent experience. It was 3 of us and I thought it was with 2 queen beds but definitely looked more like a full to me. Perhaps I didn't look at my booking close enough? We asked for a cot but it was very springy and...

I had a wonderful experience with this hotel. Arrived at the hotel around 9am after a red-eye and was thrilled to be able to check-in to an actual room. The gentleman at the front desk was very friendly and gave excellent advice for a breakfast place (Abe's Waffle House). In my experience, every hotel employee was warm, friendly, and very...

This is a recently updated hotel near the mall and White House. There is a big atrium meeting area plus meeting rooms and ballrooms for conventions. The rooms are very comfortable. Hotel staff are excellent. The presidents restaurant has interesting photos but service is only fair.

I was recently here for a conference and we had rooms here. When I checked in, I was treated with the utmost respect and courtesy, and was actually given an upgrade (without asking for one). I was given a mini-suite, which had a separate sitting area from the bedroom and two flat screen televisions. Everything was clean, the room smelled...

Good service, adequate rooms, nice view of the Capitol Building. I was there during the great snow storm and the staff were very accommodating. Room service was not great but that's to be expected. The best thing about it is the location. I was able to get to my conference easily on foot, and was just minutes from the Mall...
