Like many of the other reviewers I agree that this is an ideal location for a visit to DC. Close to many of the attractions that have already been mentioned that DC had to offer. This was my second trip to this hotel for the same event in town every year. An easy walk to Chinatown, Verizon Center and the...

Dear winerunr, Thank you so much for writing a review about our hotel and recognizing our amazing location. I appreciate your feedback on blackout drapes in your room. All of our rooms should have blockout drapes so if you can contact me and let me know what room you stayed so that I may personally check its condition, I would...

Rooms were very clean and generously stocked with towels, coffee and tea, Aveda products (for the ladies!), great sitting areas in the lobby, Starbucks attached, convenient parking garage. Highly recommend.

This hotel is in an excellent location. Surrounded by restaurants and within walking distance of many DC attractions. A bit expensive but I would stay here again for the location. Rooms are clean and decently decorated, and the room was fairly quiet. No free breakfast, but a mini fridge in the room so we could stock up on a few...

Certainly not a terrible hotel, but the room was overly underwhelming for the almost $300 price. The lobby was nice and everything was clean and modern, but the room itself was tiny and very bland. The bed was comfy and the shower good, but again, the boxy feeling of the room with almost bare white walls did not provide a...

Dear frank3355, Thank you for taking the time to write a review about our hotel. I appreciate your feedback regarding the great feel of the lobby; however, you were underwhelmed by our room design. Our rooms were renovated in neutral colors in order to appeal to any discoverer while the artwork is whimsical New Yorker cartoons in the bedroom and...

I stayed here on my own this past week. It was a very safe hotel and the staff was accommodating. They answered any questions I had and we're always polite. Check in was a breeze and my room was ready at 10 am like I requested. Room service was good and I liked that I got free wifi in my...

Stayed here for a few days for a business related trip and was pretty impressed with the hotel. Throughout our whole stay the staff was very friendly and helpful. Whether it be front desk, concierge, maid, bellman they all had smiles on their faces and truly wanted to be of service. We had a room with a king size bed...

First, the good: it's clean, the staff are friendly, the Internet was free, the fitness center was nice. The not so good: my room was in a back corner of the hallway. One of those where they seemed to just have some leftover space and squeezed in a room. The view was of another building. Water pressure in the shower...

Dear davidwats, Thank you for taking the time to write a review about our hotel. I truly appreciate your feedback about the room that you stayed while here last week. The '01 rooms are a bit differently configured but they are extremely quiet rooms - except that there was some construction going on in the building that day you stayed....

4 blocks from Gallery Place/Chinatown Metro stop. Several restaurants close and one, the Jefferson Bistro, open for breakfast, maybe lunch?) in the hotel with a very good buffet (although expensive in my opinion) . But then, I don't eat breakfast out very much. Room was new or newly renovated, very clean and updated. Really liked the noon check-out on Easter...

The location of this hotel is awesome. It is very close to two metro stations: "Gallery Place - Chinatown" is the closest and "Metro Center" is around 5 minutes walk. There are multiple locations to eat around the hotel and a "Walgreens" store on 7th and H St NW. The check-in process was quick. They could not accommodate our request...
