The only positive thing about this hotel is location and that's it. Small rooms, bad interior, noisy, uncomfortable and many more. You have basin in the room only. There are so many good options on that location.

You can definitely store your luggage with them after check out - I did the same thing on my last day in DC. I had an afternoon Amtrak but wanted to explore the city a bit more and they were more than happy to hold my bags... More
