Perfectly relaxing

Checking in was fast and efficient. My room was a good size and the renovations made the room lovely. I ate at the bar and ordered room service. I received great service and food/beverage from both.

Elegant comfort close to the sights

The room was an amazing surprise: there was a mini-kitchenette with granite counters, plush sofa and huge ottoman, large-screen HD t.v., 2 large picture windows, rainfall shower, comfy bed set with 800 thread count sheets that were like BUTTAH! There was a little street noise, but hey, it's D.C. The staff was very nice and efficient. I would stay again.

Good for the money

Overall, you get what you pay for. While this isn't the most glamorous hotel in Washington DC, it fits the needs of a budget-type of family. Nice and clean, but rooms could be a little larger.The best thing is the location. Right in the heart of the city with all major attractions within walking distance.
