Excellent stay!

Pleasantly surprised by our stay here! Its a bit out of town so we expected it to be a bit of a pain to get around but theres a metro station literally next door making it easy to get into the centre of town and to main shopping districts. Staff were pleasant and eager to help with any queries. We used the valet service who were all excellent although $33 a night adds a bit to the cost of the room. Dinner wise theres a Five Guys across the road which is highly recommended for a quick burger. We had breakfast in the hotel the first morning and were disappointed. It was overpriced and not to the standard we expected - given it was fairly empty suggests it wasn't a one off. Overall the stay was brilliant - staff were great - a 7-11, five guys and metro all next door made were major pluses. We will likely stay here again in future.

Five Guys across the road - its like an upmarket Burger King where they really do cook the burgers to order and you really can have it any way you want with all the free optional extras they include. Major plus is the bottles of malt vinegar for the salty chips to get a proper taste of 'home' away from home.

Excellent

Not only was out stay excellent, the staff made it even better. The human factor often makes or breaks a hotel. THIS hotel had staff that created a positive memory for us. The hotel doors opened and we smelled Fresia wafting out. What a welcome. Smiling staff at every turn. Desk clerk who is related to one of my Atlanta students?! what are the odds? Coffee barista made my 7am zombie turn into a live human again. NOMA metro stop just steps away down a clean and dry sidewalk. Yes, we are most satisfied

Location, location, location!!

Stated here on a weekend trip to see the caps play at the Verizon center. Location was Fabulous! The hotel is just a very short walk from the NOMA Galludet station, a blessing since it was cold and raining during our visit. Thanks to its close proximity to the metro all of DC was easily accessible. The hotel itself was lovely, clean, and quiet. The staff was very friendly and helpful. In addition to the bar, restaraunt, cafe in the hotel. There were also several quick places to eat in close proximity. We will definitely be returning!

Easy Access to Metro and Union Station

This is a wonderful hotel. It was clean, hotel staff was wonderful and best of all it was steps away from the metro and only one stop from Union Station. It is also very affordable.

NIce hotel and almost great location

Very clean rooms, personnel is friendly, but not helpful. Location is 15-20 min walk to the Union station or 1 stop on the subway, but if you want to walk immediate surrounding area is not nice at all. Food is fair. It well worth the money. Valet parking is $33 per night.

Economical Trip to DC

I was a little intimidated by the neighborhood, and massive construction going on right outside my window, but the room itself was very well designed for comfort at an affordable price. My priority was value and close to the Metro, and this hotel had both. The staff was very courteous and helpful. I was able to get to see every attraction on my list with very little effort being so close to the metro. I would have liked more meal options during the day. The restaurant was only open at night 5-10.

Great location for the Metro

The room was nice, once we were changed to one that had air conditioning. These things happen, but very inconvenient and we were not offered any discount. The staff was very nice and helpful otherwise. Metro location was great. Hotel was hard to get to and check in. It is a one way street on the diagonal. So for out of towners it took several tries to find a good way to get in. GPS could not locate at all. There is a small area to pull up to check in so we had to circle a few times until it opened up. It would be a maybe for a redo.
