Pleasent Conference Trip

The room was much smaller than I though but was able to fit 4 people in the 1 king bed and sofa pullout, comfortably. The wall outlets did not work but there were plenty outlets on the lamps. The staff were also very polite and pleasant.

Washington, District of Columbia

This hotel was very nice. The rooms were spotless and comfortable. The staff was very professional and courteous. The location was ideal. The Metro was literally a 4 minute walk right outside the door on the same side of the street. A 7-Eleven and Five Guys are right outside the door. A Wendy's and McDonald's are a very short walk nearby. Quiet neighborhood charm in the big city. BG2 Gastonia, North Carolina

Friends birthday trip

The hotel room was very nice. It was better than I expected for the price I paid. I was in the area for a friend's birthday and the hotel's location was close by. Only thing I would say is the beds looked somewhat small for supposedly queen sized beds. Overall the hotel was great.

You are paying for the Metro Access

This is very bare bones and small. The bed was very firm, but bedspread was way too thin. On the plus side, the Staff is very nice. I thought the cleanliness was fine, until I opened the bed to find a long black hair on the pillow! Ew. I would probably stay at the nearby Hilton Garden Inn in the future. Comparable metro access and price, but next to the grocery store and much larger, nicer rooms.

Work Trip

The first room was facing the train station and there was no blind on the window so I could be seen by all passersby. I requested a change in room.

Business/Pleasure Trip

Pulling in at 2 am wasn't how we planned, but the staff there couldn't have been more welcoming. They made sure we were able to get in our room to rest as quickly as possible. The next morning, we woke up and had breakfast in the cafe. It was really tasty. We walked about 5 miles or so that afternoon and the location of the hotel to the Metro was perfect. After a day full of walking, you don't want to have to walk more to get to your room. We will definitely book this hotel on our next trip.

Excellent Staff, Lovely rooms, Perfect Location, but Non-working Wifi and Parking Prices are Steep

I have absolutely no complaints about the staff or the hotel itself. The rooms and staff are excellent. However, our room was on a corner of the building, which is why I think our wifi signal was so weak. I was unable to use the internet at the hotel until the night before we left (we'd complained about this twice and the staff were really trying to work on the issue). We got a great deal for our room. However, $33 a day for parking pretty much turned our great deal into an average price for the stay. Overall we were very pleased with our stay and were happy to find a hotel in D.C. that was right next to the Metro!
