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

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.

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.

Good Vacation Spot

Good experience, felt safe. Enjoyed how close the Metro was to the hotel. Definitely a plus, especially if your a tourist. Only disadvantage was, if your reservation included breakfast you had to notify the hotel yourself. They were unaware it was included in your package. But great Location.

Great value, right on metro line.

The amenities at this hotel are ordinary, but the staff was very professional and helpful. The room was clean, and everything worked well. Great water pressure in the shower! The hotel is right on the red line of the metro, which is very convenient. We would certainly stay there again. They do charge about $30 per night for parking.

Washington Stay

The hotel was very accommodating for our needs. It's location was not considered to be great but we found it to be just right for us. The metro goes right to this hotel and we could easily get on and go the mall area with just one stop on the Red Line. It was very convenient and we enjoyed the restaurant as well. The staff was super helpful and we really appreciated their efforts. The price was fantastic and we got a super hotel. We would definitely stay here again!

right on metro line

This was a perfect location for me . It was right on Metro line and bus stop on the corner. It is about four blocks from Gallaudet college which is where my son goes. The staff was very helpful and the hotel is new and clean. The beds are very comfortable. There are lots of fast food and eateries around the hotel and the staff was helpful in recomending places to go and the best way to get there. The only thing I felt could be improved was that the hotel restraunt had a limited menu but the food was very good. Overall I would recomend this hotel . My whole experience in D.C. was great. It is a beautiful city all americans can be proud of. We took a city tour from Union Station which was a short ride on the metro to get to.

Great weekend in D.C.

This was our first trip to D.C. by train to meet family. The hotel was so convenient to Union Station and the Metro. It was a quiet location as well. We really liked everything about the whole hotel experience. It was just perfect for us. There are so many wonderful places to see for free in D.C., it is amazing. Just a few highlights for us were: National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, Library of Congress, White House garden tour (4 times a year), various sculpture gardens along the mall and the Natural History Museum. We did sight seeing for three days and had just a great time. We will certainly plan to do this again !
