Pricey Parking...

We stayed for two nights and the first night had to change rooms from a king to a queen bed in the middle of the night b/c the A/C did not work. Parking was very expensive at $38 plus tax ($42) and needed to pick up vehicle by 2 pm, otherwise $5 an hour after that! Most hotels give you 24 hours...

Plush beds

This hotel is next to a homeless hangout, but the beds were very comfortable and the lobby was nice. Besides the surrounding poverty, the location was great being right downtown.

Good Hotel in Great Location

We had a delightful room. The hotel staff was helpful getting a Mount Vernon tour for us and helping us get dried off after getting caught in the rain. The only inconvenience was that only one elevator was working due to a storm a week before. Orbitz found us a very good deal on a three day stay during our honeymoon.

The White House tour has to be arranged through your senator or representative. It was a pleasant walk although we got caught in the rain.

Location, location, loction

Just a few minutes walk away from all the places you want to see in DC. No need for a car or taxi. They have a Starbucks, restaurant and bar on site. But there are also plenty of fare options in any direction from Thai to Indian, Italian to steak & chops, soup to sushi. They even provide loaner umbrellas should the need arise. Ask for Simone at the front desk should you need any assistance regarding your accommodations.

Enjoy the street scape on your way to the museums, monuments, parks, gardens and venues. .6 of a mile to the White House and less than 2 miles to the Capitol. All the while, your head on a swivel. Enjoy.

Upon arrival found out that you have to pay for parking $33 per day and internet access $12.95 per day. Hotel is already extremely expensive would be nice if they could include these 2 features in the price. Other than that it was a good stay.

Not bad, but the location may cause concern

The hotel was fine. It was clean & the staff was super friendly. However, visitors need to be aware that it is directly across the street from a park that is a favorite of homeless people. I probably would not stay here again for that reason.

The hotel was old and need updating. Some of the furniture was missing knobs and very worn. The hallways were narrow and dark. The location was perfect but I would definatley choose another hotel for my next trip
