Great location for a stay in D.C.

Friendly, helpful staff, although some of them at the main desk had difficulty answering basic questions about directions, etc. There's a Starbucks in the hotel - very convenient!!

On the day of arrival, do not miss the three hour tour in lights starting at 7.30 p.m. One covers a lot in a short time and the plan for the next days become a lot easier.

Nice Location

This hotel is conveniently located a block away from McPherson Square Metro stop so it is easy to get around the DC area via metro. The hotel does overlook a park with some homeless people in it, but I never felt like I was in danger - even when walking at night. The issues I saw were that the rooms and elevators were small and the hotel charged $14/night per device if you wanted to use their wifi. They also charge $38/night to park your car as well. But I was satisfied with the location and service.

Noisy

Room was great but the noise of the town was terrible. Even on the tenth floor we had to have earplugs to sleep. Horns, sirens, people. A very noisy location. I will never stay here again because of the noise. I forgot to mention the night club across the street which was also very loud.

Great hotel, starbucks a plus!

This is a very nice hotel, with an excellent location and walking distance to the mall, especially white house and smithsonians on the NW side! Wonderful staff, room was small, and bed a little soft, but overall would recommend it!!

Great Value, but very noisy

Great hotel conveniently located just north of the white house. Stay would have been wonderful, but I was barely able to sleep from the constant sirens and honking throughout the night. The hotels proximity to a fire station, noisy park, and several night clubs created a perfect storm of noise outside our third floor window until almost 2am. If you are staying maybe a higher floor would be more peaceful.

Great Family Vacation

Hotel is older and is about to be remodeled in the next couple of months. We had a wonderful time. Concierge was great with suggestions. They gave us a list of favorite restaurants. We ate at 4 of them and all were exceptional.
