wonderful experience!!

This is a beautiful, modern hotel with great staff members and a fantastic location. The rooms were a little smaller than I had expected, but uniquely decorated and luxurious. Staff was friendly, professional, and very accommodating. Loved this hotel, I would definitely stay here again. Great location, so many restaurants near by, plus the metro station is very close.

Excellent value and super chic

There's so much gorgeous modern eye candy at this place, from the elevated fireplace when you walk in to the hanging egg chairs. And the room I had was amazing--the design felt like a small-space award winner. The staff is incredibly gracious and willing to help. Meals are expensive. I'd do breakfast elsewhere but if you're in a pinch, this is great. Dinner is sublime, and I'm saying that as a Californian who's choosy about sushi. It's not in the middle of Dupont or K St, but it's not tooo far, and in DC it's not hard to get around. And it is fairly close to the White House.

Don't miss the stellar Southern cooking at Georgia Brown's restaurant. The food and service were outstanding, portions generous, and prices good.

Nice but currently a work in progress.

The hotel is perfectly located if you're trying to stay close to the Convention Center. The restaurant is delicious. Only issue is that when we visited in March 2014 they were completing quite a bit of work on different floors of the hotel and it only 1 or 2 of the elevators were available for use which made wait times long.

Out of the Blue

This hotel was selected pretty much at random with some consideration in location, price and reviews. It's in tight surroundings with little open areas but laid out well with the available space. Clean with adjoining restaurant but the breakfast prices are higher than average. I would stay there again.

Great for a weekend getaway!

Hotel & staff are nice. The restaurant downstairs was great. Wish the weather was nicer so we could enjoy the roof top pool with the bar!
