Not what I thought

Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. There was an issue getting into our room (the door lock was fried) the staff was very apologetic and offered me free breakfast and a bottle of wine. Location is good if you want to walk to all of the tourist attractions & the hotel bar is nice. I booked a deluxe room & was "upgraded" to an executive and couldn't believe how small the room was! I couldn't imagine what the deluxe actually looks like.... I stayed one night (not even 24hrs) and the parking fee was $53.00!!! Very disappointing and unnecessary. Overall the hotel was okay but I most likely will not stay there again.

furniture

The staff could not have been better. Great location easily within walking distance of Capitol etc. The room was OK, but the bed,table and chairs should all be replaced!

wonderful experience!!

Had such a Wonder experience at this hotel, staff was kind, professional and incredibly accommodating. Rooms are a little smaller than I expected, but was decorated and unique in style. Great location, so many resturants and stores in the immediate area. Would stay there again, and recommend it to anyone wanting a comfortable, affordable taste of luxury.

Modern property and great location

Would like to return in the summer, as they have a rooftop pool and bar that was closed during my stay.

Great Overnight in DC

The hotel staff was amazing! Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and decorated well. Free wifi. Free wine and appetizer hour. Discounted bike share usage. The ONLY complaint was that the bathroom needed a fan. Also, it was about 5 blocks from the Metro. Overall we LOVED it. We would definitely stay here again.

Great - totally recommend!

This hotel was great! The location was convenient and close to metro stops (McPherson Square and Farragut North). The hotel staff was extremely pleasant. The complimentary, daily wine hour made the stay even more fun. I would definitely stay here again. Highly recommend signing up for the Kimpton rewards program as well.

Carmine's Italian restaurant located in Chinatown was delicious! Food is served family style so be prepared for the regular sized serving to feed about 4 people!
