Great Location

Location of hotel was great but rooms were cold. There was no control in room for heating. So we called front desk and were told that the heating was off and they will turn it on. But we didn't feel any difference. Very uncomfortable stay.

Average hotel

Nothing really stands out apart from its location, which is excellent. I would say it is good value for money on that account.

meets expectation

Having read the previous reviews I expected the hotel version of a Motel 6...,but combined with a great location near the Mall. I was not disappointed. It would have been unsuitable for a business trip. No table top outlet for computer or battery charger, for example. No business center, either. But parking at $16 for 24+ hours was only two blocks away.

Location over glamour

I booked this hotel for a solo 4-day vacation in DC. I could tell from the hotel website that it wasn't very fancy, but it was the closest thing to the Smithsonian Museums and within short walking distance to the National Mall. The rooms are very small, but since this is a 100 year-old hotel in the middle of a bustling city, I wasn't surprised. The hotel staff was friendly and there are a couple of restaurants and a pub on the ground level. It is a bit pricey, but you save a lot on cab fare if you're willing to walk 5 or 6 blocks in any direction to get to most of the tourist sites, bars, restaurants and Metro stations. Decor in the rooms are very dated, but I was surprised that the bathrooms were pretty modern. My room had a nice tiled shower. I didn't expect to be blown away and knew in advance that the hotel is very outdated, but it was worth it because of the location. There is only one AC vent in the room and very little lighting.

For nightlife, head to Penn Social just a few blocks away or try to catch a band in the basement level of the Hamilton Hotel about 4 blocks away.

Excellent location

Minutes from White House and to public transportation, make things very easy to go around Very friendly and nice staff, ready to help. AC was little too high for a day on lower 70s but not big deal. They could do better price or at least include breakfast within the fare but again no big deal. I would certainly stay there again!

Perfect Location

This hotel is located is great. The staff was marvelous and the rooms were comfortable and clean. It is an old hotel so remember that. There were no electrical plugs in the bathroom which made it difficult to dry your hair.

Great stay.

Amazing location, room was as expected for 2 stars - kind of dull and drab. Although there was an ironing board and hair dryer which was a plus! I found staff helpful and they stored my luggage for free after check out.

great location BUT .....

great location, BUT this is a place MUCH needing renovations: can't control the AC via individual rooms (each floor is controlled all together), rooms are small, bathroom is SUPER dated ... doesn't look like anything has been updated in 50 years including the bedding .... can't believe this place was even listed on a prominent booking site, have always had great experiences in the past on any hotel listed on this site

When it's old, it is OLD!

This 100 year old hotel shows its age. Outdated lobby has the old musty smell. The room is average size, but you can not control the air conditioning. It was warmer than I like it. No spare electrical outlets, had to unplug the refrigerator. The outlets are old, and would not hold the weight of my charger plug. Had to tie it to the lamp cord to hold it in the socket. Beds were nothing special. Bath towels were the quality of an inexpensive hotel. Old style small cake of soap, and NO SHAMPOO! The only good thing was the location. Walk to everywhere.
