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 Outdated lobby has the old musty smell.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.

Better than Expected

Expected worse so pleasantly surprised. Staff very friendly and helpful when i got in late and room threadbare but absolutely clean. True some challenges: no outlets save the one that already had light and fridge (so unplugged fridge), no shampoo, no fitness center (one across street for a fee), but for $175 a night and locale, pretty awesome.

Good location bad not much else

The location is great, walking distance to all the major sites to see in the area but the room is dinky. Everything felt cheap, unclean, and not well maintained. Definitely not what you expect for that much money even with the location. Wallpaper peeling etc.

Great location, but pretty run-down hotel

This hotel is very centrally located, and the lowest price in the area, however you get what you pay for (or don't pay for). The rooms were small and run down. There is a cafe attached as well as a bar, so food is accessible at almost any time. However the bar is noisy when you walk into the lobby since it is attached. Perhaps I just haven't stayed in many 2 star hotels, but this place was pretty run-down in general. That being said, everything was functional.

Budget travel

Reserved for 3 people, two beds and got exactly that. Nice surprise was the second full bathroom in the connected rooms. Quiet enough in the night. Not great air-conditioning, but the weather was cool enough anyway. Close to all relevant sights and plenty of restaurants nearby. The hotel provided a list of restaurants and other useful locations like pharmacies.
