Great DC Hotel!

I was shocked to book this room last minutes at such a great rate and feared it was going to be in a terrible location and filthy. To my pleasant surprise, this hotel could not have been better. It is extremely charming and its history is felt without it being dingy. It has been well kept and quite immaculate even. Rooms aren't spacious, but quite adequate for travel. The location is great being walking distance from Metro Center underground stop, which is convenient for most DC locations. We even skipped the Metro and walked to the Holocaust Museum which brought us right by a lot of the heart of DC. I highly recommend this hotel. Also, we arrived first thing in the morning after a cross country red eye flight and the front desk was extremely accomidating.

Unexpected Dream Stay

This place looked exceptional from its website, but it went beyond the highest expectations. The value was good, and it has old-charm character beyond anything you can find for its price. This used to be a sketchy neighborhood, but since the Convention Center and CATO institute moved across the street (and corporations such as Microsoft moving next door) it makes this a close walk to almost everything on our agenda -- the White House and Chinatown are both just minutes to walk to, as well as most museums of interest to us (Newseum -- which is great fun for the family, Spy Museum, and many of the Smithsonians). On top of all this, the dinner was top-rate, the bar fun (with weekend live entertainment) and they even serve a high-tea, which my daughter will surely enjoy when she gets older.

The Newseum was FAR better than we expected, so we went back a second day! (you get two days for each ticket). The Capital Building Tour is far better than the White House, which is self-guided. Both require tickets from your Congressman so plan at least six months in advance.

Loved it!

Henley Park at Washington, DC was great in every aspect. The location was fantastic.. just a short cab ride to all the major land marks and walking distance to other places of interest. The hotel was very clean, cozy, and the staff was very accomodating and helpful. During my next visit to DC, I will certainly stay at the Henley park again!

Charming and a good location

The staff was very friendly and very helpful. The lounge/restaurant was charming with a good atmosphere. Although the rooms are small because it is an historic building they are very nice and well kept.

Marrakesh has Morrocan cuisine, a seven course meal great for sharing with a group of friends. Also, China town is not far, several blocks walk or a short cab ride.

What a find!

If you like hotels with class and character, this is the place to stay. Very near the convention center and Union Station but the real joy is inside. Very nicely appointed spacious rooms. Great staff and beautiful lobby, lounge and bar - all reflective of the 1920-1930s. Wonderful staff, too.

Unbeatable location for the price.

This is a beautifully maintained hotel on the registry of Historic American Hotels. The staff is exceptionally curteous and helpful and the location worked well for my vacation agenda. I was in DC to see the museums and sites. A great value.

I like many visitors was there to take advantage of the museums of the Smithsonian. These are a short drive from the hotel and since museum entrance is free, reasonable taxi costs were very justifiable.

No worries

First time to D.C. and got a great deal on flight and hotel stay over the Memorial Day weekend. This initially made me somewhat skeptical as to what I could expect from the accomodations, but this hotel exceeded my expectations. Great staff, great location, room was decent size, clean, comfortable, relatively quiet (you have to remember that you are in a big city). I was absolutely satisified with everything. I would stay there again in a heartbeat and would definitely recommend it to anyone!
