Nice hotel but...

This is a nice hotel with close proximity to the national mall. The room was very updated, modern and clean. However, we had a huge issue at night that was swept under the rug. Our AC would not stay on at night!! We would wake up sweating and very uncomfortable since the room was stifling. On our last day there, we voiced our concerns AGAIN and finally, someone at front desk recognized that there are motion sensors in the rooms and because of lack of movement (we were sleeping), the AC was not turning on!! No remorse or apologies for our discomfort. I feel this issue should have been resolved well before we ever stayed there since the front desk employee said the motion sensor should have been switched off prior to us staying there. I am still upset that we were tired and grumpy during the day because of an easily resolved issue at night that was not addressed. Also, be well aware that parking in their parking garage is $37/day!!!

Great location for a wonderful family trip

This hotel was perfect for accessing all of DC's sights. It is within walking distance to most sights, and it is only a block from the L'Enfant Metro station, providing access to everything else. The hotel restaurant was delicious. The only negative we found was that there were not a tremendous number of restaurants close by, other than McDonald's and Quizno's. While we ate at both of these (frequently), it would have been nice to have other, sit-down, options close to the hotel.

Fantastic location

If you want to do the Mall, this is a great place. Good buffet in morning & late night restaurant is good too. It is pricey, however, but better than the rest! Easy walk to L'Enfant Plaza Metro stop as well.

Great location, nice room

Excellent location, close to mall, museums, Capital, metro, a few restaurants. Friendly helpful staff. Loud trains, some noisy guests when we stayed. Very close to metro so easy to get around town, lots of cabs outside always. Never saw any undesireables around the immediate area. Police station a block away. Restaurants had great food but very very high prices. The whole area is overpriced on food and merchandise. Free newspapers, wish we had a microwave in the room. Site said it came with one but didn't.

Quick Business Trip

This hotel is in a great location for sightseeing and I would definitely recommend it for that. Its within walking distance from the metro, museums and even the top Capitol Hill sites! For a quick business trip, you might not be able to take advantage of the location.
