Sub Par hotel for the money

My wife and I travel frequently for our jobs. We know a fleabag from a five star. The only thing going for this hotel is the location. It is dirty! The main hallways between the rooms are filthy, the rooms are filthy. All the little things that could be easily fixed, look to be ignored by Mgmt and Maint. The on-site restaurants are mediocre at best. At an average of $200/night, this hotel is seriously lacking.

Not home but quite acceptable

The location was excellent. The price was acceptable. You need to be aware that parking is available with easy access to they hotel lobby but it costs an additional $30/day. We found that it was worth the extra for the location of the hotel.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

This hotel is with in walking distance of all of the National Monuments. Some are a pretty good hike away, but it is better than trying to find a parking spot near the Mall.

Great Location, Nice Hotel

We were very pleased with this hotel for the price. It's very close to a metro stop and within walking distance of many Washington attractions. The rooms were decent-sized and clean, and the staff was helpful. We did hear a train whistle nearby.

$260 and no shower or hot bath!

My worst hotel stay ever. Much worse than my penny pinching student days, cause then you could still shower down the hall. First room had wet carpet and pile of dirty towels in the bathtub. when I came back they were still there. They said they would "move me" to another room. I had to move myself. Next morning, on my way to a breakfast meeting, discovered no water in shower, bathtub only had cold. The managers only offer was for a free breakfast. I had to go to my breakfast meeting unshowered.

VERY GOOD LOCATION FOR WALKING TO MUSEUM

Long waits for elevators. Parking expensive ($30 per night on their property) Not enough hot water. TV kept changing its own channel, maybe TV remotes were crossing from room to room.
