Better than most

The location is excellent in terms of accessing The Mall. The room was clean; the air conditioning worked, which was good, considering the heat & humidity. The breakfast for room service was late by 15 minutes, which was frustrating, since the reason for wanting room service in the first place was a tight schedule that morning and not wanting to deal with the uncertainty of a sit-down meal. The pool is pleasant, but two out of the three times we used it in the evening, there were no towels. When I asked the hotel pool attendant for more towels, the first seemed put out; and the second was able to find just two towels for the two of us. The cleaning staff, when we encountered them, were very polite and thorough. All in all, it was a good stay, not perfect, but good.

Dining tip: In Hotel

The hotel has two eating options, both of which were ok. I wish we had been more aggressive in finding other lunch and dinner eating options, which seem to be well-hidden in that part of DC. They're there, but a person really has to hunt for them. The concierge was not very helpful when we asked for a dinner place that served good salads. He told us we would have to travel to find that. In retrospect, he could have offered other meal ideas for closer places.

Great location

The location is great, within 2 blocks of a Metro stop, the Air & Space Museum, and several blocks walking distance of the Library of Congress and Capitol Hill. Good value. The Express breakfast, which opens at 6:00 a.m., provides a good place to get breakfast for those who want to get an early start.

Walk and see it all

This is the second year in a row we have stayed here. Ideal location, only a block from Air and Space Museum, within walking distance of any museum or building located near the mall. Had breakfast in the Capitol while waiting for our tour to begin at 9:10 A.M., toured the Capitol and spent the rest of day in the American History Museum at almost the other end of the mall. There is a McDonald's less than a block away and a couple of deli's in the building on 6th street across from the Hotel, if you want a change from the choices in the Hotel. Only a block and a half away from the Metro stop. Bus or trolley stops are nearby if you don't want to walk. Sometimes noisy with kids but then aren't we glad the kids are seeing Washington DC too,

Great place to stay in DC

Everyone was very pleasant and helpful. The only complaint I have is the poor directions to get out of the parking area. We drove for 10 minutes to find the exit to get out of the underground parking. The hotel and staff were great.

Not "Great", "not bad", will stay again.

Close enough to everything to make it a walking tour at the right time of the year, when not to warm and humid. CVS, Micky D's, blimpy, and starbucks are right there. And its easy to metrorail right from Reagan to the hotel. Good value for the money.

Excellent Location

I really enjoyed the location of the hotel and the hotel staff. While I was there I attended Howard University's Graduation. I also took in a site seeing tour of the White House, Museums, Washington mounment, George Town, Arlington National Cementary etc. (Wonderful) The staff in the Bar area lounge were very slow on serving. Did not enjoy the lack of service in the Bar area. Staff wasn't very friendly. Compared to previous trips I've taken it was still a very pleasant trip. The room service was great. I would stay at the Holdiay Inn for the good location.

Cheats

Rooms were nice. Close to Metro stop. Not much in this area to do, it was in the office building district. Dishonest to us about parking cost also added charges to bill that were not ours. Staff could seem to do nothing with out a manager until we got angry. Will not stay here again.
