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.

Spring Break 2011

This location is great for visiting the the sights. Our rooms were on the 5th floor and facing the train tracks that blew their horn many times during the night. A mircrowave would have also been nice to accompany the refridgerator that was in the room.

Nothing to write home about.

It was nothing to get excited about but for the money in that location - 2 blocks from the "MALL" it was a deal and the room was clean - the staff friendly.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel breakfast was $14.95 each - That would have been over $60.00 for us! So we walked the 1/2 block to McDonalds - breakfast for 4 - $12.00!

Avg Getaway

our 2nd stay here and it was not as nice as the 1st. The location was EXCELENT for the National Mall attractions and sight seeing. After hours of walking and checking out D.C., the room was comforatable to return to. The area around the hotel seemed safe for walking day or night. After that, everything was average at best. Room renovation made the hotel noisy and congestated. I would recomend, for locations alone, but do more research if your interest are outside the national mall attraction.

Great location, clean hotel

The hotel is in a great location to visit Smithsonian museums and other D.C. must-see spots. One and a half blocks from the L'Enfant metro stop, which can be taken from Reagan National airport. For the location, the price is excellent. The hotel isn't the nicest in the area, but for the price, it's not bad. If you're interested in night-life, stay somewhere around Dupont Circle instead.

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.

ppo service and value

When we walked into our room, an ironing board was set up and blocked our way in. The ironing board would not close and was in our way. it took staff 2 days to take it away. The temperature in the room was miserable. The AC was in the corner of the room. If you sat near it, you were freezing and yet if you moved away, you were hot. The room was also humid for some reason. I do not know if it was the AC or something else. The room was very expensive and I expected better service all around. We were treated an an inconveience when we had a questions about tours and parking. Also, the hotel is right next to a train track where the train blew it's whistle EVERYTIME it came by-day and night. Impossible to sleep all night with that noise. On the bright side, the beds were very comfortable!
