some of staff in front desk are really aggressive, when you ask her where is the historical site, he will probably tell you in a unpleasure manner.

Amazing experience, great location!

We had the best time at this hotel! We arrived earlier and they let us check in before. We did have an issue with a small leak, but they moved us right away into a different room and gave us coupons for free breakfast. The location was PERFECT and everything value+ price was a 5 star. I def. would come back there!

New Year

Me and friends were in town for New Years mostly to party. This hotel was great because of its location and the price. Very nice hotel and was walking distance to everything especially the nite clubs. The only problem I had was that the bathroom is tiny and it would of been nice if my room had a fridge. Other than that it was a great hotel and would stay there again

Terrific staff

We were 4 women in 2 rooms. The staff was courteous, friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfy. Would recommend the hotel's breakfast buffet.

Make use of the Metrorail or taxi's when possible because it saves time to use for the many attractions available.

Great Location for Tourists

This hotel is in a perfect location for tourists who are interested in walking around Washington, DC. It's less than a 10 minute walk to the White House, and 10-15 minutes more to the Capitol and Smithsonian museums. The hotel is clean and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. An added feature is the Whole Foods store a block away.

For the money and health conscious tourists, we found eating the heavier meal in one of the museum cafeterias, followed by a small dinner at Whole Foods, was the perfect way to go.
