A welcomed change from the cookie-cutter

Great receptive staff. Outside decor is historic in nature. Inside is uniquely decorated. Rooms were clean, but hallway on floor appeared a little dark - not sure if due to lack of lighting or color schemes? Expensive as far as hotels go, but in comparison to nearby hotels, it was the best bargin at 50% the price.

Attended a business conference and was happy to return to a clean quiet, comfortable room. Everything I needed was within walking distance and the staff was very accomadating and friendly. I enjoyed my stay immensely and would gladly stay there again. It will be among my top choices next time.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Quaint shopping is just across the the street, great ice cream parlor. Go across the street for supplies like beer wine , snickers and the like. Much much cheaper than mini bar supplies, ie $4.00 for a snickers in the room $.99 for one across the street. $9.00 for a beer in the room, $8.79 for a six pack of Peroni across the street.

Great Location

This hotel is definitely for those who already know the DC area. The only draw back was no concierge. Also the room contained no information on the area or the metro. so it was best if you were a seasoned dc guest. the room was spacious and the staff was great, very friendly.

Nice location for the reasonable price

We visited D.C. for multiple purposes, including attending the information session of Gerge Washington Univ. This hotel is conveniently located in a walking distance to the GWU, White House, and a few blocks to Metro Station. The room was clean and cozy, and has a separate eat-in-kitchen-type of space. Since we stayed during Easter holidays, a lot of nearby restaurants and stores were close, and we couldn't take full advantage of this hotel, but still had a great time.

Two blocks away by the Farragut West metro stop is Pret, an organic sandwich/salad place with great fresh food for lunch--and I'm a picky California eater! Fast and easy.
