Good location in Foggy Bottom

The room was so tiny that it was impossible to move in it! The mini bar was not stocked and the dresser drawers were falling off. Will not stay here again in spite of location. Was not worth what I paid for it.

Rather old than "historic"

Travelled to D.C. for business and was pleased with the service and location. My late-night checkin was quick and easy although I probably got the last and shabbiest room that night: Right next to the elevator on the second floor, facing a noisy backyard (AC/restaurant fans running all night). Overall, the room was still comfortable and so was the bed. While some of the furniture and the carpet were a bit outdated and needed fixing, the bathroom was large and had a window as it was facing the same backyard. It had a nice selection of cosmetic products, plenty of towels, and even a bathrobe to use during your stay. The dead space behind the elevator was turned into a kitchen, giving the room even more space. It had a sink and a minibar, separated from the bedroom by a curtain. The sounds of such an old building were a bit scary though. There is the elevator passing by, you can hear footsteps and bathroom sounds from upstairs and the hallway etc. All in all fine for one night, maybe not longer. Stay away from room 205 if you want to avoid the noise from outside. The backyard-facing rooms might still be a better option as they seem more quiet provided you stay on one of the higher floors. The front faces the busy Pennsylvania Ave but overlooks a cute little park.

Cozy and romantic boutique hotel

Warm and friendly staff and very quiet and cozy quarters - an antique character but with very modern facilities - sometimes hotels described as having "historical charm" are really crumbling buildings with a veneer of remodeling -- that was absolutely not the case here, it was as comfortable and modern and tidy as you could wish for, with new and strong furnishings that put you in mind of a past era. Lots of amenities - electronic safe in room, complete cash minibar, coffee maker, and fridge, Bath & Body Works toiletries, hair dryer, robes, bottled water awaiting on arrival, really good shower, tons of feather pillows, room service, flat-screen TV, wifi (a bit weak in our part of the building, but yes, it was there), a restaurant downstairs, everything from the front door inwards absolutely sparkling clean. Top-shelf housekeeping. In-room spa services available for a fee. Valet parking for a daily fee. So cozy and private we never noticed that anyone else was even there. Close to Founding Farmers cafe (make a reservation!!), Baja Fresh and Starbucks less than two blocks away - half-a-mile to the White House and about a mile to most of the monuments. If you have good walking shoes you can leave your car parked all weekend. Check-in and check-out was easy-peasy. We had a delightful stay. Would stay there again and would recommend it, certainly. The only thing I could point out as a negative was that there was street noise (sirens, garbage trucks) from our room, but that was not a major hassle - it was not constant but did show up sometimes. If you are up for a quiet, cozy, romantic, luxurious and discreet small hotel this is a great place to stay. Would not recommend if you are looking for a party atmosphere or something close to a lot of night life or a club scene, the neighborhood seemed too quiet for that.

Starbucks a couple of blocks away saves time and money at breakfast; it's on the way toward the monuments as well.

Just what we expected

The hotel was well located, well appointed and well-described. It is a small Europen-style boutique hotel in NW, around the corner from K Street and its "power restaurants" like the Prime Rib. Rooms were small but well appointed. The staff was especially friendly and helpful. The bar was a delight - very international in feel and clientelle.

The Connector Bus stop was across the street - for a $1 fare you can get to Union Station or connect up with other routes or metro stations quite easily. Metro station was a short 3 blocks away.

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.

Nice hotel and good value for money

I was uncertain about booking this hotel, because it was about half the price of the other hotels in the area. However, I am delighted to say that I really enjoyed my stay, and that it is well worth the money. The rooms aren't large, and the bathroom is a little cramped. However, the bed was extremely comfortable, and the room had everything one needs. My only complaint was that the was quite a lot of traffic noise -at about 04:30 - trucks reversing etc., but that is just a function of being in the middle of city.
