Senior Couple's "Get Away"

We spent 4 nights, Main reason we chose this hotel was the location. This was our first visit to D.C. The mode of transportation that we used was the metro..easy and convient. We took the Metro from the airport, very easy and less money than taxi or shuttle. The first night the concierage booked us a night DC tour, very enjoyable ..got to "taste a little of DC", helped us to decide where we visit remainder of the trip, because there is so much to see and do in D.C. One good thing is there is no charge to visit the museums/monuments. We had a great view from our room on the 11th floor, facing Pennsylvania Ave.;our room was clean, loved the wonderful sott towels and pillows, the housekeepers were thorough, bathrooms were small, but met our needs since it was just the two of us. The pool area was nice, I sat in the courtyard one evening to read and very relaxing. The breakfast buffet was good, kind of expensive. Overall we had a great experience and would recommend this hotel.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

On your first day/evening try to fit a tour in, that way you can get a feel of where you want to return and spent most of your time, because there is so much walking, you need minimum of 4 days to visit main attractions.

uncomfortable and pretentious

The mattresses were the worst imaginable. The hot water was intermittent. The lobby was a zoo with marble floors. The parking was a nightmare. never again.

The hotel offers a perfect location along with family night movies, heated pool, & great breakfast. The dinner options were average, but the rest of the offerings and staff friendliness makes up for this.

Great location but...caveat emptor!

Overall, we really enjoyed our weekend stay. First, I will mention the pros. The location was absolutely excellent. It is within very close walking distance to all of the major attractions. The White House is two blocks away. The Metro Center subway station is just 2 blocks away. There are many restaurants and a pharmacy within close walking distance of the hotel as well as several higher-end shopping options in the immediate vicinity. There is a “well-known brand name” coffee shop in the hotel. The restaurant/breakfast area is also very nice. The breakfast buffet is expansive, delicious and reasonable for a large, big city hotel which is right in the heart of the Downtown Area. The staff was very prompt, thorough and courteous. The rooms were fairly nicely appointed. The off-season timing also made this hotel an exceptional value considering the usual rates. However, there were several cons. The biggest detriment is the small size of the rooms. If you are traveling as a family, especially with greater than 3 total members, this may not be the hotel for you. If this is your absolute choice, I strongly suggest you consider a suite. There is very little extra space around the beds and other furniture. We requested a crib which took up nearly all of the floor space in the room with the exception of just enough area to maneuver around the beds, dresser and desk. The microfridge comes stocked with beverages and leaves almost no additional space for your personal items. Part of the limited desk space is taken up by an automated snack center which is filled with very expensive items that I am certain few guests ever utilize. The extra space would probably be more useful for most guests. The room decorations, moldings and fixtures, while at one time were likely quite nice and luxurious, are now showing their age and wear and could benefit from a bit of renovation. The bathroom leaves no room for maneuvering. There is only one sink and only one person can be in the bathroom at one time to do anything. This creates a great deal of congestion and really slows down the morning and bedtime routine. The positioning of the bathroom fixtures and door makes it extremely difficult to assist children with bathing. There is also no exhaust fan which allows the room to become rather humid after several people take a shower. Finally, there are no microwaves available for use in the rooms which makes it challenging for families with babies to prepare food. All things considered, we very much enjoyed our stay at the hotel but do not feel that it quite deserves its 4 start rating; perhaps a 3 or 3.5 would be more appropriate. However, if location and convenience to attractions, entertainment, transportation and cuisine is your metric, the hotel would be an excellent choice. Conversely, if you are traveling as a family or group, you may wish to consider some of the things noted above and weigh your options carefully. We would likely stay here as a family again but only if we choose to splurge for a suite. ** NOTE: We actually stayed in January 2013 but the website did not provide '2013' as a year choice. **

Great location

This hotel is in walking distance to almost everything! We were able to walk to many locations including the White House, The Capital, Ford's Theater, The National Archives, and the American History and Natural History museums. The room was a little small, but very clean. The only downside would be that the concierge was not a lot of help. Overall, we had a great experience though. The Starbuck's in the Lobby was a huge bonus with VERY friendly baristas who remembered our coffee orders after a couple of days!
