Experience was very positive. Interestingly enough, the hotel boiler broke down and there was no hot water which caused many guests to complain. The staff was responsive, and very apologetic. While there was really nothing they could do the attitude of the staff really helped! I was really impressed!

Nice Location, Bad Plumbing

This hotel is in a convenient part of DC but my room had several plumbing problems. The toilet bowl was badly cracked and was leaking water on the floor. In addition, the toilet handle was broken and when flushed water ran and ran. Finally, shower and tap water was not hot, just lukewarm. The room had some pretty unimportant things in it like a yoga mat, but did not have a coffee maker, which I did not discover until I got up at 5:00 AM and had no coffee. This hotel needs to have better maintenance and amenities to be worth the price.

Super value

This hotel was as advertised. Nice, clean, convenient. But one of the nice surprises was how nice and staff was. Super friendly and very helpful. It's really nice when there is a live voice on the other side of that early morning wake up call! And the location is superb!!

Couldn't wait to check out

I booked this hotel based on the reviews on Orbiz.com and found it was rated a 4 star. We checked in after driving in from New York at approx midnight. We were poorly greeted by reception i could not understand what the front desk lady was saying because she kept covering her mouth when she spoke to us a party of 8. With that we were going to be charged valet for 2 cars because there were not anymore parking options. We had luggage for 8 and kept waiting for the porter then finally had to carry our own bags upstairs, which was a total hassle. We have stayed at kimpton hotels before and the treatment was far superior. we found this kimpton was what seemed like a apartment conversion, our reservation was messed up 2 rooms were not given balconies, and the front desk did not seem in anyway helpful other then telling up "our reservation did not include it" also we were supposed to have wifi included in our stay and again was told "it is not included" forwarding to the next morning we woke up to a jack hammer on the front street at 7am then afar a shower my parents & aunt with uncle were staying in room 409 - 408 and came knocking at my door telling me that there is a dumpster at their back window, also the supposed valet parking paid for parking the vehicles at the back of the hotel which can be seen past the dumpster. After this we check out the same day and moved into a proper 4 star hotel closer to the white house. I would NOT recommend staying in the hotel ever

Missed having coffee in the room--the toilet and tub were in a very small area--added on to the dressing area (Room 202) when you stepped out of the shower, you had to be careful not to step into the toilet. There was no tourist information in the lobby, you had to wait in line to ask staff, but they were more than accommodating. Otherwise, the room was very clean, the the staff was very professional-----it was a busy weekend in D.C. and we were lucky to get a hotel. Thank you.
