5 star my butt

Day one: had to wait three hours to get into the room; view was not breathtaking. Day two: no ice machines must wait half an hour for service to bring it up. Day three: walked to a room I had never been to by staff where I supposedly left my bag...not my bag, not my room. Day four: fortyfive minutes for ice Day five locked out of the room. Couldn't get back in for an hour. Day six locked out again...too pi**ed off to ask for ice.

Great deal at a great hotel!

Wonderful hotel--rooms and facilities very nice. Business center closes at 7--problematic but staff was willing to help me out. Food was very tasty--coffee shop part was the only restaurant open on Monday night, however. Fine dining is Tues. thru Sat.

You need to take a cab to the Mall and other Capitol highlights, since this is down by the wharf. The rooms overlooking the river made this problem less upsetting.

Pleasant Getaway in the City

The hotel and ambience was spectacular. I would not recommend for families, more for couples and business travelers.

Cheated!!

Very nice Hotel. Very nice staff. I paid for a suite but was given a regular room (~$360 per night difference). They did not refund me the full price difference. This totally soured an otherwise very classy hotel. I would stay here again because it is a very nice hotel, but I would be much less trusting of the "we will take care of it later" line.

Not for those with poorly lined pockets.

First visit for me in Washington. Typical sightseeing frenzy. Lots of walking and lots of sore muscles and aching body. If money is no object, then you'll love it here. This is a beautiful hotel, BUT extremely pricey. If you don't have lots of money do not venture forth. With room service fees, tax and gratuity every meal is a big deal. Concierge, front desk, housekeeping and room service personnel were all very curteous and effective. Couldn't recommend to my friends since I don't travel in circles such as this.

Take advantage of the Kennedy Center for the Arts. We took in the "Shear Madness" interactive play and had a very enjoyable time. The KC Cafe had good food at reasonable prices. Great night out.
