Great location

Didn't spend too much time in the hotel outside of our room and even that was minimal because our hotel was so close to everything we wanted to do! Subway stop across the street took us to the zoo, two blocks from the national mall and smithsonian museums, also able to walk to union station and the White House.

Wonderful stay

We were greeted at the curb when our taxi arrived, The employee brought our bags to the lobby and waited while we checked in and then he took us to our room. Our room was on the fourth floor and it was well decorated and very quiet. All the personnel were very helpful in giving us directions to different places to see and places to eat. This hotel is within walking distance to museums and the Smithsonian. We used a Hop on Hop off bus to move around the city. We would stay there again.

fantastic long weekend getaway

We arrived earlier than the check-in time and our room was ready -- great start! The room was very spacious, well decorated, comfortable bed & furnishings and the hairdryer was powerful and hot. Location -- great; Close to a couple of Metro stations & many museums & restaurants. The icing on the cake was the free morning coffee and the "wine hour" in the evening. The staff was extremely accommodating and courteous. The courtesy umbrella in the room came in very handy, too. They seemed to think of everything that we needed.

Great location

Hotel is very close to the best attractions and restaurants, but far enough to "get away" from it a little. Rooms are a bit small so beware. We scrunched 5 into a one bedroom suite. Wine reception at 5pm each day is nice..but very loud in the entry way. Bellmen are very friendly and helpful

Best of Both Worlds

In one direction, this hotel is within an easy walking distance to the National Mall, monuments, Smithsonian, and US Capitol; in the other direction you can be in the food and entertainment zone of gallery place/china town in only a few steps. And if metro rail is your preferred means of travel, the gallery place station is out the front door and across the street. For history buffs, it is fun to stay in this historic building that used to be the Tariff office and also served as a hospital for wounded union soldiers during the civil war. The soaring ceilings and marble hallways are enough to set your imagination free. On top of all the history, luxurious amenities have been added and are fine if you are into that, but at some point, you have to concede that you are still spending the night in what used to be a government office building. Our bathroom door was a sliding pocket door with no lock, so if you are staying with a business partner, beware. The A/C seemed to have a hard time cooling the room with its huge ceilings. The room was very clean and the housekeeping staff was amazing. They offer a 5 dollar a day voucher if you decline housekeeping services. Which we did because we don't care for folks coming in with our stuff anyway. Hotel has bar and restaurant on site but it is more economical to ease down to all the eating places in the neighborhood. Also, there is a convenient corner store nearby with all your basic needs. (Sodas that don't cost six dollars each, etc.) We had a great time. I would think this hotel would be best suited for adult travelers, as children might become board with this particular place.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take a short walk to the corner store on the first evening or morning of your stay and stock up on a case of cola and some bread, muffins, and other snacks. It's nice to have the non ten dollar dessert or breakfast item in the room with you all week!

Fantastic location for all activities

Wonderful stay from our room being ready early to our departure. Gracious and attentive staff with many amenities from wine tasting, wi-fi, and fabulous on site restaurant. Well appointed and exceptionally comfortable room. Across the street from the National Portrait Gallery and less than 4 blocks from the National Mall and the National Gallery of Art. And a short cab ride from the Kennedy Center. Our short weekend getaway was perfect.

Exceptional style. Delicious food and very comfy

Location is absolutely perfect. In DC it is great to walk and use the metro, so location can sometimes be less of a priority. We visited on this occasion in the end of March and it poured, very thankful that we were right in the mix. The portrait museum is directly across the street. Poste, the on site restaurant was delicious. Great and breakfast and a Bloody Mary bar, reasonably priced room service and a great experience overall.
