Excellent

Great hotel, great location. Hotel Monacos are always good and good value. Only negative I can think of is that the restaurant needs restrooms on the main floor.

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.

Hotel is o.k. Overpriced for the value. The location is good but the hotel is not a warm or friendly place.

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.

Good

Staff was great, room was comfortable. It was a b-day and they brought up wine and chocolates unannounced. Very good location for going out on foot.

Great location. Average hotel and amenities. Nothing special but I would stay there again just for the location.

Good location but significantly overpriced

Decent Washington DC location however, Significantly over priced for what it was. Charging €500 per night even for a Capital City is a bit much.

Great Place for Business

Hotel stay was great the restaurant, Poste, is incredible. The free Hotel Happy Hour is a plus and the staff was great. No place to change after checking out though, the bathroom was very busy and cramped. Great location and puts you right in the DC mix.
