Comfy

I love comfort when I am staying at a hotel. The beds, the bathrooms and the décor are all reminiscent of a cozy getaway in the heart of the nation's capitol. I have stayed here before the renovations, and now after and I am very pleased. It is a little pricey, but a very nice treat for yourself.

Very surprising

Didn't have much expectation given the $109CDN booking cost. Very pleasantly surprised at my stay and the cost compared to value. Not accustomed to this as I stay in Toronto mostly where I pay much more for much less. Of particular mention - the staff - friendly, smiling, helpful and at-the-ready. Great time in DC...made better by this location...thanks. Chris.

Glorious hotel with one poor characteristic

The hotel both honors the glamour of last century's hotels without sacrificing modern amenities. The lobby is very attractive and is manned by helpful guest advisers. This grandeur carries over to individual rooms which are spacious, quiet and comfortable. The only negative is that the PCs in the so-called business center charged 40 cents a minute. During my five day stay, I passed by the PCs four times. At no time were they being used. 40 cents times zero usage comes out to zero dollar revenues. I would recommend the hotel experiment with lower prices to find which price maximizes revenue.

The spy museum was captivating and filled with surprises. The news museum was far richer in detail than I expected.
