Great location but lacking in other areas

Would recommend Tue, Dec 22, 2015
Excellent Dupont location, nice room, hotel has been updated not too long ago and it shows. They don't provide free internet, which is a joke at this time and age. There is no lobby or nice sitting area for guests. The restaurant is of average quality. The service is good but somewhat overbearing (three people helped with luggage from taxi to room, which is too much).

Truly one of DC's premier hotels

Would recommend Mon, Aug 10, 2015
I had first visited this hotel for a conference and was impressed by it's Embassy Row historic look. Staying here, I enjoyed my room but the staff really makes this place special. They're fast, even with room service meals (which was delicious). Most impressive was I arrived early morning to drop my bags and head off to my appointment and they put me in a room immediately even though my check-in wasn't until 3pm. This seldom happens in many Cities I've visited. I've sat in several hotel lobbies for hours in DC alone. A real winner!

Perfect location in Dupont Circle

Would recommend Wed, Dec 31, 2014
It doesn't get much better than this if you want a classy, quiet place to stay for a few nights in DC. A block from the Metro and everything you need is within a block or two. Friendly front desk and great room -- super bed, good TV and strong (pay) wifi service.

We were just here for a night, but it was a fine and pleasant stay. Clearly an older hotel, but still kept up and nicely appointed.

Overall this hotel was a great value and location, the bedsheets did not seem to have been changed from the previous customers, it had body hairs under the sheets, and the pillow had a dirty smell!!.

Location is the key

Would recommend Fri, Jul 25, 2014
This is a great place to stay. If you like using the Metro to get around, it is unbeatable. The lobby and the rooms are a little on the small side, but the place is a little piece of beauty right in the middle of Embassy Row. There are dozens of places to eat in the neighborhood and a Starbucks right around the corner. The staff are friendly and seem to love the place and just working there. We highly recommend this hotel.

Time saver

Metro is a nice 2 block walk through a historic and beautiful section of Dupont Circle.

Mixed Bag

Would recommend Mon, Jul 21, 2014
On my recent trip to this hotel I had a variety of experiences -- some positive, some not. Check-in for some reason was a little long -- even though I was helped right away. I inquired about whether or not I can earn loyalty points for this stay and was told "no, you booked through a third party." The irony was that upon checkout I was given a business card requesting that I review the property on third party website. Hmmm. It seems odd to request a positive review via a provider who links guests to third parties -- when I was just told there's no loyalty for booking through one. That aside, I found dark black hair all over my room - on the foot of the bed, the carpet, the bathroom floor and in the toilet (where I also found paper wrappers from the toilet paper outside wrap) when I arrived. My shampoo/conditioner were not refreshed and I had to request them. Most of the staff were nice. The gym was quite good as compared to many other hotel gyms I have used. I also requested special assistance with something in my room and was accommodated straight away. The hotel appointments are very good, and the location is perfect for sightseeing and business.

Great hotel in an excellent location

Would recommend Tue, Jun 17, 2014
I have stayed in this hotel a few times in the past. The location can't be beat.The hotel is only a short walk from Dupont Circle and is right on Embassy Row - a very nice tree-lined street where all the embassies are located. The hotel rooms are of decent size and if you are a lucky you may get one of the suite style rooms which are really really large. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and the rooms are very clean. My only gripe is that I wish they had more personal products in the bathroom like toothpaste, deodorants, more soaps, and conditioners.
