We were in town for the nationals game and the 4th of July celebrations. The hotel was in a prefect location to the metro. Everyone who stays there must feel VIP, it was nice.

An old hotel in fairly good location

Pros: good location, right off metro station. Fair price for the value. Cons: don't ever try to rent a car for your trip. Parking is expensive, street parking is almost impossible over night. Metro is very convenient, don't bother with a car. Room is decent size, but it's an older hotel, it's hard to not notice. Shower has small stream of water. Hot water is not stable - during 9-10pm you may not even get enough hot water coming out of your shower. Oh, did I mention there is no water provided, and there is no venting machine. So if you want to have a bottle of water or any soft drink after 10, good luck! The closest Seven Eleven is 2 and half blocks away! Tip: you maybe score some free bottle water in the hotel gym.

Excellent location!

In addition of the location, all bus city tours services have a stop in front of the Hotel. Room comfort and staff service was very nice.

GW law graduate mom

One glitch when I checked in . The gal behind the desk wasn't as friendly as she could have been. However the rest of our stay was fantastic.. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. I can't say enough about the bar staff and restaurant staff. Especially Dessie and Tan. They were great fun. All in all great stay and I should mention that my sister was very ill on the day we had to leave and the new girl behind the desk granted us an extended check out with no problem. That was a big help. Would recommend this hotel without reservation.

Nice hotel

We stayed in this hotel for two nights, it was a nice experience overall. We arrived two hours before the check in time, they checked us in right away, no extra charge, which was very nice of them. I booked the room with breakfast included and it was worth it, otherwise if you have breakfast at the hotel it is double the price. The location is very convenient, lots of places to eat near by. The best thing is the hop-on/hop-off trolley that stops right in front of the hotel. With a day pass you can get off at an stop along the way and hop back on when the next trolley comes in about 20-30 minutes. The only thing is; do not expect a nice view from the windows you won't get it in most cases, but we did not mind as we only spent nights in the room anyway.
