Very nice boutique style hotel in a convenient DC location.

Unique property with small hotel feel and big hotel service. It's a good location adjacent to shopping and restaurants not far from Georgetown and walking distance to Metro and other attractions. We would definitely stay again!

Washington family trip

Hotel was awesome! Outstanding service from all staff with everything you may need help with or have questions about. Beautiful lobby, rooms and public areas. The rooms are large which was really great for our family of 4. The location cannot be beat! It's 5 minute walk to both the metro and to Georgetown!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Best way to see everything is D.C. is by metro as the driving and parking there is not easy! Definitely choose a hotel close to the metro! The metro doesn't go to Georgetown, so having a hotel both close to the metro and Georgetown is ideal!

Easy Walk from Metro

Convenient from DCA to Metro to hotel. Multiple restaurants closeby. Small, beautiful, Catholic church just up the street and open during the day for a quick visit. Only problem was no room available for check-in at 11:30 AM. Understand that, but staff did not apologize or offer a time when room would be ready. Nice large, quiet restroom with mirrored vanity area where I could get ready for meeting worked out just fine.

Friendly Staff, Great Location, and Comfortable!

All staff members we encountered were incredibly gracious and friendly! They really made this a fun, relaxing, and comfortable visit. The hotel is also perfectly located so that you can walk to Georgetown or to the Metro to explore the Smithsonian and Capitol area. (About .3 miles to either G-town or Foggy Bottom Metro station.) Lots of great restaurants nearby as well.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Rasika West End is an excellent nearby Indian restaurant. If you want something more casual, Burger Tap, and Shake is just a block away, near Washington Circle. For great coffee, walk to Baked and Wired in Georgetown (about .5 miles).

Nice stay

Good value at a good location very close to the restaurants and shopping in Georgetown. Rooms were nice and updated, carpets could have been a bit cleaner and bathroom wasn't pristine, but still nice overall. If you are staying on the weekend, plenty of parking garages a block away that are much cheaper than valet.
