Wonderful location.

Wonderful, quiet location in the heart of Embassy Row. A 10-12 min. walk to the Metro. Room was on the small side, but elegantly appointed. The price of the cold continential breakfast- $16.95- was a bit much. I loved coming back from the city and enjoying the quiet surroundings offered by the hotel.

Dupont Circle is about 10 blocks, within walking distance. There is a hill when returning to the hotel, but the bus stops about 2 blocks away from the hotel. Also, the metro is located at Dupont Circle, so it is convenient and inexpensive to go and visit the sites of DC.

Great hotel. Boutique experience at reasonable rates. Very kind, helpful staff. Room was on the small side, but very nicely decorated, very clean, very romantic. Central location, very convenient to most of DC, yet on a beautiful, quiet block.

Nice cute and clean hotel

The hotel itself does not have many outdoor amenities but it is very nice. There is no parking space, which is a common problem in DC and there was no free breakfast. Me and my husband went there on what was supposed to be a business trip but, we took advantage to visit as tourists as well. We rented a car but there's no need to rent a car. Everything is walking distance.

Great deal hidden in plain sight!

The room was as small as others described, but it was wonderful anyways! Every comfort we could ask for was there - down to the espresso machine in room. The location was ideal - a quick walk between two red line metro stops, with dozens of great dining options close by. The staff was wonderful and went above and beyond to make us comfortable. The hotel was clean, quite and convenient... An incredible deal for a fabulous hotel!

family trip

The hotel was in a great neighborhood, near the foreign embassy housing and close to two metro stations. Lot of restaurants within walking distance and near Dupont Circle. It was a safe place and the hotel staff were very helpful. The atmosphere of the hotel was cozy and home like. Would highly recommend and would stay there again.
