First visit to DC

It is a nice hotel with all you need. Short walk from the Kennedy Center. Foggy Bottom Metro station is only 2 blocks away and walking to the Lincoln Memorial takes 12 minutes at a relaxed pace. Did not try the restaurant as there are many options nearby. Housekeeping ladies stay until 4.30 pm and are very helpful. The room is spacious, we did not get a nice view but no big deal, for that you have to go out! The carpet, TV and furniture could be updated, it is not a deal breaker since we used the room just to sleep. We would stay here again.

Great Value

It exceeded my expectations for what we paid for it. The location is great, the staff helpful, the room clean and the amenities fantastic. Totally wasn't expecting to have a kitchen and living room included in the price of $130!

Great place to see Washington from

The junior suite idea is great. We could make our own meals. Trader Joes and Whole Foods are nearby. The Foggy Bottom GWU line is within walking distance and Georgetown is too.

Absolute excellent choice within price range

I used this hotel as a lay over to tour monuments. I selected the jr. suite which had a kitchen sofa bed and queen bed. Room was large and accommodating if my other guest would have stayed. It was a block and 1/2 away from Metro, which got you around practically to everything. I wish my stay was longer.

Perfect getaway

Hotel was centrally located in Foggy Bottom. It was an easy walking distance to Georgetown and the Mall. Close to the Metro. Came home and told my daughters that it was a great family spot, since it had a seperate kitchinette. I will definitely make this my go to hotel in Washington from now on!

family vacation to DC

Got a great deal on hotel. Upgraded to 2 queen beds /suite since all rooms were full. The beds were comfortable and clean. Kitchette was great for simple brkfast and dinners occasionally. The coffee bean/grinder for morning coffee was excellent!! However, the microwave was weak, one stove range did not work and the garbage disposal leaked. Minor inconvenience. More major thing for me is the sofa which is fairly worn down-- got bitten everytime I sat on it.! The other thing is the kitchen floor was kinda dirty and sticky. Maid never mopped it during my 8 day stay. Despite of the above, had a great time in D.C. with hotel in a very safe area near University having Metro 2 blks away and grocery store 1+ blk away. Would stay there again if I get the same deal as this time.
