Basic Lodging

This is basic lodging. Old hotel with new name and cosmetic upgrades. Nothing bad to say, but nothing exceptional to stay. Good location, if the price is right, this is a good fit. Good for business travel, not great for a romantic weekend.

Comfortable Stay

This was an average/decent hotel in a great location. Pricey once you include parking, but you would have the same problem at any other hotel in the area. This hotel was located extremely close to a parking garage, so I only had to pay $27 to park overnight vs. the $50 the hotel would have charged. The Indian restaurant across the street was pretty good and fairly priced. Overall, I enjoyed my stay and would probably stay there again if I needed to be within the same area.

Great 1/2 Marathon Weekend

We had a great weekend - the staff was friendly and helpful as we arrived early. They held our bags until room was ready which allowed us to get to race pickup before closing time. The staff helped direct us on the best way to get around town and helped accommodate our late checkout request.

convenient, quiet place

great concierges-personable, friendly, helpful; 2 short blocks to Metro Center and awesome restaurants and walking distance to many museums. Smallish hotel, low on decor that provides glitz-free, bustle-free easy stay.

Not so great

Shower never got hot (only warm, every time), toilet would drip loudly for an hour after every use, there was a loud conference going on right outside my room until late, hotel restaurant was disappointing (asked for the best thing on the menu and it tasted like a hot pocket)

Make sure you read before you visit Washington DC YOUR GOING TO HAVE TO PAY TO PARK TO STAY HERE

After booking this hotel I was very excited. I was paying around 120.00 a night and I was walking distance to the Verizon Center, all the monuments, memorials, and museums. Once you get off 395 and if your like me and from North Carolina. You are going to be AMAZED at how the traffic flows. My GPS took me right to the hotel; however, we did drive around a bunch because of all the one way streets. The main reason I am writing this review is because of the hotel staff. They were not very helpful at all. For example, when we got there I asked where do we park. They said you can park here at the hotel for 50.00 a night. I said wait... I am a guest. They say yes even if you are a guest you still have to pay 50.00 a night. I was shocked. They told me I could drive around the block and pay 25.00. I informed them that I have already driven 5 hours and I was not used to the laws and traffic here in DC. I asked if I could ride with them to park my car somewhere else and they said no. What really upsets me is why did I have to pay to park at the hotel that I am staying at. Employees were saying we have to pay to park to work here. I was like that is not my problem. I am a guest, enjoying your hotel, and I should be able to park for free. I have been to Myrtle Beach and other popular cities and none have ever charged me to park at the hotel. They didn't even offer the parking charge as a credit to our account or as a credit to their restaurant which by the way was not great. My sirloin slider bread rolls were really dry, but my wife said her french dip was just okay. I would highly recommend staying here still, but beware of the DC traffic especially if you are from a small town like me. Try asking someone while your driving a good place to park because hotels are going to charge you. As far as I know I did not see any free parking. Thanks for reading

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The Crime Museum in Washington DC is awesome. You have to go. It is like 20.00 a person but you get to shoot guns, interact with other touch screen monitors, and drive a police car simulator. It is really cool.

convenient and comfortable

I arrived just before midnight after travel complicated by snow. The woman at the registration desk was friendly and helpful, and the comfortable room was a welcome relief from a long day of travel. After I found the wireless internet connection unreliable, I was provided with a cable to connect my laptop to the internet. The service and location were great.

Great Stay

The hotel was great. It was in a good location. The only downsides were the size of the rooms and the fact that it costs $47 a day to park in their parking garage. They could have told this to us prior to parking there. I like to know what I am getting myself into before I get into it. If they posted this, I would have liked my stay better.
