great location, wonderful room, helpful staff enjoyed our stay and hope to make a return visit

The hotel was nice, modern, and secured. Parking is not free, it costs $45 per night with valet parking. The staff was not cleared with breakfast when checking in. It's not complimentary, so our group got charged for breakfast. However, the breakfast cost was decent price. It's about $16 for each person. Overall is a good hotel if you don't mind the parking and breakfast.

Was there for 4th July long weekend. Staff was very courteous, rooms were good size and clean. What makes me rank 5/5 is full service Starbucks at ground level Gaint (grocery) behind he hotel which is super convenient when you are traveling with family. Capitol is 5-10 mins by car. You can always call uber or taxi if you donot want to deal with finding parking.

Mt Vernon Square Metro station is about a 5 minute walk to the hotel. Metro Yellow line from Mt. Vernon Square station is 7 stops to Ronald Reagan airport. Not many restaurants near hotel. Take the Metro to L'Enfant Plaza which has a food court. Good if you have kids. The hotel only has 2 elevators. Both were out of order for one day during our stay. Climbing 7 flights of stairs was not fun after walking all day. Washington citizens and Metro employees were very helpful when riding the Metro. It's a great system.

Wonderful accommodations and all hotel and restaurant staff were friendly and personable. I will definitely stay in this hotel whenever I travel to Washington.

We made a quick stop in DC and had 2 adults and 3 kids and were very comfortable in this suite.

-IMPORTANT: Do not let them put you in a room that ends with “22.” We were in room 522, and my wife and I both agreed that it was the worst view (or “view”) we have ever had. We were literally looking at a wall. Not only were we looking at a wall, but even when it was a beautiful, sunny day outside, it was still dark looking out our window. I referred to our room as our “cave.” After 3 nights, I was feeling very ready to get out of the cave. Plato himself would have wanted out after 3 nights. If this had been $100/night, I would have ignored it, but at $250/night, I have to deduct a star from my review for this. I’d also avoid rooms that end in “20” just to be safe. -Parking is really expensive and kind of confusing. The best way seems to be to park underneath in the “retail” parking lot, which is where people park when they come to shop at the grocery. It will cost you $30/night if you leave your car there and then retrieve it at the end of your stay. The other option is the hotel’s valet parking at $45/night. Either way, plan to spend some money on parking. -They have a weird elevator system from the parking garage. You have to go up an elevator to their lobby, then take a different elevator up to your room. Any time you enter the hotel, you need to either walk up the stairs and then take the elevator to your room or take the elevator from the lobby up one floor to the main lobby, and then switch to a different elevator to go to your room or the roof.

This location was great for us with restaurants close by and comfortable size room for our family of five

Staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming. If I go back to DC I will definitely look into staying at the Cambria

We stayed 4 nights, convenient, clean, boutique hotel. Would stay here again. Rooftop patio w gas firepit & great views. O St Mkt converted to Giant supermarket next door. Highly recommended.

We were promised close proximity to White house...one quest is 94! So disappointed, no where near and subway 4 blocks away

Within walking distance to metro. Restaurants and market close by.

My brother and I took our 10 year olds to DC for 4 days to learn about our great country! The Cambria was a great hotel to relax in after a day of sightseeing! The only thing negative to comment on is that a lot of the hotel staff at the front desk don't really know a lot about the city as far as distance to locations or restaurant suggestions?? I found this very interesting for such a nice hotel! The other thing I didn't care for too much was that you had to ask for your towels and the sheets are changed every three days unless u ask for it sooner!

Sparkling new hotel close to the Convention Center. Modern but comfortable, spacious rooms for a city hotel. Very quiet neighborhood to boot. Close enough to the Metro to make it usable regardless of where you need to be in DC.

Staff was great. Bar staff was not the most pleasant. It was an ok location for my stay.

The staff was always friendly, loved that grocery store was on the same block so we could have picnic when we finally got back to our room after very long day walking. The pool room was warm but the pool could have been warmer. Bed was very comfortable and we slept well. Hallways were quiet and no street noise.

No one came over to take out order for breakfast waited 15 min then left. Only blemish on an otherwise very enjoyable stay.

Room wasn't cleaned well other than that very nice. Only stayed for a few hours

I was in town for the Bettye LaVette concert and just to get away from regular life. I arrived before my room was ready, so the staff put my bag behind the desk and referred me to a wonderful sandwich shop down the street for lunch. After a great lunch and sunshine stroll, I returned to a suite that was impeccably and artfully appointed. The decor and ambience of the entire hotel said modern chic. The staff was friendly at all times and helped me find other great eateries and some consignment stores. The hotel is located close enough to tourist attractions that you can take a cab to where you want to go, but it's tucked away in a residential area that reminded me of the arts district of my hometown. I walked for hours each day, just exploring and enjoying the sunshine, and I felt completely safe. There's even a huge grocery store on the next block if you need to grab a few items and a Starbucks next door. The on site restaurant/bar was overpriced compared to the eateries I visited and had slow service. I left a note for the manager about my less than satisfactory experience, and she sent a fruit, cheese, and cracker tray with a card for a free appetizer and an apology to my suite. That's how professionals who care about their customers respond. This was one of the best vacations I've had in awhile.

View from the roof! View from our room (522).  :(
