2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A bit run down for the price, but the location is outstanding, the staff helpful, & the room clean.

Bell hop #1 was great... opened doors, took bags, offered to grab a taxi for us. He was always polite and friendly. Bell hop #2 quiet, made eye contact but just stood against the wall. The room was nice but the window never was fully closed and the door frame had peeling paint.

To be sure, this is an older property so upon arriving I was a bit worried to see my room. The room was a small, cozy space, the beds and linens were lovely, I had everything I needed and I was pleased. It's not a 5-star hotel but a solid, safe, clean place to stay. The breakfast was wonderful.

The hotel is close enough to shopping and dinning. We ended up using uber to get around to different bars/restaurants since we did not feel that there we many places near the hotel. But overall, for the price, you really can't beat this place. It was super welcoming. They have coffee/water available in the lobby 24/7. They also offer free popcorn and cookies as well and other snacks for purchase. We really enjoyed that they offer free breakfast. It's hard to find hotels these days that offer free breakfast in a large city and with us not being huge breakfast people we never want to go out for breakfast. It was extremely convenient to grab some eggs, fruit and yogurt before starting our day. Highly recommend this place.

Hotel needs alot of upgrade Old roomsand bathroom. Needs new Carpet in room

Though the hotel staff was good the property was not in the best condition how close to the meeting venue I was attending, could I get a hotel credit from orbit.

I needed a room within my per diem in the heart of the city and this was perfect. Clean, comfortable, friendly, great location, no complaints whatsoever. Didn't try the breakfast but could see it was better than usual for a free breakfast.

I waited a little too late to book a room and this is the best I could find for the money. Surge pricing took me higher than it would usually cost here but it was clean and comfortable.

Shop around for parking. Overall great choice for the price.

Well-located and room was clean. But, hotel needs renovation. Carpet was dirty, old and worn. My room was small, but the problem was it had too much furniture for its size. Hallway was noisy, especially with doors that did not have "soft" closing hinges. Front desk staff were not welcoming or friendly.

hotel is good , but not worth for the amount paid.

I stayed at this hotel for my sisters birthday weekend and we enjoyed every but of it. The staff was helpful and told us where certain attractions were and how to get around the city. The only thing I didnt like is the fact that we had to valet park because there was not any street parking.

The hotel was centrally located. It was cheaper than many other hotels, yet it was also cheaper. The room was clean and there was wifi as well as continental breakfast. The staff was also courteous. I would stay there again if my trips bring me to Washington DC again.

We were a little concerned about beg bugs at the beginning but our stay turned out to be quite wonderful. My boyfriend and I booked a single with a king-sized bed for three nights and we were satisfied with the overall experience especially given the amount of money we paid. Location was great. easy access to the white house and metra station.

I was there for a conference for one day. The hotel location was perfect and I was pleasantly surprised by how nice the room was. I used the transit system after 10 pm and walked to the hotel which was close by and in a safe neighborhood. I was able to walk to my conference the next morning after a self serve breakfast. Check in was pleasant and swift. No problems and I had a good night's sleep.

Hotel was is a nice area. Walking distance to shopping or attractions. Staff was courteous. Breakfast was more then expected.

Decent room and good wifi. Can't complain. When I called, my rate was a few $ higher though than online booking for the same room

I stayed at this hotel while attending a professional conference at the DC Convention Center (CC). It is only 6 blocks from the CC and from the CC Metro Station on the Yellow Line, which runs directly from Reagan National Airport to the CC (easy commute for $3), and hooks you up to anywhere in the city. The neighborhood surrounding the hotel is residential and attractive, with many restaurants, coffee shops, and some convenience stores within a 5-15 minute walk in all directions. Maddy's Taproom is phenomenal; 2 blocks away, 40 beers on tap, good burgers, full service bar, lots of TVs for watching sporting events. Thai Tanic was so delicious and made for great take out from only a few blocks away. Quite a few restaurants deliver to the hotel with a 5% discount for hotel guests, including a couple Indian and Mediterranean restaurants that had great menus; unfortunately, I was too late in ordering the night I checked them out. Fast food is nearby, also. Front desk staff are very knowledgeable about the area and can direct you to any restaurant with any cuisine. The staff are very friendly, they keep fresh coffee brewing fresh popcorn popping all day long, with baked cookies in the late afternoon (all complimentary). The business center is very basic (computer and printer) but **free**. Breakfast is free each morning with eggs, bacon/sausage, waffles, bagels, pastries, fruit, yogurt, etc. and several juices, milk, and coffee. My King room was small and a bit crowded, but equipped with everything I needed, including a good desk and chair for a work station. There were two major drawbacks. First, the free internet was virtually worthless for me as a professional trying to work from my room. Even though I was located directly above the hotel desk/office (where the router was located), the signal vacillated between 1-2 mbps and crashed frequently; there was barely enough signal to make a VPN connection and I got disconnected constantly. Even when I was just surfing the web, the pages were very slow to load and froze up often. Second, there was a video camera hidden in the door of the wardrobe cabinet, directly facing the bed, which was hardwired into the wall behind the cabinet (see photos). Directly below the camera a blue panel appears to be a sound receiver. This creeped me out! Fortunately I saw it soon after I entered the room and covered it over for my entire stay. Overall, the price ($109/night) was tough to beat and I was pleased with the experience except for the frustration of the internet IN-access and the creepy video.

Excellent value; other hotels nearby are much more expensive and if you don't need a hotel bar and restaurant this is a great place to stay. Several very good restaurants within a six block walk. Very good complimentary full breakfast.

Walkable to Metro, internet reception was good and FREE, within a few blocks of restaurants, cabs nearby, would stay here again.
