It's a nice smaller place, many of the rooms are snug, yet comfy, and it's even a tad fancy, esp. given it's considered a budget hotel.

Have stayed several times, and while not an upscale venue, it's modern and clean, and surprisingly good in so many ways, extra plus in it's convenient location near Dupont and Logan Circles, and easy access to downtown.

Room smell like someone just smoke and i ask non smoking!!!! I saw the fire alarm wrap on plastic, the toilet door knob is broken, toilet tissue holder is broken and and not to mention the towel rack is broken too... The ff morning i drop the remote on the floor and i saw an empty bottle of coke under the bed. I was wondering if the house keeping really change all the beddings before they other people check in?!?! I took all pictures of the concern to show the Gen. manager but the person in the concierge said his not coming back until Monday so i didn't even bother. I hope they can improve all of the things that was mention above.

It's a good convenient place to stay to many things in DC, and the price point is good. It's not fancy and on the smaller side, but it's rather sleek in the balance of things. Has wifi, TV, a shared kitchenette that has a refrigerator and microwave, there is also some service ware.

Friendly & and excellent staff. No kitchen @ small rooms.

Nice place, would book with confidence. Clean and quiet.

Everything as advertised. Close to everything. Friendly

Really long seemingly disorganized check-in and absolutely no rooms available for early check-in. Apparently a "garden" room means it is below street level, so the window view is of a sidewalk patio above you. Cute modern decor and a nice patio for sitting outside, but the area was swarming with mosquitoes so staying put outside was not a smart option. Some citronella candles or insect traps, maybe?

Great location and quaint hotel in Dupont Circle with close proximity to U Street.

Nice area. Place is dirty and smelly due to construction. Only the lobby is halfway presentable. I understand this is a hostel but paint chips should not be stuck to the bottom of my nikes. Staff was rude and incompetent. It literally took five tries to get me into the room. The first time I had the clerk try himself since he had condescendingly suggested I may not know how to operate this sophisticated key. He could not get in and tried to make me wait in the dirty hallway until he figures it out. I watched him go back and forth to only get into a hot stuffy room. Maybe it was the extra body heat in such a tiny space. Which is understandable but the air conditioning was half sufficient. Never again.

The staff we met were friendly and kind. The great disappointment is that the booking did not make clear that this hotel is undergoing renovation. The doors were not locked, and there was just a little desk by the door, not really a lobby area. More often than not as we came in and out, the staff was not at the desk or visible, so it felt like anyone could get in. The room was clean and decorated as advertised, but tiny. I don’t know how someone would fit a full-size suitcase in the room. No hairdryer, drawers, refrigerator, ice bucket, etc. Some of the outlets did not work. Also, the hallways were being painted, the doors had paper signs taped to them, there were mattresses and other boxes piled in the hallways. Construction dust in the lobby, and on our last morning we discovered upon checkout a team of landscapers using power tools to cut down all of the trees and plants in front of the building. This was not the romantic getaway we hoped for. This hotel seemed understaffed, and the room was not accessible to anyone of a larger body size, with mobility issues, or with much luggage. No restaurant on premises—not suitable for a long stay. New paint is already showing signs of wear. In my opinion, the hotel should not have taken bookings at this phase of the renovation project. However, location was excellent.

The room was so small, my bathroom at home is bigger... No reception, no towels, paint cans on the floor. They are doing renovations everywhere...

Hi Ralph, I was very disappointed and embarrassed when I read your feedback. None of these issues should be happening and the totality is completely unacceptable. Please feel free to contact me directly on Monday if you have the time.
