    nice and close to all the sights in Washington DC and the Metro

    Reliable, standard hotel. They've upgraded the bed linens and it seems well cared for, if not completely upgraded. They gave me a "double" room (2 double beds) instead of a king, but it was also a room with a lovely view so I have no complaint, in fact I consider it a nice upgrade.

    The dining room breakfast was extremely variable. I ordered the same "Spa Breakfast" every day (egg white veg omelet +) and it was a different event every day. Clearly different people in the kitchen and different understanding of the menu item by the servers. Truly an adventure.

    The hotel was close to metro transport service and the restaurant provided delicious, a wide range of choice and well priced meals. The staff were very knowledgeable and helpful.

  • Family with children

    The hotel was very convenient to the Smithsonian and the metro system which was a big plus. The room was very comfortable and the staff very gracious, overall a very pleasant visit.

    There is nothing around the hotel, i.e., restaurants, one feels stranded once in the facility. A better hotel for business meetings rather than family stays.

    The location was convenient to the Washington Mall so it was easy to walk to all the Smithsonian museums. Also quick access to the Metro.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    The location is great: it is right on the metro station and very close to all the attractions.

    There is no night life in the area, so if you are looking for cafe or restaurants to walk to at night, choose a different place.

    It's location to the DC points of interest.

  • Older travelers

    At this price the fact that they did not offer free internet access is very poor - I would not go back for this reason alone.

    I travelled from New York. In seeking directions I used the one in the web site, which did not direct me to Independence avenue, which is the most convenient one.

    Quick responsive service.

    View from the room was great. Felt that my patronage was important. Staff was personable.

  • Family with children
    7.0

    Loved the pool and easy access to the center of dc as well as the Metro.

    Did not like being tied to the in-hotel dining (and expense thereof) and really did not like that wi-fi was so expensive.

    There was no hot water in the morning. The staff was unfriendly upon arrival. The room's walls were very thin feeling every movement of the bed in the next room.

  • Family with children

    Convienience to all exhibits and metro. Very comfortableb rooms

    Breakfast buffet space to crowded on wall sidewalls I was bummed by every waiter that came by. Maybe on Sunday an omelet station and gluten free choices not everything full of wheat. To much available not to include. Rufus and udi breads are excellent for breakfast choices. I enjoyed my stay. Pam Kuehne
