A recent stay at this hotel was wonderful. I opted for a second-floor room with shared bath, which was fine, and given the complimentary breakfast that came with the deal, very budget-friendly. There is an option to use a super quiet AC, or ceiling fan; my only criticism concerned the firm mattress, not quite to my liking, but minor, given my overall appreciation for this hotel. The corridors and rooms are decorated with art and historic prints on the walls, eclectic antiques for furnishings, all done tastefully and not overwhelming. While there indeed is no elevator, the young woman at the desk actually carried my suitcase up two flights of stairs without my asking, a kindness which I shall long remember. The breakfast for hotel guests is served individually in the dining room or on the outside patio (you are encouraged to leave a tip); the baked goods were particularly tasty and of high quality. The patio has some quirky sculptures and some nice plantings, including a little fig tree! I met up with a friend for dinner at the hotel the first night, and given that it was Restaurant Week in D.C., we had a delicious and reasonable meal, with a particularly noteworthy dessert. The menu offers very nice choices at all three meals of the day. At night it can get noisy, with conversations wafting up from the bar or outside patio, but on one of the three nights that I stayed, the female vocalist's jazz standards simply added to the charm of this hotel's atmosphere. It takes less than five minutes to reach Connecticut Avenue on foot, barely ten to reach Dupont Circle and its subway stop, which is well connected to the rest of the city.
