I spent 4 nights for a business trip this past week.
The location is convenient to the McPherson Square Metro stop, super easy to get there from Reagan National Airport.
There are restaurants and other stores within easy walking distance. I walked to Whole Foods for supplies a couple of times and the mini fridge in my room made for easy breakfasts as I had early start times each morning.
I used the fitness center several times, the equipment is new and in good condition.
My room was on the 12th floor, no view (a next door office building), but it was spotless, bathroom included. I had an executive room, so I think they're a bit larger than a standard room, with a small couch and desk and chair.
The Keurig in my room was appreciated, but the Green Mountain Coffee brand on offer is awful.
Housekeeping did a great job in my room, and I happily returned to a spotless room every afternoon.
I needed wi-fi for work, and the signal was strong with only one hitch with connecting on my second day.
Elevators are slow and on the small side, but I kept that in mind and always gave myself a bit of extra time when leaving. It's a fair trade for having an older building with some character.
As I'm a Priority Club member they didn't bat an eye when I asked for a late (2 PM) check out on Wednesday.
Overall, definitely a keeper if I return to D.C. and need to be on the orange or blue line.
