“Excellent hotel overall...”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

We had an excellent experience with this hotel from the minute we stepped off the Metro. The hotel is directly across the street from the McPherson Square subway station (make sure to go towards 14th St when you get off the train). The door man and front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was ready when we arrived at 11am, so that was a huge plus. We had a room on the 3rd floor overlooking 14th St. It was somewhat loud during the day, as to be expected in a city like that. It was quiet at night though, with the occasional horn or two.

The hotel overall was very clean, from the lobby to the room and bathroom. The bed was comfortable and the HVAC system worked great. It looks like the hotel was recently renovated. The hotel also has free wifi, which was great. The speed was decent.

The location of the hotel is perfect. You are just two blocks from the White House and everything else isn't much further. Again, it's so close to the Metro station, so you can just hop on and go. We also did the "bike-share" that they have in the city. There is a bike stand about 150 ft from the front door of the hotel. You pay $7 for 24 hours or $15 for 3 days, and you pop the bike out and ride all over town to see the sites. There are tons of bike stands all over, so you can park it and go see whatever sites you want and then come back and get another one. It was really great.

The next time we come to DC, we are staying here. We have friends that booked a trip for the Spring and we are going to tell them to switch their hotel to this one.

We have stayed here twice for sightseeing trips in DC. We never rented a car. You can walk to most attractions. Easy to get a cab. Staff were super nice to my daughter. We enjoyed the bar at happy hour after lots of museum trips. Pool is in basement and is not the greatest but my daughter still loved it. Clean. We will be back again!

We stated here on business for 2 nights. The location is fantastic for getting around DC, the rooms are very cozy and the HHonors Diamond Breakfast coupon has everything needed for a good meal.

The only downside is we were upgraded to a higher floor view room which didn't help at all with the noise. It seems DC police LOVE to run lights for any reason, so this goes on all night. And sadly the hotel is not equipped to block it out. You will need earplugs for a good nights sleep

Room Tip: Request rooms off street

Hotel is just opposite the Metro (Blue). The location is close to everything including the White house and you can reach others by metro or bus.
Staffs were great and helpful. Everyone were working like they are the host and want guest to be very happy and it did. I never saw anyone with unhappy face.
Breakfast was good in American standard and I could say that this was the best breakfast we had during our 2 weeks trip in US. The best thing during our breakfast was the staff who was very friendly.
Room was very comfortable however, shower was too soft. Other than this everything was just good.
I would recommend this hotel for anyone who want to stay in home away from home.

I stayed here for one night during the week before thanksgiving day 2013. It was clean, and within walking distance to the white house and many of the attractions in DC. Very close to the metro station. I stayed on the 3rd floor. Room seemed a little small to me, but it was very clean and comfortable. Complimentary breakfast was not included in my rate so I can't comment on their food. I payed off-peak prices; so for what I paid ( ~$110/night) I was happy with my stay here. Had I paid top dollars for this hotel I think I would have been disappointed. The best thing this hotel has going for it is location, location, location.......other than the location this is an average 3-star hotel in my opinion.

I always stay at this hotel when in DC. It is convenient to the museums, the metro, the White House and Union Station. The rooms are clean and quiet and the staff is truly nice and helpful. We have stayed here three times in the last few years and I would highly recommend this hotel.

The room was clean and overall good for the price (though bathroom was rather small). Buffet breakfast was nice. Complimentary internet access was a definite plus. The hotel's location is also convenient.
