My husband my best friend and I spent 10/2-10/4 here -- I am a junkie for TripAdvisor and use it as my guide to all things travel -- the reviews did not disappoint - the hotel is literally a 5 minute walk to the White House and just a couple more minutes to the Mall. The staff is amazing - Eddie at the front desk kept me in stitches the entire time we were there -- he even ridiculed me jokingly about my obsession for maps -- Mark the Valet was such a nice guy - the entire staff was wonderful, helpful and accommodating but these 2 gentlemen really stood out. My friend stayed behind on Saturday because she wasn't feeling all that well and when we came downstairs, Mark asked where she was and how she was doing because he hadn't seen her all day -- I can't remember how many floors there were but the fact that they remembered who we were was really a nice personal touch - and we aren't high brow society types -- we don't get to vacation often ad certainly don't have scads of money so they were definitely not trying to suck up -- just being nice and friendly.
The room was great -- nice and big and airy with a HUGE bathroom - microwave and mini fridge which really came in handy -- also loved the free wifi - we brought our laptop with us and it really helped with restaurant reviews, tickets, etc. Neutrogena products in the bathroom and Henry Miller ergonomic chairs -- if you don't this guy, his products run around $1,000 ea!! Free cookies and coffee at night -- we didn't eat in the restaurant but I did go down one night to get some tonic water (for those g&ts in our room :)) and the bartender was really nice.
We didn't use the metro across the street -- Eddie suggested we go to the metro station a couple of blocks away so we wouldn't have to change trains - but it was nice to have a train so close by -- and incredibly easy to navigate around the city
I'm sure the hotel is more expensive during the holidays, cherry blossom, etc. but we paid $150/night and it was the best hotel money we've ever spent - an excellent time and will definitely stay there again when we go back.
