I loved this hotel! Stayed her for a weekend trip with the girls for cherry blossoms. First time I've been back to visit D.C. since I was a kid and this hotel was located in the perfect spot! We had a 10 minute sub-$3 train ride to a station about 2 blocks away from hotel. Staff all greets you in French which is such a great touch! Easy check-in and then on to a fabulous room -- lots of pluses -- best beds and linens ever (and that includes all the four seasons and westin's i've stayed at!), L'occitane products in the bathroom, large room with a nice sitting area -- only downside was that there was no view but I didn't really care. Location was fantastic, so unbelievably close to the white house (2 blocks!) and the national mall with all the monuments. I didn't try any of the restaurants but did spend time in the bar downstairs and it was very nice, great atmosphere, good drinks and interesting "bar-nibbling" food provided(marinated carrots, popcorn and nuts). I didn't try the gym here as there was a new one a few blocks away that I tried on a trial basis -- Mint -- great spin class! I also decided to do a run around the mall and the staff offered me water as I left and again as I returned -- very nice service! I would stay here upon any return to D.C.
