This is the second time I've booked rooms at this hotel for a friends get together. The hotel is in Georgetown, conveniently located near the Foggy Bottom Metro Station and the free Kennedy Center shuttle. There are good restaurants nearby, a small deli two doors away and a very nice breakfast/lunch spot a few blocks away.
The staff is friendly and very helpful. The place had been undergoing renovations when we last stayed but the reno is complete and quite nice. The hotel is older and clearly the renovations were not able to enlarge the very narrow and awkward layout of the bathrooms. Apart from the bathrooms, the two deluxe double rooms we had were spacious, with a desk, lots of closet space, and two very comfortable beds. Oddly enough in this day and age, despite having a desk, it had no USB port to charge a phone or I-pad. The room had a fridge but no coffe-maker which is also a bit odd, but there is free coffee in the lobby in the morning.
The lobby is spacious, with a bar, a restaurant, some large flat screen tvs and plenty of seating just to hang and plan what to do.
We were on the second floor in the rear overlooking a busy street but heard no traffic noise even though our stay was during the work week.
Both times we stayed we booked well in advance through Hotels.com and got a good price. For that reason, I rated the value high. However, it is a city hotel in a good location and that doesn't come cheap.
The small and awkward layout of the bathroom, and the lack of a USB port or coffeemaker are the reasons I did not rate an overall "excellent", but I would certainly recommend the hotel and intend to return for another friends' get together.
