I stayed here a few times when this place was a Doubletree - and although the rooms were dark and shabby, my biggest gripe was the unfriendly service. What a difference a year makes. The revamped property has made some small -- but appreciated -- changes to the rooms. They have cut passthroughs from the kitchen to the entryway, and from the kitchen to the living area, so the place feels open and inviting. They have repainted in bright colors, and most importantly, they have installed Staff 2.0 ... the new crew is genuinely friendly.
Foggy Bottom is a pleasant area, and just a few Metro stops from the business areas of DC.
If I had to change anything - I would add more fruit to the breakfast: don't get me wrong, you won't leave hungry ... but the only real fruit offering was honeydew ... no berries, no watermelon, no pineapple, no grapes. Doesn't detract from the place at all. Hope to return.
