I was in DC for a week and would have spent my entire time here had our office travel person booked the room sooner. As noted by others, this is a brand-spanking new hotel and there are still some tweaks to be made but overall, I was very happy after spending 5 nights here.
I will say the hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I needed a sewing kit to fix a button on a suit, but they didn't have any. The night manager offered to buy one if he had to, but he was able to get one from the nearby Renaissance. I thought the food at the Anthem restaurant was pricey, especially $25 for the breakfast buffet, but I guess that's just a cost of doing business in DC.
My only other gripes are that housekeeping missed us one day, but they were able to restock the coffee and bathroom supplies and cell/data service in my room was nearly non-existent. Management is working with the various providers to install repeaters in the building so that should be fixed soon. On the upside, there is free WiFi in the lobby with plenty of spots to plug in your tablet or laptop. The lobby itself has a huge, open atrium with a full-service bar and a Starbucks for your java jolt.
For my troubles, I was given access to the M Lounge on the 12th Floor which offered free internet access as well as snacks, and a free breakfast. I'll be sure to stay here again if I come back to DC next year.
