“All you need”
Reviewed 13 December 2012

Extremely comfortable 7 day stay. Spacious room, a full kitchen, washer/dryer and 2 bathrooms. a couple blocks from the white house and conveniently located, you can not ask for more and I certainly didnt. There was no view but that was expected as youre in the city not a seaside resort.

The only issue I had was the abrupt lady at the front desk. I was expecting 2 packages and on on my way out one day enquired at front desk if anything had arrived. I was told abruptly by the lady(I didnt get her name) that nothing had arrived, that she doesnt need to check as SHE logs everything. I was speechless and surprised as my package was on floor directly behind her. I decided I'd ask later when she had left whereby the gentleman at the front desk promptly checked and handed me my 2 packages which by the way were marked on the sheet as "delivered". the only blemish on a brilliant stay

We stayed at AKA White House and our experience was superlative. The greeting and efficiency of the front desk staff was great; a short check-in time, then to our suite. We were upgraded and we thoroughly enjoyed our one bedroom penthouse suite. In similar hotels around the world, we have found cleanliness to be a problem but not here - everything was "ship shape". The bed was very comfortable (another common complaint for us). And, the decor was typical of the five star hotels nearby. The nightly rate was about one-half what we would have paid at Hay-Adams or St. Regis.

Room Tip: We prefer a room away from the main street, H Street - it is quieter.

I stayed at the AKA Whitehouse for 3 nights. My 2 bedroom suite was clean, spacious and nicely furnished and ideal for my son, his mate and myself. Having 2 bathrooms was a real bonus so to was the kitchen. The location was excellent and within easy walking distance to the White House, Capital Hill and all the monuments it's even an easy stroll to Arlington Cemetery. Restaurants like the Founding Farmers were an easy walk and a short cab ride took you to Georgetown an lovely little town. Metro station was close by too. I would be more than happy to stay here again and would recommend.

I stayed at the AKA Whitehouse for 3 nights while in DC for business. My suite was very clean and spacious. Having a full kitchen while away from home was a treat. There was a gift bag waiting for me in the suite from the hotel's general manager with a handwritten note. I was impressed by the gesture. The bag was full of practical goodies and included 2 coupons for complimentary glasses of wine in the lobby bar.

The cons: The lack of true daily housekeeping. When I am away I like for my room to be serviced every day in a detailed manner. The maid simply brought new towels and pulled the sheets back on the bed - a bit dissapointing. Also as mentioned in other reviews the suite was a bit dark. I like a lot of natural light and a bright space.

The location is great in terms of being close to DCA airport and it is in a walkable area with plenty of restaurants near by.

The staff I encountered were friendly and accomodating. Drinks in the lobby bar were also enjoybale.

If given AKA Whitehouse as an option while staying in DC I would stay again.

Room Tip: The suites are a perfect option for families and extended stay trips.

My sister and I stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath, suite for a weekend in Washington. The property was very well-maintained and was quiet. We were in the back of the hotel and did not have a special view. Having two baths was quite luxurious. The kitchen was complete with microwave, full-size refrigerator, coffee maker and dishwasher. The location is perfect for walking to the White House and other attractions, such as the restaurants on Pennsylvania Avenue like Founding Farmers. Two metro stations are nearby; one is a block away and the other two blocks away. If you are staying over on a Sunday, be aware that the coffee shops nearby are not all open early on Sunday morning. Also, the lounge in the hotel serves wine and beer but was not open on the Saturday night when we visited, probably more fully in action on week nights. This DC hotel is business-like and best for adults but we did observe some well-behaved young children. We had a special rate involving payment ahead but were not actually charged until we arrived. Would like to stay again.

Room Tip: A room facing the front would probably have a more pleasant view than the back.
