We stayed three nights at the Cambria last week while in Washington to see some of the sights. The rooms were spacious, very clean and well maintained. The beds and pillows were comfortable . The staff were helpful and friendly . The location was great, a half hour walk or a short Metro ride to the National Mall. The small shops and restaurants along the way offered a great variety . The area around the hotel is being re-invigorated and as a result, you have grittier areas than others , however, my family was never concerned with safety while walking. The immediate area lacks shopping opportunities but malls were about a five mile drive. The grocery store next door was great and has a great selection of wines and beers.
The rooftop deck is lovely and guests brought their drinks up to the terrace while enjoying the view. It can get very hot on the deck as there isn't any shade and a few umbrellas strategically placed would offer some relief without compromising the view.
Please be aware that breakfast is not included in the very affordable price and that the hotel offers both a breakfast buffet and a breakfast menu. Opt for the menu as the buffet lacks from both variety and flavour, not worth the $16 charge .
The washer and dryer area, as well as the gym and indoor pool, were great to have and our family used it daily.
I have a feeling that as word spreads, this hotel will become much busier. The staff and general manager were very helpful and the valet service was great. We would definitely stay again and recommend this hotel to others.
