“They took my kitty and made me feel like a VIP!”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

I was at this wonderful hotel a month ago due to not having water or heat at my residence during one of the snowstorms.

They let me check in early with Buttercup as I was headed to work afterwards. Although they were unfamiliar with the web pet policy (litterbox and playtoys for kitty), I left her in their capable hands.

It is right off of Farragut North Metro and a little hard to find (no sign), but look for the balconies.

The rooms were spacious and comfortable. In particular, Nara (?) at the front desk was an absolute doll when advising me what was in walking distance (Whole Paycheck to pick up food and beverages).

Went down to the restaurant on a Saturday night and was treated like a VIP and met the chef and sous chef. Told them I was congested and they jazzed up the mussels in coconut milk for me (THANKS!). I had never had absinthe, asked about it and got that martini. I had invited a new friend to join me for dinner and they asked us how long we had been a couple (it was a first date fellas).

Highly recommend for the service, value and a place to bring your 4-legged family members (they don't charge an extra deposit for them).

Thank you Elliott R. From the first conversation on the phone the night we needed to check in you seemed sincere in helping us in our situation with our family member in the hospital and the unpredictability of our situation. Your kindness and generosity far out weighed the comfort of the room. Though the "suite" was totally what we needed and the discount helped immensely, we were nourished in sleep, hygiene, kindness and generosity. There was a brief concern over the siren traffic so near the hotel, but I think because Elliott was sincere and the place was immaculate, we slept our 5 hours and rolled on. Thank you again Elliott and his manager for the flexibility we absolutely needed at the time. Sincerely!

Room Tip: Speak with Elliot and the manager that was on Tues. Feb 12, 2014.

We stayed a long weekend as we came to D.C. to get married. We reached out to the hotel and inquired about an upgrade as we shared our good fortunes and the reason we would be staying there for the weekend. We arrived and were treated to a suite with beautiful roses, card signed by the staff, champagne, cheese tray with fresh fruit. We overlooked Washington circle and it was very convenient to the Metro station at Foggy Bottom and within walking distance to Georgetown and surrounding wonderful restaurants. The staff was very friendly and we would highly recommend anyone to check this place out. We had a fantastic weekend sight seeing and what a memorable weekend it was! We had a fantastic experience and will definitely recommend and stay again.

We missed the entrance the first time we drove past, but this hotel was worth circling the block for. Thanks to our AAA discount we scored a room upgrade to one with a full kitchen, and half-price valet parking. The hotel has a doorman and luxurious lobby. There are free apples available in the lobby and iced water gently flavored with real fruit pieces. There is also an on site bistro. The room wasn't quite as perfect as the lobby, with a few stains and peeling paint around the doorframe, but it was still very nice. I liked the guest book and magazine in the room discussing the various attractions. Our room had a balcony with a nice view over Washington Circle. The staff were great, and while there was a tiny glitch with the bill it was an honest error and quickly rectified for us. The hotel is handy to both a Roti and a Potbelly Sandwich Works - great places for tasty and affordable food. Our family walked from the hotel to the Lincoln Memorial and museums. The kids needed carrying at the end of the day, but it was really pleasant walking. We really liked the location and atmosphere of this hotel. We stayed 2 nights in January and will stay again next time we're in DC.

We stayed here on a Tuesday and had an amazing room looking at Washington Circle with a massive balcony. Our party had very large dogs and they were welcomed and upon heck in we were told if the hotel had dog beds they would send them to our room (they didn't but the offer was something I had never experienced before). The kitchen area was nice (walking distance to Whole Foods) and had everything you would need. Parking on site was easy and standard of $40 a day. We booked a king with a queen. We're a little surprised that the queen was a pull out (and very comfortable) but it was separate from the bedroom; the room also offered 1 1/2 baths. While it seems like the hotel decor is dated (only slightly) the staff was top notch. Walking distance to the White House (not sure other sites). The only negative (not the hotels fault and why I did not deduct points) is that being on Washington Circle from 4:45 to 7:30 the honking from traffic below is extremely loud. We were on the second floor so maybe that was it. But who is in a room that time of day so don't hold it against them. Planning another visit in a few months and I plan on staying here again. Stayed at a few places in DC before and this is my favorite. Staff, 2 bath, kitchen and location all make this family friendly. The only negative is the glass top on the coffee table is not attached and almost hit the floor. With kids that could be a danger but I am sure it could be removed.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 215

the location in the Foggy Bottom section of the city is pretty good. It was definitely a plus that the Metro Station was right across the street. The staff was very nice and accommodating when we checked in 5 hours early. With that said, this hotel might be one of the most out-dated hotels i have ever stayed in. The room was disgusting, and that's putting it lightly. We got this hotel via hotwire so we couldnt change hotels, but if i booked this through the hotel itself, i would have asked for my money back and moved to another hotel.

Room Tip: Dont say here.
