“Great location - Affordable”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

This hotel is in a great location in Capitol Hill - the staff was extremely helpful in telling us where we could park the car and attempt to avoid the $44 valet parking charge. The Capitol Hill area is lovely and slightly out of the hustle and bustle of the rest of the city so it was nice and quiet. A short walk to 8th street where there are so many amazing restaurants - Belga Cafe is a favorite. Really nice to get a room in the city for under $250. Wine happy hour and breakfast provided.

I stayed four nights in this hotel in May 2014. What a great stay! The location was convenient for my business-oriented stay, the meeting venue was nearby and everything was smooth and easy. The hotel has a very pleasant, helpful staff. The wifi was really fast and whenever a little problem occurred with it (my own fault!) or any other help was needed, the helpfull staff was there right away to assist me happily.

The hotel had a beautiful lobby and the room was spacious and nicely decorated. The air condition was efficient and the bed was comfortable. And the breakfast was just superb - who needs lunch after it?! If you still do, there are a couple of very nice restaurants just around the block. The neighborhood around the hotel was beautiful as well.

It was easy to get a cab if I wished to see the city and the staff was always there to help me get one. The nearest metro station was just around the block.

One great thing I really need to mention about this hotel is that the hotel even has a complimentary wine tasting every day at 5PM. Wow, what a service!

Wine in the lobby during HH is nice but the lack of parking is a problem. We stuffed our car a cool 20 minute walk from the hotel at Union Station. It was not a huge deal, nice walk by the Supreme Court to get there, but it was not convenient in any way. The hotel looks to be just completing a renovation. Maybe they can swap in some more comfortable beds while they are at it?

Hello tons0miles,

Thank you for visiting and for posting a review of your stay here on Tripadvisor. I'm terribly sorry that we were not able to park your car on site during your visit. We don't typically run out of space in our lot. However, it does happen from time to time and it's a little unfortunate. We did just complete a renovation and changed out most of the beds. I'd love to hear more about your sleep experience with us. Thanks again for the feedback. We truly appreciate it,

Sincerely,

Stayed here with my husband and son while I was at a conference in mid April. Great location for visiting the main attractions of DC! Walked to the museums (note: can take the metro nearby as well - or at least coming back as its a somewhat uphill walk back). Service was excellent and friendly. Breakfast was sufficient (fresh fruit, toast, cheese, deli meats, cereal, juice, coffee, hard boiled egg...a bit too hard if you ask me).
Room was lovely and spacious!
I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Our room was great! I didnt hear anyone complain about other rooms...

I have stayed at this hotel for years, and have watched its metamorphosis into the modernized establishment it is today. Many of the staff have been there for years, and make one feel very welcome. The location is superb for those doing business on the Hill, and there are wonderful restaurants nearby. In the span of one block one can walk in the park, attend church, partake of spa services, eat and drink fabulous food (or order in great Chinese/Thai or Mediterranean, if one is so inclined). The lagniappe is a dear senior fellow, Mr. Chubbs, who often provides cab service from this hotel. Mr. Chubbs gets my vote for the best cab driver in D.C.! Keep up the good work, CHH folks.

Room Tip: The corner suites are spacious and have nice windows.

I was in this hotel in the end of October 2013. This hotel near Congress Library,subway, Capitol and park around it . 15 minutes to airport by car. There were a lot of houses in Victorian`s style around hotel,like fairytale. Room was clean and comfortable with free wifi and little kitchen . On the first floor -free cocktails coffee and tea every day. And, of course, kind and smily personal on resepsion) It is really good place for travelers in the centre of Washington DC.

Elegant and modern with friendly and efficient staff. The rooms are spacious and include all necessities. Breakfast was amazing along with the location to all the must see sights. We stayed on a busy weekend with Cherry Blossom and the hotel met all our needs during this busy season.

Hello Aussiesalso,

I'm glad you were able to enjoy The Cherry Blossom Festival and a few days on The Hill. There's no better time to visit, especially if you catch them in full bloom. We definitely have a winning combination here with our location and the service at the hotel. I appreciate you taking the time to post a review and we'd love to see you again next year.
