We stayed here while in Washington DC for the Fourth of July celebrations. We chose this hotel because it was close to the National Mall and we could just walk to and from the celebrations without dealing with the mess on the Metro due to all of the people. We checked in without any problems and found a friendly, helpful staff at the front desk who promptly and efficiently checked us in. Our first impression was that this hotel was in a nice quiet neighborhood, was modern, and clean. We walked in and found our room to be equally as clean, well appointed, and well laid out. We liked that this hotel had higher end amenities that you don't see at other hotels, such as imported toiletries, bath robes, an in room safe, an umbrella for your use, a Keurig machine, and a set of ceramic plates, mugs, saucers, and real dinking glasses. The bathroom was large, clean, and had good hot water with good water pressure. The beds were very comfortable and supportive. We enjoyed our stay in our room through and through. The only minor complaint I have is that housekeeping left dirty drinking glasses and mugs in our room without replacing them when cleaning our room. Not a huge deal. The main issue we had was that the breakfast area, as it seems with all hotels in the summer, is too small. The breakfast area had a nice layout of food, salami, cheese, home made breads, cereals, bagels, fruit and yogurt, and coffee, teas, and juices. The staff did a good job laying out the food, refilling the food, and clearing dishes. The thing that really annoyed me about the breakfast area is other rude tourists. One family in particular was taking up a table for 8 people and were clearly done eating breakfast and chose to sit back for over a half an hour talking politics while they saw that other people hadn't even had a chance to eat and were patiently waiting for a table. I know it's not practical, but I wish staff would enforce a no camping policy. Eat and then have the class to get up and give your table to someone else. This is not the fault of the hotel, but it was still annoying just the same. The room temperature was also very warm in the breakfast area both days. I realize that there are a lot of people in a small room and that there are toasters at work, but it didn't feel as though the AC was on at all in the dining rooms. We didn't use the valet parking system so I can't comment about this. Overall, I would stay here again. After all it is summer vacation in a big city, crowds are going to be inevitable.
