I chose this hotel for its location mainly. It was around the corner from the Dupont Circle Metro, and the White House is in walking distance. The hotel is very nice, well decorated and the beds are comfortable.
However a few things...we asked for a coffee machine for the room. This was brought up very quickly; however there were no instructions regarding use. We gave it a go, but gave up in favour of sightseeing. The next morning, it was removed by the cleaner and not replaced. We decided not to approach the front desk about this, as we weren't that convinced it was worth our time. The staff were not oozing with friendliness.
We did have a drink in the bar the first night; drinks aren't cheap as you would expect, and the bar was heaving. It was a Saturday night, so it was busy until late. Unfortunately our room was directly above the bar. I would have asked to move rooms for our 3 night stay, if I wasn't already using ear plugs to block out mum's snoring! It was the weekend after all, though was still noisy on Monday night.
We ate breakfast on our last morning in the restaurant; it was nice but over priced. The worst thing, besides my headache that morning was the service. The waitress just looked fed up to be there..no smile, and everything was a hassle. It wasn't the sort of service I expect when in the States.
Unfortunately I wouldnt choose to stay here again, if I return to Washington. Luckily the service received elsewhere in this great city made up for this.
