I met 2 former high school friends here for a long weekend in May. We each had our own rooms and each was delighted. The hotel is lovely, the rooms very large and well appointed with lovely linens, a very modern bathroom, flat screen tv and minibar/refrigerator. Each room was configured a little differently, but all were wonderful. Both the reservation process and check-in were friendly and efficient. Everyone was super helpful.
The hotel is not located right downtown, but is near the intersection of Connecticut Ave. and Calvert Street. There is a metro stop about 1 block away, on the Red Line. Restaurants line both sides of the street. You can chose your cusinne--from Afghan to Italian and everything in between. The area is safe and vibrant . We enjoyed the outdoor cafes and people-watching, and the downtown area with museums and monuments was just a quick metro ride away. Although we didn't visit it, the National Zoo is also in the neighborhood.
We thought the hotel restaurant prices were a bit high, so we opted for the local cafes for breakfast and dinners.
One friend drove her car and parked it at the hotel lot, which I think was about $28 a day.
I really recommend this hotel. It's huge and does a lot of conventions and business meetings, but was perfect for 3 women friends as well. My next visit will be to take my husband there for a long weekend.
