Reviewed 10 August 2014

Has a boutique hotel feel in a larger property. The red motif takes a little getting used to, but works overall. Good location, about a half-mile to the White House and about a mile to the National Mall, and with some nice restaurants within easy walking distance. Felt very safe walking around, even later at night. We tried to extend our stay additional night, but as that went into the weeknight stay category, it more than doubled the price of the room. Had a few challenges with the transfer service as were leaving, and the Bellman went way above and beyond in trying to help us resolve it - we were very appreciative of his efforts.

This is one of my favorite hotels to stay @ in DC because of It's red theme. I Love most of the Kimpton hotels because they're all themed in nature and they all have their own unique esthetic. I've stayed here so many times that I can't even count. Its great if you want to have a romantic evening with your sweetie and cute enough if you want to have a girls weekend.

The hotel is very clean but it's a little bit distant from the main attraction of the city.
Wifi doesn't work so well on the highest floor (we were on 10th)
Continental Breakfast was good, it offers fruits, yogurts, muffins, bread and a big choice of cereals.

We have stayed at this hotel a few times, and always go back. The location is great for restaurants and site seeing, and it is a ten minute walk to the metro. While it is not fancy and elaborate, it is clean, comfortable and the staff are friendly and helpful. As with most Klimpton hotels, there really is an element of "lighten up" and don't "don't take yourself so seriously" at this hotel. Love the animal print!

The hotel has a really good location. Close to The White House and tourist locations. The rooms are so big, beautiful, comfortable and clean. The personnel are really nice. I could recommend this hotel.

Great hotel.
Boutique styled rooms, with plenty of space.
Bathroom a bit on the small side, but function able.
Service good and they provide drinks all day long as guests come and go, with wine at a certain hour of the day. It gives the staff an opportunity to check everything is ok.
The best bit however is the location. Just 10m walk from the White House, and in a lovely neighbourhood with plenty restaurants on 17th and 18th. Felt very safe, even when out late at night.
Highly recommended, and we would definitely stay here again.

I live in NYC and am a frequent visitor to NYC, this time for the Africa Chiefs of State conference. I was so impressed with this first visit to this hotel that I mentioned it to numerous people. Imagine my gratification when I got back to my room last night and found a lovely note, snacks and a bottle of good wine from Gabriella and the hotel manager. The note thanked me for choosing the hotel. Location is ideal and everything is terrific. Bob Stebbings, rystebbin@aol.com
