“A real gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

The hotel was very central, although not that close to the metro-- we walked to the White House in about 15 minutes. Decor quite modern. I loved the pool on the 1st floor rooftop - with views of an old church across the street and lots of sky and places to sit and have a drink, too (although there were no changing facilities, so you get to wander through the lobby in your suit). Our room was small, but the staff was superfriendly, and the restaurant was quite decent (although cheaper breakfast is a quick hop across the circle to a deli named after a famous TV series). We just left the car there and walked or taxi'd to the major museums, and did a hop on/hop off bus (partially just to stay cool.) Would definitely book again.

Just off of Internet previews I booked this hotel. I was really glad I did! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I loved my room and my view! I would definitely stay there again! The hotel was close to Union Station and the Verizon Center. The reason I came to DC was to see New Edition in concert! The hotel and concert were a 10! The only thing that I would change.... I would have liked a souvenir with a picture of the hotel, ie. key chain or post card.

the staff is standoffish and the restaurant's food and service is less than average.
the room was clean and the bed comfy. we enjoyed having a balcony even though it brought in the busy city sounds of sirens and traffic.
not enough drawers for your clothes and the coffee maker is in the bathroom. the bathroom fan was broken.

We found this hotel to be clean, nicely appointed, with an attentive staff. The location is only a few minutes walk to the Metro, and close to some good restaurants. We enjoyed being able to sit outside by the pool (when it wasn't too hot). We only ate at the restaurant once for the breakfast buffet, which was standard fare, but quite expensive. You can do better in the neighborhood for a nice continental at a cafe. Overall, I would recommend this hotel and would definitely visit again.

This hotel is near downtown, and it's a short walk to the McPherson Square Metro stop. The room was nice! The front desk staff was very helpful, and even brought up a toothbrush and toothpaste since one of us forgot it! The outdoor pool area was also really nice. We ate at the restaurant they had there, and they were very friendly. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in DC. It has a great location, and the staff was cordial!

Was traveling to Washington, D.C. in Early June with the Korean War Hero Flight, Buffalo County, Nebraska and was honored to get to stay at this motel. Their hospitality was amazing and served our group wonderful meals. Decian Kealy General Manager was always in reach if we needed anything. We were very well taken care of. Would highly recommend this hotel.
