Just came back from a 6 night stay in this hotel and overall I would recommend this hotel. The location is excellent. Very near lots of cafes and restaurants. Walking distance to the metro or if you like a walk some of the major sites. Check in was quick and easy which was great after a long journey. I requested a room on a high floor which I didnt get - my room was on the 2nd floor. Room was very good for a single person though even though the windows didnt open which was very strange. There was a second layer of glass outside the windows so you couldnt see out of them or open them. Very odd. The room had 2 double beds, nice bathroom and a nice kitchenetter which was great. My coffee machine was broken and never got fixed even though I called about it on the day I arrived but there is a Starbucks on every corner so it was easy enough to find a coffee. I didnt eat in the hotel as I did my own breakfast and was out until late evening every day. For supplies for your little kitchen (if you want them) there is a Safeway on Corcoran Ave just around the corner of the hotel or a really nice Wholefoods within walking distance. I used the metro everyday even though the Q street entrance to the Dupont Circle stop is the most terrifying escaltor I have ever seen but there is a lift. The metro is very accessible.
Overall very happy with my stay and would recommend it to other travellers. Good location, loved the small kitchen and comfortable beds. Downsides are windows that wouldnt open, broken appliance that wasnt fixed and noisy neighbours and cleaners. Cleaners were very loud in the morning even though I had my do not disturb sign on my door. You could also hear conversations and cooking from the rooms next door but no parties or anything. Bring earplugs
Personally I also found the Welcome Home gesture every evening irritating but thats just me :)
