With so many other choices in DC, this hotel should probably be bypassed. The location is less than desirable if your goal is to see the main DC attractions. Most rooms have terrible views-all of ours faced brick walls-, the rooms were hot, even with the A/C on as cold as it could go. Granted, it was in the high 80's during our stay and we were on an upper level floor, but the room temp was barely tolerable. We even switched rooms, and the issue remained. Also, do not expect coffee in the lobby in the mornings or anything similar in terms of "extras". The only coffee option is with the breakfast in the hotel's cafe. The breakfast is $15 per person-no other options. No concierge or other guest services except for a doorman and valet. The bathrooms are tiny, barely enough room to set down a toothbrush without having it fall right into the toilet. The staff is friendly and helpful
enough and the hotel is clean, however those two features did not make up for the other drawbacks. Although not awful, I would not return to stay here again if we visit DC in the future.
