If you're thinking there's anything grand about this place, there's not, but I didn't mind. You can tell it's an old place that they've brought back to life with paint and new finishes. It's got an older deco feel.
What's important to me is that it is clean and well-maintained. I found it quiet too, which was most important to me. My room (402) was quite large with a kitchenette, a small living space, and even a bit of a dressing room. And this is a good place to stay if you want to be walking distance to Dupont Circle.
I do wish my pillow was a little higher quality... a bit lumpy. But that's just a tiny complaint and you could always bring your own. Oh, and I cannot stand when a shower doesn't have a complete door or curtain-- it was one of those half glass wall things. I always find those cold. But the bathroom was small enough I could keep the heat in.
