This is one of the finest, most comfortable hotels in the world. The rooms and bathrooms are on the small side for super luxury hotels, but the finish out and furnishings are absolutely first rate. The location next to the White House just couldn't be better. The hotel feels more like a boutique than a large hotel, but it is full service at the level of the best hotels in large international cities. The staff (with the possible exception of the Lafayette dining room) are wonderful, nice and highly competent. We found the senior restaurant staff to be somewhat rude, focusing their best service on locals who dine at the restaurant. You get the feeling that they are somewhat inconvenienced by your presence (a request for coffee before ordering breakfast was met with a loud groan and subsequent staffing change when our waiter with a marvelously aggrieved flourish announced to the maitre'd that he couldn't deal with our requests - although annoying the scene was fairly amusing). Having said that, the rest of the folks were quite nice, if less than prompt. But that is the only flaw in one of our favorite hotels anywhere. Be sure and visit the Off the Record Bar. One of the great hotel bars of the world.

All of our guest rooms exhibit the perfect combination of heritage, luxury, contemporary comfort and technology.
