I quite liked this hotel. Pretty comfortable overall. Close to the metro, and lots of fun food and strolling options in Dupont. Also, a nice 20 minute walk to Metro Center on a temperate day. There are a few things though that make it fall just short of an A. First, they either seem to have way too many people standing around the front door doing nothing, or no one at all. I had no one to help me with enormous bag, plus their front door is small, heavy, and awkward to navigate with luggage. Second, as someone else noted below, they ask you for your preference of newspaper. I said Washington Post. Of course, of the four nights I stayed there, two came with USA Today, and two came with no paper at all. You shouldn't ask if you're not going to make an effort to honor the request. Final negative, there's a LOT of hall noise, and you can hear it very clearly. I was near the elevator, and every night, there were a lot of young people going out. Must be close to graduation or something. I was up pretty late working every night, but if I had been trying to sleep, I would have been pretty irritated.
All these issues, except for the thin walls, are pretty easy to fix, and I would gladly stay here again.
