Five-night stay for a conference in February 2014. It's a beautiful hotel with nicely appointed rooms. The restaurant was a nice place to eat, have drinks, and socialize. I had one of the best no-cheese pizzas (I am a vegan) ever! It was close to the Metro, a 24-hour CVS, Kramerbooks and Afterword Cafe, La Tomate, the Phillips Gallery (free on weekdays!). The staff were very helpful, friendly, and professional.
The breakfast buffet, however, was ridiculously expensive, even for a hotel. I opted not to get the buffet. Instead, I got a tea and a small bowl of oatmeal one morning, and it cost me $16.
I also think it's archaic to charge for in-room Internet in this day and age. And the fee for using the computer and printing was ridiculous, too, though I didn't really have a choice, as I was making last-minute changes to my paper and printing handouts.
Without the conference rate, it would have been a very expensive stay, so I probably wouldn't stay there again unless my imaginary sugar daddy was paying for it. But it was a nice experience overall.
