My boyfriend surprised me with a trip to DC for Christmas and had booked us a room with a view in this wonderfully old, amazing hotel. We got there the day after Christmas, so the hotel lobby was still decorated and everything was just gorgeous. Our room, which was on the 7th floor, was comfortable, very clean, and had a great view of the Washington Monument and PA Avenue, with the National Mall, the White House, and the National Christmas Tree just steps away. There's a great little bar on site, but for even more of the DC "atmosphere" and some great dining as well, I recommend walking right around the block to Old Ebbit Grill on 15th Street, NW.
Expect to be treated well at this hotel, right down to coming back to your room to find the bed turned down, chocolates on the pillow, and the in-room Ipod player/Radio/Clock set to soft, romantic classical music.
Not recommended for families with "very active" children.
