Stayed here for 4 days on a recent trip to DC. The hotel is very centrally located to most of the big tourist sites, although there are a lot of sights in DC. It is about 1 block from the White House, and is about a 10 minute walk to the National Mall, with the Smithsonians and the major memorials and monuments. Check in was fast and efficient and we were given a corner suite on the 8th floor as a Royal Ambassador. The room was very nice, as it used to be 2 rooms, but had been merged into one large one, with a small hallway linking the two sections. The decor is typical of an old style, historic hotel but is largely functional and useable. The bed was very soft and comfortable and the bathroom was well stocked with shampoos, soaps and other amenities. Housekeeping was efficient and never bothered or disturbed us while we were in the room, which is a nice change from some hotels where they nag you to clean the room. The lobby was very nicely decorated with cherry blossoms, as they were blooming at the time. The only downside was a very subpar room service, where the food took more than double the time we were told and some of it was cold upon arrival. Otherwise, the hotel made an excellent place to stay. Location was excellent and was about a 10 minute was to the Metro.
