This is really a great hotel!!!! We have stayed at this hotel once before (April 2011). We were treated as royalty I thought!!! Our trip in April my husband and I were celebrating our 6th anniversary. Kyle the hotels front desk clerk helped us with a great resturant (Bobby Van's) it was perfect!! Thank You Kyle. Our trip this past weekend was a trip for our grandson Julius. We had a great train ride from Richmond Va to DC. Arrived at hotel we went up to our room on the 8th floor and they were finishing their renovations everything in the room was brand new... We felt safe and comfortable...Anyway we did not get to talk to Kyle this trip...But he new we were there and he acknowledge us...that meant alot!!!! Thank You for another great experience!!!!! To let the hotel manager know you have a great guy (Kyle) on your team......Tracy

I stayed at this hotel for six nights for business. The hotel is located in the Thomas Circle area of D.C. and is about four flat blocks of walking to either the Convention Center or McPherson Square Metro Stops. It is about two blocks from numerous restaurants of all types on 14th Street. There is no reason to have a car as everything is within walking or metro distance. The area is very safe.

The hotel itself is undergoing renovations although they appear to be taking place slowly. My room as on the small side but had new carpeting, new tile in the bathroom, and all new furnishings. The room itself was comparable to a quality three star hotel and was very clean. The air conditioning worked well although it was a little on the loud side. Wi-Fi was free and had excellent speed. The room was suprisingly quiet. About the only negative at all was the black out curtains are of a strange design and no matter what will not totally block the light.

They served a free breakfast in the morning and it is the usual free hotel breakfast chaos. It was crowded, seating was tight and the supply of food was often low. However, free is still free so it is hard to complain. Staff at the hotel was friendly and provided quick service.

In short, this is a good place to stay for those watching their pennies. I would have no problem staying here again.

A friend and I made a last-minute trip to DC over Memorial Weekend. The concierge was very helpful with making late-night arrangements since our bus didn't make it into Union Station until 12:30 am. The room was on the smaller side, but since we weren't planning on staying in the room besides to sleep, it didn't bother us one bit. The pictures on the website doesn't do it ANY justice. The king-size bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean. The location was in a quiet and safe neighborhood, which was a big concern for two women traveling. The down-side was not being able to find a place to eat after arriving so late. Overall, I would definitely recommend staying here, especially if you'll be visiting downtown DC.

This hotel is well located in the center of DC, you can walk to everywhere in the city from it. It’s near two Metro stations and The White House. If you want to go shopping, it’s adjacent to all principal stores… Macy’s, Filene’s, H&M, Guess, Barne’s and Noble. And if you need to attend a congress in the Convention Center… that's by far the best option!
The bedrooms are spacious, clean, very good and have a considerable size beds and also free wi-fi. The employees are very polite, calm and educated. Every day, every afternoon there's free coffee and cookies and easy access to a computer at the reception. There are various bakeries and restaurants near, two or three blocks only. The Manager Mario is extremely thoughtful and considerate as all the staff. I recommend a stay at this hotel when visiting Washington DC.

We stayed at this hotel for only one night. The staff at the reception was very kind and gave us tips on what to do and see in DC. Free coffee in the lobby and a computer with free internet access, + free WiFi. The location is good. We arrived by metro to the Convention center and walked for about 10-15 mins to the hotel. We also took a stroll downtown which took us about as much time. The rooms are clean and decent, not cozy or anything, but fine.
We didn't walk around at night but the area and neighbourhood was tidy and we felt very safe.
Good value for money!

I was very pleased with my one night stay here. Tasteful redecoration is ongoing but doesn't affect the guest and the new beds, furniture, newly tiled bathrooms and flat screen TV give the appearance of a boutique inn. Staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast room had comfortable tables and chairs (all with arms) and the food choices were fine. I'm glad I didn't spend 3 or 4 times the rate for a room elsewhere. I expect to return to this gem when I'm in DC again. They even have valet parking.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are biggest, two walls of windows.

Hotel location is premium. From hotel you are only a few blocks away from the monuments and great restaurants. Carpets and furniture in the rooms are new. It seems as if the hotel is also refreshing the hallways and corridors. Staff was attentive, breakfast was more than adequate. I will choose this property again when visiting Downtown DC.
