“Pleasantly surprised.”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

Front Desk staff was great! Rooms were a tad small, but it's an older building so it's more than understandable. I really liked the decor personally. Valet parking was a little slow and I advise anyone checking out to give more than the thirty minute required notice. Housekeeping was polite, internet connection was fast and reliable. Overall I am very happy and value was modest compared to the other hotels in the neighborhood. Great place to stay for a family get away, everything's within walking distance.

If other hotels were run like this one, we'd all benefit. Fast, free wifi, complimentary breakfast, tea/coffee available all day, access to free business centre, great staff, great rooms.

It has a fitness centre and lauromat on site. I've stayed in a few hotels this trip, and overall, this was the best. It's by second time staying here, and it gets better each time. Highly recommend it.

My husband and I stayed here for one night recently. Pros: Continental breakfast! The breakfast was really nice, and that, honestly was the reason I chose to stay there. It was Easter weekend, and I thought we may have trouble finding a place to grab breakfast on Easter morning. The hotel breakfast was perfect, with lots of choices to suit both my husband and myself. Other pros: Clean, quiet, convenient location, desk staff was friendly. Temperature in room was good, as we were able to crack a window to let some air in. (I've stayed at hotels where the rooms were stuffy even at the lowest AC setting, and the windows did not open, making it hard to sleep.) Cons: Room was REALLY small, but fortunately we did not have many bags. It was fine for one overnight. Our room happened to have a terrible view (overlooked the structure attached to the building which housed a bunch of rusting air conditioners, some trash, and a broken rusty fan). Check in was a bit slow (only one person at the desk), as was the valet service, but with patience on our part and friendliness on theirs, it was fine. Valet parking was $30, which is expensive but "par for the course" for city hotels. Overall, it was nice and I would stay there again. Might request a larger room if I were staying longer.

I attend a Convention annually in Washington and have stayed at a variety of hotels in this area. This year, we are on a budget and so i chose the Comfort inn. Based upon the price, my expectations were for a clean room within walking distance to the Convention Center and not much else.
What a plesant surprise! our company booked 5 rooms and we were thrilled! The decor was beautiful, the rooms were clean, the hotel was quiet and breakfast was very appealing and adequate. I will definitely be back!

Spent one day and night at hotel and the location was great. It was within walking distance to the convention center and subway. The rooms were a little dark but comfortable. They had full breakfast which was nice and coffee at all times in the lobby. Reasonably priced, friendly staff and would recommened this hotel for a short or extended stay.

My husband recently attended a conference in downtown Washington, DC. The event hotel was rediculously expensive to stay in so we looked for hotels which were close to the meeting site. We chose the Comfort Inn Downtown and were dellighted with our stay. The location was perfect - close to his meeting site and within walking distance to many great restauants, the Smithsonian and the memorials. We did not need a cab or car for the entire 3 days. Our room was updated and very comfortable. Breakfast and internet were included in the room fee. The staff was pleasant and very helpful. We will definately stay here again.

Spent five nights and were very happy with top to bottom service, cleaniness and decor including in the breakfast area. For a small hotel, everything is nicely laid out and fresh cookies in the lobby every afternoon was a great touch.
