The location was great, being so close to historical sites, shopping districts, and lots of restaurants. The hotel was clean and the room was spacious, comfortable, and classy. I was worried about two things from some negative reviews: breakfast and noise. Even though a lot of rooms face 8th street, our bed was on the other side of the room and was quiet. The only thing to be aware of is that there is a subway system that runs beneath the building and while I felt light rumblings (and couldn't hear it), I can't imagine staying on the first floor. We stayed in room 301. The breakfast was adequate: cereal, OJ, milk, bagels, pastries, coffee. The internet was very, very spotty, so beware.
Lenka, the woman concierge and front desk person, was really great. One of their other front desk men mumbled a lot though he was very courteous-- I couldn't really understand or hear anything he said to us. My only suggestion would be to have someone at the front desk more often. Someone was there 50% of the time.
I would recommend staying here, but only if you get a deal. We got the midweek special (buy two nights and get the third free). And take the bus or train. Parking is expensive, at $15 a day and at least $20 overnight.
