Business turned Casual

Had a conference in DC over the weekend. My wife came with me and while I was busy listening to people talk she was able to sight see and after a couple of days we got to spend the rest of the weekend vacationing. The location of this hotel was perfect. Across the street from a metro stop and just a couple blocks from the White House. The staff were very friendly and the concierge at the front was helpful and knowledgeable about things to do and the best ways to get around. Rooms were clean but nothing special to add a flare or make the service stand out. Compared to other hotels I've stayed at I enjoyed the baggage check option, we had to check out in the morning but our flight didn't leave until late afternoon, so we were able to leave our luggage with the hotel staff and go sight seeing for a few extra hours before we needed to head out to the airport on the very nearby metro station.

Went to a restaurant called the Woodward Table just a couple blocks from the hotel. Very good appetizers and my wife loved her filet mignon.

Great weekend getaway

I am a business traveler and expect a lot from a hotel... This one definitely delivered. From the day early arrival at 2:30am to a late check out at 1pm they were very accommodating. The wife and I have special dietary needs and the fridge and microwave were an excellent touch that most more upscale hotels lack. Perfect for the epilepsy walk!

Perfect location, awesome staff, terrific food.

We were met at the desk by Eddie, who promptly checked us in, asked if we needed area info, and filled us in on pool, gym n snack locations within the hotel. We had to get a rollaway for my niece, and she said it was so comfy. Perfect locale. Across from McPherson Station, or the friendly doorman will hail a cab for you. Food was good in restaurant, bartender not so great on margaritas! Larger rooms than normal DC Hotels. Very safe area, lots of bakeries n snack restaurants nearby. Waking distance to most of the historical sites.

Try Old Ebbitts Grille a few blocks away. A little.bit of DC history, and a fantastic brunch.

All nice staff but one, Mr. Eddy

Nice Hotel with all nice staff but check in person Eddy. He was so rude to me, I had tears in my eyes. It has been many years since I have encountered such a mean man and I was not accustomed. My room was very nice and the metro was right across the street. I will stay at this hotel again, and if Mr. Eddy is working I'll request another staff member for checking in.

Great quick pick

Went out partying in DC for a birthday party, decided we wanted to party until after the metro closed. We found a quick place that was reasonable priced (for DC) at $170 including this site's $20 fee. It was quick, clean, safe, close by, and everyone was very friendly. Definitely would recommend this hotel.

Weekend getaway

My boyfriend and I decided to get away for a 3 day weekend and check out the sites in Washington. This hotel was less than a mile from everything we wanted to see. The staff was so friendly and helpful! The rooms were clean. The bed was a little uncomfortable. All in all we had a great time. Would definitely visit again.
