Business trip

Overall everything was great. I did not bring my laptop, but had my iPhone with me, and in the hotel often I was not getting any bars. Outside the hotel the signal was great. The in-room guest binder said that on check out day, a folio would be slipped under my door, and then to use the quick check out button on the phone to check out. I never received the folio under my door, and pressing the checkout button on the phone only rang 20 times and no one picked up. I mentioned it at the front desk and the woman told me that the process had changed - I will get an email instead - but I never received the email either. So I had to wait on line and check out the old way.

Great location!

I booked this hotel because it was one of the few hotels that had a pool for my daughter. Turns out the pool was greatly disappointing however we got the bonus of a very conveniently located hotel. It's right across the street from the metro and from there you can go anywhere! Right down the road (within walking distance) is the Washington Monument where you can turn left to the Capitol and museums or right to the Lincoln Memorial and other beautiful monuments. Staff was friendly and helpful and the hotel is great for families and sightseers of all ages.

2 Days in Washington

Very nice hotel and within reasonable walking distance of many attractions. The rooms were very nice and exceptionally clean. Staff was friendly, upscale lobby and hotel. We also ate dinner there which was a nice casual atmosphere and good food. Parking is a little pricey, but other than that everything was great.

Excellent location, but charge too much for breakfast

Excellent location, next to the Metro, good restaurants and the White House, Smithsonian, etc. Beware that breakfast is not included in most rates. And it is too expensive for the quality of the food, which is just OK.

Perfect for business and pleasure

The hotel was the perfect location for our visit that included business and pleasure. It is located across the street from a metro station which allowed us to quickly and easily travel to the Pentagon for business. We had a good amount of free time during our stay and wanted the ability to walk to tourist sites. This hotel was a short walk to the White House, the Ellipse and buildings of the Smithsonian. The entire staff at the hotel was excellent and very customer service oriented. Every employee we encountered was friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean. We will make this our "go to" hotel for future D.C. trips.

Why we move out of Ritz Carlton

My friends and I was originally staying at Ritz Carlton, downtown DC. But an hour after we checked in, we felt like our money was not well spent-- they don't even have an microwave in the room! I am not trying to be mean- Ritz Carlton is a FIVE STAR hotel and it's beautiful indeed... But, when you are spending your parents' money on a Christmas trip, you have to think more than that! Some right away, I booked a hotel room in Hilton Garden Inn. I know it's WAY different from Ritz Carlton but the minute we moved in my friends and I were like "YEAH!!!" - clean room, decent amount of work space, microwave and a fridge! Btw, the gym at Ritz Carlton cost 15 dollars per day, while the one at Hilton Inn is free. Not mentioning the fact that Hilton Inn is only 3 blocks away from the Whitehouse and 7 minutes away (walking) from Chinatown!!!!! AWESOME!!!
