Short Business trip

The location is excellent for seeing the sights, and easy access to the Metro. A bit pricey, but so close to everything. If you want to sightsee, you can't go wrong! Perhaps for a business traveler, with a short stay, a hotel near the airport might suffice. Perfect for families & couples!

Wonderful stay

The staff was very nice and friendly around the clock. The room was very clean and organized and had a table on wheels that I could move around the room to set up a mini-office that allowed to me to work on some of my business before going out to get done what I had come to DC to take care of. I would recommend this place for business stays, especially if your business is close to the national mall or a federal building.

Nice hotel

We were at the hotel for just one night, primarily to recover from our trip abroad before continuing our journey the next day. Pros: It was a nice, clean, peaceful place to stay. The location is great with many tourist attractions in DC at walking distance. They also have a well-stocked pantry for basic food/drinks (local stores can be hard to find in DC). Cons: None. A few things that they can do to improve customer experience: provide a microwave in their rooms, have a bottle of water in the room for their weary guests, add tv channels for kids in their package.

Awesome location! Very nice hotel!

The hotel is awesome. My brother had a knee injury so we looked for a hotel as near as possible from the museums. This hotel is literally one block away from the Air and Space museum! Although you pay extra for parking, your car will be safe and underground. Hotel staff was incredibly kind and the rooms were clean and well-kept. I will definitely come back to this hotel every time I am in DC!

Good hotel, Great location

Really easy walk to the Air and Space museum. The hotel restaurant has okay food and is reasonably priced since the kids eat for free. The only real grievance I had is with the air unit in the suite. It was rather noisy and rattled.

Excellent location at a great rate

I needed to be within walking distance of the National Mall over the weekend and this hotel is just the perfect combination of a comfortable, clean hotel and location, location, location! The neighborhood is safe, the staff are super nice, and the room – although not as nice as some hotels I've stayed at – provided everything I needed for my stay. Most importantly, it's close to the Metro so it's super easy to get around town without a car. I would definitely come back here again.

Busboys and Poets at 5th and K – very cool and awesome food, especially for a vegetarian. I've been to the 14th St location as well, but liked the 5th St better. http://www.busboysandpoets.com/about/5th-k
