Edge of town friendly stay

Very friendly hotel within walking distance of the main areas. Highly recommend the hotel as the staff are more than helpful, the bar/restaurant serve good food and beer and the room very comfortable.

Couples city break

The room was massive - we had a suite with kitchenette and sofa which was perfect to relax in after hard sightseeing. Location was ideal for public transport links and walking to the attractions and also on a quite residential road. The staff were all very nice and helpful, especially Dante on reception and the doorman Kaiki(??).

Convenient Hotel

This hotel is pretty convenient in its location to subway (Foggy Bottom) and grocery stores. I have used it before and will do so again. However I do feel that it is pricey but perhaps understandable because it is DC after all and a lot of things are a rip-off (especially the mannerless taxi drivers) for the visitors. The one point worth mentioning in particular regard to this hotel is the bell staff, who are completely useless. They are good in their disappearing act or when they are around, they look like they would rather see a tip in your hand FIRST, then offer their service. The hotel needs to improve this aspect . Secondly, the breakfast is far too expensive for what is provided. It is uninspiring and remains the same every day. The hotel needs to review this.

Business Trip

This was a good hotel, not exceptional. Good location and within easy reach of metro station and grocery stores. But i thought it was rather overpriced for what it delivered. There is no proper restaurant at the facility, an italian restaurant that doubles up as serving buffet breakfast and dinner. The breakfast is overpriced for the same daily fare it offers. The dinner menu similarly is overpriced limited and has no range in variety. What I found really annoying was that the reception area was being renovated so check in was located to the first floor. But no staff had the common sense to put a notice at the front door informing arriving guests about this. One guest even went away because he thought the hotel was closed. I pointed this out to the receptionist who stated "yes you are right, we should have put a notice at the front."

A welcoming hotel in a pleasant area

Very helpful desk staff, nice fast free wi-fi, and a large, quiet, comfortable suite. A nice touch to have a radio alarm with a slot at the top for my iPod. Air conditioning was easy to control and not too noisy. It was good value for money, partly I suspect because it doesn't provide facilities like a pool and gym, which i never use when staying in a hotel. When staying in hotels that charge more per room, I often feel I am subsidizing those who do use the free leisure facilities.

Hyvä hotelli

Hotelli on hyvällä paikalla lähellä metroasemaa, kävelymatka Lincolnin muistomerkille on reilu kilometri. Hotellin lähellä on paljon hyviä ruokaravintoloita, ympäristö tuntuu turvalliselta. Tilavassa huoneessa oli jääkaappi, kahvinkeitin ja mikroaaltouuni. Henkilökunta oli tosi ystävällistä.
