    My reservation with Booked.net was for a double bedroom for 2 people, with breakfast included. However the express check out bill, included cost of breakfast plus 10 dollars per day for the second occupant. I claimed to the front desk and they re-issued the bill with the correct amount. Why can´t they do this from the very beginning?

    Hotel itself is fairly good. Avoid to stay during conventions as prices are going high.

    I had an internet outage but receptionist managed to fix it quite fast.

    Personnel at the reception were very pleasant & helpful. Also the staff that cleaned the room were very nice. The room was spacious, bright & pleasantly decorated. There was fresh coffee around the clock in lobby. The parking was a bit expensive, but that is to be expected in the area. The atmosphere all around was friendly & lively. We had a very very nice stay.

    We liked everything about the hotel.

    Great location for sightseeing,and only a block to some great restaurants and bars!

    I like its close proximity to the White House and other landmarks and the closest Metro station is within walking distance.

    The beds were very comfortable and clean

    I got a smoking room but the cleaning staff twice took away the ashtray when they cleaned the room and I had trouble getting another one brought up.

  • Older travelers

    Efficient and friendly manager and staff

    This is no criticism of the hotel itself but the hop on/off double deck tour bus which stops in front of the hotel turned out to be very inefficient. Better to walk to another tour bus company route or the nearest Metro station.f

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    All the staff were extremely friendly, polite and helpful. The restaurant was top notch. Why go out somewhere else to eat. The food was great. The special for dinner happened to be a steak, and the waitress was genuinely concerned that it was done exactly the way I like it... Pink in the middle, no red. At breakfast my eggs benedict-florentine were nicely done. They brought me hashbrowns, which I mentioned I don't eat. No problem. The waitress brought me sliced tomatoes to replace them. My wife does not drink coffee, but she had a third of a cup from the carafe. They charged us. She mentioned it, and they took it off the bill. One morning my wife made a poor choice ordering a greasy skillet fry. When she said she didn't like it, they took it off the bill with no hesitation and with an apology. What a friendly place. Great location for seeing the sights. A short walk to subways. Tourist bus across the street (but don't take it.. Not well marked of hop-on and hop-off ). Excellent quality hotel.

    The location was great as it was just a few blocks from the Mall in downtown DC.

    The only complaint I had was that the website stated there was a pool to use, but it was not open until the week after I was there.

    The friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff members in the hotel and restaurant. We were made to feel very welcomed. Also, the location is great, especially if you are comfortable walking as it is only a bit north of the white house, in a safe, vibrant neighborhood.

    The Staff.

    The hotel was old. We had to have our air conditioner replaced while we were there due to it not being able to cool the room at all.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    The staff was excellent at the hotel. They allowed us to check in early and also allowed me to keep my car in the hotel parking garage for a few hours after checking out. The room was very clean and comfortable.

    There was some renovation going on so one of the elevators was dirty.

    Location was okay

    underwhelmed by room, asked for one kings bed but got 2 small double beds. No late night dining.
