    Hotel location is excellent; walk to restaurants, the National Spy Museum, monuments, and Smithsonian museums. Room was clean. Staff was friendly, and the concierge was helpful.2015-01-23
    Near Verizon Center - lots of construction underway - all the employees were friendly and helpful - we had to wait 25 minutes for the valet to bring our car in the morning - great hotel.2011-02-01
    Close to Verizon Center - bed was comfortable - good place to stay.2011-02-01
    Beds and pillows were awful - had to ask for fresh towels 2 days in a row - I walked down 9 flights of stairs due to a false fire alarm, and 15 minutes later the alarm went off again - terrible hotel experience.2010-03-01
    Close to the Metro station, art museum, and spy museum; lots of restaurants nearby - room was comfortable and clean - decor was dated - I was able to leave my luggage and car at the hotel after checkout time - good hotel.2009-12-01

    Hotel was across the street from the convention center. Seemed overpriced for a small room with a stained carpet. No doors on the tiny closet. Didn't like having a sink outside the bathroom. Staff was nice and friendly.2015-03-05
    Close to everything, including the convention center. Nice, quaint hotel in a great location. The downfall was that the room was very small and the paint scheme made it feel claustrophobic. It was clean, though, and the bed was comfortable. The TV was too small, but the fridge was a nice touch, and the drinks and snacks inside were reasonably priced. Nice bathroom. Staff was extremely friendly, courteous, and helpful. Good bar and restaurant. A great alternative to chain hotels.2015-02-27
    Nice atmosphere - good furniture - dinner was too expensive.2010-08-01
    Good location and rates - poor check-in service.2009-05-01
    Walk to everything - hotel was small, historic, and charming - AC was shut off for the season; it was uncomfortably warm in the room.2009-03-01
