"Great location for visiting the National Portrait Gallery, and just a block from the Metro. I arrived early; my requested room wasn't yet available, but I was offered another room that I accepted. Breakfast was a bit disappointing.2017-09-24"
"Close to the wax and spy museums. Everything about this hotel was perfect, from the location to the service. Clean room with comfortable beds. Room service food was good. All the employees were polite and helpful. Money well spent. Take advantage of guided tours that pick you up at the hotel.2015-07-16"

"This hotel wasn't the worst, but it was far from the best.2018-10-16"
"Excellent location, but I didn't think the quality of the room was worth the price. The double beds were quite narrow, and the pillows were flat as a board. The hotel was nice, but one doesn't sleep in the lobby. Pleasant staff.2015-09-02"
"Construction was underway at the hotel, and created a mess. It definitely impacted our stay.2015-04-07"
"Great location. The hotel concierge was helpful. The cafe was small, and the service was slow, but that was the only negative. We were pleased with every aspect of our stay. Bring lots of cash for tipping.2015-04-01"
"The hotel room was small but clean. Good exercise room. The restaurant food was less than mediocre, and the drinks were overpriced. Poor service, too; the service at the bar was far better.2019-05-16"

"Not such a good hotel stay. Someone's car horn went off intermittently from 5 AM until 7:45 AM the 1st morning. Later that night, someone's dog was barking for what seemed like hours. Bring ear muffs and some sleeping pills.2021-06-20"
"I stayed in a small, reasonably priced suite. The hotel clerk was helpful and responded well to our needs. The option of a hot breakfast in the dining room was nice, and the staff adhered to Covid safety measures. I highly recommend staying here.2020-11-24"
"Great hotel and staff. We arrived about 10 minutes after the wine happy hour ended, but were still given 2 nice glasses of wine to start off our visit. The room was clean. While we were out, our crated dog must have made noise, because we returned to find him with the front desk clerks. It was nice to see that they cared and he was happy with them. We'd definitely stay here again.2018-08-24"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
