    • 8.0.Very good

      Good location only 1 mile from White House. On a busy intersection so a little noisy traffic wise. Staff friendly and helpful. Room maid a bit erratic, we removed the quilt from the bed and just used the sheet and blanket as it was quite warm in the room and the next day we were left with just the sheet the blanket had disappeared from the room.

      1). Clean, pleasant staff. The food was good. Always piping hot with quick efficient service. 2). Lovely rooftop pool but enjoyment marred by the permanent strong food smells from the extractor fans. 3). Bathroom ridiculously small with inward opening door almost touching toilet. We managed with 2 adults, (one in, one out), but the room would be impossible to use if a person required assistance of another. 4). Air conditioning system is antiquated; a huge box under the window. When switched on the noise made resembled a generator; I was unable to sleep with it in operation! 5). It would be helpful maps of the city & transport systems were available for Guests. They seemed to be in short supply around the city & having them provided at reception would have assisted us in making plans/familiarising ourselves with the area. 6). We discovered other Guests were staying on a B&B basis, (we were room only). Why weren't we offered a deal upon arrival so this option was available to us & we could 'upgrade'? We shared the restaurant with Guests serving themselves from a breakfast buffet, but had to order separately from a menu; madness!

      The cleanliness of the room and its layout was excellent - I especially appreciated the extra duvet as my husband likes the air conditioning on during the night and I find it too cold! No other place that we stayed in 2 weeks had this. The staff on reception were very helpful - we were able to check in before midday which was a very welcome surprise, and we got our first city map. And our waitress, Carlota, was a star, friendly and helpful - thank you. A bigger pool would have been appreciated as it's a big hotel, but my son really enjoyed it nonetheless. Thank you for a great stay.

      Hotel was functional. Great place to stay. Staff were very friendly. One thing that bothered me. There was never any towels by the pool and everytime we asked they said they were coming or in the wash! We were using our clean towels from our room. Other than that the hotel was in a great location.

      Very clean room, hotel staff were mostly very helpful, private parking garage below the hotel was very secure but in my view overly expensive,

      Comfortable

      Good quality hotel with exceptional service. You can give the restaurant a miss, as the food is average and the beers are flat. Lots of options for food and drinks close-by. Otherwise rooms are quite large and have all the amenities. Comfortable beds. Hotel is walking distance to all the Washington Central attractions.

      Location Fine For Us and Easy Parking

      Very good welcome - room was ready early. Asked for quiet room and allocated top floor but facing road. As a light sleeper, the traffic/emergency sirens (not often) did mean that I didn't sleep that well. Parking under the hotel - no problem - plenty of space. Concierge guys were very good/helpful. Hotel about 20 minutes walk from the White House, so fine for us walkers. We had a nice dinner with good food and service at the Commissary restaurant just 400 metres from the hotel at 1443 P Street NW. Parking expensive at circa $40-50/night, but that seems the norm in Washington.

      The Hotel was very central with all facilities. Food was above average, coffee in room with ice and drinks close to the room. ironing and a microwave in the room was a bonus. Highly recommended, a fabulous place to stay in Washington.
