    Fabulous 8.6 From 2,260 reviews

    Exceptional 10.0
    Loved it
    The whole room was huge, bigger than any hotel room I’ve stayed in in England. The bed was huge and very comfy. It had air conditioning so we weren’t hot during the night. The bathroom was nice with really good shower pressure. Only problem was there was no shampoo, but there was body lotion, hair conditioner, and body wash - I think the lack of shampoo may have just been an accident. In the morning the reception staff allowed us late checkout and we went up to the roof top pool! The bar wasn’t manned during the morning which was sad, but we were just so excited to cool off in the pool. There’s also a McDonald’s just outside it if you get hungry.

    A busy hotel that needs to try harder .
    A very busy hotel, just a short walk from the Aerospace Museum. The property has two restaurants and a Starbucks. I didn't try either restaurant but breakfast at Starbucks cost me around $15! D.C. is NOT cheap! One alternative to eating at the hotel is the four or so food carts that are parked around the corner, en route to the Aerospace museum. There's a good variety of cuisines available. My room was on the smaller side. As a Gold Elite member I would have expected an upgrade at the very least or a larger room.

    Good 6.0
    Good location, but can be noisy
    Great hotel for location to museums. Rooms were clean, few minor issues, first set of toiletries were left overs from the previous guests. Bed was very hard. Soundproofing was poor, heard every flushing toilet and were kept awake by the guests next door, sounded as though it was a large family reunion having quite a party until the early hours, this was for 2 out of three nights of our stay. Would recommend for location.
