    Fabulous 8.6 From 2,105 reviews

    Good 6.0
    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.

    Exceptional 10.0
    Convenient hotel
    Had a good stay with easy access to all the main attractions in the area. Slight downside- not so close to eating places
    Leigh, gbRomance trip
    Very good 8.0
    Perfect location for a family weekend in DC
    What a convenient location to explore the Mall! We intentionally stayed here and walked to the Natural History Museum (about 4 blocks away), the Air & Space Museum (about 2 blocks away) and the Native American Museum (about 2 blocks away). The rooms were clean, although the carpets could have been a little nicer. The staff was fantastic, and the breakfast downstairs was always nice and had something for everyone.

    Very good 8.0
    Great location, own parking, restaurant and bar 2 blocks from the mall was a great find. Price very reasonable. Sound sleep was tough with multiple trains per hour just outside the window, and an AC fan louder than the trains. For the money I’d do it again, ask for an even numbered room (inside the U shaped building.
